Europe cold wave deaths hit 200; low-snow winter for the U.S.

Brutal winter cold continues over most of Europe, where at least 200 people have died in a cold wave that began January 26. Hardest hit has been Ukraine, where the temperature bottomed out at -17°F (-27°C) at the capital of Kyiv this morning. It was the second coldest day of the cold wave, behind the -28°C reading of February 2. These temperatures are the coldest winter weather in six years in Ukraine, and at least 101 deaths are being blamed on the cold there. Also hard-hit has been Poland, where 37 people, most of them homeless, have died from the cold. Rome, Italy experienced a rare snowfall today, only its second day with snow during the past fifteen years. Very cold temperatures 10 - 20°C below average will continue for another seven days in Europe before gradually moderating late next week.


Figure 1. Departure of temperature from average as analyzed by the GFS model, for February 2, 2012. Remarkably cold air was present over Europe and western Alaska, while very warm air was over central North America and Siberia. This image is being generated experimentally by wunderground, and will be regularly available on our web site in the future.

Meanwhile, a snow drought for the U.S.
In the U.S., it's been the opposite story, with temperatures 10 - 15°F above average continuing this week over much of the nation. January 2012 is in the weather record books as the 3rd least-snowy January for the contiguous U.S. since snow records began in 1966, and December 2011 ranked as the 11th least snowy December on record. With no major snow storms in the offing over at least the next ten days, it's looking probable that the non-winter of 2011 - 2012 will set numerous record-low seasonal snowfall totals. The National Weather Service sends out a daily "Weather and Almanac" product for several hundred major U.S. cities that we make available on wunderground. I went through yesterday's statistics for those cities that reported measurable snow this winter. Only nine cities out of 166 major U.S. cities in the lower 48 states reported above-average snowfall as of February 1; 157 cities received below-average snowfall. The big winner in the snow sweepstakes has been Alaska, which is boasting 8 of the top 10 locations for heaviest snowfall this winter. While the 27.75 feet of snow that has fallen on Valdez has gotten a lot of attention, more remarkable is the 18.8 feet of snow Yakutat has received. That's more than 12.5 feet above what they usually have by this time of year.



The big losers in the snow stats for this winter are the cities along the lake effect snow belts on the Great Lakes. Most notably, Syracuse, New York is nearly four feet of snow below average for this time of year. Perhaps more exceptional is Williston, North Dakota, which has received just 1.8" of snow this winter--more than two feet below their average for February 1.



Have a super weekend, everyone, and I'll be back Monday with a new post.

An exceptional event in Algiers


Large amounts of snow Fell yuesterday about 10:30 PM ,Algiers and its various neighborhoods covered in a fabulous white snow.Meanwhile,many states knew significant quantities of snow especially in Central northern and Eastern areas.On the other hand,it is likely that weather will get better early next week.

VIIRS Eastern Hemisphere Image - Behind the Scenes

The Suomi NPP satellite is in a polar orbit around Earth at an altitude of 512 miles (about 824 kilometers), but the perspective of the new Eastern hemisphere 'Blue Marble' is from 7,918 miles (about 12,743 kilometers). NASA scientist Norman Kuring managed to 'step back' from Earth to get the big picture by combining data from six different orbits of the Suomi NPP satellite. Or putting it a different way, the satellite flew above this area of Earth six times over an eight hour time period. Norman took those six sets of data and combined them into one image.

NEW DISCUSSION,JUST CAME OUT,LIKE IVE BEEN SAYING THIS BLOB IN THE CARRIBEAN COMBINED WITH A UPPER LEVEL TROUGH WILL BRING US SOME BENEFICIAL RAINS!!


NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIAMI FL
303 PM EST SAT FEB 4 2012

.DISCUSSION...
SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE IS MOVING EAST INTO THE ATLANTIC AS LOW
PRESSURE MOVES INTO THE TENNESSEE VALLEY. THIS WILL ALLOW THE
PRESSURE GRADIENT TO SLOWLY RELAX TONIGHT AND SUNDAY...WITH WINDS
VEERING TO THE SOUTHEAST. ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS WILL
CONTINUE TONIGHT DUE TO THE MODERATE EASTERLY FLOW AND SUFFICIENT
MOISTURE DEPTH. WARM TEMPERATURES CAN BE EXPECTED AGAIN TONIGHT
WITH LOWS IN THE 60S TO AROUND 70. MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES CAN BE
EXPECTED TONIGHT THROUGH THE BEGINNING OF NEXT WEEK DUE TO UPPER
LEVEL CLOUDINESS FROM A LOW LEVEL TROUGH THAT EXTENDS FROM THE
YUCATAN INTO THE CENTRAL/EASTERN GULF. THIS FEATURE WILL MOVE
TOWARDS SOUTH FLORIDA/FLORIDA STRAITS ON SUNDAY INTO MONDAY...WITH
PWATS SLOWLY INCREASING THROUGH THIS TIME. MODEL SOLUTIONS DIFFER
ON HOW FAST AND HOW FAR NORTH THE LOW/MID LEVEL MOISTURE WILL MOVE
INTO THE REGION. THE GFS HAS THE MOISTURE FURTHER NORTH THAN THE
ECMWF ON THE 12Z RUNS...BRINGING THE MOISTURE IN MOST OF THE
REGION LATE SUNDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH MONDAY MORNING. THE ECMWF
ONLY BRINGS IN THE DEEPEST MOISTURE TO THE SOUTHERN PORTION OF THE
REGION. THIS DIFFERS FROM THE 00Z RUN...AND THE 00Z SOLUTION WAS
MORE SIMILAR TO THE GFS. HOWEVER...IT APPEARS THAT MUCH NEEDED
RAINFALL WILL BE MOVING INTO THE REGION LATE SUNDAY THROUGH
MONDAY.

THE RIGHT ENTRANCE REGION OF A WEAK UPPER JET WILL BE OVER THE
REGION SUNDAY AFTERNOON INTO THE SUNDAY EVENING AND THIS WILL
ENHANCE LIFT AT THE SAME TIME MOISTURE IS INCREASING OVER THE
REGION. SO KEPT CHANCE POPS SUNDAY FOR MOST OF SOUTH FLORIDA.
BUMPED UP POPS TO HIGH END CHANCE TO LIKELY FOR THE SOUTHERN AND
SOUTHEAST PORTIONS OF THE CWA FOR SUNDAY NIGHT. ALSO KEPT MENTION
OF THUNDER FOR THE SOUTHERN HALF OF THE REGION FOR SUNDAY
AFTERNOON AND SUNDAY NIGHT. THE DEEPER MOISTURE MAY BE MOVING OUT
OF THE REGION MONDAY MORNING...BUT A WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY IS
EXPECTED TO MOVE TOWARDS SOUTH FLORIDA. THE LOW LEVEL TROUGH MAY
ALSO STAY OVER THE REGION THROUGH MONDAY AFTERNOON. SO BUMPED UP
POPS TO CHANCE TO LIKELY ACROSS THE REGION ON MONDAY. ATTM...IT
APPEARS THE PRECIP AMOUNTS MAY BE ON THE LIGHT TO MODERATE
SIDE...WITH RAINFALL TOTALS OF 1/4 TO 1/2 AN INCH FOR THE NAPLES
AND WEST OF LAKE OKEECHOBEE...AND 1/2 TO 1.5 INCHES FOR THE EAST
COAST METRO REGIONS. WENT BELOW GUIDANCE FOR HIGH TEMPERATURES ON
MONDAY BY A COUPLE DEGREES DUE TO EXPECTED CLOUD COVER AND
RAINFALL.

Brisbane Tropical Cyclone Warning Center
Tropical Cyclone Bulletin
TROPICAL CYCLONE JASMINE (12U)
5:00 AM EST February 5 2012
=========================================

At 4:00 AM EST, Tropical Cyclone Jasmine, Category One (986 hPa) located at 16.9S 151.8E or 640 km east of Cairns and 590 km east northeast of Townsville has 10 minute sustained winds of 45 knots with gusts of 65 knots. The cyclone is reported as moving east at 11 knots.

Dvorak Intensity: T3.0/3.0/D1.0/24 HRS

Gale Force Winds
=================
180 NM from the center in northern quadrant
30 NM from the center in southeastern quadrant
60 NM from the center in southwestern quadrant

Forecast and Intensity
======================

12 HRS: 17.0S 154.0E - 55 knots (CAT 2)
24 HRS: 16.9S 156.3E - 60 knots (CAT 2)
48 HRS: 17.3S 161.6E - 60 knots (CAT 2)
72 HRS: 18.2S 166.4E - 65 knots (CAT 3)

Additional Information
========================

Tropical Cyclone center position based on Willis Island radar. Deep convection persists to the west of the low level circulation center, however showing weak organization. Strongest winds remain to the north of the system. Favorable upper level divergence and decreasing wind shear may lead to gradual intensification over the next 48 hours. The system has increased its easterly movement over the past few hours and is expected to continue moving to the east.

The next tropical cyclone advice/bulletin from Brisbane Tropical Cyclone Warning Center on TC Jasmine will be issued at 1:30 AM UTC..

PlazaRed, That seems to be exactly the case. The cold seems to be centered on about 50 degrees north and runs from just east of the Atlantic Coast all the way across Europe and Asia.

The warmth north of Europe appears to have come from the Atlantic.

This does seem to make sense but does it represent what has actually happened in the real world? I don't know.

Another thing to wonder about is "will this high pressure system hang around for an extended period like the one that turned western Russia into an oven in the summer of 2010?" This cold could be just as destructive.
That pattern looks to remain more or less in place for awhile; the forecast is for more cold over Europe and central Asia--though not as severe as it was this past week--but with warm temps elsewhere, most notably the Arctic and North America (in fact, there are a number of high temperature records being broken in northwestern and north-central Canada today):

"Meanwhile in frigid Europe, what little warmth there is seems to be coming from the North."
I cant speak for central Europe as I am information wise as far away from it as you are but here in the North of England, the temperature is about 0/c =32/F,
the tiny bit of snow we got that was barely visible and did not settle on the ground except on the mountain tops, has turned to rain and the temperature is set to rise to about +9/c =50/f by Wednesday. This has been the total of winter so far here, except for a few frosty mornings.
I have not studied the charts but I would guess that the cold air is a block extending from central Russia to the Atlantic more or less horizontally in the latitudes. The warmer air which as you pointed out is in the north must be going up the Atlantic side of the cold high pressure, being drawn above Europe by the clockwise rotation of the high.
Would this make sense?

The first Hurricane I remember was in Fort Lauderdale in 1948.


The first Hurricane I remember was Flossie in Pointe-A-La-Hache, LA (1956). Over 5 feet of water in the house. Spent part of the night and next day in the attic eating out of a bushel of pecans my parents had stored up there. My uncle came with a boat in the afternoon. Interesting experience for a 9 year old.

Notice the PWS around 6:20.


Harold Lloyd performed many of his own stunts. He lost his thumb and index finger, on his right hand, when a prop bomb turned out to be a real bomb. This happened in 1919 and his future scenes were shot with a prosthetic glove. When you consider that the scene shot in "Safety First" was filmed in 1923, you realize that he did this wearing a prosthetic glove on his right hand. ... Beat that, Chuck Norris!

ASCAT ascending caught only the SW edge, no turning noticed.



And the only vorticity is on the 500MB level, and even that is not well defined.



And the whole system is under 35-40 kts of shear...
