We finally had snow in the Inland Pac NW but the weather is still odd for this time of year. Stayed in the 20s and 30s for a bit after the snow and storm. However, it's rainy now and more to come. Was 40 degrees today and still is at 9pm.

I agree, OP

Memphis will be 65 tomorrow and 70 on Tuesday....not to mention all the rain storms and tornadoes in the mid south last week

With the exception of yesterday and today its been unseasonable warm...

with only 2 slight snows... slight i say...


Heck bugs are starting to come back out... and I seen spiders...

I've never seen a spider in winter around here...

SPIDERS in winter... The end is nigh lol

Spiders there too?

Saw one yesterday and a few bugs (Memphis)

I was thinking the same thing..."Isn't it a bit early for the bugs?

Houston: We usually have winter when we want to, which is rarely.

Even in the summer it's not hot ENOUGH, so, at 100+ degrees, here comes jalapeno on or in pretty much everything.edible.

I'm surprised no one has invented jalapeno beer.

Pepper spray? You got some chips to go with that?


You can keep your snow.

I think you all should be looking at the arctic sea ice coverage. This together with the continued slowing of the ocean conveyer could put the northern hemisphere into a short ice age. Your weather is very worrying.

Yes and no. I'd like to get another 3-5 years of data before I'd say for sure, but I certainly wouldn't rule out the idea of global cooling. I actually tread more towards the idea of the earth cooling than warming. Fantastic read though!

I have been watching and studying this since 1995. Much of the raw data that was available in '95 has vanished from the web. Ever since the ' Govts charge of the climate change' real raw data has gone! I used to access figures for ice volume and area. The ice volume loss is bloody alarming. While sea ice cover is alarming the ice sheet has little depth. As usual we are kept in the dark and fed on bull dust.

To put it simply, I doubt you have 3-5 years left!

you do bring up a good point about the ice up north and the water flow. i know that it wouldnt be a good thing the water flow slows down or stops and the ice melting. i just dont know the out come of such an event like that. i guess time will tell

Climatological data is available, and those are the only numbers that most people would even consider as a reference. Not only that, majority of that data actually does reflect changes in global climate. To say there's a blackout is a bit too far IMO.

How should I put this: I no longer trust data that is under control of the Govts. It is now so variable. Yes climate data is available but what you don't get is the raw data. You get whatever the Govts want you to get. Where is the Govt data explaining why winter took a holiday? Oh, yea, you don't need to see that, don't worry, it'll be a-ok.

I guess the answer to the OP's question is dependant on where a person is living.

Some areas are freezing their butts off, while other areas are running around in their bikinis.

Climatology reports do not offer analysis of the cause and effect, they just report the data, raw as you say. The numbers are there, you add them up for the month by month, year by year, and they average out.

To accomplish what you're insinuating would require someone to collect their own data via their own instruments over the period of 50+ years. Or is that not what you're saying, you're doing a good job of being misleading. Not to sound disrespectful or anything, I just don't agree that NCDC data is tampered with anymore than any other data, raw or not.

Guess what? This mild winter is going to be the cause of a drastic if not catastrophic increase in insects this year, both those that bother man and field crops.

Monsanto and the makers of Raid products will be so happy.

I'm in Wichita too. It has been unseasonably warm this year. The trees are budding, I have flowers coming up and even saw a goose egg at the park this weekend. Today it is supposed to be a high of 68 degrees. Very weird.

the jetstream has been flat and straight, no Greenland high to direct the arctic air into a southernly direction.

So while the very north (alaska, etc) has been getting totally hammered this winter season, everything south of the jetstream is staying mild and relatively quiet. Until that jetstream moves, we won't have any significant 'normal' winter weather, short of the random alberta clipper moving through.

I think everyone should be furious at the sterile and offensive explanations from the MSM for the 'mild or no winter' some of us are observing.

But what are they supposed to report?

"......good evening everyone, to explain why migratory birds are flying in the opposite direction, there's a huge interplanetary body approaching Earth from the south that is sucking the heat accross the whole solar system, raising temperatures of all planets at a rapid pace, so if you just purchased the brand new 2010 Yamaha RS Vector LTX GT, sucks to be you..........here's Ted with sports........."

I think this is the part where we all unanymously go "WHAT?!" Did I miss something somewhere in my gazes at the night sky? What is the media SUPPOSED to be reporting other than, it's weather, deal with it.

Yes, the weather is strange this winter.

Here in MI. we should be 10-20 during the day and 0-10 at night but it's been it the 30's and 40's and not even freezing at night. The 7 day forecast shows 30's, 40's.

It just feels strange imo. I've lived in this same area 34yrs. I also heard of possible record high temps. today on the news across the nation. Anyone know how many we've had so far this winter?

Yes, we too, in northeast Ohio had no winter, but had a spring... birds... quakes... tornadoes... tsunamis... volcanoes... ufo sightings... disclosure... I could go on & on... oh poop, it's also 2012... but I'm trying to convince myself that... nothing's... gonna... happen... right? Everything's just all one big giant huge coincidence... right? Please say yes, I don't wanna die!

i hear you there.... i live in the north of scotland (sometimes on islands too)... and am used to cold, harsh winters. usually we get snow from mid november to anywhere between february to april !! this year the weather has been REALLY warm for winter... had 3 days of very light snow all set apart by at least a week or so... usually its 4-6 ft of snow, temps drop low (the lowest we had was -26C - that was chilly!) but this year, none of that... barely any frosts either... i have mentioned to a few people that i find it fairly disconcerting that we havent had any sort of winter this year, it makes me wonder why? what is causing it? is it global warming? is it something thats been sprayed into the air over a long period of time, and is now affecting our weather system?


whatever it is i dont like it... as for summer i have no idea what it may bring... hopefully nothing bad, it would be nice to have a warm summer tho, its been a few years dince we had a nice one... fingers crossed !!
