    It's ridiculous-our highs this week are lower than the average low for this time of year. Hate it...already flashing back to last winter's "Polar Vortex," shitstorm...

    Not exactly like a polar vortex. Larger area of blocking and it's more western. If it holds through the winter, which it looks like the drivers of this aren't/can't change too soon so it will, could be a hell of a winter.
    Hope you like skiing.

    Toronto only got a few centimetres... Buffalo got a ton of snow. The distance accross lake Ontario from Toronto and Buffalo is 60 miles. The snow fall variance is significant

    Hawg, don't worry, I'll forgive cyclelicious for starting another weather thread.

    I'll even share a biking picture from last night.

    I know it takes an unusual weather pattern to throw lake effect northward into Toronto.

    Buffalo is getting ready for another round of significant snow tonight into tomorrow. There are tons of storm pics out there if you, or anyone, is so inclined.

    5-6' in some spots.

    Man, this winter sh!t sucks...it was only 70 here today and its gonna get into the low 40's tonight!
    I gotta find a long sleeve shirt for tomorrows ride. Luckily I'll still be ok with just shorts and knee pads.

    FWIW, yes I will remember this smugness in 6 months when NY is a balmy 75, and its 115 here in AZ. What goes around, comes around.

    Edit: for real though- that snowstorm is nuts. A buddy of mine lives up there and i saw pics from his FB....no words..completely insane.

    What's crazy to me about the Buffalo snow is that areas behind the big lake effect wall of snow--as seen in the pics--got over 6 feet of snow. A few miles away, outside the lake effect area, there was about 8 inches, at least according to what I read yesterday. Some serious local phenomenon at work there.

    Its when relatively warm air moves over a large body of water, passes over cooler land and dumps all the moisture as snow. As Buffalo knows, it can create extraordinary localized weather patterns. Something like this happens outside Salt Lake City and that's part of the reason there is such great skiing in that area.

    In the begining of the winter when the lakes are still warm enough and not frozen over, they pump moisture into the passing air and it gets dumped downstream. The bigger the contrast between warm water/cold air (condensation), and for the most part the slower the air is moving over that water allowing it more time to gather moisture, the more devastating the snowfall. So this works independent from any storms, and pretty much shuts down once the lakes freeze over.

    I've lived in it my entire life and still find it fascinating. Others have explained it and I would add that the 'bands' of snow are relatively narrow. I can literally look up the road and see a snowstorm, yet will not get any accumulation at my house.

    Likewise, it will look like a 'white-out' at my place, and if I can manage to leave I will find sunny skies less than a mile away.

    What you're seeing in Buffalo (not far from me) is a stationary and fully active snow band dumping 3-4" of snow per hour for days at a time.
    The only important thing these days, is rhythm and melody. Rhythm...and melody.

    6 feet already and 3 more expected is what I just read on CNN.

    Good lord, that's like 3 years of normal snowfall. Will this empty the lake?

    When I was in about 6th or 7th grade some kids started to make a snowman sized snowball in a field out back behind the school. But rather than using said ball for a snowman we just kept rolling it around. We rolled it for a few days and that sucker steadily grew. I don't remember exactly how big it got but it was taller than all of us kids and required an army of idiots to keep rolling it. Finally the vice principal put a stop to it. Safety reasons or something. But that ball got real big.

    I doubt it. I think all they are going to find is people frozen in various positions like they did in Pompeii.

    There may be no visible signs of life now but that's because nobody can leave their houses. Therefore they're lovin' the ones they're with. Its carnal in Buffalo right now. Epic!!

    In that case I'm looking for some interesting Pompeii-like figures. Better hide the children because its going to be awkward carrying those figures of the frozen horndogs out of all the houses.

    I believe 10 deaths so far.

    Some areas south of Buff have about 7 feet of snow!

    The Bills are heading to Detroit to play the Jets. They put out an all-call yesterday for fans to come help shovel out Wilson Stadium for 10$/hr plus a ticket to the game. Pretty lame and downright ratchet of the NFL to make that proposition in the middle of a state of emergency.
    The only important thing these days, is rhythm and melody. Rhythm...and melody.

    It really is mindblowing what's going on in Buffalo right now. The first thing I thought of when there was no decision on moving the Bills game is that even if somehow they could have played the game in Buffalo that would be BS to tax the already stretched city services. I'm happy that they finally came to the decision to move the game.

    Now I worry about warming temps. Heavy snow = collapsed structures. Not to mention the runoff could cause problems.

    Best thing they could hope for is a long cold spell so that the snow can be moved from structures and hauled away while solid. A massive melt off will be a disaster.

    That's what they're assessing now; potential collapses. The forecasted rains could spell some serious shizznit for residents. Just think of the weight of the snow, and then add liquid precipitation into it. It becomes one huge wet blanket.

    Out of those 10 deaths, I wonder how many of them were heart attacks from shoveling snow.

    Last night on the news they were talking about the weather in Sydney, Australia. The previous day the temps got up to 44C (that's 111.2F) and then yesterday they had a massive electrical storm with lightning strikes all over the city.

    Anyone heard from Tone's lately? He would have been in the thick of it. Or Emu?

    Tone's has been extremely scarce for the last year maybe. He's checked in a couple times but that's about it. I assumed he had an unfortunate accident in a dungeon somewhere. emu is regular though.

    Those are some wicked temps btw.

    If you are that bent on eating hookers, get some trannies, they are meatier. Convenient thing with winter storms is that you can just store leftover meat outside.

    The media is going crazy about all the hot and unstable weather here in Oz, but in SE Queensland it seems like business as usual. We always get some hot weather in November and then again in January. Its hovering about 30 degrees C for the most part, which is nothing special, but it did feel quite oppressive last Saturday digging trail at 34 degrees and moderate humidity. Honestly, despite a lot of random "record temperatures" being reported, I don't think things have been as hot over the last 5 years as they were most of the time when I was a kid just north of Sydney.

    Seems from those snippets that the season is a little later this year and that has been the case over the last couple of years. The problem with these comparisons is that they do not reflect a stable environment. The population of Sydney in 1976 was circa 3 million. It is now >4.6 million with the obvious increase in urbanisation that goes with that. With urbanisation comes microclimate change. With that comes dramatic variations depending on wind direction, radiation and reflected heat. If you measured water runoff from Sydney as a whole in 1976 and 2014 it would be logical to say rainfall was higher now, but that would be a false conclusion.

    The Weather Thread-sydney-1.jpgThe Weather Thread-sydney.jpg

    Weatherspark does not seem to have data from appropriate semi-rural areas like Wyong north of Sydney. I thought about Thredbo in the Snowy Mountains, but construction of Lakes Eucumbene and Jindabyne to the east and the network of dams west of the main range have altered the climate in that area even more than urbanisation of Sydney.

    I remember a run of Christmases in Lake Macquarie from the late seventies to the late eighties with temps over 38 every year, but that means nothing. Also, for an older bloke, 1976 is not all that long ago.

    Jeez, you Ozies ever hear of birth control, jk
    Yup, tis amazing how humans and their landscape changes and activities can change weather locally. I pointed to and picked 1976 because so far this 2014 winter (ours) is closest resembling 76. Also because you pointed to the media making hoopla out of OZ recent temps, and the temps of 76 were right around average, as they are now. If anything they are a bit lower now, as compared to then. I haven't researched or learned much about what drives your Oz climate admittedly so, but wouldn't be surprised if it's similar to what was happening this time of year in 76.

    Maybe these pics will warm the Hawg

    One from an afternoon this week and one from a nearly 7PM tonight (no daylight saving here). Digging buddy test riding a new section of trail that is only half complete. It was beach weather, as usual on the Gold Coast. Only we know why we were digging in the bush and not lolling at the beach.

    The Weather Thread-p1150732.jpgThe Weather Thread-p1150786.jpg

    In case you aint warm yet Hawg, we also built a new BBQ today and test rode that too tonight (well after 7). Hawg is always invited to our BBQ............

    By the way, it's still 24C in the house and about 20 outside here at 11PM.

    Fog in Las Vegas. I haven't seen fog around here in years. Our humidity levels are usually too low.
    It's cool though. It reminds me of the Bay Area.

    yeah wow. looks like it may be a cat 5 by the time it makes landfall. If it continues westerly the Philippines will get clobbered. If it turns northerly, which is looking less likely, as far away as Canada could be effected. The Philippines weather bureau is a mess, and they're having trouble with the track, and especially the timing of this event, as well as getting info out.

    a persistent jet stream looks likely to bring many more rain events into the pacific northwest, with the potential for some to dip southward over the next few weeks.

    Wow, that does not sound good. I've had a couple times when my 20 min commute turned into 3 hours plus because of snow. Incredibly frustrating.

    Today is training rest day so I shovelled!

    I've been watching the Doppler radar. There is a giant cell parked over the entire Bay Area and it hasn't really moved at all.

    Yes, got 'Mike' the Motorhome up at the house. It's usually parked about 200 feet from the river that runs thru town. I dont think my spot would put it under water as it a little higher, the ones closer might get water on the skirts. the rest of our stuff is covered and on higher ground. but getting to it is how i got the pics.

    these are pics of the Flood 10 yrs ago here. We lost a lot of carpet and drywall in the buildings that time.




    this is what it looks like when the Creek in the Video above over flows. That's Hwy 101 back there.

    the rain has pretty well stopped around here this morning, should just be on-off light showers.

    Edit: Strike that ! it's going to be heavy dumps at times with lightning !. Whoot.
    Just got hit with a cell and it's overflowing the gutters and sounds like a train.

    The rivers are at flood stage all today and then start receding tomorrow.
    I'm gonna go out in a bit and see how it looks.

    Stay Safe you SoCal peeps. ! and the Rockies are in for a dumping in a couple days.

    When we moved to N. Virginia for a year, we took our cats. The first time it snowed we let them out on the front porch, and they just sat there and looked at us like "you suck."

    We're not getting anything like you did, but it started in my 'hood as one huge dump at around 6:30 this morning. 30 minutes later the drive to school & work was pretty treacherous with street flooding & some hydroplaning. Fortunately I can take lightly-used surface streets and stay off the freeways where all the accidents are.

    It was blowing and raining like a 'mother here in Point Loma when I finally crawled out of bed at 7 AM.
    Now it's raining again at 9am.

    That's probably for NorCal. SoCal needs another 8-10" before the reservoirs here fill up.

    We are taking our turn now. It started around 2-3am here. It has let up but it was gnarly for a few hours with very strong winds as the front passed by.

    But not until they:

    *get assistance from FEMA
    *file an "act of God" claim against the city
    *hire an attorney
    *post false accusations on FB
    *have a contractor create an over inflated bid so that they can split the difference after the actual costs to rebuild
    *be interviewed on a live News broadcast
    *file false death certificates so that they can stop paying taxes

    That's how we roll in this state.

    Just bugs me when I hear from the news and media that a "pineapple express" is hitting cali. It's simply not what is happening and gives meteorologists a bad name. Do they even look at what the jet stream is doing, or that the tropics have been bone dry during this time.
    What has been happening is the jet stream is moving air across very cold Asia, then it's moving over the very warm waters that'r piled up on North America's west coast, and walah. Looks like we'll have at least another week of this, and socal might get in on this again too.

    Is that in the Pacific or is that a lake? You had a great view of the water spout. This must be some sort of record month for you guys.

    That's a cool pic. For whatever reason I always associated water spouts with the Atlantic, Caribbean or the Gulf of Mexico but certainly not SoCal. Hope things settle down a bit down your way.

    I agree it is not a pineapple express, which starts in the south tropics and angles north carrying warm wet cells of weather from Australia to the US. The current jetstream starts in central Asia, then covers north eastern Asia and crosses Japan to dip southward before stalling and then re-emerging with a north eastern course - too warm for dry snow by the time it hits the US. Hokkaido is getting crystal pow from cold air going over a mini version of the Pacific between the mainland and Japan.

    From Australia? Really?

    They always call moisture from the general direction of Hawaii to be Pineapple Express. Whatever it is.

    Except "whatever it is" it's not a cell, nor coming from the tropics, therefore not correctly labeled a pineapple express.
    It's similar to the storm after storm cali got in 1977. With the jet stream going across a brutally cold Asia, traveling eastward. Maintaining it's cold because of cold western pacific waters, then running into very warm waters in the eastern pacific right before making landfall along America's west coast. If it doesn't get dumped on the coast, it will get dumped before it makes it over the mountains, and leave tons of snow.The Weather Thread-650x366_12141631_hd21.jpg

    Yeah, Japan is getting hammered with snow this year. Should be measured by damage response, and crisis management, rather than cm or inches.

    Water spouts happen anywhere the water temp is high enough. They are common all over the world.

    Looks like direction from Hawaii, lower left corner, and looks like them calling it Pineapple Express is right, is not it?

    Would agree that a Madden Julian Oscillation, with a jet stream similar to what Ridnparadise correctly described, could help produce a pineapple express like event, but that would still have to bring in moisture from the tropics to be considered a pineapple express, because that's what makes it a pineapple express, which is not what happened with cali's last storm.

    here's a pic of what that could look likeThe Weather Thread-mjo_north_america_rain.png

    Your pic shows the polar jet stream traveling southeast, then turning before picking up moisture from near the coast. Which is what happened, what Ridnparadise correctly commented on, and not a pineapple express.

    My first pic shows an example of how the polar jet stream is involved with producing a pineapple express, if it carries moisture from the tropics with it.

    My second pic shows how the subtropical jet stream gets involved to produce an express, but it would still need to bring moisture from the tropics with it, because that's what defines it as being a pineapple express, or at least used to be.

    Guess if you want to consider any moisture that gets carried by the jet stream from any waters between the Hawaiian island and the west coast of America to be an express, which some people believe to be the case. Than pretty much anytime it rains there it's a pineapple express, no?

    Well, if it looks like Hawaii got a boner for California, that's a Pineapple Express in my book. Don't care what you weather geeks think, you are wrong all the time anyway.

    It's ramped up to about 3-4 inches an hour for the last 20 mins and still going.

    Over the last few days this is looking more likely
    Messy Christmas weather possible for GTA - Toronto - CBC News

    #Santabomb winter storm predicted for Northeastern U.S. at Christmas | Watts Up With That?

    Couldn't link that link you posted but interested where they'r getting that info of "continued arctic sea ice loss". Because the AMO (atlantic multidecadal oscillation) is expected to, and showing signs of, flipping back to a cooler phase, as the pdo (pacific) did a few years ago. Also arctic sea ice is returning to normal, especially in summertime Arctic Sea Ice News and Analysis | Sea ice data updated daily with one-day lag which further supports that this flip will occur, and right on schedule btw.

    The waviness in the jet streams is what is causing the weather extremes. Which is a result of lower solar activity, and correctly predicted to do so by those who look to solar activity's effect on the jet stream. A flatter jet stream also coincides with el nino events, which we've been having less of, and further supports that the amo will follow the pdo and flip to cooler. Throughout our records it shows a pattern of el ninos (warmer), and la ninas (cooler) happen more regularly, and with more intensity over decades, as a cycle. https://www.john-daly.com/soi-127.gif So we should expect less frequent el ninos, and given what our current solar cycle is doing, Current Solar Activity Cycle Is Weakest in a Century we're not getting any help there.

    But this is only a guess based on what i'v learned. The only thing that is certain when it comes to predicting the weather, let alone the climate, is that no one knows and time will tell us.

    It was 79 degrees here today in beautiful sunny So Cal. The forecast for the foreseeable future is more of the same. I actually turned on the A/C in my truck today.

    I heard it from somebody down here in the USA who read on the internet that skiing will become illegal in Canaduh in 2015. Is that true?

    Fog is not unusual where I live but today it was very thick and reminded me of San Fransisco type fog. Usually it's just misty cloud cover but today it was a huge fog bank. My drive in to work was sketchy, I could hardly see the lines on the road.

    Here's a pic from my office with Catalina Island peeking through:
