  1. What’s the betting the NOAA, UK Met, Aus BOM claim 2015 as the warmest ever once the Aus winter finishes around September/October. The Aus winter is used to inflate the av tempretures for the Norther Winters.

  2. If you wait untill the spring you will be told that the weather was nice and the temps were not that bad when adjusted, (sark)

      My daughters live in Richmond and are freezing.

      To be safe, I think they need to move south of Jacksonville, at the very least.

  3. From landscheidt.org today (23/2/2015) comes the following:

    “A third spotless day is recorded with no single spot over 336 pixels. The next week will be one to watch.”

    So yet again, the sun has fallen absolutely silent, and has been so for three days. This comes at the presumed height of the current solar maximum in April ’14. We can see that the F10.7cm flux – a measure of UV radiation – is down approximately 22% from just 3 weeks ago. NASA’s own website (http://solarscience.msfc.nasa.gov/predict.shtml) states that the F10.7 flux is “an important indicator of solar activity because it tends to follow the changes in the solar ultraviolet that influence the Earth’s upper atmosphere and ionosphere.” Decreasing UV radiation, lower solar winds, allow for more cosmic radiation from interstellar space to interact with the upper atmosphere and leads to greater cloud formation. More clouds means more sunlight refracted before hitting the surface of the planet, which leads to more cooling effects. So isn’t it interesting that the coldest month on record across a large portion of the eastern CONUS comes at the same time and we may be setting up for a cooler-than-normal spring? Not to mention, but there’s still a lot of volcanic activity going on – Sinabung in Indonesia reportedly had a sub-plinian eruption reaching 45,000ft (13.7km) into the stratosphere:

    Keep your long underwear handy a little while longer.

  4. Send the info to the UK’s DAILY MAIL and DAILY TELEGRAPH please.

    Do you know that lots of Europeans…including Brits…..DO NOT REALISE THAT THE AMERICAN TEMPERATURES ARE IN FAHRENHEIT…BECA– USE WE ARE NOW — USED TO CENTIGRADE OR CELSIUS!

    SO WHEN THEY SEE MINUS 3, SAY……THEY THINK “THAT’S NOT VERY COLD !!”

    THEY DO NOT REALISE THAT IT IS MINUS 3 FAHRENHEIT…..WITH FREEZING POINT AT PLUS 32 FAHRENHEIT !!

    PLEASE MAKE IT CLEAR YOU ARE MEASURING IN FAHRENHEIT, PLEASE ! SAY SO !!

    • I always try to give °F and °C.

      For what it is worth it is snowing in mid North Carolina ( 35.5°N) with a low today of 23 °F (minus 5°C.) Normal low is 35 °F (1.7°C) I should have my animals grazing on grass not staring at snow.
