More snow headed for Oregon and northern Sierra’s

More snow headed for Oregon and northern Sierra’s

Winter – WINTER! –  weather advisory.  Up to 15 inches (38 cm) of snow and unseasonably cold

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MEDFORD OR… MAY 20 2016

…LATE SEASON SNOW OVER THE MOUNTAINS TODAY…

Oregon snow - 19May2016
A MOIST AND UNSEASONABLY COLD LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL MOVE OVER THE REGION TODAY. SNOW LEVELS NEAR 4500 FEET THIS MORNING WILL RISE TO NEAR 5500 FEET THIS AFTERNOON… BUT WILL LOWER TO NEAR 4500 FEET AGAIN…

…MODERATE TO HEAVY SNOW AT TIMES…

BARE GROUND… UNPAVED ROADS… AND AREAS THAT STILL HAVE SNOW ON THE GROUND WILL RECEIVE THE HEAVIEST NEW SNOW ACCUMULATIONS.

DUE TO THE TIME OF YEAR AND RECENT MILD WEATHER… THERE IS A HIGHER RISK OF GETTING CAUGHT OFF GUARD BY THIS SUDDEN RETURN TO WINTRY CONDITIONS. EVEN WHERE SNOW DOESN`T FALL… A COLD RAIN CAN BE DANGEROUS TO THOSE NOT PREPARED. BE PREPARED IF VENTURING
INTO THE MOUNTAINS TODAY.

NORTH CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST SISKIYOU COUNTY-
INCLUDING THE CITY OF…TENNANT

…WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 5 AM PDT SATURDAY…

* SNOW ACCUMULATIONS…2 TO 6 INCHES BUT LOCALLY UP TO 15 INCHES ON THE UPPER SLOPES OF MOUNT SHASTA AND MEDICINE LAKE.

* ELEVATION…SNOW MAY ACCUMULATE DOWN TO NEAR 4500 FEET… BUT THE HEAVIEST ACCUMULATION WILL BE ABOVE 5500 FEET.

* LOCATIONS INCLUDE…TENNANT THROUGH THIS MORNING…AND THE MOUNTAINS OF EASTERN SISKIYOU COUNTY FROM MOUNT SHASTA TO THE MEDICINE LAKE THROUGH TONIGHT.

* IMPACTS…SNOWFALL AND REDUCED VISIBILITIES WILL MAKE TRAVEL DIFFICULT IN THE AREA. COLD AND WET CONDITIONS WILL BE DANGEROUS TO THOSE UNPREPARED. DAMAGE TO TREES AND FOLIAGE WITH LEAVES IS POSSIBLE… WHICH COULD AFFECT POWER LINES.

  1. Unseasonal cold and snow in some places, and a lethal heatwave going on in India and Pakistan, temperatures reaching over 51 degrees Celsius mind you, killing the frail and elderly in the population.
    Climate is going to pieces with the increased weakening of the Earthmagnetic field, especially in some areas like the Pacific and South America, where the field is very weak, but fairly strong over Europe and Asia e.g., but the magnetic poles are definitely on the move. The magnetic Northpole has moved over from Alaska to Siberia in a relatively short time and is till speeding up.
    Some scientists expect a polar shift is quite imminent or even overdue, and when that happens, all hell breaks loose for our vulnearable, modern society !

    “EARTH’S MAGNETIC FIELD IS CHANGING: Anyone watching a compass needle point steadily north might suppose that Earth’s magnetic field is a constant. It’s not. Researchers have long known that changes are afoot. The north magnetic pole routinely moves, as much as 40 km/yr, causing compass needles to drift over time. Moreover, the global magnetic field has weakened 10% since the 19th century.”
    “A new study by the European Space Agency’s constellation of Swarm satellites reveals that changes may be happening even faster than previously thought. In this map, blue depicts where Earth’s magnetic field is weak and red shows regions where it is strong:”
    .

    “…the field has weakened by about 3.5% at high latitudes over North America, while it has strengthened about 2% over Asia. The region where the field is at its weakest – the South Atlantic Anomaly – has moved steadily westward and weakened further by about 2%. These changes have occured over the relatively brief period between 1999 and mid-2016.”
    “Earth’s magnetic field protects us from solar storms and cosmic rays. Less magnetism means more radiation can penetrate our planet’s atmosphere. Indeed, high altitude balloons launched by Spaceweather.com routinely detect increasing levels of cosmic rays over California. Perhaps the ebbing magnetic field over North America contributes to that trend.” http://yowusa.com/2016/05/planet-x-signs-8/
    (By the way, I’m not necessarily a Planet X believer as such, but that’s where the info on magnetic fields was taken from that site.)

  2. Well this story is exactly where I live. In My location (Bonanza, Elevation 4200 to 4500 ft.) Light snow / rain mix has been falling all day, Further up the hi way Elevation above 4500ft., 4 to 6 inches is on the ground and it is slowly melting. The winter weather advisory has been extended until tomorrow Sat, till around 11 am. We should expect up to 8 inches at the higher elevation and up to 3 or 4 inches at my level.
    There was NO snow in the southern Cascades when I traveled across them from mid to late in the day today!
    PS. The rain has turned to snow as I write this!

  3. More snow for Montana!

    NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MISSOULA MT
    SAT MAY 21 2016

    THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN MISSOULA HAS ISSUED A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR SNOW AND WIND ABOVE 5500 FEET… WHICH IS IN
    EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO NOON MDT MONDAY.

    * IMPACTS/TIMING: SNOW LEVELS WILL LOWER TONIGHT AND WEST WINDS WILL INCREASE BY SUNDAY MORNING. SNOW LEVELS OF 6000 FEET WILL BE COMMON ON SUNDAY AND MONDAY. HEAVIER PRECIPITATION WILL
    POTENTIALLY LOWER SNOW LEVELS TO 5500 FEET AND POSSIBLY LOWER DURING SUNDAY AND MONDAY MORNINGS.

    * SNOW ACCUMULATIONS: 2 TO 6 INCHES BETWEEN 5500 AND 6000 FEET AND 12 TO 24 INCHES ABOVE 6000 FEET BY MIDDAY MONDAY.

    * WIND: 35 TO 45 MPH WITH GUSTS OVER 50 MPH ABOVE 6000 FEET SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY MORNING. THE COMBINATION OF WIND AND
    SNOW WILL PRODUCE VERY LOW VISIBILITIES AND BLOWING SNOW.
