I sent it over... figured it would brighten your day. ;)

Depending on your perspective, we've either been promised or threatened with snow.
I'm being a nay-sayer, because the weather always breaks its promises.
The others are terrified because threats will do that to you.

FWIW my prediction is that parts of Bucks will get snow, especially on higher ground.
We won't, as we are in the Vale.
But of course this is partly me trying to double-bluff the weather - if I say it won't snow, it will, just to prove me wrong :)

Here we're preparing to weather the first big winter storm:

6 meters waves on the shore
winds blowing at 130 km/h with a good probability of building up to 170 km/h

Fortunately the tide amplitude isn't big. Yet some low place have been alerted of possible submersion.

That's the situation right now and previsions for tomorrow are about the same.

News reports state about 400000 houses without electricity this morning.
One cargo ship to the coast with a small pollution due to a ruptured fuel tank.

We're preparing for the next round tonight

New Mapping Tool Reveals Thousands of Record-Breaking Extreme Weather Events in 2011

Interactive Online Map Shows Potential Long-Term Climate Impact in Every State; Prompts Calls for Action

NEW YORK (December 8, 2011) – In 2011, there were at least 2,941 monthly weather records broken in communities throughout the US., as detailed in a new interactive extreme weather mapping tool and year-end review released today by the Natural Resources Defense Council. The powerful web-based tool allows Americans to draw the connections between climate change and extreme weather in the cities and towns in which they live.

“From heat waves to floods to fires, 2011 was a year of extreme weather for communities throughout the United States. This alarming, yet illuminating data is indicative of what we can expect as climate change continues,” said Kim Knowlton, NRDC Senior Scientist who spearheaded the development of the web-based tool. “Actions can be taken today to limit the worst effects of climate change. Our leaders need to make climate change preparedness a priority, if these events will be occurring more frequently and with more intensity.”

The national survey provides a unique aggregation of state-by-state extreme weather, detailing a range of extreme weather events including record-breaking temperatures, rainfall and snowfall in each state. The survey found at least 1,302 heat-related records, 1,090 rainfall records and 549 snowfall records were broken in counties across the nation. Especially hard-hit regions include the Midwest and Northeast, which endured heavy flooding and the greater Texas region, which endured an extended period of wildfires, extreme heat and drought. ....

Wow ! Great videos

Waves breaking on rocky cliffs are great viewing, but can be Darwin at his quickest.

Stay Safe

73 degrees again today! Sweet!

HungLikeJesus 12-16-2011 02:45 PM

53 degrees here. Doesn't that sound nice?

That's inside the house, by the way.

TheMercenary 12-16-2011 02:47 PM

You probably use centigrade.

We had the perfect weather today. Big fat flakes of snow (I was wrong) which did not settle (I was right) when the children came into school.
They tailed off by playtime and we also had a normal lunchtime ("Wet lunch" is a horror as the children are penned into classrooms).

The sun came out mid-morning, so it was a jolly end to the school day, which finished at 13.00.

And with the clouds it was nowhere near as cold as it has been.
I don't mind, but I have some childer who are dispossessed of gloves - their poor little fingers are freezing. And my poor big ears are tired of the moaning.

Don't worry, I intend to do so. And it's not the worst storm I have seen.

In October 1987 (I was in high school), we had one with winds that registered up to 230 km/h before anemometers broke.

Happy Shortest Day of the Year to all North Hemispherics.
Days get longer from here on out.

For South Hemispherics, turnabout is fair play.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 05:10 PM.
