Best time lapse I've seen so far.    

February 15th Storm   Hello All,   Well its been quite a few weeks lately, we've had huge amounts of snow here in New Brunswick, the most I've seen in the 8 years I have lived here. I think in les

I wish our downgrades were like that

I've friends in Fort McMurray and the stories and pictures they're sending is horrific. Utter devastation.

Whilst this warm weather continues look to northern BC for the next outbreak of fires.

Scary and sad times for western Canada and I have a feeling the next few months won't get any better

Odds of a Weekend Tropical Depression Rise; Dodge City Dodges Multiple Tornadoes

Quote

Showers and thunderstorms continue over portions of the Bahamas and nearby waters in association with an upper-level trough interacting with a weakening cold front. On Wednesday morning, NHC designated this area of interest as Invest 91L. This activity is expected to coalesce into an area of low pressure on Friday a few hundred miles north of the Bahama Islands. This low has the potential to develop into a tropical depression as it moves northwest towards the Southeast U.S. coast over the weekend. Sea surface temperatures (SSTs) over the Bahamas are about 28 - 29°C (82 - 84°F), which is 1 - 2°C (1.8 - 3.6°F) above average. These waters are plenty warm enough to support formation of a tropical storm. Phase space diagrams from Florida State University have been consistently showing over the past few days that this storm will be a symmetric warm core system--technical lingo for a storm that is tropical in nature, rather than subtropical or extratropical.

Massive plume of intense heat affecting the west in the coming days. Excessive heat warnings out, 850s of 30c+ across the desert regions.

The forecast for Needles on Saturday is 49c, it could be somewhere squeaks a 50c out.

As others have said, dangerous heat coming up in the SW this weekend under an intense ridge and uppers around 35c.

Palm Springs is forecast to hit 49c, Death Valley 50c, Las Vegas 46/47c. Records will be challenged and I should think broken in places.

Lucky, what you doing in Chicago?

Visiting friends in Bloomington-Normal, but spent yesterday in the windy city - was great.  Storm risk is marginal now for sever, but a lot going on around here (especially the MCS to the south-east) and hopeful for some action over us later.

A welcome rise in pressure and temperature this weekend for British Columbia. The cold low moving away after a week of unseasonal low temperatures and snow even on the North Vancouver Hills for a short time. Picture this morning on Whistler Peak to Peak mountain with much more snow in evidence than the same time last year when the region was affected by drought and heatwave conditions.
