Record colder temperatures "actually illustrates how fast the world is warming."

LOL Ironically, 2008 is on pace to be a slightly cooler year in a steadily rising temperature trend line. Experts say it's thanks to a La Nina weather variation. While skeptics are already using it as evidence of some kind of cooling trend, it actually illustrates how fast the world is warming.

And locally? Friday and Saturday's storm brought cold air with record low maximum temperatures predicted for Sunday. The record low maximum temperature recorded for Sunday is 45 degrees, set in 1932, according to Dean. Temperatures hovered at 43 degrees Sunday afternoon, during what is usually the warmest time of day.
Dean said the break in clouds between storms is often the coldest time, with no cloud cover to trap in heat. A similar situation is predicted to occur between the second and third storms in this series coming from Alaska. The second storm system will arrive late Sunday with showers lingering today and possibly Tuesday.
While conditions temporarily clear Wednesday, there is the possibility for record-breaking low temperatures in the upper 20s. Dean said the record low for that day is 29 degrees set in 1924.
Two more storms from Alaska predicted to hit the North Coast


  1. All it takes for Rose to completely disregard all evidence supporting global warming is a winter storm

  2. Heh - no, I just find it funny that every time Al Gore pops his ugly head up, we have an ice storm.

  3. his ugly fat head.

  4. Rose, it's called "Global Climate Change"! Not global warming.
    If you want to be like Pres. Bush, you could call it enhanced weather modification. Just because you don't understand it, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

  5. Fall air temperatures have climbed to record levels in the Arctic due to major losses of sea ice as the region suffers more effects from a warming trend dating back decades.

    Fall temperatures are at a record 9 degrees Fahrenheit above normal in the Arctic because of the major loss of sea ice in recent years that allows more solar heating in the ocean.

  6. Dred, I feel for ya man. Have you decided what you're going to do to capitalize on this warming trend you''re seeing?

    Will it be bikinis? Tomatoes? Air conditioners?

  7. I make a good living. If I wanted to capitalize on this, I suppose I could get rich growing marijuana.


  8. Is that an admission Dred?

    And Tom, don't you think GW did a great job of dodging the shoes thrown by that moron? Pretty good reflexes!

  9. That I make a good living? Yes.


  10. I think I know who Dred is, Rose. He use to be my neighbor.

  11. Coupla questions for ya, Dred.

    1. Let's say the earth's temperature rises by a degree or three... the temperature at the poles, and glaciers will STILL be well below freezing, so how does that figure into the Goracle's calculations.

    2. Funny thing is, when I put liquid in the freezer, I have to leave room in the container. Can't fill it too full. Why is that? Do you know?
