Temperatures will cool dramatically in the northern hemisphere over the next six months. There will be lots of snow, and the Arctic will freeze up solid.
This forecast does not apply to the southern hemisphere.
(The heat waves are terrible in some parts but I still prefer the warm weather to snow, ice, rain and cold.)
Me too Greg, I can always cool off….
…once I’m cold, I stay that way until late spring
That condo in FL is looking better all the time
I predict that in the northern hemisphere, the Sun will set earlier each night and rise later each morning until around December 21st. Actually, it’s just a scenario, in case Mr Duncan should ask.
You forgot that temperatures are expected….
Oh yes, and we will have lower temperatures (And Thanksgiving and football). Thanks for reminding me Lance. Aint peer review grand!
Gator, what kind of model are you using to make such a bold prediction? And can your model predict beyond December 21st? I bet it can’t!
According to my linear model based upon the best IPCC science, after December 21st the Sun will continue to rise later and set sooner until there is no absolutely more daylight in the northern hemisphere. Our children will wonder what daylight looks like and bats will rule the skies. Smart money will invest in Maglite and glow in the dark frisbees.
I just experienced Chicago’s first cold front of the fall.
Don’t know how to explain it, except the clouds were different than a typical summer frontal passage.
Now begins my ongoing dilemma, after 3 winters with heavy snowfalls, do I buy a 2-stage snowblower or not?
During last years blizzard I shoveled every 2-3 hours, creating a nice depression for the wind to blow the snow into, but the thunder and lightning was cool 🙂
I guess it was good exercise.
Use Alfred Nobel’s little friend to “shovel”. & if you’re worried about them dang coppers, just hire some “disaffected youths” to do your dirty work. You can claim a flash mob did it, & even your local paper won’t bother to report it.
I just bought a nice Poulan 2 stage for this coming winter, at half price (Woohoo!). I too am tiring of the shoveling, I have a 300 foot driveway and while it’s good exercise for now, I am not Benjamin Button. I am thinking that one of the next three winters is going to be one to remember. The last time we had a snow here that shut down cities for days was thirty years ago and patterns are telling me we are due.
I like it—you’re a risk taker!
I moved to Houston from Canada, to avoid the cold. Of course, while looking for a house in February, the water pipes in the hotel froze for 3 days.
If there is a repeat this winter, I have my eye on the Mexican border. (There is no IPCC COPs meeting there this year, is there? That would guarantee cold in Mexico, too.)
I predict that I took my car for a service this morning. I also predict that my wife nagged me 5 minutes ago to take her shopping.
