"We warned at the start of ZetaTalk, in 1995, that unpredictable weather extremes, switching about from drought to deluge, would occur and increase on a lineal basis up until the pole shift. Where this occurred steadily, it has only recently become undeniable. ZetaTalk, and only ZetaTalk, warned of these weather changes, at that early date. Our early warnings spoke to the issue of global heating from the core outward, hardly Global Warming, a surface or atmospheric issue, but caused by consternation in the core. Affected by the approach of Planet X, which was by then starting to zoom rapidly toward the inner solar system for its periodic passage, the core was churning, melting the permafrost and glaciers and riling up volcanoes. When the passage did not occur as expected in 2003 because Planet X had stalled in the inner solar system, we explained the increasing weather irregularities in the context of the global wobble that had ensued - weather wobbles where the Earth is suddenly forced under air masses, churning them. This evolved by 2005 into a looping jet stream, loops breaking away and turning like a tornado to affect the air masses underneath. Meanwhile, on Planet Earth, droughts had become more intractable and deluges positively frightening, temperature swings bringing snow in summer in the tropics and searing heat in Artic regions, with the violence of storms increasing in number and ferocity."

ZETATALK

 

From the ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for February 4, 2012:

 

The wobble seems to have changed, as the temperature in Europe suddenly plunged after being like an early Spring, Alaska has its coldest temps ever while the US and much of Canada is having an extremely mild winter. India went from fatal cold spell to balmy again. Has the Earth changed position vs a vs Planet X to cause this? [and from another] Bitter cold records broken in Alaska - all time coldest record nearly broken, but Murphy's Law intervenes [Jan 30] http://wattsupwiththat.com/2012/01/30/bitter-cold-records-broken-in-alaska Jim River, AK closed in on the all time record coldest temperature of -80°F set in 1971, which is not only the Alaska all-time record, but the record for the entire United States. Unfortunately, it seems the battery died in the weather station just at the critical moment. While the continental USA has a mild winter and has set a number of high temperature records in the last week and pundits ponder whether they will be blaming the dreaded "global warming" for those temperatures, Alaska and Canada have been suffering through some of the coldest temperatures on record during the last week.

There has been no change in the wobble pattern, the wobble has merely become more severe. Nancy noted a Figure 8 format when the Earth wobble first became noticeable, in early 2005, after Planet X moved into the inner solar system at the end of 2003. The Figure 8 shifted along to the east a bit on the globe between 2005 and 2009, (the last time Nancy took its measure) as Planet X came closer to the Earth, encountering the magnetic N Pole with a violent push earlier in the day. But the pattern of the Figure 8 remained essentially the same. So what changed recently that the weather patterns became noticeably different in late January, 2012?

The N Pole is pushed away when it comes over the horizon, when the noon Sun is centered over the Pacific. This regularly puts Alaska under colder air, with less sunlight, and thus the historically low temps there this January, 2012 as the wobble has gotten stronger. But by the time the Sun is positioned over India, the N Pole has swung during the Figure 8 so the globe tilts, and this tilt is visible in the weather maps from Asia. The tilt has forced the globe under the hot air closer to the Equator, warming the land along a discernable tilt demarcation line.

The next loop of the Figure 8 swings the globe so that the N Pole moves in the other direction, putting the globe again at a tilt but this time in the other direction. This tilt is discernable in weather maps of Europe, again along a diagonal line. Depending upon air pressure and temperature differences, the weather on either side of this diagonal line may be suddenly warm or suddenly cold. The tilt and diagonal line lingers to affect much of the US and Canada, but the Figure 8 changes at this point to be an up and down motion, pulling the geographic N Pole south so the US is experiencing a warmer than expected winter under a stronger Sun. Then the cycle repeats, with the magnetic N Pole of Earth pushed violently away again as the Sun is positioned over the Pacific.

 

From the ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for April 6, 2013:

 

Would the Zetas be able to let us know what is causing the early break-up of the Arctic Ice, the ice seems to have taken on a swirling pattern at the same time, would this be wobble related? [and from another] http://www.vancouversun.com/news/national/Canada+Arctic+cracks+spec... The ice in Canada’s western Arctic ripped open in a massive “fracturing event” this spring that spread like a wave across 1,000 kilometres of the Beaufort Sea. Huge leads of water – some more than 500 kilometres long and as much as 70 kilometres across – opened up from Alaska to Canada’s Arctic islands as the massive ice sheet cracked as it was pushed around by strong winds and currents. It took just seven days for the fractures to progress across the entire area from west to east. [and from another] http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/IOTD/view.php?id=80752&src=iot... A high-pressure weather system was parked over the region, producing warmer temperatures and winds that flowed in a southwesterly direction. That fueled the Beaufort Gyre, a wind-driven ocean current that flows clockwise. The gyre was the key force pulling pieces of ice west past Point Barrow, the northern nub of Alaska that protrudes into the Beaufort Sea.


The Figure 8 formed by the N Pole during the daily Earth wobble has shifted somewhat to the East, due to Planet X positioned more to the right of the Earth during its approach. This was anticipated, and well described in ZetaTalk, the Earth crowding to the left in the cup to escape the approach of Planet X, so the angle between these two planets would change slightly. This shift of the Figure 8 to the East is due to the push against the Earth’s magnetic N Pole occurring sooner each day than prior. Thus instead of occurring when the Sun is high over the Pacific, over New Zealand, it is now occurring when the Sun is high over Alaska. All the wobble points have shifted eastward accordingly.

This has brought a lingering Winter to the western US, and a changed sloshing pattern to the Arctic waters. Instead of Pacific waters being pushed through the Bering Straits into the Arctic when the polar push occurs, the wobble is swinging the Arctic to the right, and then later to the left, creating a circular motion in the waters trapped in the Arctic. Since the Earth rotates counterclockwise, the motion also takes this path. This is yet another piece of evidence that the establishment is hard pressed to explain. They are attempting to ascribe this to high pressure and wind, all of which are not new to the Arctic, but this circular early breakup of ice in the Arctic is new.

High winds in Michigan knock out power to 1mn customers

High winds in Michigan knock out power to 1mn customers
Wind gusts of more than 60 miles per hour downed thousands power lines across Michigan, leaving 10 percent of its residents without power. Many schools were closed and reports were coming in of damage to numerous properties.

Crews are working to restore power after high winds hit the state on Wednesday and knocked out electrical service in Michigan and several Great Lake states.

"Near hurricane force sustained winds pounded our state for over 10 hours. This is the largest weather event in DTE’s 100-year history," DTE Energy said during a press conference on Thursday. DTE said 4,000 lines were downed, and they had more than who are working to restore power.

DTE said because of the unusual warm weather, as well as significant rainfall, the ground is very soft and saturated and coupled with the high winds caused many trees to uproot falling on poles and downing power lines causing widespread outages.

Detroit-based DTE Energy Co said 700,000 of its customers lost power in southwest Michigan and more than 670,000 were without service early Thursday. While Consumers Energy Co (CMS_pb.N), another Michigan utility company, said more than 300,000 of its customers were without power too.

The company said the recovery will take days, and 90 percent will have power by Sunday, according to Detroit Free Press.

Thousands are without power in metro Detroit and the surrounding area, with a High Wind Warning in effect.

Strong winds fanned a blaze that killed five people in a Detroit apartment building and pushed a plane carrying members of the University of Michigan basketball team off a runway during takeoff southwest of Detroit.

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder activated the state’s Emergency Operations Center to monitor and share information about the storm damage and power outages across the state.

“As Michiganders are struggling with storm damage and power outages from some of the extreme winds that are blowing through the state, our first priority is the safety and security of residents,” Snyder said Wednesday in a statement“Utility companies have been spending much of the afternoon just trying to get a handle on how many lines are down and how best to restore power as quickly as possible.”

Gov. Snyder tweeted it was never safe to refuel a generator while it was running.

Michigan State Police issued cautions to residents over non-working traffic lights, and over downed power lines and standing water.

Powerful windstorm batters France, killing 2 and leaving 600 000 homes without power

Powerful windstorm batters France, killing 2 and leaving 600 000 homes without power

Severe weather, including snowfalls and hurricane-force winds, has been affecting the central-southern and south-eastern areas of the France over the past 48 hours, causing at least two fatalities. Some 600 000 properties lost electricity, the highest such number since a monster storm in 1999. Severe weather is forecast to continue affecting the country over the next 24 hours. The storm, named Zeus, will then exit into the Mediterranean Sea and rapidly deepen as it moves toward Italy. Severe to extremely severe wind gusts are expected this evening and tonight.

This powerful windstorm was produced by rapidly deepening cyclone coming from the British Isles toward Northern France this morning. An intense sting jet has developed within the cyclone, Severe Weather Europe reports, traveling right across Brittany, NW France.

Meteo France has updated the number of departments on Orange alert to 31 this morning and urged residents to be vigilant, stay off the rooftops and secure objects that are liable to be blown away.

The departments on Orange alert, as of Monday morning, March 6, are: Cantal, Corse-du-Sud, Haute-Corse, Loire, Haute-Loire, Lozère, Puy-de-Dôme, Rhône, Allier, Charente, Charente-Maritime, Cher, Corrèze, Côtes-d'Armor, Creuse, Finistère, Ille-et-Vilaine, Indre, Indre-et-Loire, Loire-Atlantique, Maine-et-Loire, Mayenne, Morbihan, Deux-Sèvres, Vendée, Vienne, Haute-Vienne, Alpes-Maritimes, Dordogne, Gironde, and Var.

The agency said that significant damage could be caused by the wind as well as disruptions to local traffic. There is also a possibility of cuts to electricity and telephone lines, it warned.

The town of Camaret, in Brittany, saw record-breaking winds of 193 km/h (120 mph) during Monday morning. Winds reaching 191 km/h (119 mph) were recorded in Ouessant, 180 km/h (112 mph) in l’Ile de Groix and 170 km/h (105 mph) in Pointe du Raz.

As of 07:00 UTC on March 6, local media reported two deaths, including one in the municipality of Seyne-sur-Mer and one in Marseille (Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur). Two injuries in the Aveyron Department (Occitanie Region) and one person missing in Marseille have also been reported.

Tens of thousands have lost power by 12:00 UTC today. By the end of the day, some 600 000 properties lost electricity, according to power distributor Enedis. It was the highest such number since a monster storm in 1999 that left scores dead and three million households without power.

Over the next 24 hours, severe weather is forecast to continue affecting the country. 

The storm will exit into the Mediterranean Sea, redevelop and intensify late March 6 and into March 7 as it moves toward Italy. Severe to extremely severe wind gusts this evening and tonight.

Deckhand captures stunning images of monster waves crashing into the Manly ferry - as wild weather hit Sydney at the weekend

  • A Sydney deckhand captured the incredible moment the Manly ferry was thrown around on rough surf 
  • There were horrendous conditions on Sydney Harbour over the weekend with enormous swell battering boats
  • It gave ferry worker Haig Gilchrist, 47, the chance to hone his photography skills as the ferry was smashed 
  • Monster waves were a result of weather system rolling through the state that will last throughout the week

Sydney deckhand has captured amazing images of the Manly ferry being swamped by monster waves. 

Horrendous conditions on Sydney Harbour over the weekend gave ferry worker Haig Gilchrist the chance to hone his photography skills.

A stunning image he managed to snap amongst the chaos shows a huge wall of water about to crash into the side of the ferry.

'East Coast Low intensifying,' Mr Gilchrist captioned the photo he shared on Instagram, later commenting: 'Great day to be working.' 

The image has taken the internet by storm, with hundreds of commenters praising his talents as a photographer.

Others were more interested in the damage the monster wave had caused.

'Amazing, so what happened next?' one commented. 

Another snap taken over the weekend shows the bow of the ferry almost completely disappearing as it travelled through Sydney Heads.

The monster waves were a result of a developing weather system rolling through the state.

While the Sydney ferries could struggle with more dangerous swell, surfers will embrace 'Big Wednesday,' with massive offshore waves.

The swell is set to peak at three to four metres in some areas, with even larger and stronger conditions further offshore. 

The warning comes just days after two men drowned in separate incidents at Bondi and Bellinger, near Coffs Harbour.

'The best advice we can give people is to be aware of their environment and the changing conditions,' Surf Life Saving NSW operations manager Andy Kent said in a statement on Sunday.

Floods and landslides cause havoc across the Andes in Peru

Trapped by the floods... It took a team of rescue workers and volunteers to get this horse back on dry land. Similar scenes are playing out across much of Peru after months of heavy rain. 

Here in in the greater Lima district of Lunahuana, a landslide crashed down across a highway. Fortunately no vehicles were caught underneath. Close by in the town of Chosica, a ravine collapsed, sending muddy water gushing across the road. 

Landslides and floods have left residents desperate for help. In Piura, they're trying to salvage their belongings after rainfall unlike anything they've seen in 30 years. The floods have already killed 26 people across the country and displaced almost 250,000. And it could get worse with more rain predicted.

Hundreds dying from hunger as severe drought grips Somalia

Hundreds dying from hunger as severe drought grips Somalia

110 people have died from hunger in the past 48 hours in just one region of Somalia as severe drought gripped the country, causing hunger crisis. The death toll was announced by prime minister Hassan Ali Khaire today and it comes from the Bay region in the southwest part of the country alone. Humanitarian agencies report worrying similarities to the 2011 famine, in which nearly 260 000 Somalis lost their lives. Somali elders say they have never seen drought as severe as this one.

On Tuesday, February 28, 2017, just a week after his inauguration, President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo has declared the drought a national disaster. The declaration comes amid an ongoing war with al-Shabab and is expected to be a trial for all those involved in Somalia's struggles. It will test the international community’s response, the government's ability to assist, and the strength of security provided by the African Union forces, Al Jazeera explains.

In the far north of Somalia, three years with little rain has had increasingly disastrous effects for a population reliant on the land. The parched earth has failed to produce food for the camels and goats that the people depend on for their income, meat, and milk for their children.

Critical health services are needed for 1.5 million people currently affected by drought conditions and a worsening food crisis, according to the WHO.

The humanitarian situation in Somalia continues to deteriorate, the organization said, and there is a high risk that the country will face its third famine in 25 years. More than 6.2 million people – half of the total population – are in urgent need of humanitarian aid, including almost 3 million facing a food security crisis. Nearly 5.5 million people are at risk of contracting waterborne diseases, more than half of whom are women and children under 5 years of age.

Acute drought in many parts of Somalia has reduced the availability of clean water sources, and the food crisis has given way to malnutrition. More than 363 000 acutely malnourished children and 70 000 severely malnourished children are in need of urgent and life-saving support, it said. According to United Nations estimates, if the current situation food and security continues, these numbers are estimated to double in 2017.

Drought conditions have also increased the spread of epidemic-prone diseases such as acute watery diarrhea, cholera, and measles. In the first 7 weeks of 2017, over 6 000 cases and 65 deaths by acute watery diarrhea/ cholera have been reported, and a total of 2 578 cases of suspected measles were reported as of September 2016.

“Somalia is now at a critical point as a result of this drought and environmental hazards and lack of basic services,” said WHO Regional Director for the Eastern Mediterranean Dr. Mahmoud Fikri.

“We named this (2017) drought ‘Odi Kawayn,’ which is Somali for ‘something bigger than the elders.’ None of our elders has ever seen a drought as severe as this one,” said drought victim Halima, as reported by the International Organization for Migration.

Somalia, however, is not the only African country currently dealing with severe hunger crisis, Ethiopia and Kenya are too. 

These three countries in the Horn of Africa are currently suffering a severe drought that is threatening the lives of more than 11 million people. 

“Unfortunately, the international community is responding very reluctantly. People don't have any reserves left, as in recent years their harvests have failed and animals died because of the lack of water and fodder. Every donation helps us save lives,” said Till Wahnbaeck, Welthungerhilfe chief executive officer.

According to UN figures, more than 20 million people in Africa are dependent on humanitarian assistance for survival.

Zimbabwe – Floods Leave 246 Dead after an absolutely astonishing shift from a drought condition to an excessive saturation mirroring events in California

In a country where millions have been affected by a crippling drought in the last couple of years brought on by the super El-Niño event, an absolutely astonishing shift has taken place from a drought condition to an excessively wet situation” and there have been heavy (rain) falls that have surpassed all previous years. The situation was exacerbated by Tropical Cyclone Dineo in mid-February.
The government of Zimbabwe has appealed to international donors to help those affected by floods in the country during the 2016 to 2017 rainy season.
246 people have died, 128 people injured and approximately 1,985 made homeless by flooding in the country since October 2016.
The country’s Civil Protection agency reported a few days ago that another 859 people remained displaced after flooding in Tsholotsho District in Matabeleland North, where the Gwayi River and its tributaries burst their banks in the latest deluge.
Across the country as a whole, the minister, Mr. Kasukuwere said that over 2,500 homes have been damaged since October and some communities are still cut off by the floods. Roads, schools and health facilities have also suffered damage. The districts of Mberebgwa, Insiza and Lupane have suffered major road damage. Full damage assessments are yet to be carried out in some areas that remain inaccessible due to flooding.

And as is happening this month in California, Mr. Kasukuwere added that “85% of dams in the country are full and spilling, thus even low amounts of rainfall will cause flooding.” Around 70 small and medium sized dams have already been breached.
Just last November it was reported that Zimbabwe's dam levels had fallen to below 40 percent following the devastating drought that has left millions in need of food aid and local councils rationing water, Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa said on Friday.

An El Nino weather pattern, which ended in May, triggered drought conditions across the southern African region that hit the staple, maize, and other crops and dented economic growth.
Mnangagwa said the last time Zimbabwe experienced such a severe drought was in 1992, adding that the biggest dam in the south of the country was only 9 percent full.

Out West, the snow is so deep that scientists don't have any tools to measure it

California’s wild winter of incredible snowfall has scientists struggling to even measure it. Nathan Rousseau Smith

It’s a problem that cropped up Wednesday when researchers sought to confirm snow depth at a data site on Slide Mountain at Mount Rose Ski Tahoe near Reno.

“We’re not even close,” hydrologist Jeff Anderson said after jamming an aluminum tube more than 16 feet into the snowpack hoping to reach the ground below.

The snow-measuring snafu provided real life confirmation of what scientific instruments on the site already showed.

The Sierra Nevada is wrapping up a historic winter and that’s huge news for Nevada and California, states that have spent the past several years parched in drought.

“Who would have thought this two years ago when we were measuring the worst snowpack on record,” Anderson said.

The snowpack is 212 inches deep at the Slide Mountain SNOTEL site. Water content at the site was 74.6 inches, meaning there’s more than six feet of water in the 17-foot snowpack. It’s a record for March 1 at the site.

The previous record for March 1 snow water equivalent at the site was a little more than five feet in 1997. The overall site record was more than seven feet of snow water equivalent in May 1995.

Since Oct. 1, the first day of what’s referred to as the “water year,” there’s been nearly eight feet of precipitation at the Slide Mountain site. Much of it has been rain but there’s plenty of snow.

Mount Rose Ski Tahoe has measured a total of about 54 feet since the beginning of ski season.

The total precipitation so far makes it the second-wettest year at that SNOTEL site, with seven months remaining in the water year.

An average year at the site sees a little more than four-and-a-half feet of precipitation.

The big numbers aren’t limited to one SNOTEL site.

The overall snowpack in the Truckee River Basin is 207% of normal for the date. The Lake Tahoe Basin snowpack is at 220%. The Carson River Basin is at 210%. The Upper Humboldt Basin, which is an important basin for rural northern Nevada, is at 156%.

California’s March 1 snowpack totals are equally impressive.

At the Phillips snow course site south of Lake Tahoe the water content jumped from 28 inches at the beginning of February to more than 43 inches March 1. Snow depth was more than nine feet.

Statewide, the California snowpack is at an estimated 185% of normal for the date.

In fact, there’s more snow now than there usually is on April 1, when the snowpack tends to peak.

“We busted through April 1 values pretty much at all snow courses throughout the state,” said Frank Gehrke, chief of the California Cooperative Snow Surveys Program.

Although the impressive snowpack has delivered much-needed drought relief the region still faces long term environmental challenges due in large part to global climate change.

Nighttime lows in the Sierra Nevada are trending warmer and the mean freeze level is getting higher. Both trends threaten to make large snowpack winters less frequent in the future.

A greater percentage of precipitation coming in the form of rain instead of snow and irregular snow-melt cycles makes it more difficult for communities to capture water for public use.

“Instead of making its way into our faucets, the snow we have now could be washed away into the ocean,” said Juliet Christian-Smith, senior climate scientist and water expert at the Union of Concerned Scientists, wrote in a statement about the California snowpack. “Even in heavy snow years like this one, global warming is the wild card in our water security.”

Hawaii picks up 8 inches of snow overnight after blizzard

Do you want to build a snowman in paradise? Hawaii's mountainous peaks picked up 8 inches of snow overnight this week after a blizzard hit the summit of Mauna Kea on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Most of the snow fell late Tuesday into early Wednesday, and a blizzard warning for Mauna Kea and its sister peak Mauna Loa was canceled Thursday. A few additional snow showers were forecast, with no accumulation expected.

While the summits received snow, the rest of the Big Island dealt with heavy rain and thunderstorms that pelted the lower elevations. Both Oahu and Kauai were under flash flood warnings. Temperatures were mild, with highs in the 70s and 80s.

Snow on Hawaii's peaks is not uncommon in the colder months because they are nearly 14,000 feet high. Mauna Kea has a sub-Arctic climate, the weather service said.

“As long as we have deep enough clouds to support ice crystals, and when you have cold enough temperatures at the summit level, you can get snowfall,” said Matthew Foster, a staff meteorologist with the weather service in Honolulu.

Snow fell on both mountains on at least two occasions in December. Mauna Loa and its sister peak of Mauna Kea are both volcanoes. Mauna Kea is the highest point in the state.

The only other area of Hawaii that gets snow with any regularity is the Haleakalā volcano on Maui, which at about 10,000 feet gets snow once every five years or so.

The coldest temperature ever recorded in Hawaii was 12 degrees on Mauna Kea on May 17, 1979, the weather service said.

Antarctic temperatures hit unprecedented high of 17.5C as continent's warming accelerates

Researchers record hottest ever reading on Earth's coldest continent where temperatures usually range between -10C and -60C

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/antarctica-temperature-hi...

Temperatures in Antarctica have reached a record high, hitting an unprecedented 17.5C, the United Nations weather agency has announced.

An Argentine research base near the northern tip of the Antarctic recorded the temperature in March 2015, new analysis has revealed.

The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) announced the finding after analysing data from a number of recording stations.

The temperature, more common in the Mediterranean than near the South Pole, is a significant departure from Antarctic averages, which range from -10C on the continent’s coast to -60C in the interior.

The region is made up of ice 4.8 kilometres thick, which contains 90 per cent of the world’s fresh water. If it were all to melt, experts say sea levels would rise by 60 metres.
