"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.

Weather Office's "Red" Warning Over Severe Cold Wave In Delhi

Delhi temperature today: The IMD this morning said the temperature has risen by 2-3 degree Celsius at many places in Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Chandigarh and Delhi

Delhi's low tempartures

Delhi Temperature: A cold wave has gripped Delhi and other northern states. 

New Delhi: 

A severe cold wave in the national capital has prompted a "red" warning from the weather office after the temperature this morning was recorded at 2.8 degree Celsius at the Lodhi Road observatory. The Safdarjung observatory recorded a low of 2.4 degree Celsius on Saturday - lowest in decades. A "red" warning from the India Meteorological Department (IMD) means "extreme weather conditions".

Flight and train services have been affected as Delhi temperature plummeted. "My train is four hours late. It was supposed to arrive at 4:25 pm but it will come at 8:30 pm. Our checkout time from the hotel was 12 pm. We have to wait for so long," Adrija Mandal, 19, a passenger going to West Bengal, told NDTV.

"There was heavy fog on the road that connects Delhi and Noida. We had to drive carefully," said Shivani Shukla, who works with a private firm.

The IMD this morning said the temperature has risen by 2-3 degree Celsius at many places in Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Chandigarh and Delhi. It has, however, dipped by 1-2 degree Celsius at a few places in western Rajasthan and western Madhya Pradesh.

In the north-east, parts of Nagaland saw unprecedented snowfall this week. The state has been experiencing unusual cold conditions over the past three days.

The air quality in Delhi also fell to the "severe" category with the air quality index dangerously high at 465. Officials said low temperature along with high humidity and low wind speed led pollutants to accumulate.

The average maximum temperature this month is likely to be 19.15 degree Celsius. If it happens, then it will be the coldest December since 1997 when it was 17.3 degree Celsius, and the second-coldest December since 1901.

Only on four occasions between 1901 and 2018, the average maximum temperature for December has been either equal to or less than 20 degree Celsius in 1919, 1929, 1961 and 1997.

A respite from the cold and air pollution may come between December 31 and January 2 when light rain is expected. Hailstorm is also expected on January 1 and 2.

Delhi faces second-coldest December for over a CENTURY: India gripped by ‘bone-chilling’ weather 


A wave of unusually cold weather is sweeping across large swathes of India, from remote Kashmir to Delhi, forcing people to seek shelter and light bonfires on the streets. Delhi has been hit with what local media described as ‘bone-chilling days’ this week. In the early hours of Friday, the temperature dropped to almost four degrees Celsius (39.2 degrees Fahrenheit). This December is now on course to become the second coldest in terms of daytime temperatures the capital has seen since 1901, with December 1997 holding the top spot. RT
 
Cold waves killed more Indians than heatwaves since 1980.

While North India is under the grip of severe 'cold days' and 'cold waves' in 2019, a look at the data provided by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) shows a worrying trend. In 23 of the last 38 years (1980-2018), the human death toll in India due to cold waves was higher than that due to heatwaves. In 1992, 41 times more lives were lost due to cold waves. Between 2010 and 2018. the trend was somewhat different. In this period, around 4,506 people died due to cold waves while 5,572 died due to heatwaves. The notable exception was 2011. That year, human deaths due to cold waves were nearly 60 times more than those due to heatwaves. However, in 2018, the trend reversed again. About 136 people died due to cold waves in comparison to 16 deaths due to heatwaves. The other shocking statistic that emerged between 2010 and 2018 was a whopping 506 per cent increase in the number of cold waves in India, despite increasing temperatures worldwide due to global warming. DTE

The UK is set for its warmest New Year’s Eve in 178 years as a vast tropical plume is expected to bring temperatures to balmy heights. 

The Met Office has forecast that temperatures could reach highs of around 16 deg C, (61 deg F) up to and including New Year’s Eve on Tuesday, a steady increase from the 7 to 9C average at this time of year in England and Wales. In fact, it will be the UK’s warmest December 31 since the temperatures were recorded in 1841 where the record was set at 15.6 deg C, (60 deg F) in Great Yarmouth way back in 1910. Europe Weekly News

More misery for the Aussies

Penrith in western Sydney will rise to 41 deg C, (106 deg F) today as fresh heatwave kicks in, while regional centres in the Hunter, central west, central and southern tablelands will feel the heat with temperatures well above 35C, (95 deg F). Temperatures are expected to peak on Tuesday, with New Year's Eve forecasts of more than 40C across western Sydney and in regional NSW. "Tomorrow we are expecting peak temperatures to be at South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania," BOM Meteorologist Sarah Scully told Today. "We are expecting temperatures in Tasmania to be about 40C – even hotter for Melbourne at 43C," (110 deg F). 9News

Severe flooding forces Fort Lauderdale Airport to CLOSE as overnight storms batter Florida bringing travel misery for Christmas travelers heading home

  • Overnight storms caused flooded roads and a closed airport in Florida on Monday as travelers made their way home for the holiday season 
  • Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport closed operations before 4am and currently has 382 flight delays
  • Large queues of travelers could be seen waiting due to 'severe rain and flash flooding' in the surrounding area
  • Heavy rainfall may threaten millions this holiday season as flood warnings have been issued along both coasts
  • Snow is likely for the highest elevations of northern Arizona, Utah and Colorado from Tuesday to Thursday 

Overnight storms caused flooded roads and closed an airport in Florida on Monday as travelers battled to make their way home for the holiday season.  

Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport shut down its operations before 4am as heavy flooding grounded flights and made roads around the building impassable.  

Arlene Statchell a spokesman with Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport told WSVN: 'The airport was closed for a couple of hours due to the overnight rain that caused flooding, not only on the airport roadways, but on sections of the air fields.

'We are advising travelers to check with their airlines to make sure they have the latest flight information before heading out and, obviously, if you’re picking up or dropping off people, to just prepare and give yourself enough time to get here.'

On Monday afternoon, the airport had recorded 383 flight delays and eight cancellations. Long lines of travelers could be seen waiting as people struggled to get to the airport due to the inclement weather. 'I just got an email saying that it’s delayed until 6.45,' said one traveler.

'We left early enough in the day that I didn’t expect it at all,' another traveler told 7News

Jonathan Libertoff, who was travelling to New York from the airport, told the outlet: 'The shuttle buses for the rental cars were also stuck in the floods so you can’t even get to the terminals.

'You gotta walk about half a mile to get to the terminals, but at least it’s not cold out like in New York.'

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for the Hollywood area at around 2am. It had also issued flash flood warnings for parts of southeast Georgia and southeast South Carolina.  

In its latest watch alert, the National Weather Service wrote that a 'strong storm system' is expected to produce another three to six inches of rain on Christmas Eve. 

The lower South Carolina coast carries the highest risk for flash flooding, which can occur quickly in low-lying and poor drainage areas. The risk is further elevated due to high tides on Monday.

Heatwave melts roads in rural SA as records tumble across the country

Thursday, 19 December 2019 8:22 pm

As Australia is scorched by a record-breaking heatwave, rural parts of the country have experienced temperatures so severe that roads are melting.

Some South Australian towns tipped 50C on Thursday, with the mercury hitting 49.9C at Nullarbor - the state's hottest-ever December day.

Ceduna, on the state's Eyre Peninsula, recorded its hottest day in more than 80 years, at 48.8.

At Port Augusta, it was so hot the bitumen on some roads started to melt before residents' eyes, causing a driving hazard.

The Spencer Gulf city hit 48.5, smashing its previous December record.

Adelaide soared to 45.38 - its hottest December day since records began in 1997.

But that record could fall as soon as Friday, when the temperature is expected to reach 46.

The heat has forced the cancellation of events across the state, including Friday's Twilight Race at Morphettville and the Renmark Christmas Pageant.

Adelaide Metro was also forced to cancel afternoon tram services because of the conditions on Thursday.

'Unprecedented' heat

Australia is set to finish the week before Christmas facing temperatures well into the 40s across most of the nation on Friday.

Wednesday's average of 41.9 across the country was one degree hotter than the previous record set on Tuesday.

This average maximum temperature record could be broken again as the heatwave will only continue to intensify, leaving southern and central Australia with temperatures up to 16C above average by Friday.

Three capital cities are all forecast to hit 40C on Thursday, following the hottest day the nation has ever seen on record.

Parts of Tasmania are also set to reach temperatures about 16C above the state average on Friday as the extreme heat gripping mainland Australia spreads south.

Melbourne is forecast to hit 44 on Friday

The 39.3 that sweltered through Canberra on Thursday, to set the capital's hottest December day, might come a close second if the capital reaches the 41 forecast on Friday.

Adelaide could also be set for its hottest December day on Friday, with an upgraded forecast of 46.

Snow Is so Deep in Iceland Right Now That Farmers Have to Dig Out Horses Buried Under it (Video)

On Friday, December 13, Magnús Ásgeir Elíasson, a farmer from Hvammstangi, had a sudden feeling that he should check on his horses.

When he arrived to his pasture, most of his horses were stuck in the snow and one had completely disappeared, fully buried.

Sometimes, Friday the 13 isn’t so unlucky after all. We didn’t get hit by this large asteroid and this famer was able to dig out his horses stuck and even buried under deep snow after a powerful blizzard swept Iceland with 149 mph winds and dropped more than 10 feet of snow.

Yes, in this case, Magnús Ásgeir Elíasson had a strong and lucky intuition that saved one of his horses.

Apparently, just after breakfast, a little voice in his head said: ‘Go check your horses.‘ He then looked outside throught the window and saw his heard literally freezing in the snow.

He ran to his field and found most of his animals stuck in the snow. It was just in time, as the poor animals had battled the snow cyclone during the entire night, without food, water and a barn to protect themselves.

Without losing a second, he started digging freeing his horses one by one.

This is the terrifying moment he realized that one of the animals was missing. Freyja was indeed completely immersed in deep snow!

Here a video showing some horses that were able to be freed for the snow:

His neighbors quickly arrived and offered help to dig out the last horse buried in the snow. They put the mare in the shovel of the tractor and took her inside the barn with all her friends.

The unprecedented snow storm also buried sheep under feet of snow.

More than 10,000 evacuated from floods in Malaysia

A view of the flooding at a village in Skudai, Johor. Torrential rain is forecast today for the state, as well as Terengganu and Pahang. The number of people evacuated in Johor was 9,348 as of yesterday. Personnel from the Johor Fire and Rescue Depar Personnel from the Johor Fire and Rescue Department yesterday helping to move people with disabilities, as well as children, from the Skudai and Tebrau areas to relief centres. Of the nearly 100 centres set up in Malaysia, 85 of them are in Johor.

Johor bears brunt of downpour, with Kluang, Segamat, Kota Tinggi areas most severely hit

Malaysia's annual monsoon season continues unabated and Johor is facing the brunt of it, with some areas struggling with flood waters up to 2.5m deep.

As of yesterday afternoon, the number of people evacuated in Johor state had more than doubled to 9,348, from 3,934 on Sunday.

Over two-thirds of the state's victims are from Kluang, Segamat and Kota Tinggi, the three most severely hit areas.

Engineer Lor Wei Keong, 43, was stranded atop his four-wheel drive along Jalan Kota Tinggi-Mersing for two hours before he was rescued by an amphibious boat.

"The water level was only halfway up my vehicle tyres, and I thought I could go," he told the New Straits Times daily. "Unfortunately, the vehicle was trapped in the rising flood water, which was gaining speed as well."

He escaped to his vehicle's rooftop, where he was spotted by road users who called for help.

Nationwide, more than 10,000 flood victims had been evacuated as of noon yesterday, said the National Disaster Management Agency. They were taken to nearly 100 relief centres, of which 85 are in Johor.

The Malaysian Meteorological Department has issued warnings to ships as strong winds and waves from the South China Sea pummelled the coasts of Johor, Pahang, Kelantan and Terengganu.

The department forecasts torrential rain in Johor, Terengganu and Pahang until today, while heavy downpour is expected to drench Sabah until tomorrow

As of yesterday afternoon, flood victims in Johor, Pahang and Sarawak have yet to return home, while the last of the evacuees in Melaka went home yesterday morning. In Kuala Lumpur, roads were flooded and drains overflowed as it rained non-stop on Sunday.

Knee-high flood waters in the basement carpark of Ikea Cheras shopping mall left some customers stranded for several hours. Mobile phone reception was erratic in Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang.

In Sabah, unrelenting rain cut off road access to a village in Papar, forcing a woman to give birth at home and then to walk 5km to seek treatment at a health clinic. Local media reported that landslides prevented family members from heading out to get help for the unnamed woman.

The monsoon has so far claimed two lives: a seven-year-old boy who fell into a canal and a 49-year-old Thai labourer who fell into a flooded padi field.

Both happened in Kelantan earlier this month, when the number of people evacuated across Malaysia swelled to more than 15,000

The Great Lakes Have Been Filled to the Brim for Months and It Could Spell Trouble This Winter   By Linda Lam 23 hours ago weather.com

https://weather.com/safety/winter/news/2019-12-11-near-record-high-...

At a Glance

  • Water levels on the Great Lakes remain at near-record high values as of early December.
  • Coastal erosion and lakeshore flooding concerns are increased this winter due to the higher water levels.
  • Excessive precipitation caused the Great Lakes to experience record-high water levels this year.

Near-record high water levels on the Great Lakes could increase the threat of coastal erosion and lakeshore flooding this winter.

The average water level for the lakes during November was within half a foot of record levels on Lake Superior as well as Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. Lake Erie and Lake Ontario were just over half a foot below their record level for this time of year.

The water levels for all the lakes are expected to remain above average through at least February even though lake levels generally decreased in November and typically continue to do so into winter.

Lakes Superior, Michigan and Huron may also remain close to record levels over the next couple of months, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. How high the actual water level reaches depends on weather variations.

There is an increased potential of severe coastal impacts including shoreline erosion, lakeshore flooding and coastal damages over the next few weeks and possibly throughout the winter because of the observed higher water levels, the International Lake Superior Board of Control noted. The risk will be greater during periods of strong winds and high waves.

Winter is usually an active time of year. Strong low pressure systems move through the Great Lakes region during this time. These powerful storms combined with higher water levels increase the chances for issues along the lakeshores like coastal erosion and flooding.

(MORE: Where Winter Has Started Strong)

There doesn't have to be a strong storm moving through the area for there to be problems. Portions of Lake Ontario are under a lakeshore flood warning midweek due to the combination of high water levels and high waves as a cold front pushes through.
Why Are Water Levels So High?

The Great Lakes set several monthly records for highest levels during the May through August period and lakes Erie and Ontario set all-time records this summer.

The reason for the record-high levels this year in the Great Lakes? Excessive precipitation in the region.

Above-average precipitation has plagued the Midwest for most of this year. The dominant pattern featured a parade of storms that dumped heavy snow and rain in the central U.S. since late last winter.

Chicago, Green Bay and Muskegon, Michigan, have all experienced their wettest year-to-date on record as of Dec. 8, according to the Southeast Regional Climate Center. Most locations in the Midwest have seen a top-10 wettest year-to-date.

All this precipitation eventually flows into rivers and lakes, including the Great Lakes. As a result, the wetter-than-average trend in the central U.S. this year has kept Great Lakes water levels high.

Sahara Desert covered in 15 inches of SNOW as freak weather blankets sand dunes

HEAVY snow has covered the Sahara Desert in a freak winter weather storm.


Amazing footage shows SNOW in the Sahara desert

More than 15 inches (40cm) has blanketed sand dunes across the small town of Ain Sefra, Algeria.

It is the second time snow has hit in nearly 40 years, with a dusting also recorded in December 2016.

But this snowfall which hit on Sunday, is much deeper than the fleeting shower little more than a year ago.

Locals, who endure temperatures of 37C in summer, were stunned as dense snow settled on the town, known as ‘the gateway to the desert’.

Photographer Karim Bouchetata, who captured the remarkable images, said: "We were really surprised when we woke up to see snow again. It stayed all day on Sunday and began melting at around 5pm."

Last year’s flurry brought chaos across the town, with passengers stranded on buses after the roads became slippery and icy. Children made snowmen and even sledged on the sand dunes.
