"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.

IT'S BRUTAL! Record breaking heatwaves across Britain Europe and US as roads melt in the UK and too hot to fly in parts of US


Photo funtobebad.blogspot.com


  • Roads melting in the UK 
  • Hottest June day since 1976
  • Commuters in Croydon refused to use trams after noticing the track appeared to be disintegrating
  • Streets of Las Vegas and Phoenix have been reduced to ghost towns as temperatures hit 118F 
  • Elsewhere, extreme heat baked southern Spain as the mercury eclipsed 44 C (112 F) in Cordoba


UK heatwave
Gritters were deployed to shore up failing roads as temperatures on the surface reached 104F (40C), causing them to melt.
Cambridgeshire County Council took the decision to deploy the vehicles after motorists complained that their tyres had started 'ripping the tarmac off the roads.'
Drivers were warned by police to take care on the B1165 near Newton in Cambridgeshire, where the tarmac has melted, and Agnes Owen, who works at a service station nearby, said that it 'sounded like cars were driving on water.'
Evan Laughlin, from Cambridgeshire County Council, said gritters had been used to distribute granite dust to stabilise the road surface and stop bitumen becoming stuck on wheels.
"Normally the roads stand the summer temperatures we get, but just this week it's very hot," she said. Motorists in Tarleton, Lancashire also discovered tar on their wheels as the roads melted., while some commuters in Croydon refused to use trams after noticing the track appeared to be disintegrating. Transport for London said they had thrown sand down to help protect the rails.
Rory O'Neill, TfL's Director for London Trams, said: "The flexible sealant near the track has been softened by the current hot weather and although it is having no impact on the safe running of the tram network, we appreciate it may look concerning to customers.
"Our engineers are on site and, as is standard procedure, they are applying sand to mitigate the effect of the heat."
Elsewhere pupils were sent home from a school in East Yorkshire after refusing to wear blazers as temperatures soared past 86F (30C). Kingswood Academy in Hull said the children were defiant over their uniforms, but parents complained that teachers had put their health at risk.
Allergy charities also warned that the hot weather could trigger fatal attacks and said sufferers should stay away from rural areas and avoid leaving windows open at night and early in the morning when pollen counts were at their highest.

US heatwave
As for how hot is too hot for planes to fly at all, experts tell us it shouldn't be an issue unless temperatures get over 120 degrees and that is exactly the type of temperatures California and Arizona have been suffering as many flights have been suffering
The Daily Mail reports, the streets of Las Vegas and Phoenix have been reduced to ghost towns as temperatures hit 118F and climbing during a punishing heat wave that has grounded planes and left door handles so hot they can leave people with burns.
Temperatures are predicted to reach 120F on the first day of summer in Phoenix, and the heat wave is threatening to bring the 'deadly' temperatures to several parts of Arizona, Nevada and California as well.
Las Vegas is likely to hit 117F on Wednesday, as excessive heat warnings cover almost all of California.
The National Weather Service has been forecasting Tuesday highs of 120F or above in Phoenix for the past several days, a number not seen in the desert city for more than 20 years.

 Europe heatwave
Accu weather reports the historic heat that developed across much of Spain over the past week will continue this week with no relief until this weekend.
Madrid set an all-time June high temperature on Saturday when the temperature reached 40.3 C (104.5 F) at Madrid-Barajas Airport.
High temperatures will range from 35-39 C (95-102 F) each day through the weekend in Madrid. 

Elsewhere, extreme heat baked southern Spain as the mercury eclipsed 44 C (112 F) in Cordoba last week.
High temperatures between 39 and 42 C (102 and 108 F) are expected this week.
All of France will endure the highest temperatures of the year so far as the heat builds each of the next several days.
The high temperature reached 35 C (95 F) in Paris on Tuesday, and similar temperatures expected on Wednesday and Thursday.
The last time the temperature surpassed 35 C (95 F) in Paris in June was 2011 when the temperature reached 36 C (97 F).
Similar temperatures are impacting Holland and Belgium.

Portugal forest fires claim at least 57 lives with 18 people 'incinerated' as they are trapped in their cars

  • The the devastating forest blaze broke out on Saturday in central Portugal 
  • 59 people are injured, 'many' people are still missing and homes are ruined
  • Portugal has had temperatures of up to 40C with wind and lightening storms which have fuelled the flames
  • Some 600 firefighters have been fighting the blaze, helped by Spanish rescuers
  • It is possibly the deadliest-ever single forest to rage through the country

At least 57 people are now known to have died and 59 people are injured in the devastating forest fire in Portugal.

At least 18 people died while trapped in their cars as flames swept over a road, in what the prime minister has called 'the biggest tragedy of human life that we have known in years.' 

It is possibly the deadliest ever single forest blaze to hit Portugal.

Flames rise during a forest fire in Pedrogao Grande, Leiria District, Center of Portugal. At least 57 people have been killed, including many people who were trapped in their cars as flames swept over the road

Of the 59 people injured, four are in a serious condition, and four firefighters and a child are all injured. 

Teams of psychologists have been deployed to care for survivors, who are 'in shock' and have lost relatives.

The blaze has been described as 'almost impossible to control' and emergency services have spoken of a 'horrible scenario'. 

Firefighters work to put out a forest fire near Bouca, in central Portugal. The forest fires have already claimed 39 lives, 59 people are injured and at least two people are missing

A lightning strike is believed to have sparked the blaze in the Pedrogao Grande area after investigators found a tree that was hit during a 'dry thunderstorm,' the head of the national judicial police told Portuguese media.  

The death toll is expected to rise further during the day as 'many' people were said to be still missing. 

A man stands on the roadside watching a wildfire at Anciao, Leiria, central Portugal. The wildfire has killed at least 43 people and injured 16 others, many of them burning to death in their cars, the government said today

Several roads of Pedrógão Grande have been cut off as firemen still battle the blaze on four different fronts, fanned by the heat and wind. 

The Pedrógão Grande area is 50 km (30 miles) south-east of Coimbra, a UNESCO world heritage site and university town popular with tourists and international students.  

It is not yet known if any British people have been impacted by the deadly blaze. 

The updated death toll was released today by Jorge Gomes, the secretary of state for internal affairs, having climbed from the 19 initially announced dead late yesterday.

'We are facing the greatest tragedy of human victims of recent times by a disaster of this type,' said the Portuguese prime minister, António Costa.

Dry thunderstorms - which it is now believed are responsible for fueling the fire - are frequent when falling water evaporates before reaching the ground because of high temperatures. 

Portugal, like most southern European countries, is prone to forest fires in the dry summer months.

'This is a region that has had fires because of its forests, but we cannot remember a tragedy of these proportions,' said Valdemar Alves, mayor of Pedrogao Grande. 'I am completely stunned by the number of deaths.'

Authorities had previously said that 40 C (104 F) heat in recent days might have played a part in the inferno about 150 kilometers (95 miles) northeast of Lisbon.  

A huge wall of thick smoke and bright red flames towered over the top of trees near houses in the wooded region. Local resident Isabel Brandao told The Associated Press that she had feared for her life.

'Yesterday we saw the fire but thought it was very far. I never thought it would come to this side,' she said. 

'At 3:30 a.m., my mother-in-law woke me up quickly and we never went to sleep again. We were afraid the fire would reach us.'  

The European Union has activated its civil protection efforts to help fight the fires. EU Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management Christos Stylianides said the 'EU is fully ready to help'

Prime Minister Antonio Costa said that firefighting crews were having difficulties in approaching the area because the fire was 'very intense.' He added that Portuguese authorities were working on identifying the victims and that Spanish rescuers would assist in efforts to control the blazes.

Portugal's civil protection agency, which coordinates the firefighting efforts, issued a warning of the increased risk for forest fires in Friday. Citing the high temperatures, it said that all outdoor fires were prohibited. 

At least 16 people died in their cars on a road between the towns of Figueiro dos Vinhos and Castanheira de Pera - an inland area with many hotels and holiday resorts. 

18 people are currently confirmed as having died in their cars.

Interior Ministry official Jorge Gomes said that three others died from smoke inhalation in Figueiro dos Vinhos.

The blaze broke out on Saturday afternoon in the municipality of Pedrógão Grande, central Portugal. 

'Many' people are said to be missing and homes have been destroyed.

Portugal has been experiencing soaring temperatures of up to 40 degrees and this, coupled with the wind, has been fueling the flames.

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy tweeted that he is 'overwhelmed by the tragedy at Pedrogao Grande. The Portuguese people can count on our solidarity, support and care'. 

Pope Francis has led thousands of people in a moment of silent prayer for the victims of the Portugal fire.

Francis referred to the 'devastating fire' at the end of his Sunday prayer, delivered from his studio window overlooking St. Peter's Square.

The crowd fell silent and Francis bowed his head to recall the 'many victims' of the blaze.

Francis visited the Portuguese shrine of Fatima last month.

Biblical sandstorm changes day into night across Punjab, Pakistan killing 7 as 195 km/h winds devastated rural areas

On June 10, 2017, a biblical dust storm disrupted life in the entire Punjab province with powerful winds reaching 195 km/h (121 mph).

The apocalyptic sand storm killed 7 people, injured about 70 and destroyed homes, knocked down billboards, trees and power lines, cutting power supply in most of the rural areas for more than a day.

Dawn reports that a minor girl died crushed down by the walls of her house. Two students were killed after the minaret of a mosque collapsed on them. Another died electrocuted, while another one crushed by the huge hoarding of a multinational company. In total, at least 7 died, six in Bahawalnagar district alone.

Another 70 people have been injured by the massive weather anomaly in Pakistan / India.

Honduras – Deadly Floods in Choluteca After 190 mm Rain in 24 Hours

Two people have died and over 250 forced from their homes after flooding in Choluteca Department, southern Honduras.

A yellow level alert for heavy rain was issued on 10 June for the southern and western departments of Choluteca, Valle, Lempira, La Paz, Intibucá, Santa Bárbara, Copán and Ocotepeque.

Rainfall warnings in Honduras. 

National Permanent Commission of Emergencies (COPECO) says ravines flooded and rivers overflowed in the city of Choluteca on Saturday 10 June.

The city recorded 83.2 mm of rain in 24 hours to 10 June, with 68.0 mm falling in just 6 hours. During a 24 hour period between 10 and 11 June, Choluteca recorded 190.6 mm of rain.

Over 100 houses have been damaged and 10 totally destroyed. As many as 253 people have been displaced and 554 have been affected by heavy rain and floods in the 9 neighbourhoods of the city.

COPECO also reported two deaths as a result of the severe weather in the department. One death occurred in Choluteca when a man attempted to cross a flooded ravine. A fatality in Talanga was caused by a tree falling on a house.

COPECO has delivered humanitarian aid to around 500 people who were affected by the floods.

Many of those evacuated were housed in local buildings such as churches in the neighbourhoods of San Francisco del Palomar, La Providencia and Sampile.

The city has a population of around 100,000 and sits on the river Choluteca River in the south of the country between El Salvador and Nicaragua.

Parts of El Salvador also recorded heavy rain recently, with 55 mm falling in 24 hours to 11 June in Acajutla.

Storms Leave 165,000 Without Power in Minnesota and Wisconsin

 

More than 100,000 homes were without power Sunday morning after storms lashed central Minnesota and western Wisconsin with heavy rains, hail and strong winds. 

Xcel Energy reports that the fast-moving storm, which felled trees and power lines in communities throughout central Minnesota, initially affected 132,000 households, most of which were in the Twin Cites metro and St. Cloud areas. 

The utility company says more than 500 people were dispatched Sunday to repair outages, adding that by mid-day 45,000 households had their power restored. Still, around 88,000 households remain without power. 

By 9:30 p.m. Sunday, Xcel reported nearly 131,000 customers had their power restored. Around 34,000 households were still without power as of Sunday night. 

Xcel said some customers could be without power for multiple days. 

The severe weather started overnight in the Dakotas before pushing east into central Minnesota, dumping heavy rain and up to tennis-ball-sized hail. Wind gusts whipped up to 70 mph. 

The front edge of the storm system slammed directly against the Twin Cities metro, felling trees and power lines. Cars and homes were hit with debris, and authorities reported fires believed to be caused by lightning strikes. 

Streets in many communities were flooded with rainwater. In several places, mounds of hail could be seen floating on the floodwaters like small icebergs. In Coon Rapids, so much hail fell that streets had to be plowed. 


Meteorologist Mike Augustyniak says the storm could likely have caused more than $100 million worth of damage in the Twin Cities. 

Outside the metro, WCCO viewers sent in images of mangled grain bins and farming equipment. One dairy farm in Pennock, in west-central Minnesota, says the storm destroyed its barns, leaving its cows and heifers homeless. 

While the storm moved through Minnesota in just a few hours, it pushed into western Wisconsin, prompting tornado warnings. Just last month, a tornado killed a man at a trailer park in Chetek. 

As clean-up and damage assessment gets underway, efforts could be hindered by storms Sunday evening. 

The National Weather Service says that afternoon and evening storms could develop, again hitting the metro area and southeastern Minnesota with strong winds and hail.

Weather in Cape Town is going out of control: 8 dead during worst winter storm in 30 years

Weather in Cape Town is going out of control.

The worst winter storm in 30 years is currently hitting South Africa’s province of Western Cape and the Cape Town metropolitan area with powerful winds, huge waves and coastal flooding, frequent lightning, heavy rain and snow at higher elevations. It has already killed 8 people and we are not close to an end.

The worst storm to hit the region in 30 years brought Cape Town and neighboring cities to a standstill on Wednesday morning.

At the same time, a massive wildfire is spreading through Southern Cape, forcing evacuations and road closures. 3 people died in flames in their homes in Rheenendal, today.

The storm came amid the worst drought the region has seen in more than 100 years, but experts predict it will take at least 3 wet winters to replenish drinking water supplies.

Here is the relationship between the Jet Stream and the STORM cells

2 June 2017 -

Bad weather: the profile of today's afternoon thunderstorms is given by Jet Stream

http://www.meteoweb.eu/2017/06/ecco-la-relazione-tra-le-jet-stream-...

https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=it&tl=en&js=y&...

We have repeatedly noticed that currents at 7000 meters (Jet Stream) can determine the weather conditions on the ground. We have an example today.

Just look at the image of the afternoon at 15.50 pm in which Italy is seen a lot of thunderstorms. Storm cells, especially those formed on Sardinia but not only, are all very elongated, synonymous with their particular intensity.

To observe the elongation direction well, it coincides exactly with those of the arrows on the radar image, the arrows that indicate the Jet Stream.

Here's how you can notice how bad weather lies exactly in the direction expressed by currents at altitude.

Moreover, the same Jet Streams are of high intensity, the stiffer stretches of the cells are stronger and therefore the level of their intensity is even more marked.

Water, Water Everywhere - US Drought Conditions Hit Record Low

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-05-11/water-water-everywhere-us-...

After reaching record drought conditions just a few short years ago (with over 60% of the nation more than abnormally dry), the USDA's Drought Monitor site shows that the second-wettest April on record has shrunk the area of the U.S. suffering from drought to a new low of less than 5%.

As Bloomberg reports, the milestone was mentioned in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s monthly report Wednesday on American farm production and may bode well for crop yields.

According to the gauge, there’s an “extreme drought” in south-central Florida and it’s “abnormally dry” in parts of the Southwest.

The map also shows the grain and soybean belt from Iowa to Ohio looks to have plenty of soil moisture -- maybe even too much in flooded areas -- as the growing season moves into full swing.

Summer Snow in Lapland Prompts Ski Resort to Reopen (Jun 5)

The skiing season ended in Northern Lapland in mid-May, but the weather there is still so cold and snowfall so frequent that the Saariselkä resort will reopen its slopes, which are currently up to a metre deep in snow.

May 2017 will go down as one of the coldest spring months on record in Finland, and in Lapland the beginning of summer has been the second-snowiest in the Meteorological Institute's recorded history.

The situation has lead the Saariselkä ski resort in Inari to reopen its skiing slopes, weeks after the official season ended.

"We're all set in terms of snow, more will even fall this week," says ski centre manager Jarmo Katajamaa. "We are glad to offer our customers this unique post-season possibility."

Early June has been unusually snowy even for Lapland, and at Saariselkä the drifts are 50-100 cm deep.

Local hotels have taken the reopening into consideration by offering bargain packages in June.

The winter skiing season officially ended on May 14th at Saariselkä this year.
