ZetaTalk: Weather Extremes
written July 29, 2005


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.

Is this as bad as it will get, prior to the pole shift when hurricane force winds will sweep the Earth and every region of the globe will emerge with a new climate and geography? Has the lineal increase we predicted in 1995 reached its climax? We are not here with good tidings, nor were we here with good tidings in 1995. ZetaTalk, blunt and honest, is not for the faint at heart, but for those willing to take a serious warning and act on it.

  • The coastlines will get increasingly inhospitable, as storms formed over the oceans can develop into a howling rage that dissipates over land. As we have stated, hurricane force storms will not develop into super storms, more violent than man has experienced, but will form in places not previously experienced, and will be more consistently strong and destructive. In some places around the globe, this will make coastlines uninhabitable, a place where crops are grown or fish harvested but where humans do not reside or sleep soundly.
  • Where deserts have formed based on geology, mountain ranges blocking rain clouds or the atmosphere depleated of rain during a long trip over land masses, this will change as the direction of wind flow changes. Lands used to regular rains, now suffering droughts, may find these droughts turning their land into deserts. Rain forests are likewise formed by geology and wind currents, and these may fear being washed away as rain comes not only more often but with a greater load of water picked up by fast moving air currents traveling over large bodies of water. Drought or deluge, there will be few places on Earth not affected by one of these extremes, and all of this affects the success of crops.
  • Temperature extremes, and in particular temperature swings, will increase, so that the seasons almost blend into one another. If Summer is expected to be a time of extreme heat, and Winter extreme cold, man may find his Summer cool with odd brief snowstorms and Winter confusing the crops wanting to go into their annual hibernation. The key will be the unpredictability, as a looping jet stream and increasing extremes of high and low pressure over land will force the atmosphere into unexpected directions.

Where does this place man, as he learns of the likelihood of a pole shift caused by the passage of a rogue planet - Planet X? Most will stubbornly stay in place, refusing to contemplate the unpleasant and preferring to accept any explanation the establishment proffers. Suffering will increase, but will result in riots and angry outbursts or illness from malnutrition and depressed immune systems or the psychological depression that comes from a sense of hopelessness. Those who have decided to live, and help others to do so, will find the argument, whether to stay or go, tipping in the direction of a move. Coastal areas may be pleasant, and river basins rich with delta soil, and the commerce that has grown up near ports and great rivers providing jobs, but the tribulations of a self sufficient family home in the hinterland will seem increasingly worth it. This is the push the weather extremes will bring. Add to this increasing volcanic and quake activity, making the fault lines unattractive and life in crowded cities likely to be suffering from collapse as their infrastructure is shattered and pulled apart. All of these matters will speak to those who want to survive, in a voice louder than any reassurance from the establishment. Make your plans. Cut your losses. And get out of harms way to a place where you can at least have a chance of feeding your family

UPDATE March 21, 2012:

http://zetatalk.com/ning/03mr2012.htm

Does this article prove an outside presence pressuring the cloud layer lower? Do the Zeta have any comment on the science behind this? [and from another] http://www.livescience.com/18604-cloud-heights-declining.html Over the last 10 years, the height of clouds has been shrinking, according to new research. For a decade, however, the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer on NASA's Terra spacecraft has been watching Earth's clouds. The device's first 10 years of cloud-top height measurements from March 2000 to February 2010. They found that global average cloud height decreased by around 1 percent over the decade, a distance of 100 to 130 feet (30 to 40 meters). Most of the reduction stemmed from fewer clouds forming at very high altitudes.

The period in question, from 2000 through 2010, is also the time when Planet X has been affecting the Earth, roiling the core, creating a daily Earth wobble, and twisting the magnetosphere. Cloud formation results when air masses of different temperatures clash, one more humid than the other. The longer an air mass can linger close to the ground, the more homogeneous the temperature will become in the layers above ground, thus preventing cloud formation. It is likewise true that stronger winds at higher altitudes will disburse differences, so that cloud formation at high altitudes are now being disbursed more readily. This is essentially a result of the Earth wobble, combined with particle bursts from rock under stress and greasy components from the tail of Planet X. A 1% change is insignificant, in the scheme of things. What IS significant is the fact that scientists have no explanation to cover the change.

To add to @Norman's Post below it was also super rare because of te way the vortex's were actually spinning!!!!

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/blogs/geekquinox/record-breaking-tornado-h...

"Already breaking records as the widest tornado ever seen, the twister that passed near El Reno, Oklahoma last Friday is making an even bigger name for itself, thanks to a rare companion that was spinning in the 'wrong' direction.

Tornadoes in the United States usually spin around in a counter-clockwise direction, or 'cyclonically'. The large-scale weather system — with its warm and cold fronts, that can stretch from Ontario to Texas — spins in that direction (due to the rotation of the Earth), and that spin direction carries down to the individual thunderstorms the weather system produces, and thus the tornadoes that are spawned from the thunderstorms."

Yes, ann, you have a great point about your memory of tornadoes. It seems like even though we have better warning systems now, there are still more fatalities.

What shocked me on this particular tornado was the fact that it went from one mile wide to 2.6 miles wide IN THIRTY SECONDS. I cannot even comprehend that growth rate. If my calculations are correct, that means it takes the new 2013 Ferrari f12berlinetta 36 seconds LONGER to go that distance than it did the tornado (the Ferrari reaches 1/4-mile in 11.1 sec. and tops out at 211 mph). Naturally, there was no way for the storm chasers in Jeeps and minivans to outrun it when it grew at a seemingly exponential rate!  I fear that these EF5's might become less rare yet this season.

If you are still living over there in Tornado Alley, good luck and be safe!

Re:   — The El Reno area was “super rare”

Notice how the cover up works regarding numbers:  It is far better, apparently, to under-report everything (EF3) and get to the truth (or closer to the truth) later (EF5) because people tend to remember and share the first numbers they read or hear.

What I have noticed living in Tornado Alley:  Tornadoes are larger, spin faster, are more frequent, and literally appear out of the blue with little or no warning.  Tornadoes -- in my long memory -- used to occur mostly in rural areas, did not stay on the ground long, and had low fatality and injury totals.

Comment by K Tonkin on June 4, 2013 at 8:51pm

This one is even better:

http://newsok.com/el-reno-tornado-is-super-rare-national-record-bre...

 — In the rare category of EF5 tornadoes, the one on Friday in the El Reno area was “super rare,” a National Weather Service meteorologist said Tuesday.

The National Weather Service updated its estimate Tuesday of a tornado that struck El Reno Friday, determining it was an EF5, the strongest classification for a twister. It was a record 2.6 miles wide and tracked across 16.2 miles.

The tornado was rare not only because of record width, but because of its multiple vortexes.

The increase in rating came not from damage estimates but from a study of Doppler radar information, said Rick Smith of the National Weather Service, Norman Forecast Office.

Damage indicators were sparse because it struck mostly in rural areas of Canadian County. That led to the difficulty in determining maximum intensity and maximum width of the tornado based on the ground survey, he said.

The initial estimate of EF3 was based on damage to several structures, but the inferred tornado intensity was an underestimate of the tornado strength because of the scarcity of damage indicators and “very small regions of extreme winds.”

Smith said they used mobile Doppler radar velocity to estimate the path width.

“In the rare EF5 category, this is in the super rare category because we don't deal with things like this, this often,” Smith said.

In 108 years, there have now been 14 F5/EF5 tornadoes recorded in Oklahoma, according to the National Weather Service records.

A total of 18 people died in the May 31 tornadoes and in subsequent flooding. The tornado came less than two weeks after an EF5 tornado hit Moore, killing 24 people.

On the Friday storm, the University of Oklahoma RaXPol, a rapid-scan, polarimetric, mobile Doppler radar, measured winds greater than 295 mph at several times and locations within 500 feet of the ground along the south side of subvortices on the south side of the tornado.

Upper Midwest schoolchildren get rare May snow day

http://thesouthern.com/news/national/upper-midwest-schoolchildren-g...
 
Schoolchildren in Minnesota and Wisconsin got a rare May snow day Thursday as a storm dropped up to 16 inches of sticky snow across a beleaguered region that was just starting to enjoy spring.

Bobbi Howe's daughters, 10-year-old Emma and 7-year-old Averie, stayed home in the southeastern Minnesota city of Owatonna, where 15.5 inches of snow made it hard for the family to open their front door. Owatonna was one of dozens of Minnesota and Wisconsin school districts that canceled classes for the day.

"I'm hoping they stay outside for most of the day and I'll just provide hot chocolate when they come in," Bobbi Howe said.

For Emma, the promise of a late spring snow day felt a little less like paradise.

"It's not cool," Emma said, adding that she was tired of winter and would rather be at school. "I don't like the snow right now."

Nancy Keller of Owatonna said her three kids were getting fed up with the endless winter, too. She said several of their tennis, soccer matches and field trips already have been postponed.

"They're getting tired of having things canceled," Keller said.

Such was the sentiment in other states that also got slammed by the two-day storm which dropped a wintry mix of snow and rain Wednesday from Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado and Wyoming into Nebraska, South Dakota and Iowa. It delivered the first May snowfall in Sioux Falls, S.D., in 37 years, knocked out power to tens of thousands of homes and businesses in several states, forced the closure of major roads and was a factor in at least one fatal crash early Thursday in Wisconsin between two semis on Interstate 94 near Menomonie.

Ashland, in far northwestern Wisconsin, got over 16 inches before the storm moved on to Lake Superior. Hayward, Wis., got 15 inches and other Wisconsin communities including Baldwin, Barron, Ellsworth and Spring Valley got 14 inches.

State transportation officials recommended no unnecessary travel across a large swath of southeastern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin. Meanwhile, the Minneapolis weekend forecast includes rain, with highs in the 40s and 50s.

But that mild respite was little consolation for fourth-grader Allie Keller, Nancy Keller's 10-year-old daughter, who had her own reasons for being unhappy with Thursday's unexpected snow day in Owatonna: "I had good hair today, so I kind of wanted to go to school."

This same ordeal has been happening in the Black Hills, SD, region! We are getting constant roller coaster weather already - going from 70's for 2 days to lows in the 10's for two days and back again... today we had "0% chance" for precip and, you guessed it, I saw flurries at lunch time! I love the warm days, but I can empathise with the girl in the article that winter just seems like it is never going to go away (in North America). We got 48" of snow over 3 weeks in April, which is "normally" one of our snowiest months, but all those spring sports... cancelled over and over. And yet during the entire rest of winter, we MIGHT have gotten another 48" altogether.  It sure is becoming interesting, and people are finally starting to notice and starting to question what is REALLY going on. Hooray!

By ARAB NEWS

The General Presidency for Meteorology and Environment yesterday warned of possible severe sandstorms in the northern and eastern regions and Riyadh. It also warned of below-zero temperatures in the northern areas of Tabuk, Turaif and Al Qurayat in the next few days.

PME spokesman Hussein Al-Qahtani said the sandstorms are the result of high winds buffeting the Kingdom. "We are now in transition from one season to another, and the Kingdom is usually affected by different rates of temperature in addition to high wind speeds,” he said.

"Wind speeds reached 60 km per hour yesterday and have been affected by the climate of the northern, eastern and central regions of the Kingdom, but God willing the storm will finish on Tuesday evening,” he said.

Al-Qahtani said he would keep the public updated on what precautions to take.

With regard to air traffic controllers and schools, he said: "We send our reports to all parties and they respond accordingly."

Dust storms hit Jeddah yesterday, leading to visibility levels of less than two kilometers. Some schools closed for the day. The Civil Defense is on high alert, it said.

Officials also ordered the suspension of classes in many cities and provinces starting Monday. The Civil Defense office advised teachers, students and other school staff to stay home to avoid getting caught in the storm.

The Traffic Department advised motorists to exercise caution and not drive fast and use headlights.

In addition, a sandstorm yesterday morning engulfed villages in Taif and reduced visibility on the road to less than a kilometer.

Some parents of students complained about schools that continued to teach despite the hazardous conditions, while media spokesman for Health Affairs in the province of Taif Siraj Al-Humaidan confirmed health centers as well as hospitals were on high alert and prepared to receive emergency cases of children and the elderly who suffer allergic reactions......

The temperature will fall below 0 degree Celsius in northern parts of the Kingdom especially in areas such as Turaif and Al-Qarayyat. He did not rule out snowfall in some northern regions today.

........The emergency rooms in the hospitals at the storm-affected cities were packed with citizens and residents suffering from asthma attacks, allergies and respiratory illness. Over 800 cases in Riyadh, and about 500 cases in Dammam and Jeddah respectively were reported.

The Jerusalem municipality, which had prepared for the weather conditions in recent days, was due to clear snow from the streets of Jerusalem on Friday.

Snow also fell in the Golan Heights in the early hours of Friday morning, and classes were canceled in the Golan and in the area around Safad because of the weather. Safad area residents were also asked not to drive by the municipality, and there was no public transport in the area. 

Cold and stormy weather swept through Israel since Tuesday, and Friday was expected to be the coldest day of the year.

On Friday, a seven-year-old girl was seriously injured after being swept away by a stream that flooded in Modi'in Ilit,  and a 96-year old woman from Sderot died as the ambulance that was taking her to hospital in Ashkelon slipped on an icy road.

Snow fell on Mount Hermon and at high elevations in the Golan Heights and the Galilee on Wednesday, as well as in the central mountains. In some locations, the winds exceeded 100 kilometers per hour.

A 70-year-old man in Netanya was lightly injured on Wednesday when he was struck in the head by a glass door that was blown off its hinges. Elsewhere in the city, on Yehuda Halevi Street, a tree fell on a car, but no injuries were caused.

On Tel Aviv's King George Street, traffic was disrupted when a large tree was uprooted by strong winds, tearing down power lines, ripping a bench out of the ground and blocking the street. Traffic lights and signs were blown down around the city. In south Tel Aviv's Levinsky Park, the city erected a new tent to provide shelter for the homeless.

Aviation traffic was also disrupted yesterday. A Dutch KLM jet scheduled to land at Ben-Gurion International Airport was forced to land in Cyprus instead. The Israel Airports Authority went on a state of alert for other possible disruptions in airplane traffic.

Both Safed and Jerusalem received some 40 millimeters of rain, according to the Meteo-Tech meteorology firm, while Netanya had 30 millimeters of rain. The Mediterranean was particularly rough, with waves reaching up to nine meters.

The level of Lake Kinneret rose three centimeters over the past two days. Air pollution levels in the south were higher than average.

Heavy snow fell in the Jerusalem area on Friday, and for the first time in four years, parts of Jerusalem were white with snow. Snow fell in Ramot, Givat Ze’ev and Har Gilo, and three centimeters of snow fall were reported.

US tornadoes: Tornado outbreak one of largest ever recorded in March

Meteorologists recorded 94 sightings of tornadoes for Friday, which, if confirmed, will mean it is one of the worst March days ever.

US tornadoes: 'The town is completely gone' says sheriff as 24 killed in storms

Four states were hit by powerful tornadoes, which raked across a wide swath of the American Midwest and south on Friday, killing 28 people.

The record for the largest March outbreak is 74 from March 11-13, 2006. Friday's estimate of 94 tornadoes will make it the worst ever - although it will take several days to confirm.

The twisters splintered homes, damaged a prison and tossed around vehicles across the region, leaving at least 13 people dead in southern Indiana, another 12 in neighbouring Kentucky, two more in Ohio, and one in Alabama, officials said.

"We are no match for Mother Nature at her worst," said Mr Daniels.

Televised video taken from the air showed rescue workers in Indiana picking through one splintered house, residents sifting through the ruins of a home, and a school bus thrown into a building. Several warehouse structures had their roofs ripped off.

Drought declared in south-east England

Drought status confirmed by Defra at summit of water firms, farmers and wildlife groups

Monday 20 February 2012 09.55 EST
Drought alert

Householders across the south-east of England should try to cut their use of water, the government has urged, as months of unseasonally dry weather mean the region is now in a state of drought.

Hosepipe bans could be introduced in large parts of southern England this spring, if dry weather continues. Only prolonged rainfall, and soon, could prevent a drought. Forecasters say that is unlikely.

Caroline Spelman, the environment and rural affairs secretary, said: "We are asking for the help of everyone by urging them to use less water and to start now."

The forced appeal by the government reflects fears that there could be serious water shortages in some densely populated parts of the country this summer.

In normal years, reservoirs would recharge during winter when vegetation is sparse and rain is quickly absorbed, but unusually dry soils have meant the little rain that has fallen has not been enough to reverse the effects of last year's drought.

Officials are now beginning to plan for what could happen in 2013, if a third dry winter plays havoc with water supplies.

Farmers and businesses have already suffered restrictions and are likely to face more, with licences to draw water from rivers and underground sources altered in recent months to reflect the new scarcity.

Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire, plus parts of Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and west Norfolk are still in drought, having been so since last year.

Also officially in drought are parts of the Midlands and swaths of the south and south-east – including Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Kent, London, Surrey and Sussex (West and East). Areas at risk of drought include Essex, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Suffolk, Wiltshire and the rest of Norfolk.

Spelman's appeal came after an emergency drought summit held on Monday, bringing together water companies, the Environment Agency and officials from the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).

It is unusual to hold such a summit, let alone so early in the year. The fact it was held reflects ministers' grave fears that a summer of drought could cause widespread disruption, particularly when water services will come under increased strain because of the Olympics.

But the summit was not enough to so

BRITAIN FACES DROUGHT CRISIS: WATER SHORTAGE WORST FOR 90 YEARS

Story Image

Anglia’s depleted Rutland reservoir yesterday, 20 per cent below its normal level

February 14,2012

By Nathan Rao

BRITAIN faces a nationwide drought disaster, experts warned yesterday.

Widespread restrictions on water supplies including hosepipe bans could be imposed as early as the spring.

A record dry 18 months with virtually no rain over the winter has left rivers and ­reservoirs at critically low levels. Water authorities last night warned that parts of the country were suffering the worst shortages for more than 90 years.

Record low water stocks could devastate crops and send food prices rocketing unless we get a sustained period of rainfall soon.

Trevor Bishop, the Environment Agency’s head of water resources, said: “We have a cumulative effect of two years of low rainfall. This is going to have a very strong input and there is a real risk of restrictions including hosepipe bans.”

Anglia Water was planning for “the worst possible scenario” and warned hosepipe bans could be in place before summer.

"We are taking this very seriously and have a drought committee meeting every two weeks"

Anglia Water spokesman Ciaran Nelson

Last night there were growing fears that the UK could this year face a situation similar to the summer drought of 1976. This saw widespread water rationing, with people having to collect water from street standpipes.

Parts of rivers have already dried up, forcing Environment Agency staff to move thousands of stranded fish to spots where water is still flowing.

Experts say that if the dry spell continues, the Midlands, East Anglia and the South-east of England are likely to be worst hit as underground supplies need to be diverted into parched rivers.

The Environment Agency said the impending crisis, which could also hit tourism and wildlife, had been building up for almost two years. Head of water resources Trevor Bishop said: “We haven’t seen anything this severe for at least two decades. The effect in the East of England is the worst since the 1920s.”
