"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.

Two spots in Middle East hit with 129 degrees, hottest ever in East...

Temperatures simulated by the GFS model in the Middle East on Friday reached 129 degrees (54 Celsius).
The temperature in Mitribah, Kuwait, surged Thursday to a blistering 129.2 degrees (54 Celsius). And on Friday in Basra, Iraq, the mercury soared to 129.0 degrees (53.9 Celsius). If confirmed, these incredible measurements would represent the two hottest temperatures ever recorded in the Eastern Hemisphere, according to Weather Underground meteorologist Jeff Masters and weather historian Christopher Burt, who broke the news

It's also possible that Mitribah's 129.2-degree reading matches the hottest ever reliably measured anywhere in the world. Both Mitribah and Basra's readings are likely the highest ever recorded outside of Death Valley, Calif. 

Death Valley currently holds the record for the world's hottest temperature of 134.1 degrees (56.7 Celsius), set July 10, 1913. But Weather Underground's Burt does not believe it is a credible measurement: "[T]he record has been scrutinized perhaps more than any other in the United States," Burt wrote. "I don't have much more to add to the debate aside from my belief it is most likely not a valid reading when one looks at all the evidence." 

If you discard the Death Valley record from 1913, the pair of 129.2-degree readings from Mitribah and Basra over the past two days would tie the world's highest known temperature, also observed in Death Valley on June 30, 2013, and in Tirat Tsvi, Israel, on June 22, 1942. But Masters saysthe Israeli measurement is controversial. 

Basra, the city of 1.5 million about 75 miles northwest of the Persian Gulf, has registered historic heat on two straight days. On Thursday, it hit 128 degrees (53.6 Celsius), the highest temperature ever recorded in Iraq, which it then surpassed on Friday, rising to 129. 

While the Middle East's highest temperatures have occurred in arid, land-locked locations, locations along the much more sultry Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman have faced the most oppressive combination of heat and humidity. Air temperatures of about 100 degrees (38 Celsius) combined with astronomical humidity levels have pushed heat index values, which reflect how hot the air feels, literally off the charts. 

In Fujairah, on the east coast of the United Arab Emirates, the dew point — a measure of humidity — reached 90 degrees (32 Celsius) at 4 p.m. local time Thursday. The 90-degree dew point, combined with the air temperature of 97 degrees (36 Celsius), computes to a heat index of over 140 degrees (60 Celsius). 

However, this combination of temperature and humidity is so extreme that it's beyond levels the heat index is designed to measure. The index,developed by R.G. Steadman in 1979, is actually only intended to compute values up to about 136 degrees

In Bandar Mahshahr, Iran, on Thursday, the air temperature soared to 106 degrees (41 Celsius), which, combined with a dew point of 86 (30 Celsius), would produce a heat index over 140 (60 Celsius), also over the limit. These conditions were only slightly less extreme than July 31 last year, when Bandar Mahshahr posted an air temperature of 115 degrees (46 Celsius) and dew point of 90 (32 Celsius), which resulted in an over-the-limit heat index of 165 degrees (74 Celsius). Bandar Mahshahr sits adjacent to the Persian Gulf in southwest Iran. 

In the much more arid Basra, when the temperature hit 129 degrees Friday, the dew point was only in the 30s while the relative humidity was a bone-dry 4 percent. These conditions produce a heat index lower than the actual air temperature — of about 115 degrees (46 Celsius). That is, the ultra-dry air made it feel not as hot. 

The torrid conditions observed in the Middle East over the last two summers may be a harbinger of even more extreme heat in the future. A study published in the journal Nature Climate Change in October cautioned that by the end of the century, due to climate change, temperatures may become too hot for human survival. 

In March, the National Academy of Sciences published a report that stated worsening heat waves are among the weather events that can be most easily connected to human-caused climate change.

Note: The original version of this story indicated Basra hit 129.2 degrees (54 Celsius) Friday based on information posted on Weather Underground. But updated information posted on OgiMet, which pulls weather data from around the world, indicated the high temperature was actually 129.0 degrees (53.9 Cel....

Heat dome sweeping across U.S. bringing prolonged sweltering temper...

A heat dome is set to bring temperatures well above normal for this time of year.
A 'heat dome' is sweeping across the US this weekend, bringing prolonged sweltering temperatures, expected to reach 15 to 25 degrees Fahrenheit above what's normal for this time of the year. 

A 'heat dome' occurs when high pressure traps hot air underneath it and usually lasts a number of days. Combined with high humidity, heat indices are forecast to soar - the highest indices are predicted to be felt across the Corn Belt and Midwest, topping 110 degrees Fahrenheit (43 Celsius). 

Many areas are already feeling the burn and public health warnings are in place, including advice from the White House reminding people to check on each other, particularly vulnerable groups, in the extreme heat. 


Older people, small children and pets are considered especially susceptible to heat-related illness. 

Excessive heat warnings and heat advisories have been issued by the National Weather Service for much of the Plains, Mississippi valley, Midwest and southern states. 

The heatwave enveloping the Midwest is compounded by 'corn sweat', where the release of moisture from the plant leaves into the air adds to the mugginess. 
The 'heat dome' is forecast to move towards the East Coast over the weekend. Temperatures are expected to hit 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38C) in several states, including parts of Kansas, Texas, South Carolina and Georgia, Sunday. 

"This dome formed largely because the jet stream passing over the US-Canada border is preventing cooler air from pushing southward," meteorologist Mike Musher from the NWS' Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland, said
"During the summer months, with the jet typically so far north and not much cold air to dig into the United States, it's natural for these large high pressure systems to develop," he said. 

Southwestern states already experienced a heat dome last month, with Southern California seeing temperatures rise to 111F. That heatwave also resulted in four heat-related deaths in Arizona and wildfires in some states. 

 This round of extreme temperatures has already forced some workers in Chicago to walk off the job due to the sweltering conditions. Burger King workers on Chicago's South Side walked out as they struggled to work in the heat with a broken air conditioning system.

Who you gonna call? Mysterious green slime bubbles up from sewers in Utah town

  • The foam was spotted by residents on Thursday in Bluffdale 
  • Early reports indicated the foam was caused by same algae in Utah Lake
  • The foam came from the Welby Jacob Canal, which is connected to the Jordan River - which is Utah Lake's only river outlet 
  • But health officials believe foam may have been caused by chemicals used for a moss removal process in the canal  
  • Those exposed to lake's bloom had symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea, fever

A mysterious green foam has left neighbors of one Utah neighborhood more than a little concerned after it was spotted bubbling from a storm drain on Thursday. 

The Salt Lake County Health Department immediately sent both its emergency response team as well as scientists to test the bright green foam after it was reported in the Bluffdale neighborhood.  

Early reports indicated that the foam was caused by a toxic algae bloom that currently covers 90 percent of Utah Lake - and has already caused more than 100 people to fall ill.

The foam was sourced to the nearby Welby Jacob Canal, which feeds water to local farms. The canal is connected to the Jordan River, which is connected to Utah Lake. 

'It's certainly possible that the water in the Welby Canal here does have some of that particular harmful algae that produces toxins in it,' department official Nicholas Rupp told Fox 13 Now.

But Rupp said the foam is more likely the result of a recent moss removal process the canal underwent earlier this month. 

'The chemicals that they use for the moss prevention process foams and causes a foaming action,' Rupp said. 

But just because the toxic algae didn't cause the green foam doesn't necessarily mean it isn't present in the canal. 

Rupp said the department tested water in the canal just to make sure. Results are expected in the next few days, according to KUTV

The foam began to recede after the irrigation line to the canal was shut off, Bluffdale city engineer Michael Fazio told KSL

Deluge hits Siberia's largest city - 3 'rare' tornadoes in two weeks

Tornado - first since 1954 - signals freak downpour, opening craters in roads which swallow up cars. 

The sudden storm caused flooding in Novosibirsk's metro stations, city centre streets and shops - while the water opened cracks in asphalt large enough for vehicles to fall into. A waterfall was spotted close to the central railway station, a major stopover on the Trans-Siberian Railway. 

'New tourist attraction,' quipped one online joker. 

A rare tornado seen over Burmaistrovo village - the first in Novosibirsk region in more than 60 years, but the third in Siberia in two weeks - preceded the flash flooding in and around the city with a 1.51 population, the third largest in Russia. No injuries were reported from this rare phenomenon. 



The press secretary of Western Siberian Weather Centre Renad Yagudin said: 'We had a couple of really strong tornadoes in July 1954. 

'One picked up a milkmaid and a tractor with a driver inside. Miraculously, the same tornado carefully 'put' them down so that they were not even hurt.' 

In the storm that followed Monday's tornado, cars fell into suddenly-opening gaping crevices close to Sibirsky Mall in Koshurnikova Street and Zhilina Street in the central district of Novosibirsk, and holes also appeared on the outskirts of the city. 

A key compounding factor were malfunctioning or non-existent storm drainage ducts. '16 mm of precipitation occurred in 36 minutes at Uchebnaya meteorological station,' said Renad Yagudin, press secretary of the West Siberian Hydrometeocentre. 'Obviously, this is a very strong rain'. 

Several meteorological stations in Tomsk and Kemerovo regions reported the strongest rains in 30 years. 

Experts disagree as to whether global warming is a cause of what many locals see as significant weather changes.

Earthquake releases high levels of methane in the atmosphere near Greenland

A M4.7 earthquake hit the Arctic Ocean, east of Greenland, on July 12, 2016.

High levels of methane were measured in the atmosphere on July 15, 2016, just where the earthquake hit indicating that the quake destabilized methane hydrates contained in sediments in that area.

On July 15th, measurements show methane levels as high as 2505 ppb and 2598 ppb at an altitude of 4,116m (13,504ft) and 6,041m (19,820ft), respectively.

All this indicates that the earthquake did cause destabilization of methane hydrates contained in sediments in that area.

This video shows a massive burst of methane from the Sleeping Dragon seep. The explosive burst was strong enough to eject rocks up on to the front deck of the ROV Hercules back in 2015.

As temperatures keep rising, some 1.6°C or 2.88°F warming due to albedo changes and some 1.1°C or 2°F temperature rise of the world’s oceans seems well possible by the year 2026 due to methane releases from clathrates at the seafloor.

The situation is dire and calls for comprehensive and effective action.

Summer Interrupted in Italy, Switzerland as Snow Whitens the Alps

https://weather.com/news/weather/news/snow-summer-alps-cold

It's unusual for snow to fall at lower elevations in July across this area.

Winter interrupting summer has become a common theme this July.

Earlier this week, snow fell across parts of the northern Rockies in the U.S., and now, parts of Europe are experiencing a taste of winter. Cold temperatures have taken hold across the Alps, and snow was reported – even at lower elevations than normal for this time of year.

From T-Shirts to Coats and Jackets

The July heat was short-lived.  Temperatures plunged and by late Wednesday, snow began to fall in the higher elevations of the Alps. The snow continued to fall through Thursday.

Flooding in Prinzapolka, Nicaragua
Around 5,000 people have been forced to evacuate their homes after heavy rain caused floods in Nicaragua and Guatemala. 

The heavy rain began to fall on 09 July, 2016. La Aurora International Airport in Guatemala City recorded 360 mm of rain in 24 hours between 10 and 11 July. Flores in El Peten Department, Guatemala, recorded 170 mm during the same period. 

Nicaragua 

In Nicaragua, the Caribbean coast area was worst affected. Local media reports say that levels of the Prinzapolka, Escondido and Rio Grande de Matagalpa rose rapidly, threatening communities nearby. In the North Caribbean Coast Autonomous Region, around 4,000 people were evacuated and 300 homes damaged, mostly in the municipality of Prinzapolka. 

Nicaragua's disaster management agency (Sistema Nacional para la Prevención, Mitigación y Atención de Desastres - SINAPRED) set up 10 shelters to accommodate those displaced. Director General, Dr. Guillermo Gonzalez, said that disaster prevention plans were put in place and were successful. No fatalities have been reported. 

According to SINAPRED, as of 13 July, the situation is easing and river levels now falling. However, around 200 people still remain in the relief camps, mostly in Prinzapolka, where they will receive support, medical care and drinking water until the situation normalizes.

Homes in Arborfield, Sask., are being evacuated after a structure holding water back south of town broke apart.

The province said a "hold back road" has given way and water is flowing towards the west side of the town, located about 260 kilometres northeast of Saskatoon.

The breach is about 30 metres wide and it usually holds back about a kilometre-and-a-half of water. The province said water flowing into town from the breach is expected to hit as early as this evening. 

Arborfield mandatory evacuation

The town issued the evacuation order and door-to-door notification has begun. 

Approximately 400 people who live in Arborfield are being told to head to the town office where officials can tell them where they can stay. Town officials said there is room for people to stay in nearby communities like Zenon Park.

Coun. Joanne Rusk told CBC News there's still full access in and out of Arborfield, and officials plan to stay at the town office until they are told they have to leave. 


State of emergency declared

The towns of Arborfield and Carrot River, Sask., and the rural municipality of Arborfield have declared states of emergency after heavy rainfall caused flooding in both communities.

In two hours, 10 centimetres — or four inches — of rain fell in Carrot River. 

As the declarations were made, it was still raining in both northeastern communities, and the situation is getting worse, according to Carrot River Mayor Bob Gagne.

Fifty basements have flooded so far and that number is expected to rise as rain continues to fall and drainage systems struggle to keep up.

A state of emergency was declared in Estevan, Sask., on Sunday evening after the southeastern city received 130 millimetres of rain. There are more heavy rainfall warnings again today, ranging from the southwest to the northeast.

Sandbagging and heavy machinery are currently being used to repair breaches in berms near Arborfield. 

The town has evacuated its Special Care Lodge and sent residents to be with family or stay at other facilities in the Kelsey Trail Health Region.

There were 36 seniors removed from the long-term facility on Monday as a precaution. Sandbags placed around the lodge meant that water never entered the facility. 

The water near the facility is receding, according to the province, and if rain subsides, residents could be back by the end of the week. 

Highway 23 at Arborfield is closed due to flooding. 

Arborfield is approximately 260 kilometres northeast of Saskatoon. Carrot River is about 25 kilometres north of Arborfield.

Major flooding triggers Prairie town emergency, Estevan, Saskatchewan.

Monday, July 11, 2016, 12:10 PM - After a weekend that brought widespread severe weather to the Prairies, the threat for torrential rain, strong wind gusts, moderate hail and an isolated tornado extends into the start of this work week.

State of emergency

The City of Estevan, Saskatchewan declared a state of emergency Sunday night after training thunderstorms brought upwards of 120 mm of rain in less than three hours.

"The sheer abundance of water resulted in hundreds of flooded basements, dozens of businesses being affected and severe damage to many roads and infrastructure around the city," the city said in a statement early Monday.

According to EMO coordinator Helen Fornwald, flash flooding conditions exist over the areas of 4th Avenue South, Woodlawn Avenue South, Humane Society Road, and Spruce Drive north of Henry Street.

"It is extremely important for the public to stay away from these areas for your safety," Fornwald says.
