"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.

Snow covers parts of the SAHARA DESERT for the third time in 40 years as freak storm sees 16 INCHES fall in one day

  • Snow fell in small Saharan desert town of Ain Sefra, Algeria, in the early hours of Sunday morning
  • It is the third time in 40 years snow has fallen on the city, it was also spotted in 2016 and 2017 
  • Locals noted up to 16 inches of snow in some areas of the desert  

Up to 16 inches of snow has fallen on an town in the Sahara desert after a freak winter storm hit the area on Sunday.

This is the third time in 37 years that the town of Ain Sefra in Algeria has seen snow cover the red sand dunes of the desert. 

Snow started falling in the early hours of Sunday morning and it quickly began settling on the sand.

While the town saw an inch or two, the sand dunes on its outskirts were covered in snow.

Photographer Karim Bouchetata 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.'

In 2016, the town known as 'The Gateway to the Desert' saw deep snow shortly after Christmas and it caused chaos, with passengers stranded on buses after the roads became slippery and icy. 

Come January 2017, the town saw snowfall yet again, and  children made snowmen and even sledged on the sand dunes.

Before that, snow was last seen in Ain Sefra on February 18, 1979, when the snow storm lasted just half an hour.

A spokesman for the Met Office said this morning: 'Cold air was pulled down south in to North Africa over the weekend as a result of high pressure over Europe.


Unusual: The Saharan desert town has only seen snow three times int he past 37 years - in 1979, in 2016 and in 2017

'The high pressure meant the cold weather extended further south than normal.'

Ain Sefra is located around 3,280ft above sea level and surrounded by the Atlas Mountains.

Despite its altitude, it is extremely rare to see snow in the town, and it is normally six to 12 degrees Celsius in January.

The Sahara Desert covers most of Northern Africa and it has gone through shifts in temperature and moisture over the past few hundred thousand years.

Costa del Sol covered in SNOW: Holidaymakers stunned as golden beaches turn white

HOLIDAYMAKERS jetting to the Costa del Sol for some winter sun got a shock today - after finding some of its golden beaches covered in white.

The sand on the beach at Fuengirola - a favourite winter getaway for British OAPs - had an uncharacteristic look about it as midday temperatures struggled to hit double figures.

Beach bars were deserted as many locals and tourists opted to stay indoors.

Retired shop worker Patricia Dugsdale, who flew to Malaga overnight to stay with her expat daughter Jacqui, said: “I wasn’t expecting to get my swimsuit out at this time of the year but I didn’t think I’d be joking about making a snowman on the beach.”

HGV driver Robert Duggan added “My hotel manager says people were walking round in shorts and a T-shirt a few days ago so I obviously picked the wrong week to come.”

The dip in temperatures followed a week of sun and blue skies in the area and other British holiday favourites on the Costa Blanca as winter failed to make an appearance. 

Last Thursday holidaymakers in resorts like Torrevieja a short drive south of Alicante were pictured lapping up the sun as temperatures reached an unseasonal 23 degrees Celsius (73.5 degrees Fahrenheit).

Later yesterday morning/on Monday morning - after a sudden dip in temperatures and one of the coldest nights of the year so far - the Costa del Sol was hit by heavy rain and thunderstorms.

One local living on the beach front at Fuengirola joked on Twitter after waking up to see it under a blanket of white: “When the Costa del Sol becomes the Costa del Snow.”

Town hall sources insisted that although it appeared to have snowed, the white blanket was actually thick hail which had settled on the beach in temperatures of around five degrees Celsius (41 degrees Fahrenheit).

"Record Lows From Bangor to Charleston": Bomb Cyclone Ushers In Brutal Cold, Ice Storm

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-01-06/record-lows-bangor-charle...

“Record cold temperatures continue to blanket the northeastern U.S. this weekend along with gusty winds. This combination is leading to wind chills well below zero across much of the region, making it difficult to even go outside. This cold will not only be dangerous for people’s health, but will also increase the risk for pipes to freeze along with other infrastructural problems. People need to dress in layers to guard against frost bite if outside for any amount of extended time. This brutal stretch of winter weather will last into Sunday before abating into next week,” said Ed Vallee, a meteorologist at Vallee Weather Consulting LLC. A blast of Arctic air from Canada, Greenland, and Siberia has descended onto the Northeast through the weekend plunging temperatures and wind chills to dangerously cold levels in the wake of the “bomb cyclone” that exploded over the East Coast last week.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued wind chill advisories and warnings for much of the Northeast through the weekend.

asd Wind chill advisories and warnings are in effect until Sunday morning rendering most of the Northeast hazardous to human health. In some parts, wind chill values may decline to 45 degrees below zero, which can cause frostbite to exposed skin in under 10 minutes.

Ed Vallee warns the “cold is not just in the Northeast. Record lows expected from Bangor, Maine to Charleston, SC tonight!”

He further expects, “more record lows tonight from Portland all the way down the I-95 corridor to DC. Impressive as we approach the coldest point in the winter season!”

Early next week, another system has a high probability of blanketing the Northeast with a mix of snow, sleet, ice, and rain. As of Saturday, the system is tracking eastward into the Rockies and moving into the Central U.S. on Sunday.

The Weather Channel forecasts the next round of wintry precipitation to hit the Northeast on Sunday night and continue into early next week, Sunday Night This system will slide eastward on Sunday night, spreading a wintry mix farther east. Snow is likely from the Great Lakes into parts of the Ohio Valley, interior Northeast and northern New England. A mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain is possible from central Illinois and central Ohio southward into parts of Tennessee and possibly northern Georgia. Rain is likely from eastern Oklahoma into Alabama, with a few thunderstorms in eastern Texas and Louisiana. Monday The chance of snow will stretch from Indiana into the interior Northeast and northern New England. There will be areas of sleet and freezing rain in parts of the mid-Atlantic, Ohio Valley and the central and southern Appalachians. Otherwise, rain is currently expected through much of the South, with a few thunderstorms possible toward the Gulf Coast.

Aussie heatwave: Victoria will resemble 'blast furnace' above 43C (110F)

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objecti...

Authorities have warned of "catastrophic" bushfire conditions across Australia's southeast, with Victorians in the path of "blast furnace" conditions that could be the hottest in several years.

The state is set to swelter through their single hottest day in two years as an extreme heat event takes hold.

Victoria's ambulance commander Paul Holman says conditions need to be taken seriously and that people should stay indoors unless absolutely necessary.

"This heat is a killer," Holman said on Friday.

"It's going to be like a blast furnace tomorrow and you need to adjust what you do. You need to take care. So put off the sporting events, put off the outside events, stay inside."

In NSW, Surf Life Saving and the Rural Fire Service are warning residents to stay safe on the state's beaches and prepare for potential bushfires.

"Lifesavers and lifeguards are out in force but we need the public to take some responsibility for their own safety," Surf Life Saving chief executive Steven Pearce told AAP.

"The tragic incidents we have witnessed through December and early January are a reminder of the power of the ocean."

Temperatures in Melbourne on Saturday are expected to climb north of 41C, the hottest they've been since 42.2C was recorded on January 13, 2016. Geelong and Bendigo will feel even hotter, nudging 42C. Swan Hill, Echuca, Warracknabeal and Mildura will hover around 44C at the hottest part of the day.

Conditions have fire authorities deeply concerned about the very real risk of bushfires sparking up.

"If a fire starts it will run, it will run hard and has the potential to do significant damage," Emergency Management Commissioner Craig Lapsley said. "On these days the conditions can beat the crews and the terrain."

Total fire bans have been declared throughout SA and Victoria and across most of Tasmania for Saturday.

On Friday drivers were delayed on the Hume Highway due to a stretch of road "melting".

Victoria Police warned motorists should expect delays on the right-hand lane heading towards the city near Broadford on Friday evening, as a 10km stretch of road was reportedly melting amid the hot weather.

Meanwhile, the Australian Energy Market Operator, the national energy regulator, is in talks with more than a dozen power-hungry companies in Victoria and South Australia in a bid to get ahead of weekend blackouts.

The 14 companies, with major factories across the two southern states, may need to shut down operations over the weekend as heightened airconditioner use could lead to major blackouts.

Companies including Australian Paper, Visy and BlueScope Steel have been paid incentives to cut down on operations to avoid the kind of sporadic blackouts South Australia struggled through last summer.

Sky News weather meteorologist Tristan Meyers told news.com.au the country's southern and eastern states will swelter.

"There is a lot of heat coming this week affecting South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and NSW," he said.

"On Saturday, it's going to be really hot in Victoria and Tasmania. Melbourne, Geelong and Launceston will have their hottest days in two years."

The mercury is tipped to hit 41C in Melbourne on Saturday while Launceston and much of Tasmania is expected to reach at least 32C.

On Sunday, NSW will have its turn to sweat with much of the state expected to reach above average temperatures.

"We have seen some hotter days, but the state is going to get pretty hot. Western parts of Sydney will absolutely swelter and Penrith will hit the mid-40s," Meyers said.

The state will then be hit with incredibly hot, gusty conditions which will lead to a spike in fire danger throughout the state.

Catastrophic fire danger is expected in South Australia's Mount Lofty and today Western Australia is likely to see severe to extreme fire danger across much of the state.

James Taylor, the acting manager of the Bureau of Meteorology's extreme weather desk, said Australians need to be vigilant.

"Any fires that start will be extremely difficult to suppress," he said, citing the hot and gusty conditions expected across much of south east Australia on the weekend.

An analysis from finder.com.au, the country's number one comparison site, found Aussies could save a whopping $415 this summer if they opt for a fan rather than their airconditioning unit.

Using your fan for 8 hours per night for the duration of summer will cost Aussies a total of $17, whereas using your aircon for the same amount of time will cost you $432, the site found.

Angus Kidman, finder.com.au editor-in-chief, said Aussies need to embrace the humble fan more.

"It might be tempting to crank your aircon for hours, but if you don't want to end up with a hefty electricity bill at the end of the month, try to avoid overuse.

"We need to give fans a little more credit. They might not cool the entire room down, but they do a very good job at keeping you comfortable, especially if they're directly blowing on you, and they're much cheaper to run."

"Aussies have become accustomed to staying cool. Some people will even drop the temperature so low they end up putting a jacket on just to stay warm! Don't do that — moderate your usage to cut down on bills."

Here's how the weekend is looking across Australia.

ADELAIDE

The South Australian capital will have a scorcher this weekend with the mercury expected to hit 41C. Adelaide is already getting a taste for the hot weekend with temperatures reaching 37C today. Rain is expected late on Sunday which will also bring down the temperature substantially to 26C.

MELBOURNE

Melbourne is heading for its hottest day in two years on Saturday with highs of 41C expected. But after struggling through Saturday, Melburnians will be treated to a cool change overnight and see a drastic 20 degree drop. Temperatures will struggle to hit 21C on Sunday.

HOBART

A total fire ban is in place for Tasmanians this weekend as some of the island state's towns will have their hottest days in years. Hobart will swelter through a 33C Saturday but a cool change on Sunday will drop the temperature back to 23C.

CANBERRA

The nation's capital is set to sizzle. Today, the mercury will hit 33C, Saturday will be worse at 36C and Sunday will be the hottest of all at 38C. Rain isn't expected until at least Tuesday with showers increasing next Thursday.

SYDNEY

Sydneysiders won't see their weekend properly heat up until Sunday when temperatures are expected to hit 38C. Despite that, Saturday will still reach 31C and today is heading for tops of 28C. A cool change will bring showers by next Tuesday.

BRISBANE

Queensland's capital will enjoy nice summer weather for days. Temperatures are expected to sit in the low-30s for the weekend and much of next week. Rain is expected next Wednesday.

DARWIN

As per usual, the Top End is going to be hot and wet this weekend and for much of next week. Temperatures will be past the 30s and thunderstorms are possible every day. Humidity will also be extremely high making the nights especially sticky.

PERTH

The west coast capital is going to be a little more pleasant than the east coast's record-breaking weather. Perth will be a model of summertime weather this weekend with temperatures expected to rise from 27C today through to 31C on Sunday and 33C on Monday. Clear skies are expected every day. The state's scorching conditions today are also expected to subside after an expected cool change this afternoon.

Boston is drowning in historic 15ft flood of icy water - trapping people in cars and homes - as 'bomb cyclone' storm explodes over Northeast closing schools, cancelling 4,000 flights and killing six

  • The Northeast is currently being battered by a severe winter storm that started early Thursday morning 
  • A rapid plunge in pressure has caused a 'bomb cyclone' system of fast heavy snowfall and winds up to 76 mph
  • Boston experienced historic flooding as floodwaters hovered close to 15.1 foot mark similar to Blizzard of 1978 
  • Three people were killed in North Carolina, one in South Carolina, and two in Virginia, officials said 
  • The storm has caused traffic chaos as plows work around-the-clock to try and keep roads clear
  • More than 4,000 flights in and out of the US today have been cancelled thanks to the storm
  • All flights in and out of JFK and LaGuardia Airports in New York City  have been temporarily suspended
  • Schools were ordered closed in New York, many parts of New Jersey, Boston and elsewhere in the region  
  • Temperatures are expected to stay well below freezing throughout the weekend, with parts of New England registering temperatures colder than Mars 
  • On Thursday, New York Gov Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency for several counties
  • Meanwhile, Florida, Georgia and SC continue to dig out of the rare winter storm that hit them Wednesday  

Boston experienced historic flooding on Thursday, as a 'bomb cyclone' winter storm hit the Northeast, bringing heavy snow, winds and storm surge. 

Meteorologists said Boston was unofficially nearing a water level record set during the Blizzard of 1978.

Matt Doody, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Taunton, told the Boston Herald that the Weather Service couldn't 'officially' call it a new record, but the water was hovering around the 15.1 foot mark set during the historic storm 40 years ago.

The system is also very similar to a storm that hit the Northeast on the exact same day in 1989, according to the Weather Service.

At least a dozen people have been rescued from flooded homes in Marshfield, and a handful of others were rescued from cars under water in the South Shore region of Massachusetts.

'It's up over the roof of cars. It's up over four feet,' Deputy Fire Chief Louis Cipullo said of the floodwaters in the area.

The nor'easter threatened to dump as much as 18 inches of snow from the Carolinas to Maine - causing schools and office to close and thousands of flights to be cancelled.

Many businesses were flooded during storm surge high tide, in Boston, Massachusetts on Thursday

Forecasters expected the system to be followed immediately by a blast of face-stinging cold air that could break records in more than two dozen cities, with wind chills falling to minus 40 in some places this weekend. 

Blizzard warnings and states of emergency were in wide effect, and wind gusts hit up to 76mph in some places. Eastern Massachusetts and most of Rhode Island braced for snow falling as fast as thre inches per hour.

The storm was powered by a rapid plunge in barometric pressure that some weather forecasters were referring to as bombogenesis or a 'bomb cyclone' and which brought fast, heavy snowfall and high winds. 

Boston's fire department shared an image on Twitter of crew members saving a man whose car was floating in the ice water.

'Firefighters come to the rescue of an adult male trapped by rising water,' the dept. tweeted. 'The firefighters… bringing the driver to safety. Please avoid these dangerously high waters.'

The first responders were then seen carrying the man to safety.  

One Boston resident shared a Snapchat video of someone rowing through their icy street with a kayak.

The video was captioned: 'Cai has fled the scene via kyak.' 

Mayor Marty Walsh warned people early on Thursday to stay off the highways as the storm hit the city. 

'There continue to be too many cars on Boston's roadways. If you're not a plow or emergency vehicle, get off the roads. Crews are doing there best to clear the snow but there are still too many cars on the roads,' the mayor said in a tweet. 

Meanwhile another video showed the moment a garbage bin was knocked over as trash was washed down the street by floodwaters in Boston.

Storm Eleanor impacts western Europe with 200,000 French without power flights cancelled in Holland as category 2 hurricane strength storm heads East

Earthwindmap
Storm Eleanor cuts power to 200,000 households in northern France on Wednesday after storm Carmen cut power to 65,000 households in western France on new years eve, Monday.
The storm is set to move to eastern regions throughout the day and is thought to bring more destruction.
Storm Eleanor which has produced wind gusts of more than 100mph which is a category 2 hurricane strength,
(Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale) battered Ireland and the UK overnight with thousands without power
According to Reuters, households in the Normandy region were the worst hit by storm Eleanor, Enedis, a unit of state-controlled EDF said, while the area around Paris and northeastern Picardie and Champagne-Ardenne were also among those affected.
The latest weather warning and strong winds come after winter storm Carmen battered western France on Jan. 1, with some 40,000 households in the Brittany region temporarily losing power on Monday.

A storm disrupted air traffic at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport on Wednesday, with many flights cancelled or delayed.
Airlines cancelled 176 out of a total of more than 1,200 incoming and outgoing flights on Wednesday morning, a spokesman for the Dutch national airport said.
That number was expected to rise, as the storm would grow stronger during the day, with wind gusts reaching speeds of up to 120 kph (75 mph).
Schiphol is Europe’s third busiest airport in a number of total passengers per year, after London Heathrow and Paris Charles de Gaulle.
Storm Eleanor battered the Netherlands on Wednesday morning with wind speeds of up to 110kph in coastal areas according to DutchNewsLive.
The KNMI weather bureau had issued a nationwide code yellow alert but raised this to orange for Noord-Holland, Friesland, Flevoland and the Wadden islands for late morning.
Trees were blown down and trains between Amsterdam and Breukelen were disrupted for a time after a tree hit the overhead cables.
High-speed trains between Rotterdam and Breda were cancelled because of the weather and Intercity services between Rotterdam and The Hague were also reduced, Dutch rail operator NS said.

Baked Alaska: USA's northernmost state has been very warm 

 (January 2, 2018)  http://www.king5.com/article/news/nation-now/baked-alaska-usas-nort...

 If you want to escape the cold, should you head to ... Alaska? 

While most of the lower 48 states continue to endure a hideous deep freeze, Alaska has had an unusually warm start to winter.

In fact, several locations in northern and central Alaska — such as Utqiaġvik (Barrow), Bettles, Kotzebue and McGrath — all had their warmest December on record, according to climatologist Brian Brettschneider. Fairbanks had its 2nd-warmest December. Over the first three weeks of the month, the city was a whopping 20 degrees above average..."

Winter Begins With Record-Breaking Warm Weather in Alaska 

(December 20 2017) https://weather.com/news/climate/news/2017-12-20-alaska-warm-decemb...

 The start of winter has been absurdly warm in Alaska, propelling many locations toward the warmest start to December in recorded history.

Anchorage, Juneau and Kotzebue all saw the warmest Dec. 1-18 on record, according to data from ACIS.

In Fairbanks, that period ranked second-warmest on record, with a departure from average temperature so far this month an astonishing 20 degrees above average.
