"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.

BOLOGNA - ITALY Bad weather in May gives no respite. 5-13-2019

Flooding and flooding of rivers are creating serious problems in Romagna, in particular in the Cesenate where two people have been rescued. And severe discomforts are reported, with landslides and floods of watercourses in the Bolognese and Modena area. Homes evacuated, schools closed and the red alert extended until Tuesday when the rain stops but the rivers could still overflow.

The river Savio has broken its banks in several places, several bridges in Cesena have been closed to traffic. Traffic on the Rimini-Bologna railway network, between Cesena and Forlì, was interrupted from 7.50 this morning until 7.00 pm: the flood has almost submerged a viaduct of the line. Train movement gradually resumes and it is expected that tomorrow the situation, barring unforeseen events during the night, will return to normal.

Tropical cyclone Fani is gathering strength in the Bay of Bengal and is already equivalent to a category 3 hurricane as it barrels toward the eastern Indian coastline with more than 100 million people in its path.


According to Accuweather, additional strengthening is expected into Thursday as Fani could bring winds in excess of 213 km/h (132 mph), equal to a Category 4 hurricane.
There is a chance that Fani could briefly become a Super Cyclonic Storm, equivalent to a Category 5 hurricane, during this time.
Fani is expected to remain a powerful and dangerous cyclone as it approaches and makes landfall along the coast of eastern India between Thursday night and Friday.
Residents from northern Andhra Pradesh to Odisha, Jharkhand, West Bengal and Bihar are at risk for impacts from the approaching cyclone. 

According to the IMD, only 14 severe tropical cyclones have formed in the month of April since 1891 and only 1 of them ever made landfall, Cyclone Fani will be the second

'We are losing everything': Flooding in cyclone-hit Mozambique

Floodwaters triggered by Cyclone Kenneth's heavy rains rage in parts of Mozambique, causing homes to collapse.

Rescuers raced to help people caught in fast-rising floodwaters in Mozambique's cyclone-hit city of Pemba on Sunday, as houses collapsed in one neighbourhood and heavy rain raised fears of worse to come.

More than 160,000 people have been affected in the largely rural region, many left exposed and hungry.

"Help us, we are losing everything!" residents of the northern city shouted at passing cars as the rushing waters flooded their homes. Women and girls with buckets and pots tried to scoop away the torrent. But in vain - the water poured into doorways.

In the worst-affected neighbourhood of Natite, homes have begun to collapse, the UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said in a tweet.

"We are unfortunately expecting devastating floods," it said.

Cyclone Kenneth arrived just six weeks after Cyclone Idai ripped into central Mozambique and killed more than 600 people in the flooding. The new storm's remnants could dump twice as much rain as Idai, the UN said.

As much as 250 millimetres, or about one-quarter of the average annual rainfall for the region, has been forecast over the next few days.

"I have never seen such rains in my life," said one Pemba resident, 35-year-old Michael Fernando.

This was the first time in recorded history that the southern African nation has been hit by two cyclones in one season, again raising concerns about climate change.

Rescue workers evacuated at least 130 people to centres elsewhere in the city on Sunday, mostly by boat, said Salviano Abreu, spokesman for OCHA.

Some Pemba residents tried to pile up tyres and sandbags outside their homes to keep the rising water out, while elsewhere small, rapid rivers formed, carving trenches into the streets.

Children took refuge in a bus that appeared to be stuck as vehicles struggled on the streets. One woman stood, seemingly stunned, as the rain pounded down. 

"We will keep moving until we get somewhere safe," one man said, as people fled carrying belongings in plastic bags.

In the city's Mahate neighbourhood, a large crack had formed in the ground, prompting OCHA to warn of landslides.

There was no immediate word on the extent of flooding outside Pemba.

Authorities have said at least five people died after Kenneth roared in Thursday evening with the force of a Category 4 hurricane, stunning residents of a region where such a storm had not been recorded in the modern era.

More than 35,000 homes in parts of Mozambique's northernmost Cabo Delgado were partially or fully destroyed by the storm.

Images shared by OCHA showed rows of wooden houses, separated by sandy paths, that had been almost completely flattened. Only a few structures and the occasional coconut tree were left standing.

"Not a single house is standing any more," Abreu told reporters.

State of emergency for Canada with some water levels expected once every 1,000 years and the worst is yet to come in unprecedented flooding

Flooding in Calgary and Toronto...Credit london.ctvnews.ca

Flood-weary communities in Manitoba, New Brunswick, Ontario, and Quebec are preparing for a critical weekend as rising water levels force thousands to evacuate their homes. Rain is expected in Ontario's cottage country, stretching east into Quebec and Atlantic Canada. Montreal, Ottawa and many smaller communities have declared states of emergency, prompting the federal government to deploy hundreds of soldiers to help with sandbagging and other relief operations. "We're all just putting our shoulder to the wheel in the most effective way, to make sure that the personnel and the resources are available to fight the immediate disaster," Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said. But worried residents are watching as water levels rise fast, with little respite in sight. "We are watching the next system, possibly Wednesday into Thursday another huge system that will be sweeping across southern and central Ontario and southern Quebec," Gerald Cheng from Environment Canada told CTV Toronto. The worst is yet to come for Ottawa according to Patrick Nadeau, executive director of Ottawa Riverkeeper, which works to protect the Ottawa River and its tributaries. "What we're seeing for the Ottawa area right now is that the peak is set to come around Monday or Tuesday," he told CTV News Channel. The city issued a state of emergency on Thursday. "Those levels could be over half a metre from what we're seeing right now." Despite a night that gave Ottawa a break from the rain, water levels around the capital region are expected to rise half a metre higher than they did during a 2017 flood that was thought to have been a once-in-a-century event. Brian Streatton, engineering manager at the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, told CTV News Channel that the river is the highest it's ever been. "People that live along the Ottawa River from Ottawa down to Montreal are getting flooding at the highest level we've ever seen," he said.

"There was a high snowpack this year throughout the entire Ottawa River watershed and we've had some major precipitation events over the last couple of weeks." Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement forecasting up to 35 millimetres of rain in the Ottawa region. Four hundred soldiers have been deployed to help battle the flood water. A large focus is being put on the Constance Bay area, which is considered one of the worst-hit areas. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited Constance Bay on Saturday morning, where he spoke with local volunteers. Trudeau and his two sons helped with sandbagging. Dozens of volunteers, including players from the Ottawa 67's hockey team, also helped with the flood relief. Others donated food to help those in need. A morning report from the board that monitors levels in the Ottawa River near Constance Bay says water levels are just shy of their 2017 levels and are forecast to rise another 47 centimetres. At a measuring spot near Parliament Hill, where paths and parking lots along the river are already underwater, the board forecasts a rise of another 75 centimetres before water levels peak on May 1. Nadeau says flooding like this is becoming the new normal, adding that better coordination is needed. "We need sustained investment in our conservation authorities that help to plan for these disasters." Increased winds also hampered sandbagging efforts, causing waves to crash over walls protecting homes. Ontario Provincial Police are discouraging motor boats from going close to shore, after reports of wake causing additional damage to nearby homes. Officials announced Saturday night that the Chaudiere Bridge over the Ottawa River would be closed as of 6 a.m. on Sunday,due to flooding and high waters. The Ottawa River is expected to rise another 55 centimetres by Tuesday. Efforts are also underway to protect the Britannia Water Treatment plant, which purifies water for more than half of Ottawa. If flood waters block the road leading to the plantdeliveries of purifying chemicals will be threatening safe water supplies, officials said. There are also flood warnings in several other areas of Ontario, which includes the province's cottage country. Bracebridge Mayor Graydon Smith asked cottage owners not to come to their properties to check for the damage this weekend because there are a lot of roads closed. "Don't try and be a hero," he said. Bracebridge saw some snow overnight and about 34 mm of rain at nearby Muskoka airport. Smith said the late-season snow is a welcome sight as it acts as a "sponge" for rising floodwaters that now mark a "historical event." Property owners have been advised to wait until the emergency passes before checking on cottages.

Quebec: Rainfall warnings have been issued for the southern half of Quebec, with some areas expected to see another 60 mm of rain. Water at the Chute-Bell dam, built in 1915, has reached levels expected once every 1,000 years, but Hydro-Quebec said it's confident the structure is solid. Provincial police were patrolling homes and cottages along the Rouge River, about 140 kilometres west of Montreal, where 75 people were forced to evacuate over fears the flood waters could overwhelm the dam. Meanwhile, soldiers with the Canadian Armed Forces were dispatched to reinforce a dyke in Pointe-Calumet, northwest of Montreal, that was threatening to give way. Quebec authorities said that as of Saturday morning, 3,056 homes across the province were flooded and 2,736 were surrounded by water. About 2,000 people have so far been forced from their homes. Just in the city of Rigaud, near the Ontario border, 685 people have left their houses where a mandatory evacuation order is in place. Officials say by Sunday, water levels could surpass those seen two years ago. Montreal and 13 other municipalities have declared states of emergency in Quebec. Flood waters in Gatineau are expected to take weeks to recede. Some 1,800 homes there are in the flood zone, with about 4,000 people at risk. Around 750 have asked for help. Quebec's Public Security Minister Genevieve Guilbault said Saturday about 50 landslides have been reported across the province. "The situation is changing hour by hour," Stephanie Picard, spokesperson for Canadian Red Cross, told CTV News Channel. The Red Cross has 10 centres across Quebec to help those affected by the floods, she said. "Last night (Friday) we provided safe shelter for close to 500 people who had no other option but to turn to the Red Cross to have a safe place to sleep," she said. In Montreal, the Galipeault Bridge, which connects Ile-Perrot to Montreal's West Island, is closed until further notice due to rising water. In Rigaud and Point-Fortune, residents have been defying mandatory evacuation orders. According to Rigaud Fire Chief Daniel Boyer, only 10 out of 170 homes had been evacuated as of Saturday.

New Brunswick: Meanwhile, the Saint John River has been receding in Fredericton, where parts of the downtown core were underwater this week. Geoffrey Downey, a spokesperson for New Brunswick Emergency Measures Organization, said while it's raining across much of the province on Saturday, officials aren't expecting a lot of precipitation. The Red Cross has registered 940 evacuees from 330 households in New Brunswick as of Friday afternoon. Red Cross officials in New Brunswick said Friday 70 per cent of the people asking for flood assistance this year also asked last year. Premier Blaine Higgs told reporters that with two floods in as many years it's clear climate change is affecting flooding frequency, and his new Conservative government will take this into account in future planning. The latest forecast predicts waters will slowly recede in most areas over the next five days.

Manitoba: In southern Manitoba, the rising Red River has forced some road closures and a small number of evacuations near St. Jean Baptiste but earlier predictions for major flooding between the U.S. border and Winnipeg haven't come to pass.

Hail apocalypse: 13 killed and over 100 injured as hailstorm ravages three villages in Uganda   By  Strange Sounds - Apr 24, 2019

13 people have been killed and 100 others have been injured following a heavy rain and hail storm in Buyende district, Uganda. The unusual weather ravaged the villages of Kabugudo, Nabweyo, and Nakabembe between 8:00 pm and 10:30pm on Sunday, April 21, 2019. Most of the deceased were swept away by floods into nearby swamps where they drowned.

The storm swept away 300 homes and residents have found refuge at Kidera health centre IV. Survivors were transferred either to Kidera health centre IV or Kamuli general hospital respectively.

A victim explains she decided to lock herself in her house. However, in no time, she saw her rooftop shaking and on her way out, it felt on her head.

The UK has already had more wildfires in 2019 than any year on record

https://www.newscientist.com/article/2200502-the-uk-has-already-had...

 

The UK has been hit by nearly a hundred large wildfires in 2019, making it the worst year on record already.

The hot spell in February and the recent Easter heatwave have contributed to a total of 96 major wildfires of 25 hectares or larger, eclipsing the previous high of 79 across the whole of 2018.

Researchers told New Scientist that the figures, collated by the European Forest Fire Information System, were evidence that climate change had already heightened the risk of wildfires in the UK.

More than 100 firefighters battled wildfires over the Easter weekend across Illkley Moor and Marsden Moor in West Yorkshire. Another fire broke out on moorland near Marsden on Tuesday afternoon, requiring ten fire engines to attend.

Fires throughout the year

There were also wildfires in Cornwall, Dorset, Derbyshire, Northern Ireland, the Peak District, Rotherham, Wiltshire and Wales, according to the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC).

Scotland was affected by fires across the Highlands, including a large one that posed a “serious risk” to the Moray windfarm.

The spate of blazes follows a series of major wildfires during the hot, dry weather of 2018, including the Saddleworth Moor fire near Manchester, which burned for five days and made pollution levels spike.

Paul Hedley, national wildfires lead for the NFCC, said it was “really significant” that the number of large wildfires in 2019 had already overtaken 2018’s tally so early in the year.

The big change he has observed is that the wildfires are no longer confined to the traditional season of fires from late March to late September. “What seemed to happen last year and is happening this year, is we are not talking about a wildfire season – we are getting significant wildfires happening throughout the year,” says Hedley.

The scale and duration of the wildfires was a huge stretch on fire and rescue service resources, Hedley adds.

Spring is the point in the year when flammability peaks, with the most dead leaf and woody matter available to burn, says Thomas Smith of the London School of Economics, in the UK.

Layered on top of that seasonal risk has been fire-friendly weather and an increased risk of ignition through accidents, such as a barbeque in the case of the West Yorkshire blazes, or arson.

“Both the fires in February and over this Easter weekend coincided with long warm dry periods with steady easterly winds – fire weather – and also with ignition risk from school holidays,” says Smith.

Weather that is conducive to wildfires has become more likely in recent decades, with the average length of warm spells increasing from 5.3 to 13.2 days in recent years.

“I would argue that those statistics suggest that we are already experiencing climate change and that it has already led to increasing wildfire risk,” Smith adds. He says the past two years have been the worst for UK wildfires that he can remember.

The total area burned in 2019 so far is 17,199 hectares, almost on a par with the highs of 2018 and 2011, but with eight months of the year left to go.

The rural nature of most UK wildfires means relatively little property is damaged compared to the multibillion-dollar cost of Californian wildfires. But they draw fire engines away from towns and cities, increasing fire risk there, and can cause health problems by causing pollution levels to rise, as happened in Greater Manchester last year.

Evolution of the Saharan dust ‘outbreak’ across Europe
By SWE | 23 April 2019

http://www.severe-weather.eu/mcd/evolution-of-the-saharan-dust-outb...

The following sequence of model maps in 6-hour intervals covers the interval from April 23 at 06h UTC to April 25 at 00h UTC. Note the ‘tongue’ of dust pushing across France into the British Isles and Ireland at the beginning of the interval extend into the northern Atlantic and reach Iceland by late on April 24 and then push further into the Strait of Denmark towards Greenland. Meanwhile dust pushes across central into eastern Europe as far as the Baltic states, Poland and Ukraine and as far north as southern Sweden.

Large dust loads persist over the central Mediterranean: the southern coast of the Mediterranean in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt, across Malta and south Italy, into Greece and western Turkey.

While Saharan dust events are not rare, particularly across the Mediterranean and southern Europe, the current one is very extensive and is producing major dust loads.

Snow falls in Western Australia’s Stirling Ranges in April for the first time in 49 years

A white Easter? Dozens are hiking up to Bluff Knoll this long weekend to catch a glimpse of the extremely rare April snowfall.

https://www.news.com.au/technology/environment/snow-falls-in-wester...

Locals couldn’t have anticipated this: Snowboarding in Western Australia in April?

The state’s southwest had more than a Good Friday, with residents waking up to record snowfall. As predicted in news.com.au’s weekend weather forecast, the Stirling Ranges have seen snow just in time for Easter — and for the first time in 49 years.

While snow this time of year is extremely rare, the Stirling Ranges have broken April records this weekend with residents enjoying the earliest recorded snow event in a calendar year in the state’s history.

The last recorded fall before this time was April 20, 1970, according to Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) records.

And the frost could potentially spread across the Wheatbelt by Sunday morning.

The unseasonal weather has seen Perth residents snow boarding in their yards and making their way to the 1099-metre tall bluffs to get their own snaps for social media. And those who couldn’t make the trek, anticipated the traffic if they tried.

BOM forecaster Matt Boterhoven told the ABC snow was an extremely rare occurrence in April.

“It’s exceptional. We’ve only recorded once, in the last 100 years, snow as early as this on top of the Stirling Ranges,” he said.

“It’s related to a very strong cold air mass moving over the southwest of the state, so when conditions get below freezing and there’s precipitation, snow can form on top of Stirling Ranges.”

"Fingers nearly snapped off, but I’m an official member of the WA Bluff Knoll Ski Club," one social media user proudly posted. Source: Twitter @jackwschmidtSource:Twitter

The cold snap also saw Albany and the Great Southern hit by hail at 1pm on Friday.

With temps predicted to peak at 13C and 18C over the next couple of days, locals can expect Friday’s cold front to stick around until Monday.
