    Arctic Sea Ice Extent, Area, and Volume

    Well this is Interesting... Moreover, Arctic mid-summer temperatures, north of 80°N latitude, have dipped to near freezing over the past days. This is likely in large part linked to the cold North Atlantic sea surface temperatures we’ve been witnessing. All this suggests ocean cycles, and not CO2, are the real Arctic drivers. Snow and ice climbing past decade The cold polar temperatures are naturally having an impact on Arctic snow and ice. Japanese blogger Kirye tweeted here that Arctic sea ice volume is currently at the 4th highest level since 2003, thus defying the dire alarmist predictions of Arctic sea ice disappearing by now. ------------------------- 40-year veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi at WeatherBell’s Saturday Summary shows how the Earth’s surface has cooled dramatically over the past three years and that Arctic sea ice is piling up. http://notrickszone.com/2018/07/15/global-sea-sea-surface-temperatures-have-seen-pretty-dramatic-turnaround-says-40-year-meteorologist/

    Global warming spike

    Wait a Gosh dern second... I started reading the Articall. This caught My eye.. [QUOTE:] This occurrence may also be responsible for a steady increase in salinity in the Barents. In other words, this sea is becoming more like the Atlantic than the frozen North.[/quote] Then in the introductory paragraph, you have this.. .. What Kind of Parsel Tounge is this?

    Afternoon folks! WHAT a YUGE relief from the HEAT this Early July! Well deserved for ALL of Us in the SouthEast! Walked out the door this Morning, @ 5:30am, WHAT a WELCOME Respite! It felt like Early Fall. After nearly *Whiteout* "Heavy RAIN" conditions yesterday as T-Storms moved though AND putting on a Awesome Lightshow..

Currently 79F here on the Beach, partly Cloudy Humidity & DEW IS AT 77 & 70.9% respectively. Winds are out of the NORTH @ 17MPH gusting too 25 mph or so.. Beach water temp, (at Johnny Mercers pier, Wrightsville beach) is at 89F, , Yes you read that correctly, Bath water temps.. This VARIES up & down our local beaches, in Carolina Beach it is at 84F. Turned off the AC this morning, (IT was cooler outside than indoors!) Opened the Winders, airing out the Home. Fishing is beginning too enter the summer Doldrums, though the King & Spanish Mackerel bite is "off the hook" with-in one mile off the beaches, Lots of reports of YUGE KING Mackerels exceeding 30 pounds up to 50 pounds have been common in the past couple week(s).. Spanish Macks in the 4~6 pound class. There have been SAILFISH caught & sighted off the Local pier here,and MANY caught with-in one mile off the beach.. Now get this! A Guy caught a MAHI~MAHI While fishing a Bottom Rig, Fishing for Red Drum , ON THE BEACH.. There's even been a few Bonefish caught here in the area(s), Almost unheard of! Anyhoo, sry for the lil OT posting.. Here's that pic of the Mahi~Mahi caught ON THE BEACH!

    73.7/81 for Our high today.. Good rain chances today;; This lil tidbit from Our local NWS Office.. Wilmington which is sitting at 14.36 inches of rain for the month, by far, a record for May. If Wilmington can get 0.64 inches of rain today, reaching 15.00 for the month and almost 6 inches above the previous record, that would put the city at 5 Standard deviations above the mean for May. (400% above Normal)..
