    Although we may see a milder spell first half of december, the STJ is there. Nino is starting to flex.


    Hopefully it's just the first couple weeks of December. The MJO should become favorable the later half of December.

    The latest flash flood warning issued for SE FfxCo is personally interesting...they typically mention the areas/neighborhoods AROUND where I live (e.g., Franconia, Lincolnia, Fort Belvoir, Mount Vernon) but this time they actually included our neighborhood, Hayfield. And we are indeed having a "round two" that is rivaling yesterday afternoon...maybe not horizontal rain, but definitely diagonal, and I can fully believe the 1-3" that NWS says is possible within the next hour.

    I'm just on the other side of 495 right on the edge. Yesterday was the most difficult drive of my life!

    "The amount of soot and sulfate particles over the Atlantic Ocean was much higher in the mid 20th century than now; by blocking and scattering sunlight, those particles temporarily cooled the planet enough to counter act greenhouse gas warming.  That cooling is also thought to have temporarily suppressed hurricane activity in the Atlantic".

    I was referring to cleaning the air. That has only happened regionally.

    Thanks CAPE!  That was an interesting read.

    Here is another interesting read that partially disputes the assumption in your piece that hurricane frequency and intensity are increased by warming.  https://www.sciencenews.org/article/hurricanes-frequency-danger-climate-change-atlantic        Also, the possibility exists that cleaner air today may be exacerbating warming compared to the mid 20th century.  Did we actually increase global warming by cleaning up the air??

    The more we know the more we realize that we have a lot to learn.

    That effect would be too localized.
