  1. Hi Don, I respect you immensely and therefore feel the need to tell you that it looks like there’s a major problem with the Yakutat temperature sensor.

Relative Humidity Wind Chill (°F) Heat Index (°F) altimeter (in Don, here are just 2 examples of hourlies that look bogus: 1. 16:53 on 12/15 is at 54 F, a rise of a whopping 17 in one hour from the 37 the previous hour while overcast?? That can’t be. And the winds didn’t change much. Light E to light SE. So, no major warm front/airmass change it would appear. 2. At 9:53 on Dec 16th it was 37 and it then rose a whopping 15 in one hour under light rain to 52 with continued light E winds. I may post more later about the problems with this station when time permits.
  2. This refers to a solar grand maximum during the last half of the 20th century. It was the most active 50 year period in at the very least 350 years. Combine that with the real possibility that we're now early into a grand minimum (perhaps multicentury min) and I still have to wonder how much cooling effect from the big swing in solar activity is possible. Regardless, I'm still waiting for a clearcut global cooling to finally commence.
  3. This is fascinating to read. However, I hope this isn't a case of just retrospective/backward fitting. Regardless, we live in very interesting times with regard to the getting quieter sun!
  4. I may be seemingly contradicting myself somewhat since I said Brick's post is great, but I like a lot of this post, too, especially the idea of respecting someone with different political views or a different religion. I feel I do. So, in saying people should respect each other, I'm not being a hypocrite. However, due to so many not respecting others with different political views or religions, I will not talk either with certain people in real life. The beauty of BB's (not FB) is the chance to talk about these things while remaining anonymous. So, that's different to me.
  5. A great Brick post imo. Personally, though I think Facebook is great for those who like it, I have no FB account and have no interest in opening one. I value my privacy way too much.
  6. Even a very strong Nino's could easily still end up near normal tempwise in the SE (i.e., no torch) while the N US and Canada torch. Analogs suggest a much better than average chance for one major winter storm in at least the ATL-AHN corridor. I know Burns & Mack are so excited to hear this.
  7. Finished a late walk about an hour ago. Ok temp.'s but very little breeze and high humidity. Sweat index was high. No rain though. GaWx walking index was still a not too good 3.
  8. This article isn't saying we'd be necessarily as cold as the 1600's. It is saying the solar output will likely be similar to the Maunder min of the 1600's. It will be fun for sun weenies to follow.
  9. This is quite common in strong El Niños.
  10. Five strongest El Nino peaks per Nino 3.4 (not necessarily five strongest Nino summers): 1997-8, 1982-3, 1972-3, 1888-9, and 1877-8 These five suggest the winter of 2015-6 will have a better than average chance for one major winter storm in ATL. Then again, I said something similar for 2014-5 and ATL proper got very little. Keep in mind that analogs are good tools but they're nowhere near crystal balls! Also, the analogs suggest a near normal to a little colder than normal winter for temperatures is most likely as opposed to brutal cold like 2009-10, 1977-8, and 1976-7.

  11. YW. Yes, 4th day in a row! I think the seabreeze has been triggering many of these.
  12. 1) Nothing beats golf on TV for me, especially the final round of the Masters and other majors. 2) Firehouse > Subway
  13. NFL games went downhill when they stopped having the clock stop until the next snap on out of bounds plays outside of 2 minutes left in the first half and 5 minutes left in the 4th quarter. That in itself took away a fair bit of "in play" time at the time. However, the no huddle trend has helped to compensate.
