Is this shit going to get bad or is this meteorologist the Ding of weather news? Tobias
“San Francisco is about to be hit with a ‘brutal’ storm so severe that a meteorologist says is ‘one of the most impactful’ he’s ever seen”
For the Bay Area it will be impactful in terms of localized flooding and wind. It’s not unheard of for the region, like a once every decade type deal, just hasn’t happened recently with the drought. Last real memorable one was probably the late 90’s 96/97 or so.
California has a long history of flooding that people probably don’t think of when they think about the state. Currently though we are getting just blasted with storm after storm every 3-4 days from the South Pacific jet stream. Grounds pretty saturated and will probably lead to continued bad flooding, but nothing that’s as scary as like 2016 when Orville dam almost failed. Areas south of Sacramento will flood pretty badly again today as some levees have failed. That in addition to the local rivers around that area are fed from a watershed in the mountains that recently had the Caldor fire and with these high precipitation rates in short time frames it’s just shedding off the mountain.
This video didn't go where I was thinking it would. Really interesting to see how the rainfall has been moving east over the last few decades.
But also I’m excited to watch this thing unfold tonight from inside my living room.
so that had some good winds, we’ve been out of power for 3 days, heard the transformer blow right before the power went out.
On tap Mon/Tuesday is some serious rainfall which could lead to extensive flooding across the state.
You wouldn't want to live where it floods all the time.
Or where the bushfires come in
Was this meant to be a response to the question about pubic hair?
It's the new fad. All the yutes are doing it
from a Red Cross email that was forwarded to me:
Over the past 99 days (since November 1, 2022), we've initiated 82 separate Disaster Relief Operations (DROs), including two Level 5s, three Level 4s, and ten Level 3s. In the same window, we also executed and completed the 4-month Level 7 response phase for Hurricane Ian (remember that one?), which made landfall on Cayo Costa, Florida on September 28, 2022, as Category 4 hurricane with sustained winds of 150 MPH.
I've written to you before about the phenomenon we call "acute-to-chronic," which describes how the frequency of big disasters has changed so dramatically in the United States over the past 40 years. You all know the story, by now: in the 1980s we had an average of three "billion-dollar disasters" each year, while over the past five years we've averaged 18 "billion-dollar disasters" each year: a 6-fold increase. Below is a map of the 18 billion-dollar weather and climate disasters we had in 2022.
In the past, the 99 days between the beginning of November and the beginning of February were not filled with Level 5s and 4s (or even Level 3s). No, this time used to be a tame 3 months. By comparison, if I was writing to you about the same window from 2014-2015, we initiated 30 DROs—a 3rd of what we initiated over the past 99 days—and not a single one above a Level 3. To put a finer point on it: over the past 11 years, we've initiated 21 Level 4-7 DROs in the November-January window and 13 of those (or 62%) happened in the past 5 years, including all of the 5s, 6s, and 7s. What's this data telling us? It tells us that we're now running major operations continuously throughout the calendar year without a break. It tells us that "acute" has indeed become "chronic."
Didn't know where to put this, but Vogtle 3 (new nuclear plant in Georgia) reached criticality today.
Something like 5 years late, but at least they're going to continue finishing the project (though they're pushing much of the cost onto the consumer). I believe it should literally double the capacity for the plant as they're adding two new reactors.
Was watching the weather yesterday and we had the potential to set a new record high for March 6. The previous record high was set... last year.
was 73 and sunny in SW Ohio, and you could literally feel the temperature jump right off a cliff last night. currently below 40
California might just wash away
Been a great year for combating the drought all across the state very happy.
Still a wide range of outcomes next week and the while there is a higher risk of flooding, that Twitter handle is a 18 year old kid from UC Davis that tends to be a little more sensationalized about the weather.
I miss snow
Something something manning equations
the chatch still underrated as one of the worst people to ever post on this here site
When I worked for NPS down there we used to have to drive under some of the condemned hi houses to get up the beach. Believe those washed into the ocean a few years ago.
I love Hatteras (the National Park, not so much the shitty developments) -- it's a special place -- and it saddens me that might not be there in a generation or two.
Pretty good article here: All the ways the most common bit of climate misinformation is wrong | Ars Technica
it’s about time you Australians get to work restoring the heart of Te Fiti
and the fact that he still lurks, likes posts, but doesn't post anything is such a bitch move
Dude is soft as baby shit
You guys need a Greens Party to vote for in your country because you lot have no idea on what global warming actually is.
What is it, actually?
It's the whole planet's surface warming up.
For example you want to know why we get so many floods and fires and earthquakes.
Fires: means that the sun's too hot for the soil to handle and things catch on fire.
Floods: means that you get a lot of rainfall that is so strong that the soil in the ground can't absorb it all.
Earthquakes: means that the soil is too hard and it can break open at any time.
You should know what EPA is by now.
It's what your air is like where you live.
It can be smoggy just like some parts of India are full of smog.
Factories causing fog in the air by using smokers.
None of that is any good for you.
Yea everyone knows all of that. Except the Earthquake bit, that’s simply not true. Republicans are at fault for where we stand as a country WRT the environment please do not lump all of us in with them.
Also the Green Party in the United States is a Putin operation to siphon off votes from Dems.
Lol what the fuck is this earthquake shit
I’ve never in all my inter-netting years seen anything like that shit. Must be an Aussie conspiracy thing
Wwweeellllll one of this bunch of Australian immigrants thinks alcohol isn't a drug and isn't a depressant so....
I guess my theory that earthquakes are the result of Donald's McDonalds shits has been disproven. Damn.
I don't know if anyone was following Cyclone Freddy, but it was a really incredible storm (and quite destructive and deadly as there was already a cholera outbreak from a previous storm in one of the poorest regions on earth - Malawi and Mozambique)
Look at this pathway. Started in N of Australia, drifted east and then turned due W strengthening into a massive Cat 5 storm. Wrecked Madigascar, went ashore in Mozambique, dumped epic amounts of rain in Malawi, turned east, redeveloped in the Mozambique channel, turned NW again and game ashore in Mozambique again, dumping more biblical amounts of rain.
