2. Yikes....even worse.

"storms will become stronger and more frequent" was the sentence i remembered from Al Gore's doc on climate change.
But seeing this up close and real, so to speak, brings home the unrelenting damage that is being caused.

4. Many years ago I read a novel by David Brin, I think it was.

Anyway, in his story there were hurricanes in the Pacific that never died. They would hit land, slow down a bit, then go back out to sea & gain steam again & repeat the cycle. I think it was the same story where tress around the world started to die. Very bleak enviro-apocalyptic type story.

* I could be wrong about it being David Brin novel. Might be a different book.

6. I am feeling for the people at the receiving end of those repeated storms.

If they all hit in roughly the same areas.........

9. #4 is right behind them

The circulation is still slow, but it's present and we should have a named storm soon.

Usually these storms fizzle out in the cooler water east of Hawaii. There's no cooler water this year, thanks to El Nino.

I don't know if they'll chug all the way across the Pacific to be more typhoons hitting Asia. I hope not.. However, the wind map is starting to look like a necklace of storms, Atlantic and Pacific, stretching across the planet above the equator.

10. Interesting! No cooler water!

Is this what they are calling the Godzilla of El Ninos? And the "Blob"?
Do you have a link to the wind map that you referenced? Thanks!

18. Saw that last night

before I went to bed... I often review the planetary weather before turning in.

I got a chill up my spine when I saw that. It suddenly made me think of a few movies about the dire situation we may be headed for... movies like day after yesterday (or whatever its title is) and 2012 and one other I can recall even a snippet of its title might be. I only saw those movies because I was at some friend's house when they wanted to watch it.

I do recall an image in one of those movies where meteorologists were looking at mega-hurricanes all lined up around the equator, horrified. This isn't as dire but that appears to be unusual and daunting to say the least. I saved a screen capture of it myself. FWIW, we have been experiencing a ten day series of M class solar flares, not sure if they are related but if they are in some way, I wouldn't be surprised.

22. Wow

That's a cool portal for info! I like that one. I've been using this one out of Canada for a few years:

Sometimes the links and graphics come and go but it's still pretty useful.

26. After breaking heat records all summer, we just had an unprecedented November-type

windstorm here in the Pacific Northwest.

The extremes keep coming.

27. Yeah, that was weird, wasn't it?

Very hard to farm crops when the weather changes this fast.....drought, fires, then storms at the wrong time.

28. Found this article that brings together a number of factors

Looks like short term and long term changes are coming together to magnify impact.


http://www.adn.com/article/20150801/another-unusually-warm-winter-forecast-alaska

All of Alaska is likely to be warmer than normal in the next three months, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center. Probabilities of unusual warmth edge up to 80 percent in the Gulf of Alaska coastal areas. The outlook extending into the next year also predicts warmer than normal temperatures for almost all of the state, with similar heat expected in the Pacific Northwest and the West Coast.

The warmth has multiple sources: persistently high sea surface temperatures, which are expected to linger; a shift into a positive and warm phase of the cyclical Pacific Decadal Oscillation; a powerful El Nino that is developing in the Pacific; and wavy jet-stream patterns that bring warm weather north and cold weather south.

All of that comes on top of long-term warming in Alaska and in the Arctic.

“That’s kind of in the background that everything’s projected onto. Every year, that background gets a little brighter, a little redder,” said Thoman, who prepared the Alaska section of the August/September/October forecast.
