Just two weeks after on August 30, 2016 I’m heading back up the A9 in the dark hours of night aiming to summit Britain’s 3rd, 4th and 5th highest, Braeriach, Cairn Toul and Sgor an Lochain Uaine respectively. With the ascent of Cairngorm on the same day of climbing […]

WEEKEND: FINALLY A TASTE OF FALL FOR NORTHEAST, SNOW FOR ROCKIES

A storm system centred over the Northern Plains will separate the West and East from winter and summer respectively. While snow and temps 10-15 below normal dominate the West, summer lives on from St Louis to Philly with storms and heavy rain in between. As for the Northeast, following some hot summery days, fall is […]

WET & WINDY WEEKEND AHEAD, KARL ADDS COMPLEXITY TO NEXT WEEK

Today marks the autumn equinox when day and night are the same length. Beyond today, night will be longer than day and this becomes noticeable as warm air masses retreat and cold gains ground to the north. With cold building and creeping southward, so the thermal gradient steps up, increasing the jet stream and therefore we […]

UK: SEPT LIKELY TO END WITH FINAL TASTE OF SUMMER, FIRST TASTE OF AUTUMN

As we approach the end of September you’d expect to experience cooler, windier days as the jet strengthens in response to the increased north-south temperature gradient. We are indeed seeing the jet strength increase, especially when tropical cyclones push heat northward while central Greenland gets ever closer to -40C. There’s no question that the pattern is becoming more energised as we […]

EL NINO GONE BUT WARM POOL IN GULF OF ALASKA RETURNS, COLDER US WINTER?

[s2If current_user_can(access_s2member_level1)] It should be of no surprise how warm last winter panned out not just for the United States or Europe but for much of the Northern Hemisphere given the strength of the El Nino. As is the case when you get a super El Nino, it takes over the global atmosphere with warmth circling the globe, breaking […]

MET OFFICE & MET EIREANN NAME STORMS FOR 2016-17, ACCUWEATHER SUGGEST MORE THAN LAST YEAR

Recent winters have been somewhat disappointing if you love the classic snowy scenes along with crisp, frosty nights. The winters of 2009-10 and 2010-11 seem like distant memories. It’s safe to say that since those back to back cold winters to open a new decade, we’ve entered a warmer, stormier time once again like we […]

WINTER CREEPS EVER CLOSER OUT WEST WHILE ENDLESS SUMMER CONTINUES IN EAST

Endless summer continues east of the Rockies while pulses of colder, fall-like air brings more snow and a step ever closer to winter in the West. Meanwhile both Southwest and Northeast get help from the tropics with much needed rainfall. GFS indicates 1-2 FEET of snow for parts of Montana, Idaho and Wyoming over the […]
