    First Significant U.S. Snowfall of the Season Possible This Weekend

    The calendar may say early August, but for one part of the United States, the first significant snowfall of the season may be in the cards this weekend.

    Given the time of year, it's probably no surprise that the location in the U.S. is Alaska (though snow can also fall in the higher terrain of the Lower 48 in August as well).

    Here on LI summer lasted like 3 weeks. Most of last week it didn't get above 67, although it was back in the 70's and 80's this week

    And most of the northwest is on fire. So we've got that going for us. Which is nice.

    And always remember there's a super volcano under Yellowstone that's 20,000 years overdue to erupt. So next time you ask yourself if you want a beer, the answer is yes.

    "The planet was hotter in 2016 than any year since record-keeping began more than a century ago, NOAA confirmed Thursday in a new State of the Climate report. (subject to change with a POTUS Tweet)


    Last year surpassed 2015 as the warmest in 137 years of records and was the third consecutive year a new record high was achieved, according to the report released Thursday afternoon. NOAA attributed the record warmth to global warming, but also a strong El Niño in early 2016.


    Sea surface temperatures were also the warmest on record, the report confirmed. Since 2000, seas are warming at 2.92 degrees Fahrenheit per century, far above the 1950-2016 trend of warming at 1.8 degrees per century – yet another suggestion that global warming is accelerating.


    Global sea levels rose to another record high and are now about 3.25 inches higher than the 1993 average, and 2016 was the sixth consecutive year of sea level rise. Seas have averaged a rise of 0.13 inches per year in the past two decades and are rising fastest in the Indian and western Pacific oceans, the report also said.


    Another record high was also achieved in global greenhouse gas concentrations. One such gas, carbon dioxide, averaged a global concentration of 402.9 parts per million for the year, passing the 400 ppm threshold for the first time in more than 800,000 years, NOAA said. Concentrations rose by 3.5 ppm in one year, the biggest spike observed since record-keeping began at Hawaii's Mauna Loa 58 years ago.

    In the Arctic, average land surface temperatures were 3.6 degrees above the 30-year average and broke the previous record high by 1.4 degrees. Average land surface temperatures in the Arctic are now 6.3 degrees warmer than in 1900, the report said. At its minimum, Arctic sea ice shrank to 1.6 million square miles in September, which was 33 percent smaller than average and tied 2007 for the second-lowest sea ice extent on record.


    In Antarctica, record low sea ice extents were recorded in August and November, with the latter measurement drastically smaller than the 30-year average.


    Led by NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information, the State of the Climate report has been released annually for the last 27 years. The climate report is a collection of data from tens of thousands of measurements compiled by nearly 500 scientists in more than 60 countries around the globe."

    Fake news. ;)
    I've found that discussing global warming is a great ice-breaker.

    Exactly.

    "Those with outdoor activities or travel plans in the Brooks Range especially over Atigun Pass over the weekend should be prepared for winter weather conditions," the NWS warned in a statement.

    If you go there unprepared at any time of year, you deserve the result.

    The only real solution is significantly fewer humans.

    Unfortunately, this problem will likely end up self-solving.

    I was about to be mad about summer ending so abruptly, but then saw it was for the Brooks Range, yawn. Snow close to sea level this time of year is uncommon.
    Boooooring :p;).

    Ahhh, CO2. Bring it baby, feed the world. Although, we are a distant second in the emission catagory. Behind the ocean.

    What a mawroon! His analogy compares something we can predict down to the day for the next 1000 years because we know which way everything is spinning to something like predicting the weather with models that are constantly updated and changed because they are wrong and often disagree with each other. What exactly is his point?? Freaking over-educated elitist shill thinks we are all carbon emitting stupid meat bags.
