USA Temps “Have Dropped Off A Cliff”…”Coldest November Morning” In 38 Years! Record Lows Down To Texas!

Not very often does one see such an image…

Frozen North America 18 Nov 2014

Image snipped here, 8 a.m. EST, 18 November, 2014.

And it’s only mid-November…autumn!

Weatherbell Models here has an assessment of the situation so far. It writes:

America ‘as a whole’ awoke to the coldest it has been in November since 1976 — 38 years ago. The Lower-48 or CONUS spatially average temperature plummeted overnight to only 20°F typical of mid-winter not November 18th!

An astounding 226-million Americans will experience at or below freezing temperatures (32°F) on Tuesday as well — if you venture outdoors.

More than 78% of the surface area of the Lower-48 reached or fell below freezing Tuesday morning

Record lows from Idaho to Nebraska and Iowa south to Texas and east through the Great Lakes, the eastern 2/3 of the US will shatter decades-long and in some cases, century-long records. Temperatures east of the Rockies will be 20-40°F below climate normals.

Compared to normal, temperatures over the past several days have dropped off a cliff — to 10°C below climate normal –“

    We have about one cm of snow. Temperature on the outside of the house, on the wall, was 20 F at breakfast time. The official low for Detroit this morning was 11 F. We are adding CO2 like mad with the fireplace.

    Does anyone care for a bet how many hours it will take before the “Polar Vortex, caused by AGW” is duested off?

      They’ve already found new euphemisms: Greek letters and edible thistles.

      Specifically, “Omega Blocking” and “Artichoking” to add to the infamous “Polar Vortex.”

      Be thee not doubtful, for the prophesied warming IS coming. Next weekend.

      Also predicting the possibility of more cold extremes, however. Climate Change is a fact “beyond any reasonable doubt” … or so they have concluded, … with inductive reasoning.

      Whatever.

        It is an intelligence test. Those who believe it have failed the test.

          …as even the less intelligent quit the hopeless warmist movement only the least intelligent (or most corrupt) will remain in it… a self-selection process (as in other movements – like the EU bureaucracy).

        The “edible thistle” bit is a nice addition to the atmospheric lexicon.
        Omega Block (and cousin Rex Block) have no pizzazz in comparison.

    But it’s the warmest year evah, evah. NOAA says and NCDC says. Don’t yeh know.

    Coldest November in 38 years! Hmmmmmm. Of course… and next they’ll tell us all the global warming supercomputers used for weather forecasting and climate predictions told us it would happen… after all, we now know global warming cases global cooling.

    This is such good news for the economy and the recovery.

    We all know that this crazy creature – GDP – that the economists use to track the economy will record an increase in spending and an increase in economic activity. The higher the GDP, the stronger the economy!

    Here in the UK, where we’ve had a milder winter in November, the energy companies are complaining that they have lost £100-00 per household, and this will affect their profits.

    The colder it gets, the better for the economy.

    Just get your head around that and you will understand why more global warming leads to more cooling.
