Meteorologist: “Can’t See Any Evidence” …Asks WMO What’s The Basis For Forecast Of “Another Record-Breaking Summer”?

On May 26, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) issued a press release warning of “another record-breaking heat season” for the northern hemisphere this summer, along with the potential of the COVID-19 pandemic amplifying the health risks of the hot weather.

Media outlets picked up the WMO warnings and spread panic stories of mayhem and climate breakdown among the public.

But veteran Swiss meteorologist Jörg Kachelmann, citing models from the ECMWF, doesn’t see any evidence of another “record breaking summer”. He tweeted:

So far Kachelmann has yet to receive an explanation from the WMO.

Like the ECMWF model for the next 45 days shows, the northern hemisphere has extensive cool patches, and so no signs of a “record breaking northern hemisphere summer this year.

Whether it’s the World Health organization (WHO or the WMO, global institutions set up to guide policy are doing a lousy job and are in need of extensive reform, as some leaders have already called for.

    Very good article. I’m going through some of these issues as well.

    I look to this Oregon site (I’m in the State of Washington) for an indication of weather in the coming months.

    Pete Parsons of Oregon

    Pete uses analog years to help with his work along with the ONI, ENSO and SST.
    From his ‘highlights’ {for Oregon}:
    “Overall, expect drier conditions, relative to average, with an elevated
    risk of dry-lightning episodes. Temperatures should be near or slightly above average. Extreme heat is not indicated.”

    At what point do we stop accepting the lies? I’m glad he had backbone to ask.

    Is the WMO closely related to the WHO?

    In May of 2017 there were a few days of temperatures in the 90 degree range late in the month.

    So far, there has been one day at 80 degrees plus Fahrenheit during these Spring days.

    Here we are headed for full tilt towards the sun in about five days from now, the warmth will get here, but it is cooler than normal for this time of year up here way up north south of the border.

    May and June temps for 2020 are below normal in comparison to other years on record.

    The WMO is jonesin’ for a long hot summer.

    They want control of the climates and the climates aren’t cooperating.

    It is an outrage! The embarrassment of being wrong sticks in their craws. lol

    I do expect a warmer than normal autumn. Last year’s was ushered in by a cold wave that knocked the socks off of an expected warm October.
