It’s Wild How All This Heat Is Breaking Snow Records

Remember how snow would just be a thing of the past? Well, because you, dear reader, refused to unplug every appliance not in use when you went to work, drove a fossil fueled vehicle, and did not have rabbit food for lunch, well, you made the world so warm we get record snow

(Toledo Blade) It’s official: we broke the season snowfall record on Tuesday. But not without a weather-reporting hiccup first.

It was just a tenth of an inch — maybe even a bit more — but some light snow at Toledo Express Airport between 9 and 10 p.m. Tonight officially made this winter the snowiest in Toledo’s recorded history. Combined with 0.4 inch that fell early today, Toledo reached 73.2 inches for the season, beating the 73.1-inch record from 1977-78. More light snow was expected in the region before sunrise, and another significant snowstorm is possible this weekend, forecasters said.

Detroit shattered their snowfall record, and is still getting snow. Many other cities are in the same boat. Some are close to breaking it. Billings, Montana broke their daily record of 8.5 inches Saturday with 8.8 inches. And

(KTVQ) The record (for February snowfall) is 22.4 inches, set in our snowiest winter of 1977-78. Billings sat a 22 inches as of midnight. Records go back to 1934.

That was two days ago. If they haven’t broken it yet, they will. Even Japan is seeing record snowfall. In some places they aren’t going to break the monthly or winter snowfall records, but they are seeing record snow-storms, such as the one Monday in the Missoula Valley (Montana). NYC has seen the 7th snowiest winter for their records. And that’s without the snow that is still to come. Records all around. And even when the records aren’t being broken, many are seeing their average snowfall, rather than seeing snow die out.

And then there’s Chicago

(Chicago Tribune) Temperatures are expected to drop below zero overnight Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night as we again get hit with cold air “in abundance,” in the words of WGN-TV meteorologist Tom Skilling.

That’s in keeping with a winter that has already delivered 22 days of lows below zero, Skilling noted. The 129-year-old record is 25 days below zero, a record that’s clearly in danger.

Skilling says temperatures will average about 22 degrees below normal for the next five days, 20 degrees below normal for the five days after that, and 13 degrees below normal for the five days after that – which gets us into the middle of March.

This has been the third coldest winter in 143 years of recorded Chicago weather history, Skilling said, with about 7 days in 10 since November producing below-normal temperatures. Meteorological winter ends with February, marking the close of what is usually the coldest three months.

Warmists will point out that other places are experiencing warmth. They’re correct. Weather changes, and things happen, just like always. Yet, their own talking points state that we were not supposed to see lots of snow and cold anymore. Hence their unhinged talking points about cold and snow being consistent with a warming world.

    Snow in February in the continental US proves that AGW is a hoax?

    Yet, globally, January was one of warmest months in recorded history.

    Look at the map of Jan 2014 temperatures. The Eastern US, Siberia and Central Canada were cooler than normal. Much of the rest of the global was warmer. Alaska, Western Canada, the Himalayas and Greenland were 4 or 5 degrees above the average. As was the Arctic (not measured in this database). The average global temperature is the temperature averaged over the entire globe (get it?), not just Detroit.

    But, but, a guy in England said there would be no more snow! Well, the guy in England was wrong, wasn’t he.

    Pirate: You make it pretty clear that you understand some of the science, yet you persist in spreading these misleading memes. Why?

    “Recorded history”, in this case, means about 135 years. With no comparable data for the other 4.5 billion, it doesn’t take a math major (well, for some it does) to figure out that means nothing.

  3. John says:

    So teach sounds like climate change to me sounds like some of that extreme weather that some of those warmists like the US Navy warned us might happen. Care to give us YOUR prediction on the planets average temp this year? Wasn’t 2012 supposed to be that the coldists were predicting the beginning of global cooling ?

  4. John says:

    Teach you do realize that CA has had to severely restrict its water to farmers because of the lack of snow don’t you?

  5. Jl says:

    John, you do realize that “global warming” was supposed to warm the atmosphere, which would then allow it to hold more moisture, which would cause more precipitation, didn’t you? But I guess that was before things began to fall apart so now it causes more precipitation and less precipitation.

  6. Jeffery says:


    So you won’t be satisfied until we have thermometer data for the past 4.5 billion years? Got it.

    Yes, for certain the highest since instrumental records were kept. Most likely the highest since the evolution of human civilizations started some 10,000 years ago, and certainly higher than the last ice age that started some 100,000 years ago. So the Earth is warmer now than it’s been in the past 100,000 years and it’s still warming.

    The Earth will survive, man the species will survive (but many people will suffer) but many other species will perish.

  7. Dana says:

    ‘Twas 5º F at my humble abode when I left for work this morning — at 0540 — so we probably tied the record low of 4º for this date before the sun was up fully. And the Weather Channel is telling me to expect a low of -3º F tonight, which would break the record by several degrees.

    And now we’re hearing that we might get 6 to 10 inches of snow this weekend. The only problem that I see with global warming is that it hasn’t warmed up enough yet!

    And, so, your “solution” is to have people suffer today, by making them poorer via carbon consumption fees which provide them with nothing but take more money out of their pockets, or by making us depend upon energy technologies which are unable to provide consistent power?

    JOHN IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!
    Meanwhile, it sure as shoot wasn’t the warmest January (in recorded history) in my neck of the woods.

    “Meanwhile, it sure as shoot wasn’t the warmest January (in recorded history) in my neck of the woods.”

    And that’s the point. Your neck of the woods likely accounts for 0.1% of the Earth’s surface. Climate scientists measure the temperature over most of the Earth’s surface, not just in your neck of the woods.

  11. Trish Mac says:

    Hey fun boy, it’s like every OTHER year, UNpredicted. Not for the past 50 years, have the climatologists gotten it right. They claim to know it will be a quiet/busy/horrific winter/summer/hurricane season/tornado season. And get it wrong all the time. BECAUSE there is NO consensus. By all the graphs, charts, radar. They don’t know. And we can’t believe anyone who claims to know the future either. No pattern is static. No winter/Spring/Summer/Fall is set in stone. Hence, my true belief in Climate Change, not warming or cooling.

  12. Jl says:

    Jeffery, nice try at deflection but as usual it didn’t work. You said “Jan. one of warmest months in recorded history.” I said, correctly, that that only means 135 years, which means nothing. And for all your blathering, you didn’t refute what I said. Those specific records are 135 years old, sorry. Also, correct- I wouldn’t believe that “the warmest on record” would have any relevancy unless we knew the total record. Is there a problem with that logic, J? The more factual an correct way to say it would be: “The 4th warmest Jan. ( or whatever) in the last 135 years. This obviously doesn’t mean much because the probability of a previous warmer January in the last 4billion years is thousands of times higher than you winning the Powerball lottery.” There, fixed your sentence for you.

  13. Jeffery says:


    “Jeffery, you’re absolutely correct again, my trying to compare recent history to the full 4+ billion years of Earth’s history is a red herring, since what’s relevant is human civilization, which is hardly even 10,000 years old.”

    There, fixed your sentence for you.

  14. Jeffery says:

    Hey fun girl, so the new theory you believe in is that the average global temperature goes up and down by a degree Celsius over 100 year intervals and that the proxy temperature records have not been able to detect them.
