Bummer: Snow Expected On First Day Of Spring In Northeast

Obviously, this can only be caused by “climate change”

(UK Daily Mail/AP) Warmer weather has melted much of the snow in Boston, but some remnants of the snowiest winter in the city’s history refuse to leave.

One snow farm in Boston was photographed on Wednesday, now turned to a gross shade of grey with dirt and debris. According to Think Progress, the city will have spent some $50million hauling snow to farms like this at the end of the season. (Yes, the AP is actually citing Think Progress)

But it looks like winter isn’t quite over yet for Bostonians – or much of the East Coast. More snow is expected to hit the city on Friday, ironically timed for the first day of spring.

The snow system is expected to start falling over the northern Appalachians and southern Pennsylvania on Thursday night before reaching New York and southern New England on Friday.

New York City will see its first flakes around 9am on Friday and snow will continue to fall throughout the day – covering the city with two inches in total.

The snow is unlikely to settle, however, thanks to warmer ground temperatures.

Nevertheless, the snow will likely hamper travel and create a headache of a commute on Friday,’ John Homenuk of New York Metro Weather warned. ‘Roads will be slick and travel will be hazardous when snow is falling. Be sure to leave extra time and bring your winter jacket.’

It must be “climate change”, right? Let’s go to the Think Progress article cited

Scientists expect more of these extremely snowy winters for Boston and the Northeastern United States in the years to come, as sea surface temperatures get warmer and the atmosphere is able to hold more moisture. Both those predicted characteristics are driven by human-made greenhouse gas emissions, which cause climate change.

And there you have it: cold and snow caused by too much heat.

More snow may seem counter-intuitive to a global warming scenario. But as climatologist Ilissa Ocko explained, more snow can actually happen with a warmer ocean and atmosphere. A warmer ocean creates more water vapor, and a warmer atmosphere is able to hold more moisture. The atmosphere absorbs the water vapor, and when it can no longer hold the moisture, it forms precipitation. When it’s below freezing, the precipitation is generally snow.

So, should that mean that we have less snow and cold during cool periods? Or, does this mean that ice ages are actually very, very hot? The Cult of Climastrology (CoC) has created a non-falsifiable set of beliefs to protect their “science”. Nothing can seemingly ever disprove their beliefs, and, in this way, they can find a way to blame everything on “climate change”.

Think Progress is not alone. There are many, many news outlets blaming the heavy Boston snow on “climate change”, such as the Kansas City Star, Boston Globe (subscription), and the Washington Post. Sadly, there are more than enough fools who’ll believe this claptrap.

    So 1% of the planet is extra cold and 98% extra hot
    Thanks for letting that one in
    Thus is like that
    It snowed in Abu Dhabi post

    If the oceans are warming and atmosphere is holding more moisture then more snow will likely come next year.
    If the snow is the result of the El Nino that we had this year then normal snow likely will next year.

    If it is cold next year and not mild or extra snowy, then it is likely because the earth is in a cold cycle and we are returning to the winters seen in the 1960’s

    In 1998 the warm year was blamed on Climate Change when any one in the know at the time knew it was El Nino.
    Now warmers blame El Nino for that year because it now suits them to help explain the lack of warming or slowing of warming since.

    We’re s’posed to get 3 to 5 inches of snow here, starting around 6 AM. The equinox itself is at 6:45 PM, so I assume that that is when the snow will end.

    Of course these clowns “forget” to mention that the N.E. is colder than usual, which means…more snow.

    In 1998 the warm year was blamed on Climate Change when any one in the know at the time knew it was El Nino.

    El Nino and La Nina are not independent of global warming since a large part of the accumulating heat goes into the oceans.

    Now warmers blame El Nino for that year because it now suits them to help explain the lack of warming or slowing of warming since.

    So which is it? Was the 1999 El Nino a one year warming independent of global warming or is it part of global warming that you can cherrypick as the start point of when the climate stood still?

    Here’s a map of global warming this winter.

    Sorry, J, not true. The NCDC doesn’t have data from more 50% of “reporting” stations, so they “infill” with what their best guess would be for the data. There’s almost no data from Antarctica, Greenland or Africa. Satellites, which cover more area, show no such thing as “warmest winter ever”. (Which of course if somehow true, would only mean since 1880. And wouldn’y prove why it’s allegedly warming. (from Real Science)

  7. Dana says:

    It’s the first day of spring — though the equinox is still 2:35 away — and we have three inches of new snow at the plant, and it’s still snowing.

    This comment or reply was in my junk folder so I did not notice until now.

    The link you sent me is from NOAA PRIOR to Satalite data whick cools things down.
    Notice no temperatures are mentioned once again. If they did then after the satellite data was added the temperatures mentioned would then be incorrect.

    My point was in the actual year 1998, Climate promoters blamed the warm year as a result of AGW when likely it was the fault of El Nino.
    ( I remember this)

    El Nino’s helped warm the earth long before AGW and still is. Now we are in 2014-15 and again AGW is blamed for warming without mentioning it is an El Nino year. Notice also how the headlines “2014 is the warmest year on record, ” has changed to warmest “January and Febuary” now all the data is in. Cherry picking months (and years) is the hallmark of NOAA, not skeptics.
