Normal weather coming?

I saw this on Accuweather. It's from Brett Anderson's blog. He's a Canadian Weather Expert. Let's hope he's right.

El Nino is Fading

Wednesday, January 10, 2007

El Nino

It certainly appears that El Nino (the warming of the equatorial Pacific Waters) has already peaked in intensity (probably in December), and is now starting to show a steady decline. Whether that steady decline continues is up for debate, but as of right now, we are probably dealing with a weak to slightly moderate El Nino. It is now anticipated that conditions may get back close to neutral by spring. What does this mean for Canada? Well, I think we may already be seeing the effects of a weakening of El Nino with the current pattern change which is trending toward a building West Coast ridge of high pressure which will certainly help dry out British Columbia. That same ridge is also allowing the very cold air from the far north to spill down through the Prairies, while blocking the moist, Pacific air from invading the country . The southern branch of the jet stream is getting supressed well to the south as the northern, polar jet becomes dominant. Eventually, that cold air will be taking up residence across a large portion of eastern Canada starting next week and probably continuing through at least the end of the month, if not longer. The coldest departures from normal will likely be across Ontario and Quebec the second half of this month, then less so as you progress to the east through the Maritimes and Newfoundland.

Now if we could just add a few more days to Febuary to make up for our lost winter so far we might have some good ice in the southern half of the state after all. grin.gif

With daily highs at or below freezing and over night lows in the single digits, what measurement of added ice could be expected daily the next week for all you wizards on ice making !!

I have noticed many small perms (and some large) hitting the ice in SE Mn the past few days. Worried this cold snap we get will cause all sorts of bad logic and a tremendous amount of pressure all at once.

there is no snow that is coming. As of right now, Alex is at a temp where it feels like -25. Buckel up boys and girls. Winter is finally here.

Looks like the snow on Sunday is going to stay more in the Iowa area. Good news up here for people wanting ice to form, bad for the snowmobilers. smile.giffrown.gif

The currrent temps in the Selkirk region this morning is -35

C, or -31 F, either way you slice it's extremely cold! Ice has not been an issue up here this winter in fact this cold snap might have us using auger extensions for Lake Winnipeg!

Lucky you, its only been a dream down here as of late. Now this is more like it. Just need the wind to die down since it won`t help freeze all the open water we have around here.

    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
    • That's his story and he is sticking to it.
