Record Cold in Interior Alaska heading into the USA, agriculture at risk
watts Up With That? ^ | May 1, 2013 | Anthony Watts

Posted on 05/02/2013 7:11:12 PM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach

reader “agimarc” writes: As with the Lower 48 states, spring is late and cold here in central Alaska. Fairbanks reported a record low of 2 degrees F above zero Sunday, breaking the previous record of 8 from 1924.

Here in Anchorage, looks like we are around 3 – 4 weeks late with ice of local lakes and snow off the ground. Winter was not particularly hard, but it all changed with a very cold April. And at this point it does not appear things will be warming up soon. So much for manmade global warming due to carbon dioxide emissions.usak_yestlows_i5_points[1]

Yes, have a look at the image at right.

Here is a complete list of record lows for Alaska in the past 7 days, 996 new record lows were set (click low temp and details tab):

And the cold is now creeping into the USA, look at the difference between Denver and Kansas City:

Expect a whole new crop of record lows for the USA, and some serious issues to develop with agriculture in the nation’s breadbasket as a result.

Only 5% Of Corn Crop Planted

This in contrast to last year at this time of 49% of the corn crop planted and the five year average of 31%

The Weather Channel picked the wrong year to name winter storms, the snow and cold may be their Achilles Heel (h/t to Steve Goddard):

This is all just proof that Global Warming is real.

This is directly or indirectly due to our irresponsible carbon footprints I suppose.

The solution: more widespread and higher taxes and of course guilt.

Kansas City ‘was’ 70 degrees.

Now there’s an inch of snow on the ground.

This report confuses me as I live in Southern Oregon and it’s unseasonably hot: mid 80’s all week-weekend. Evening lows in 40’s - not bad.

Des Moines was 80 degrees Tuesday. Daytime high Thursday was 35. Snowing and blowing for more than 24 hours.

Someone call Al Gore and the “experts” on “Global Warming”

Record Setting May Snowfall Likely for parts of Arkansas

Snowfall in May in the State of Arkansas just doesn’t happen, but that could very well change by Friday morning. John Robinson of the National Weather Service in Little Rock went in search of records of a May snowfall in the State, but could not find a report of snow later than April 30th. On April 30th 1903, a trace of snow was reported in Fayetteville and Harrison. The latest measurable snowfall was recorded on April 24th 1910 in Corning, Arkansas. As for Little Rock, the latest snowfall ever recorded was on April 19th 1983. ALL of these records are in jeopardy. Here is a look at some various computer model snowfall projections through Saturday morning.

It all depends on where the jet stream is doing it’s thing.
