And FEMA isn't in Norway yet? What's taking them so long. Brown has to go.

If it makes it there it'll be a bunch of rain and clouds with some light breezes and that's it.

Would it even stay together that far north? Is it following some warm water stream or something?

you do have the waters of the Gulf stream just off the coast of Norway. I used to go there all the time and found that it seldom snowed on the coast, go a few miles inland........ boy, then you get it.

I lived in Norway for 15 years and there were lots of them and some extremely severe.

The tail end of andrew hit some years back and it wrecked havoc, putting coastal towns under 3 m of water.

I just did a quick lookup on the ocean currents - I can see how one could make it there now.

You mean like the Gulf Stream?

Except according to global warming models; melting ice caps are supposed to flush the Atlantic with fresh water thus driving the wamer Gulf Stream Waters down which in turn would turn things into global cooling or some such.

They are considered extratropical cyclones at that latitude and lose their hurricane "designation." We've had a few like this in California - they start out as a hurricane, then go way north of Hawaii, then come and hit us as a cut off low.

Goebbels Warming!


The North Sea has risen in temperature to thirty-five degrees. Certain to give the hurricane enough energy to devour the Eurowienees.

Run awayyyyyyyyy!

I thought Dick Cheney had the joystick on a nuclear submarine in the Gulf of Mexico. The nuclear submarine heated the water (intentionally), a Frigate turned on the fan to get the Hurricane started and the VP guided it toward New Orleans.

These kinds of extratropical storms hit Alaska throughout the fall - in fact, we're expecting one to hit us within the next three days. Miserable for hunting moose, too. Lots of rain, the wind blows all the yellowing leaves off the birches, blustery stuff for a while, followed by a sparkling clear hour or so one afternoon, a hard freeze that night, then it snows the next day and winter begins. I have a feeling the Norwegians and the Icelanders go through the same drill this time of year, too.

I am not sure how big a deal this is for iceland...I have been in storms there (winter) where winds were easily 50mph. I would guess any storm surge is the only variable the country is not otherwise already built for, infrastructurally.
