Global warming in action.
Al Gore is very upset.
80+ degrees here today but it's not really unusual
Crap! Snow! Just when "An Incoherent Spoof" was getting ready to hit the DVD market. al-Gore has to be really PO'd.
Snow in the summer.
Another inconvenient truth.
Amen just hope we dont have to make up the difference this winter.
It would typically snow sometime around the first week of September. And it would snow the second week of June. And many points in between.
Comes with the altitude. But in most cases, I could sweep the snow off the deck with a broom, it was so dry.
I'm glad this thread isn't about Tony Snow!
are we doomed yet?
Al Gore now says that SUVs now cause global cooling ?
It is so confusing.
Telling us where this is might have helped... it makes a difference :~)
Guessin from the 'topic' it's in Colorado? How high?
"are we doomed yet?"
[but we do need more cowbell]
I will research the elevation, as I do not know exactly. Tree line often is 12,000 so this may be nearer 9,000 feet.
Well, that's pretty high :~) I'm guessing it's not a second ice age yet :~)
Somebody at work said we are supposed to have an early Fall and a long Winter... suppose that as good as any experts prediction.
Yes, I'd sure like to know where it is, too. It would really help.
Likely the snow will melt soon.
This snow will help with fire dangers from the bark beetles and it will help a little with water supplies.
No new ice age yet.
That's good. Here in Western WA it's starting to feel like fall, getting down near 40 at night in the lowlands... it might be close to freezing in the mountains some nights.
RMNP likely got some too.
The 14,000 foot peaks can receive snow every month. Rarely does it stay even there long in the summer.
Above 12,000 feet ( generally tree line ) it is often freezing at night now. But it warms up nicely until Ocober.
C'mon. Don't you know that unusual cold weather is just a symptom of overall global warming? At least that's what all the environmental wackos...er, I mean scientists, have said.
Wow, in MI? It was 80+ here today too.
Yeah but 80 isn't all that unusual for early september. Last night while watching the weather they listed the record high for this date as 103 back in 1978. The record low was 38.
I haven't seen 38 since I left OH, apart from one night last year when I went back up there briefly.
Happens occasionally in FL...just wait a few years.
Not this far south, it doesn't, only in the north and then only for a short time.
Where in FL are you?
I currently live in the foothills west of Denver at 8500 feet. August was unusually cool, and we had snow just up the road today! We have also had a very wet summer- which has been great.
I'm near Melbourne, close to what's considered the border of central and south FL.
Mostly...you're right. But look at these records:
The low on there was 49, which we've seen a fwe times, it's uncommon though, although I'd still take 49 over Ohio's 20.
I was just pointing out the RECORD lows. Meaning that occasionally it can get MUCH colder. Look at Jan 19 1977!!
I already have all of my ski trips planned. Bring on the snow!
I walk, ride or jog every morning in a nearby park (New Jersey). It has a brook that feeds a very large lake that runs the length of the park. The migrating geese love the lake. They were four weeks early this year.
This is certainly not unusual in Colorado. Pike's Peak area took snow to probably the 10K level, I was in the Collegiate Peaks and it snowed to around the 12K level.
I have seen it snow on 4th of July and in mid-August. One year, I got 4" of snow at my house on Jun 28. No big deal but it does look like a long and white winter. The bears are very aggressive right now and eating like there's a long nap ahead.
MIAMI'S FIRST SNOWFALL On January 19, 1977, Old Man Winter paid an unwelcomed visit to residents of Miami, Florida (yes, Florida, not Ohio) and brought along a surprise gift -- snow! For the first time in the history of the extreme south of Florida, snow danced through the air and dusted the ground briefly. A quarter century later, the scene has not been repeated.
I don't know about this area, but GW suggests odd weather patterns and not just hotter weather everywhere. And there's nothing crazy about suggesting GW is real. The issue is whether it's caused by the evil earth-hating humans and not the sun.
Cold Temperatures and Snow Flurries in East-Central Florida
January 24, 2003
An arctic air mass roared into central Florida early Friday morning (Jan. 24, 2003) and resulted in widespread readings in the 20s (except for locations near the coast where low/mid 30s occurred). The strong northerly winds that ushered in the frigid air produced wind chill readings in the teens across much of the area. These winds also brought moisture off of the Atlantic late Friday morning and into the early afternoon, resulting in snow flurries along the coastline of Brevard and Volusia counties. The last time there have been reports of snow flurries across east central Florida was during the devastating Christmas freeze event in 1989.
