  • Scorching ‘heat dome’ over Middle East sees temperatures soar to 165°F in Iran

    Iran is buckling under the pressure of a massive heatwave passing across the Middle East, with temperatures soaring to nearly 70°C. Scorching heat levels of 50°C have already paralyzed nearby Iraq, where officials were forced to call a four-day public holiday because it was too hot to work. But the word “hot” has taken on an entirely new meaning in Iran’s city of Bandar Mahshahr, where it was claimed that the city’s heat index, or “feels-like temperature”, was among the highest ever recorded. The heat index was recorded by a group of astonished weather experts, who predict the country could...

    Wherever you live or happen to travel to, never complain about the heat and humidity again. In the city of Bandar Mahshahr (population of about 110,000 as of 2010), the air felt like a searing 165 degrees (74 Celsius) today factoring in the humidity. Although there are no official records of heat indices, this is second highest level we have ever seen reported.

    All last week, global warming-obsessed media were rife with reports about record-breaking heat. Problem is, according to the National Climatic Data Center, and marvelously reported by the Hockey Schtick Sunday, almost no temperature records were actually broken: [T]he NOAA database of all-time Max Temperature...shows that there were no records broken on July 17, July 18, July 19, or July 20th. A total of 4 stations broke records on July 21, 20 on July 22, and 10 on July 23, 2011. That's right. There were only 34 new all-time daily temperature records set during last week's "record-breaking heat." (Snip) As you

    Here's the headline: "Shock Forecast: NOAA Predicts Heat Index of 116 in Washington Friday." Not temperature. So the arbitrary, "You're gonna feel like it's 116," but let me ask you, how many of you were anywhere where it was 116 in the last few years, months, to know what 116 feels like? Why not just report the temperature of what it's gonna be? It's gonna be 100 degrees, it's gonna be 103. That happens every summer in Washington. And now it's gonna be 116! It's gonna be deadly hot, unprecedented heat, 116 heat index. More manipulation. You wait. What's predictably...
  • Western Heat to Build East, Storms Lead the WAAY First

    Through much of the month of July a large upper level ridge held strong from Texas northwestward through much of the western U.S. providing for a hot month while a trough held tight bringing cooler and wetter than normal conditions to the East. A flip in the pattern will take place through this week into the start of next allowing the ridge to switch with the trough. This means it will cool off in the West and heat up in the East. 90s will be the rule again for much of the southeastern fourth of the nation with 100s building...
