At least in terms of the sunset time.
Monday’s sunset (official for Cleveland NWS) is 4:59 P.M. That’s one minute later than the earliest sunset time of 4:58 P.M. The difference is really not noticeable right now, but you may see a little difference by the end of the month, and even more by the end of January.
Half sunny, half snowy this morning. It depends on where you live:
We have bookend storm systems today… I’m watching our FOX sister station KCPQ-13 in Seattle this morning as they anticipate strong winds later today. I have a lifelong friend who lives in Seattle. I’m sure I will hear from him about the big storm and high winds they expect today and tonight.
Did “global warming” have anything to do with Buffalo’s lake-effect blast last week? Thanks to Dr. Roy Spencer, let’s take a look at a reasonable, fact-centered essay:
“Except that the Great Lakes were unusually cold this year, after near record cold last winter. Then, an even more unusual cold blast of air that started over eastern Siberia made it’s way to the U.S. and the cooler lake waters were not enough to depress the lake effect snow machine: over 6 feet of snow has fallen south and east of downtown Buffalo this week.
“So, in what universe does a cold winter, a cool summer, cold lake water, and an unusually cold fall air mass result from global warming?
“Not in our universe.
“The computerized climate models that provide the basis for climate change proclamations produce less snow with warming. Yes, a warmer world has more water vapor in the atmosphere to feed snowstorms, but you need atmospheric circulations driven by large-scale temperature contrasts to form low pressure systems. And since the equator-to-pole temperature contrast has decreased in recent decades, we should be seeing less storminess.”
