Ski Resorts Start Snow Making

Record lows and widespread lows in the 20’s on Friday allowed some New England ski resorts to start snow making. While it does seem to be just an opportunity to break out the guns and give them a test, it could be a sign of things to come this winter. “Several locations from upstate New York to northern Maine set record lows this morning as an unusually early taste of cold weather clipped the region.” [...]

Wild GPS Readings at Bardarbunga

I don’t know if anything significant is about to happen, but there have been wild GPS readings at Bardarbunga over the last several hours. It is fluctuating as wildly as I’ve seen it yet. Is there something going on in Iceland? Is it stormy, window, or anything like that? I don’t know what would make the GPS start recording wild changes in the ground level. Here is a screenshot I grabbed showing the recent fluctuations. The light gray color shows momentary deviations. Red is a 30 minute average and blue is a 180 minute average. [...]

Bardarbunga Subsidence Continues

The Bardarbunga subsidence continues steadily. The rate of subsidence is approximately 0.5 meters every 36 hours. As of the time this post is being written, the subsidence for the last 24 hours was approximately 0.5 meters. Large quakes continue with a magnitude 5.1 quake occurring in the last hour or two. The longer the subsidence continues the more likely the caldera will collapse. Stay tuned for additional updates. [...]

Bardarbunga Eruption

The Bardarbunga eruption taking place in Iceland has been going on for weeks now. I was reading that at one point something like 200 cubic meters of magma was being release every second. The volcanic system has plenty of magma left to be released and now there is the potential danger of a massive explosion. Since the eruption started, the caldera has fallen over 80 feet. It is feared that the caldera will eventually collapse, glacier melt would make its way into the caldera, and we would see a massive explosion. This explosion could potentially be larger than any we’ve seen in modern times. [...]

Welcome to the NEW ClimatePatrol.com

I want to welcome everyone to the new ClimatePatrol.com. I am still working on the site and making changes/tweaks. I wanted everyone to be able to start using the features of this site while I finish moving content over from the old site. I have moved over all of the discussions and replies. If you were to browser the categories right now you would notice that you only see post titles and no excerpts. Unfortunately I have to go through one by one and manually add in excerpts. That will take time. I will likely work on those starting with the most recent posts and working backwards. There are over 5,000 to edit. [...]

ClimatePatrol Version 3.0

A new version of the website is coming very soon. I’d love to say that I am working on upgrades to the forum software but I am not. I am moving the site to Wordpress. It will be easier to keep the site up to date. I am nearly done getting the layout to look the way I want it. Once I have finished the layout I will create accounts on the new site for people who have posted on the current site. The system will email temporary passwords. Hang on to those for when the site goes live. I will also be writing a script to import all the posts into the new site. That is going to be a bit of a project but hopefully it won’t take more than a week or two to complete. [...]

Where has the heat gone?

Okay I know the heat is out west but people in my area have to be wondering what is going on. First we have the winter that never seems to end. And now we have a summer that really isn’t much of a summer. So far for the month of July we have had 10 days where high temps failed to reach 80 degrees. Of the other 11 days we hit 80-81 degrees 6 times. Of the 21 days in the month we have been below normal 19 days. The two days that finished above normal we were at 1 and 2 degrees above normal. So far this year we have had ZERO 90 degree days. It is possible we may hit 90 today but then a big cool down comes starting tomorrow. [...]

Big patch of Blacktop road has melted in Yellowstone

“Firehole Lake Drive in Yellowstone National Park has been temporarily closed due to a damaged road surface. Extreme heat from surrounding thermal areas has caused thick oil to bubble to the surface, damaging the blacktop and creating unsafe driving conditions on the popular, scenic road, located off the Grand Loop Road halfway between Old Faithful and Madison Junction in the park’s Lower Geyser Basin.” [...]

Hurricane Sandy and Cyclone Evan, Weather Warfare?

I have been doing quite a lot of research into weather modification (manipulation of weather for military purposes) and I would like to invite people to read the articles provided. I have reason to believe that Hurricane Sandy and Cyclone Evan may have been manufactured. Take some time to read what I have written. Hopefully it will persuade people to turn their attention to this cause. [...]
