Record cold.


Not even halfway through the month, Yellowknife has already broken records 3 times
Katherine Barton - CBC News

September 14, 2018


According to Environment Canada, Yellowknife has already broken cold records for three days, and it's not even halfway through September.

Why Yellowknife's summer was a bummer
June rainfall breaks records in Yellowknife
On Sept. 9, a record low of –2 C was reached, beating the old record of –1.1 C set in 2004.

Two days later, on Sept. 11, another record low was hit at –2 C, beating the record of –1.7 C in 1972. That day also broke another record for the coldest daytime temperature of 3.2 C, beating the 1970 record of 5 C.

Sept. 12 also set a record low daytime high of 2.6 C, beating 3.3 C set way back in 1964.

CBC North meteorologist Ashley Brauweiler said it's all about the jet stream — that conveyor belt of winds that moves weather systems around the world.

"The jet stream split and a cold pocket of air from the Arctic extended further south," she said. "We've been sitting like that for most of September."

Brauweiler said that pattern doesn't look like it's going to change much over the next two weeks.

The normal maximum temperature for this time of year is 10 C, while the minimum is 4 C. On Thursday the average temperature sat at 4 C, and Friday is looking at a high of 3 C and snow.

"I pulled out my jacket a little earlier than normal," Brauweiler laughed. "I had to part with my flip-flops sooner than I wanted to."

Cold front follows dismal summer
This chilly September follows a dismal summer in the N.W.T. capital. June broke records for rainfall, and many people were lamenting the summer that wasn't. Brauweiler said the jet stream was weaker than usual this summer, which means weather patterns didn't move as much.

At least Yellowknife isn't the only part of Canada dealing with an early winter; Alberta got a dumping of snow this week. There were snowfall warnings in effect for Grande Prairie, Grande Cache and Jasper.

That province has the N.W.T. to thank.

Ugh: Alberta hunkers down for September snowstorm
September snowstorm could dump 15 cm on parts of Alberta
Brauweiler said the system was caused by Arctic air from the N.W.T. that headed south, making for late summer snow and frigid temperatures in Alberta.

But it's not all bad news.

"The berries have been good," Brauweiler offered. "The frost makes them sweeter!"

Yep - climate change is a bastard isn't it?



Meanwhile:


Hot October - temperature hits record 89 in Cleveland

That's great for Cleveland.

I hope you're ready for expensive food.

You're losing the argument. For every odd cold spell there is a hot spell that more than cancels it out. Climate change means more weather extremes; just as predicted. Every time you post an extreme you prove climate change is actually happening. BTW - there is another possible category 4 hurricane heading for the US.

Nothing cancels out the millions upon millions of tonnes of food lost to snow in western Canada.

Random internet globul warming experts can't loose
Hot or cold weather are all caused by globul warming


And I'll bet that our local Fakebook expert can find a meme to prove it!

Adjust those temps ASAP!


They did that in New York State last year. Record breaking cold weather suddenly weren't record breaking at all, in fact it was warmer than usual after the Alarmists tampered with the actual data. And now that last year's winter is over, the fake data stands as fact to back up their ideology.

And random internet morons like yourself can't disprove multiple extremes of climate in the last few decades. Two Category 4 hurricanes hitting the US so far in 2018 and three last year? Go ahead, say that five once-in-a-hundred year storms in two years is normal.

Look out your f-cking window and tell me why you are lying to yourself.

Is what you see normal?

No - and that is exactly the point. Have you figured it out yet? Once again, thanks for being so easy to refute.

In medieval Europe, witches were blamed for weather woes.

Nowadays, litter and motor vehicles are blamed for weather woes.

Five hundred years from now and people will be looking at today's Global Warmists in the same way as we today look at those people of the medieval times who thought bad weather was caused by witches.

And whenever a Warmist tells you that hurricanes have increased in number in recent years and it's all down to Global Warming, just repeat this to them from the UN Climate Panel:

"Current datasets indicate no significant observed trends in global tropical cyclone frequency over the past century."

For the United States, the trend of all land-falling hurricanes has been falling since 1900, as has that of major hurricanes. In the 51 years from 1915, Florida and the Atlantic coast were hit by 19 major hurricanes. In the 51 years to 2016, just seven. In the last 11 years, only two hurricanes greater than category 3 hit the continental USA — a record low since 1900. From 1915 to 1926, 12 hit.

Global warming sets records snows and cold?

Please explain.

We're the agricultural states of emergency lifted in Alberta today?

When there is a food crisis of this scale from cold you look pretty pretty silly standing there with your dick in the wind as you declare how amazing you look in the new clothes you are wearing.

You get a new bag or a new bong or both? Notice the collective never corrects another member of the collective.


Pete, were you not doing a chicken little thing a bit ago promoting a 60% loss of crops?? Wrong again it seems. You get that part tight every time you make a post, lol.

The harvest problems are particularly acute in central and northern areas of the grain belt and farmers in those regions should see harvest windows appear.
“This will be an opportunity for farmers who are delayed … they will be able to do that over the next seven days,” Hasell said.

What good are windows if your crop is green, flattened or soaked?

What grades will come off.

No.1 Red Spring?
