Arctic Air to Bring Chilly Weather Back to W. Canada
Expanding amounts of arctic air across northern and central Canada are soon to make a return to Western Canada during the next few days and bring an end to the spring-like temperatures of the recent couple of weeks. The dry pattern is also expected to continue for most areas.[Read Full Blog Post]

Forecasts for late week show from .5-.75 inch precipitation for the southwest Plains including Dodge City, Enid, Guymon and Amarillo. My guess is that the precip would be quite welcome.

Mild, Dry Weather Regime Well-Established in W. Canada
Winter is being kind to Western Canada as all of the cold weather remains across northeastern and eastern Canada. Pacific air has made it over the Rockies and sent temperatures to well-above-normal levels for most areas, but is mostly lacking precipitation.[Read Full Blog Post]

Good info on our ever changing weather. One question though, How does the WMO know what the temp was 500 yrs ago ?
Posted by GWL 61 at 5:06PM CST 01/16/15
Many different studies incorporating both physical information such as tree ring data and computer modeling have been used to reach the conclusion that Europe temperatures in 2014 were the warmest in at least the past 500 years. The 500-year benchmark reference would not have been published had there not been repeated findings to support that reference.

Good science eliminates outside factors. Tree growth is highly influenced by rainfall amounts and timing. Computer modeling is influenced by whatever data someone considers appropriate.

Then why have we been told that there has been a 19 year hiatus on warming. The earth hasn't warmed since 1996. We're told scientists who believe in global warming are struggling to explain this phenomena. Somebody is lying.
Posted by JEFF RIDDER at 6:37PM CST 01/19/15
The notion that the earth has not warmed since the mid-1990s was out there about 3 years ago. Since then, this opinion has been debunked by research done by scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. The increase in global temperatures has slowed, but the oceans have taken up heat at a faster rate since the turn of the century. Over 90 percent of the overall extra heat goes into the oceans, with only about 2 percent heating the Earth's atmosphere. The myth of the "pause" is based on ignoring 98 percent of global warming and focusing exclusively on the one bit that's slowed.

I heard from a right wing talk host show that scientists are blaming arctic melt from an unusual amount of volcanoes being closer to the surface then normal. Any validity to this one? I don't think the GOP politicians deny the planet is warming, they just don't want the fossil fuel industry to be blamed, after all who would fund their campaigns?
