El Niño And La Niña Unlikely To Appear During First Half Of 2013

The World Meteorological Association (WMO) announced on Monday that the El Niño and La Niña climate patterns are unlikely to show themselves during the first half of 2013. Currently, neutral conditions continue in the tropical Pacific, and model forecasts and expert opinions currently predict the chance of El Niño and La Niña developing during the first half

Triple Threat Produced 2010 Queensland Floods — Ocean Warming, La Niña, Cyclone

  The factors behind the devastating Queensland floods of December 2010 are threefold, according to a new study that found that not only did Cyclone Tasha and La Niña contribute to the inundation, but so did record-high sea-surface temperatures off northern Australia. Original estimates suggested that La Niña and the cyclone were enough to cause

Extreme Weather Just Gettin' Rollin' — Super Extreme Weather Coming

If you follow climate science, you probably are well aware of the fact that even after you turn of the fossil fuel spicket, it takes awhile for the effects of the greenhouse gases to go away. All the more reason to act now, before things get completely out of control. Now, if you aren’t very aware of this issue above, this full post below by Meteorologist Dr. Jeff Masters of WunderBlog should bring the point home:

Thailand Suffers Most Costly Flood in History – 10% of Annual Rice Crop Destroyed

The tropical tourist paradise of Thailand is currently suffering through enormously costly floods, resulting from a “weak” La Niña monsoon season. Following September’s extremely heavy rains — five feet of rain for the month — the monsoon season continues virtually unabated into this month, where it also coincided, last weekend, with the highest tides of the month. It is estimated that 10 % of the nation’s rice crop has been destroyed, so far, costing nearly 4 billion USD, and growing. This will have certain impact on global food prices (driving them higher) and on food security for tens of millions of people.

La Nina is Back says NOAA

As climate experts had already predicted, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has announced that La Niña – which was the cause behind so much of the extreme weather towards the end of 2010 and into 2011 – has re-emerged in the Pacific Ocean and is expected to gradually strengthen and continue into the Northern Hemisphere’s winter.

Extremely Extreme Weather in 2010.. Perhaps Most Extreme on Record

Dr. Jeff Masters, a world-leading meteorologist, just finished a compilation of what he considered 2010’s top 20 extreme weather events. All in all, he considers 2010 to be the most extreme year for weather since records began and, unfortunately, with a good understanding of climate change, he hints at what we could be in for if we don’t turn things around quickly.

Flooding in Brisbane Suburbs

This detailed astronaut photograph illustrates flooding in suburbs of the Brisbane, Australia metropolitan region. The Brisbane area experienced catastrophic flooding following unusually heavy rainfall on January 10, 2011. With surficial soils already saturated from previous rainfall events, eastward-draining surface flow caused the Brisbane River to flood—inundating an estimated 20,000 homes in suburbs of the capital
