It's only 9:54 a.m. here, and the heat index is already 105°F.

Its business as usual for you southern states. But up here its not. The local sports talk show host is such an idiot when it comes to telling dumb jokes. All last night I had to listen to stupid jokes like its hot enough to fry an egg on your car. I mean, spare me. Only reason I dont call him a dim whit like some truck driver did the other night is I win alot of free restaurant gifts on there. He asks a trivia every night. You get it right and you wiin the prize. I won a $50 gift certificate for a real expensive restaurant in Pittsford NY. Where the Bills practice. I am known on there as Buffalo Rick. You can only win once a month. Its high 90's again today. Over 100 yesterday for the first time in a long time.

I'd love to see Idaho. Maybe pick up some potatoes while I'm there. Clear off a corner of the couch for me.

Interestingly enough, it's 102° in the Bronx right now, but the heat index is only 107°. So it's hotter air temperature-wise than it is here, but our heat index is higher (right now it's 110°). Yay for excessive humidity!!

:rolleyes:<_<

Yeah...humidity is non existent here, unless it's about to rain. It's now 72, the high is supposed to be 84 today. You'd better hurry though, tomorrow's high is supposed to be 90, Sunday's is 100.

I guess I had better mow the lawn, but I just don't wanna. ;)

We're actually going on vacation on Wednesday. We're going to go up to Northern Idaho, which believe it or not, I've NEVER seen. I haven't been up near the Canadian border in Idaho. We'll be gone for four days, exploring the area. I don't know what the weather will be like up there.... :D

Fortunately here in sunny Italy it's ... raining and cooling off.

My sis is telling me it's pretty bad both in Ohio and New York. I told her to look for huge malls with diners and swimming pools to spend the whole day ... B)

I'm flying over to visit you then! :veryhot: Expected heat index of 114 here in VA today. It's so hot here that they are closing pools because the water temp in the pools is in the 90s :o

Weather channel is predicting heat index of up to 109 today :veryhot: Went out at 8:30 intending to run, but ended up walking instead. Terrible air quality today. Maybe I'll try again later if we can get some rain to cool things off a bit.

Virginia,

In Palm Springs, they literally put blocks of ICE into the pools to cool them down when it's hot. That's what they should be doing there! ;)

The high here today was 103, unless it's still going up. I went swimming. ;)

Some amazing weather lately:

http://www.accuweath...ss-the-nort.asp

"New York City shattered an October snow record with highest snow totals elsewhere across the Northeast topping 2 feet.

An unprecedented (for October) 2.9 inches of snow was measured in New York City's Central Park on Saturday.

Since snowfall records began in 1869, Central Park has never received an inch of snow on any given October day.

The last time that Central Park recorded measurable snow was on Oct. 21, 1952 when 0.5 of an inch fell. Prior to that, 0.8 of an inch fell on Oct. 30, 1925. La Guardia and JFK International airports both set October snow records as well with 1.7 and 1.5 inches, respectively.

Other October Snow Records Smashed

Hartford, Conn., was buried by 12.3 inches of snow, shattering the record for the most snow ever received on an October day. The previous record was 1.7 inches set on Oct. 10, 1979.

An all-time snowfall record for any day in October was set in Worcester, Mass., with 11.4 inches of snow. The old record was 7.5 inches set on Oct. 10, 1979.

Newark, N.J., set a daily snow record with 5.2 inches of snow on Saturday. This will also go down in the record book as the greatest snow on any given day during the month of October. Previously, Newark had not received an inch of snow in October.

Daily Snowfall Records Set

Concord, N.H., was blanketed by 13.6 inches of snow, breaking the old daily record of 0.2 of an inch set back in 1952.

Albany, N.Y., set a daily snow record with 3.8 inches of snow. The previous record was 0.4 of an inch set back in 2000.

Another daily snow record was set in Pittsburgh, Pa., on Saturday when 1.6 inches fell. The previous record was 0.6 of an inch from 2008.

Philadelphia got 0.3 of an inch of snow, breaking the old record of a trace for the date set way back in 1902. Likewise, Wilmington, Del., had 0.3 of an inch, surpassing the trace the city got in 2002.

The nation's capital got a dusting of snow that set a new record. The 0.6 of an inch that fell on Saturday was unprecedented. Previously, Washington, D.C., had never received snow on Oct. 29...."

And now we're getting it here. Pouring rain all day, then late this afternoon the snow started. About 4 inches down now. Very wet and heavy. 0 deg. (32) Was not in the forecast.

Not impressed.

APNewsbreak: Panel says wild weather worsens

http://news.yahoo.co...-084540799.html

"WASHINGTON (AP) — Freakish weather disasters — from the sudden October snowstorm in the Northeast U.S. to the record floods in Thailand — are striking more often. And global warming is likely to spawn more similar weather extremes at a huge cost, says a draft summary of an international climate report obtained by The Associated Press.

The final draft of the report from a panel of the world's top climate scientists paints a wild future for a world already weary of weather catastrophes costing billions of dollars. The report says costs will rise and perhaps some locations will become "increasingly marginal as places to live."

The report from the Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will be issued in a few weeks, after a meeting in Uganda. It says there is at least a 2-in-3 probability that climate extremes have already worsened because of man-made greenhouse gases.

This marks a change in climate science from focusing on subtle changes in daily average temperatures to concentrating on the harder-to-analyze freak events that grab headlines, cause economic damage and kill people. The most recent bizarre weather extreme, the pre-Halloween snowstorm, is typical of the damage climate scientists warn will occur — but it's not typical of the events they tie to global warming.

"The extremes are a really noticeable aspect of climate change," said Jerry Meehl, senior scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. "I think people realize that the extremes are where we are going to see a lot of the impacts of climate change."

The snow-bearing Nor'easter cannot be blamed on climate change and probably isn't the type of storm that will increase with global warming, four meteorologists and climate scientists said. They agree more study is needed. But experts on extreme storms have focused more closely on the increasing numbers of super-heavy rainstorms, not snow, NASA climate scientist Gavin Schmidt said.

The opposite kind of disaster — the drought in Texas and the Southwest U.S. — is also the type of event scientists are saying will happen more often as the world warms, said Schmidt and Meehl, who reviewed part of the climate panel report. No studies have specifically tied global warming to the drought, but it is consistent with computer models that indicate current climate trends will worsen existing droughts, Meehl said.

Studies also have predicted more intense monsoons with climate change. Warmer air can hold more water and puts more energy into weather systems, changing the dynamics of storms and where and how they hit.

Thailand is now coping with massive flooding from monsoonal rains that illustrate how climate is also interconnected with other manmade issues such as population and urban development, river management and sinking lands, Schmidt said. In fact, the report says that "for some climate extremes in many regions, the main driver for future increases in losses will be socioeconomic in nature" rather than greenhouse gases.

There's an 80 percent chance that the killer Russian heat wave of 2010 wouldn't have happened without the added push of global warming, according to a study published last week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

So while in the past the climate change panel, formed by the United Nations and World Meteorological Organization, has discussed extreme events in snippets in its report, this time the scientists are putting them all together. The report, which needs approval by diplomats at the mid-November meeting, tries to measure the confidence scientists have in their assessment of climate extremes both future and past.

Chris Field, one of the leaders of the climate change panel, said he and other authors won't comment because the report still is subject to change. The summary chapter of the report didn't detail which regions of the world might suffer extremes so severe as to leave them marginally habitable.

The report does say scientists are "virtually certain" — 99 percent — that the world will have more extreme spells of heat and fewer of cold. Heat waves could peak as much as 5 degrees hotter by mid-century and even 9 degrees hotter by the end of the century.

Weather Underground meteorology director Jeff Masters, who wasn't involved in the study, said in the United States from June to August this year, blistering heat set 2,703 daily high temperature records, compared with only 300 cold records during that period, making it the hottest summer in the U.S. since the Dust Bowl of 1936.

By the end of the century, the intense, single-day, heavy rainstorms that now typically happen only once every 20 years are likely to happen about twice a decade, the report says.

The report said hurricanes and other tropical cyclones — like 2005's Katrina — are likely to get stronger in wind speed, but won't increase in number and may actually decrease. Massachusetts Institute of Technology meteorology professor Kerry Emanuel, who studies climate's effects on hurricanes, disagrees and believes more of these intense storms will occur.

And global warming isn't the sole villain in future climate disasters, the climate report says. An even bigger problem will be the number of people — especially the poor — who live in harm's way.

University of Victoria climate scientist Andrew Weaver, who wasn't among the authors, said the report was written to be "so bland" that it may not matter to world leaders.

But Masters said the basics of the report seem to be proven true by what's happening every day. "In the U.S., this has been the weirdest weather year we've had for my 30 years, hands down. Certainly this October snowstorm fits in with it.""

Snow slows down traffic in Belgrade
1355662030515179bc2d20a802888942_v4big.j

BELGRADE -- Spring snow that has been falling overnight and during the morning in Belgrade slowed down traffic, but no traffic jams have been reported.

The Beograd Put public company said its teams were out spreading salt on the roads.

They explained that for the moment there was no snow cover, while five to six centimeters were expected to form until the end of the day.

The city transportation company GSP told Beta news agency that there were no any major problems in traffic.

Snow is also falling this Tuesday in northern, central and western parts of the country.
