UK SNOW: BRITAIN FREEZES AS HEAVY SNOW RETURNS by Mark Pangallo

ARCTIC winds left large areas of Britain under a thick layer of snow yesterday.

Plunging temperatures led to heavy falls in the north of England and parts of Scotland and the Met Office warned that winter is far from over.

Families woke up to three inches of snow in Leeds and the forecast is for more snow on higher ground during the early part of the week.

A driver had a lucky escape when his car skidded off the road after blizzards hit the A66 near Bowes in Co Durham.

The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning for much of Scotland and England’s higher regions, which extend as far south as the East Midlands.

There is some respite on the way for the South, however, with London expected to be enjoying periods of sunshine on Wednesday as temperatures climb to a mild 12C.

Shoppers searching for signs of an early spring have been buying daffodils in record numbers. Supermarket chain Waitrose says sales of British daffodils have jumped by a third compared with this time last year.

The running 30 day mean is about to take another drop. One sees how CYCLICAL the overall pattern is with an up and down, biased up when we are warming, down when we are cooling. But the site I posted Friday will be fun to watch. Given what we are looking at globally to end the month, we are going to see a fall to .1 below normal in the running 30 day mean by the end of the month.

So on March 2, when the data comes in, see if I am right

ciao for now ****


FRIDAY NOON

Last gasp of winter despite signs of spring by John Bingham

Spring may be on the way but parts of Britain face a last gasp of winter with warning of heavy snow in some parts.

The Met Office issued a severe weather advisory covering many parts of Scotland and higher ground in northern England and as far south as the East Midlands.

Many upland areas can expect around four inches today, some could see as much as six inches of snow while low-lying parts could face disruption from slush.

But with icy conditions for some, forecasters said there would be a marked “north-south split” with mild spring weather for others.

Temperature in South West England are set to reach the low 50s Fahrenheit today (SAT), markedly above average for the time of year with more mild, spring-like conditions on the way next week.

“There is a real north-south split there,” said Helen Chivers, a Met Office forecaster.

BBC News: South Korea chaos after 'heaviest' snowfall

The heaviest snowfall in more than a century on South Korea's east coast is causing widespread chaos.

Hundreds of houses have collapsed under the weight of the snow. One newspaper described it as a snow bomb.

The South Korean government has deployed 12,000 soldiers to rescue stranded residents.

The worst weather has been in Gangwon province. Weather experts say there will be more snowfall in the area in the coming hours.

"I am 83 years old. It's the heaviest snow in my life. I am really grateful for the soldiers' help," said Park Chae-ran.

The BBC's Nick Ravenscroft in Seoul says that although winters are colder than anywhere else at its latitude, with frequent frost and snow, this year has been different.

January was the coldest since the 1960s.

Put spring on ice: Dry January makes way for another cold snap as more snow is forecast

Don't pack the winter woollies away just yet - snow is forecast to return to parts of Britain by the weekend as temperatures plunge once again.

The Met Office warned that the mercury could drop dramatically over the next few days - bringing the chance of snow showers to the North East and Scotland.

And even though the temperatures will remain above freezing in London and the South, blustery winds will make it feel lot colder.

The return of winter follows a drier than normal January - and the coldest December since records began 100 years ago.

Met Office forecaster John Hammond said western parts of the UK would see milder weather - but that temperatures would be lower in the north.

Sysco, the largest wholesale food distributor in the US and primary supplier to most supermarket chains, has declared force majeure (the "act of God" clause) that allows suspension of contracted prices and supply of fresh fruit and vegetables due to the "unprecedented magnitude" of "devastating" and "extreme freezing temperatures" in a "very broad section of major growing regions in Mexico." Sysco also reports "Florida is normally a major supplier for these items as well, but they have already been struck with severe freeze damage in December and January and up until now have had to purchase product out of Mexico to fill their commitments, that is no longer an option."

At first glance it looks like a graphic from a Discovery Channel programme about a distant ice age. But this astonishing picture shows the world as it is today - with half the Northern Hemisphere covered with snow and ice.

The image was released by the National Oceanic And Atmospheric Association (NOAA) on the day half of North America was in the grip of a severe winter storm.

The map was created using multiple satellites from government agencies and the US Air Force.

Snow in Southern U.S.
Friday, February 11th 2011, 8:18 PM GMT

The icy fingers of winter 2010-11 reached down into the south central U.S. for the second time in a week, breaking many local records for snowfall in a month that is still only 10 days old.
Snowfall totals topped 20 inches (50 centimeters) in parts of Oklahoma, Kansas, and Arkansas, just one week after a Groundhog Day storm coated the region with several inches. Meanwhile, temperatures dropped into the single digits in the American Plains and in Colorado. The storms moved east to dump more snow, ice, and rain in Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and the Carolinas.

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this clear view of the nation's mid-section at 1:25 Central Standard Time on February 10, 2011. Nearly all of the white in this image is snow and ice, except for a bit of clouds in the lower right (southeast) corner. In the larger image file, the outlines of the Ouachita and Ozark mountain ranges darken the snowy landscape, while river valleys such as the Mississippi appear brighter due to fewer trees. Gray-white areas are often developed, urban landscapes that have been coated by snow; some, however, are just rural areas that received less snow.

Tulsa, Oklahoma, received 5.5 inches (14 cm) of snow on February 9, bringing its total to 20.9 inches (53 cm) for the winter, the snowiest on record. In Oklahoma City, 6 inches (15 cm) fell as well, making February 2011 the second snowiest month (18 inches so far) in the state's records, behind March 1911 (20.7 inches). News outlets reported collapsed roofs on a number of public and private buildings and the state Health Department reported 80 storm-related injuries.

Between 12 to 17 inches of new snow fell in eastern and south central Kansas, and it has snowed as much this February as it usually does for an entire winter, a spokesperson for the Kansas Department of Transportation told Reuters.

Joe Bastardi: Three of Next Five Winters Could be as Cold or Colder

This winter is on track to become the coldest for the nation as a whole since the 1980s or possibly even the late 1970s. According to AccuWeather.com Chief Long Range Forecaster Joe Bastardi, three or four out of the next five winters could be just as cold, if not colder.

He is worried that next winter, for example, will be colder than this one.

Bastardi adds that with the U.S. in the middle of one of its worst recessions in its history and the price of oil in question, he is extremely concerned about the prospect for more persistent cold weather in the coming years putting increased financial hardship on Americans.

"Cold is a lot worse than warm," Bastardi said, "and that's why your energy bill goes up during the winter time: because of the fact that it takes a lot to heat a house."

While there are many different factors that are playing into Bastardi's forecast, one of the primary drivers is La Niña and the trends that have been observed in winters that follow the onset of a La Niña.
