Getting some much needed rain at the moment.  72F and very comfy outside.

It's 0.9ºC here now, after an overnight low of 0.6ºC.  Looks like it's set to warm up this week but already this means March has set a lower temperature than we received in all of February!  The coldest February night was 1.2ºC.

60F at 10:26AM,  on the way to the upper 60s / maybe some low 70s around the area later..  Right now, today looks like the coolest day of the week, possibly for the last 12 days of winter 21-22.

Like the last couple nights, anticipating another night right around 40 ..w/ some upper 30s here and there. Not expecting any threat of frost due to very low dew points < Forecast to be roughly 20 deg cooler than tomorrow morning's low >.

Beyond tomorrow morning, looks like lows rise thru the 40s, eventually trending back towards the upper 40s / lower 50s by next weekend / final week of winter. Highs finally head back towards the upper 70s / 80s next week as well.

While not really on any extended forecast " radars " just yet, Today's 12z GFS run is hinting at an early taste of 100F heat by around the 23rd / 24th.. We'll see.

Other runs pump up the heat further est over NM and TX as well.  If ..And it's a big if  ..we do manage to record our first 100F reading  ~ before ~  the 26th, it likely would be the earliest 100F reading on record ( Current earliest 100F high is on the 26th itself for Phoenix )

Giving this scenario a 15% chance.. Possible, but not all that likely, for now at least. That said, that 15% chance takes into account the fact that the sun angle is jusst  inside " the zone " to crank up the heat,  ..if a strong enough area of a High Pressure area can drop anchor over AZ, and/or S. Cal / Northern Baja long enough, and not get knocked back to the south by passing troughs over the Pac. N.W. / Interior Great Basin.

Keeping an eye on the PNA as well.. Trend is starting to look a little better for seeing less temperature swings / more sustained spring heat / moderating temperatures across a wider area here in the west. As you can see, CPC updated the look of some of their forecast tool products. Nice to finally be able to see these graphs clearly ..and a bit more zoomed in compared to the older view.  NAO and AO graphs have also been upgraded.  We'll see if the trend toward positive territory continues, or if we're still in the swing of things as March closes out.

After a max of just 13C / 56F it is Looking mild tonight with a low of around 10C / 50F in London and southeast England. Temperatures are trending upwards into next week, but still some way off being even remotely warm or springlike. It still kind of winter, so to speak. There is just an obvious absence of frost or proper cold with both mild days and nights.

ECMWF (Euro) model suggesting close to 20C / 68F midweek next week. 19-20C in London.

I'm certainly not going to complain in the meantime, having just seen the forecast for Ukraine's capital, Kyiv. They have lows of -9C / 15F forecast for the next 2 nights. Just horrible given that many people are without electricity, heat, or housing altogether. That is some pretty severe cold which can be fatal to people that are exposed to the elements, especially the sick or elderly. I'm surprised it is even that cold going into mid March now. Nighttime frosts every single night as well.

It looks bitterly cold there! You've got to feel for the Ukrainians fighting back the Russian hoards in such freezing conditions.

I reached a high of 61F on Thursday with no UHI as I am right out in the countryside. Some places reached 62-63F in southeast England. It was definitely warmer than forecasted.

 

I had a low of 9C / 48F last night and it is currently 13C / 56F at 10am on Friday morning. Hopefully temperatures may exceed 20C / 68F next week in places.

Winter is well and truly buried now, given that I have noticed the first self-seeded sunflowers sprouting this week. I have spotted several sunflowers coming up at the allotment and one in my yard now this week, which is early given that it is only the 2nd week of March.

After a very windy and rain-less/ dusty evening, much calmer and 62F at 11:04 AM  ..on the way to the low 70s later ..Today will likely be the last " cool " day of winter 21-22, and possibly the last night we see lows ..below the mid 40s for the rest of the month..

 Although those earlier hints of flirting w/ 100F at some point for the rest of the month have faded quite a bit, a 2 day / few days' stretch in the low 90s is still possible before the 31st.. We'll see..

Regardless, Upward is the trend from tomorrow onward.. Just as Baseball finally gets going..

This has been characteristic of this winter, warm flushes and then the bottom drops, and repeat the cycle. Temp will be dropping into the 20's and 30's across northern and central Florida on the GULF coast (including Tampa).  Now, there is forecast of snow for us tomorrow after a day in the 50-60 range; one to three inches now, maybe more, and they seem to love using the term "bomb cyclone".  Temps will bottom out at 21 F. tomorrow night.  I just spend some time lugging my huge, containerized Butias, Washingtonia, and Canary Dates back into the garage.  They would probably be okay for one night but I love them so it, would kill me if they were damaged.  Then, temps back into the 60's in a few days. At least here,  deciduous trees and shrubs have not initiated new, tender growth, this freaky cold will be able to do some damage in the Southeast.

Currently 65F here after the storms moved through.  Had a tornado watch through the morning to 11AM.  Now wind chill advisories are in effect overnight from 1AM to 10AM.  If the forecast low of 36F holds, we'll break the daily record of 40F pretty easily after nearly tying a record high yesterday.

It has been exceptionally cold in eastern Europe over the past few days. Record cold in many places, including Ukraine. This may travel west and effect the rest of Europe too.

Temperatures down to -20C / -5F in Poland near the border where refugees are entering the country from Ukraine...

 

Coldest night of winter for Slovakia, coming in mid March!

 

Very cold in Ukraine still, down to -17C / 1F in places... 

 

Istanbul, Turkey has experienced 2 foot of snow and temperatures down to -5C / 23F. 

 

Athens in Greece has had snow, nighttime frosts and daytime temperatures only reached 3C / 38F on Thursday.

 

Very cold in Syria last night as well with temperatures down to -11C / 12F at one of the refugee camps, due to the same Siberian/arctic airmass.

80 / 80F+ thru Saturday.. then another quick drop back into the 70s as a low passes to the north north east..  ..Then back to the 80s by next Wednesday, ..As long as the current forecast stays on track.

Fairly sunny and 16C / 61F right now but expecting poor visibility and air quality later on as Saharan sand sweeps across Western Europe. It looks like it may already be starting to block out the sun here as it is getting hazy. I will post some photos at sunset if it hits us properly, since the plume of sand is just making its way across the English channel now. There is actually a cold front hitting us from the northwest too right now, otherwise temperatures would be warmer and closer to 20C / 68F under this setup.

I had a low of 9C / 48F last night and I am expecting a high of about 14C / 58F later. It’s definitely colder than yesterday. We are getting some apocalyptic looking skies too over southeast England as the Saharan sand blows over us. This is outside my workplace in Guildford right now at 11am…

It is literally raining sand here now. Every car is covered with it. Any white surfaces are now turning a browny red. It has got worse since I took this picture earlier.

The southern regions of England are certainly close enough, but the sand has still had to travel over 1,000 miles to get here. Usually in spring and summer we do get a slight coating of sand on everything, as it travels north across Iberia, but we don’t usually get events quite like this. The last major one was back in 2018 I think.

The cars and streets are absolutely covered in London and southeastern England now. I can confirm it is coming across from the Moroccan and Tunisian Sahara, not Saudi Arabia as some Brits seem to think!

 

 

So many people have no idea what is going on. It’s crazy how many are unaware of why this is happening…

This photo is actually near central England surprisingly, so the sand has travelled quite far north!

Here it was completely gone as of yesterday already, it didn't affect too much in the area where I live in (Altea - Benidorm) yet just at some dozens of kms south of me it looked like Mars, even worse at about 100 km away, places in coastal Murcia were completely red. The air pollution was insane due to the sand particles. 

That last car looks exactly like the cars I've seen in pics from Central Spain. Incredible how it travelled that far north without losing its capacity to spread that much amount of dust. 

The high altitude mountains of Spain (especially the Pyrenees, at the border with France) that were capped with snow got completely brown leaving an epic view, I've seen it also happened across other mountain ranges in France.

I saw the photos of the skies and sand deposits in Spain, France, Switzerland etc. Pretty crazy! I am surprised just how much Saharan sand was deposited up here at 50-51N. I'll make this my last post on the subject since I am clogging up the thread. It's not often the Sahara rains down on London with such effect...

Some cold nights coming up for London under clear skies with high pressure building now. Definite signs of spring next week though. In recent years April has been excessively dry, averaging about 0.1 inches of rainfall. I expect this April to be the same. It looks like the high pressure block is setting up again. Mild, but very, very dry.

81F at 4:36PM on St. Patrick's Day..  Warmer tomorrow, Hot Saturday  before another break in the heat, which may push 90F by next Saturday..

758421408_Screenshot2022-03-17at16-41-32ChandlerAZ10-DayWeatherForecastWeatherUnderground.png.f988a6425f208e34f046895071981db7.png

Storm bringing a break Sunday/ Monday may bring a shower / isolated thunderstorm to parts of South Central AZ ..and definitely more wind / dusty skies.. 

PNA check:

pna.gefs.sprd2.png


Looking further out, a tantalizing, first glimpse of what might .. Emphasize might..  be " Wet AZ Monsoon season, ..Pt. 2 " in the latest 90 day outlook..  Obviously, this could change..



Hard to see on these pictures, but some potentially encouraging signs in the " wet monsoon " direction,  SST- wise for the summer time frame in this month's Global SST forecast from the NMME. Other model members on the SST page for the same 3 month period ( accessible on the site itself ) vary a little more, but most follow the same idea for the summer ahead

Remember, cool/ cold anomalies off the Pacific side of Baja / warm to well above normal temp. anomalies in the Gulf of CA. are what we're looking for ( to help drive Gulf Surges up the Gulf, into AZ - and the rest of the Southwest- this coming summer.. ) 86F is the magic number in the Northern part of the Gulf to get those gulf surges going..



And some updates regarding ENSO..  A - 3 peat La Nina? ..It's Possible..  But we'll see what happens ( note differences in the two graphs.. IRI update should be out soon )
