Dense Fog Advisory in Effect Until 10 AM EST /9 AM Cst/ This Morning…

the National Weather Service in tallahassee has issued a dense fog advisory, which is in effect until 10 AM EST /9 AM cst/ this morning.

dense fog has moved inland from the gulf of mexico and will
overspread the advisory area later tonight.

precautionary/preparedness actions…

a dense fog advisory means visibilities will frequently be
reduced to less than one quarter mile. if driving, slow
down, use your low beam headlights, and leave plenty of distance ahead of you.

The first substantial severe weather outbreak of 2011 will be unfolding across Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi and Northern Alabama from today into the overnight of Thursday. Flooding rains in Kentucky and Tennessee may bring 2-4" of rain in addition to the tornadic threat that will increase throughout the afternoon.
With a strong low level jet aligning perpendicularly to the surface winds pushing warm in from the gulf, tornadic threat over eastern AR and Northern MS will provide ample shear for tornadic threat, with a high likelyhood of damaging hail as well.
The front will approach the will approach the Wiregrass by Friday Morning and is expected to weaking substantially, eliminating the threat for local severe weather.

After mornings like today, ever wonder what causes fog? While there are at least four different types of fog, caused by different weather and geographic phenomenon, there are two types that were showing up in our viewing area this morning: radiational fog and sea fog. 

The fog we experienced was influenced by a few different factors: clear skies, very light wind (2-5 mph) and high dewpoints (over water primarily). When you have clear skies, the air can cool quickly, creating a small dewpoint depression (difference between the temperature and dewpoint). The dew point temperature is the temp that a parcel of air needs to be cooled to for it to become saturated. If the dewpoint depression is less than 2 degrees, than you’re more likely to get fog.

When you have dry air aloft, meaning up high typically where clouds form, it cools quickly. Dry air is more dense than moist air, meaning a shallow layer of moist air at the surface that you get when the air cools (especially over a moist ground) hangs and is trapped by the denser air above it.

When winds are very light, but not calm, it keeps the ground close to the saturation point – rather than drying it. This helps aid in fog formation.

In terms of sea fog, it is more common over colder water. The Gulf water temperature – about 15 miles from shore to inland – is typically a few degrees cooler than the open waters. When wind comes in from the Southeast, South or Southwest, it’s pushing air that was over warmer water over colder water. The air just above the water is very close to the saturation temperature, or dewpoint, and when it moves over cooler waters, it tends to cool to the air and condense it into fog. The temperature of the air and the water over the warmer water cannot be largely different, because it will only cool a by a few degrees when it moves over cooler waters.

Fog burns off faster over land than water because water holds heat much better than land. When the sun beats down through the fog, it heats the ground, and releases heat from the ground that eventually overcomes the fog. Many people believe fog is burned off from the top down, but it actually “lifts” from the surface up.

A Dense Fog Advisory is Now in Effect for All of Southeast
Alabama, Southwest and South Central Georgia, and The Florida Big Bend and Panhandle Until 10 AM EST /9 AM Cst/ This Morning…

the National Weather Service in tallahassee has issued a dense fog advisory, which is in effect until 10 AM EST /9 AM cst/ this morning.

a large area of dense fog continues to expand northward from the florida big bend and panhandle, and is now entering much of
southeast alabama and southwest and south central georgia. this fog is quite dense and is becoming thicker over time which will make it harder to burn off after sunrise, which is why the
advisory has been expanded in time to 10 AM est/ 9 AM CST.
visibilities will be reduced to less than one quarter of a mile in most locations with pockets of higher visibilities making travel dangerous for the morning commute. after this fog finally lifts and burns off later this morning, partly to mostly sunny and warm conditions are still expected for the rest of today.

precautionary/preparedness actions…

a dense fog advisory means visibilities will frequently be
reduced to less than one quarter mile. if driving, slow down, use your low beam headlights, and leave plenty of distance ahead of you.

A wave of charged plasma particles from a huge solar eruption has glanced off the Earth’s northern pole, lighting up auroras and disrupting some radio communications, a NASA scientist said.

But the Earth appears to have escaped a widespread geomagnetic storm, with the effects confined to the northern latitudes, possibly reaching down into Norway and Canada.

“There can be sporadic outages based on particular small-scale events,” said Dean Persnell, project scientist at NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory at Goddard Space Flight Center.

He told AFP the official forecast is “for generally quiet conditions today, perhaps some minor storming tomorrow, but nothing extraordinary.”

The event began Tuesday at 0156 GMT with a spectacular solar eruption in a sunspot the size of Jupiter that produced a Class X flash — the most powerful of all solar events.

The eruption blasted a torrent of charged plasma particles called a coronal mass ejection (CME) toward Earth at about 560 miles per second (900 kilometers per second), the Solar Dynamics Observatory reported.

A direct hit from a CME could trigger a huge geomagnetic storm as incoming particles bounce off the Earth’s geomagnetic field, blacking out radio communications, interfering with GPS navigational systems, in theory even causing power outages.

 

How cold?

In  the above illustration for the week Feb 7-14, 2011 in the contiguous United States, there were

655 Record Lows : 66 Record Highs.

Remember the heat wave this past summer in the Ukraine and western Russia, including Moscow?

This winter has been one of the coldest on record.

And look at England (the red arrow shows Dec 2010):

  The Central England Temperature record is one of the longest continuous temperature record in the world extending back to the Little Ice age in 1659. December 2010 was the coldest December in 120 years with an average of -0.7C just short of the record of -0.8C recorded in December 1890 and the Second Coldest December Temperature in the entire record (352 years).

(statistics compliments of icecap.us)

It’s time to add to the list of dumb things the global warming wackos are claiming…

During just the past two years, the alarmists have blamed it for (links included):

Incredible shrinking sheep, Invasion of jellyfish in the Mediterranean, Surge in fatal shark attack, Boy Scout tornado deaths, Severe acne, Global conflict, Beer tasting different, Suicide of farmers in Australia, Bigger tuna fish, Longer days, Shorter days, Collapse of gingerbread houses in Sweden, Cow infertility, UFO sightings in the UK, Rise in insurance premiums, Heroin addiction  Rise in bear attacks in Japan, Frigid Cold Winters in Great Britain, Cancer, Death from heart disease, diabetes, stroke, respiratory disease, accidents, homicide, suicide, water -borne disease outbreaks, heavier and wetter snowstorms, Lyme disease, Swarms of allergy-inducing and stinging insects, More mosquitoes and devastating pine bark beetle infestations, Spread of forest and crop pests, 40,000 dead crabs… just to name a few…

Here’s the latest crazy claim:

In a speech given by Christiana Figueres, the United Nation’s Executive Secretary for Climate Change, she actually claimed that the recent unrest in Egypt was caused by rising food-prices… which were caused by “global warming”!

She said that on a global level, increasingly unpredictable weather patterns will lead to falling agricultural production and higher food prices, leading to food insecurity.

She claims that recent events around the world clearly show how such situations can cause political instability and undermine the performance of already fragile states.

She adds that if we took part of our defense spending and invested it in reducing CO2 in the atmosphere – while we all stood on one foot and sang Kumbayah – we could avoid the “horrors” associated with global warming… (I added the standing on one foot/Kumbayah part…).

What she is saying, of course, is that we should cut defense spending and give that money to other countries so they can solve their problems.

The food shortage in countries around the world, is not caused by any so-called “global warming”… It’s caused by mismanagement of resources by oppressive, un-democratic, anti-American regimes.

It always bothers me how these “climate experts” never talk about the fact that plants use CO2 to grow… therefore, in actuality, if we were experiencing run-away warming, there should be more food… not less!

The “global warming” silliness has absolutely nothing to do with protecting the world from an environmental apocalypse… It’s all about redistributing your income.
