Winter is over.

Don’t take it from me, read the article yourself.

The worst of the winter is likely to be over, with the outlook pointing to warmer and drier than normal weather over coming months, conditions that may set up another early fire season.
For Sydney, the last week of July is set to be its warmest for the month, with all days but Sunday forecast to reach 20 degrees or above, setting up yet another heat record for the city.
Most of the country’s south-east can expect mild conditions for the rest of July, said Brett Dutschke, senior meteorologist with Weatherzone. “It looks like all of winter’s strong cold fronts could be confined to July.”

How exactly did Brett become a qualified meteorologist?

This weeks forecast indicates winter is indeed just getting started.

95% of Climate Models Agree: The Observations Must be Wrong

anthonyvioli:

Great insight into how poor climate models are, and how you, yes you, are losing money because of it.

I’m seeing a lot of wrangling over the recent (15+ year) pause in global average warming…when did it start, is it a full pause, shouldn’t we be taking the longer view, etc.

These are all interesting exercises, but they miss the most important point: the climate models that governments base policy decisions on have failed miserably.

I’ve updated our comparison of 90 climate models versus observations for global average surface temperatures through 2013, and we still see that >95% of the models have over-forecast the warming trend since 1979, whether…

Scorching heat causes temps to plunge.

Heatwaves, scorching heat yada yada. Same old shit, different day.

Luckily, mother nature doesn’t care too much, so far this month we are at -0.057C.

And spare a thought for the USA, they are at almost 4C below normal so far!

Blair Trewin says we have committed to a warmer future, maybe he is going to live on Venus sometime soon.

El Nino Watch.

Just checked the sea surface temperatures, David Jones stated early last year 2014 would be the warmest year on record due to the very large El Niño that will come on.

Strange, I see a lot of colder than normal water along the equator.

Maybe David needs a refresher course given he runs the National Climate Centre.

Or maybe the models cannot model ENSO, who’d have thought?

 

David the douchebag removes foot from Mouth.

Seems we don’t need to say much, David Jones is doing a fine job of digging himself a nice big hole.

This was 2008.

This drought may never break

January 4, 2008 IT MAY be time to stop describing south-eastern Australia as gripped by drought and instead accept the extreme dry as permanent, one of the nation’s most senior weather experts warned yesterday.

“Perhaps we should call it our new climate,” said the Bureau of Meteorology’s head of climate analysis, David Jones.

This drought may never break – Environment – smh.com.au

Then in 2009, on the back of a massive November heatwave, we are told this is the new normal, expect this with interest in the years to come, because our climate is becoming “unliveable.”

Fast forward 4 years, years which have been colder and by far wetter than 2009, and now we see this.

Tend to think we should use the American definition of seasons in coastal vic.
Summer doesn’t usually start to the solstice, with December much more a spring
month.

Ummm what the fuck? Is this man insane?

First we are going to burn in hell and 4 years later we shouldn’t expect any heat until January.

It shows how much of a lying scum he is.

Meanwhile, the weather is bending him over repeatedly.

David Jones admits temps were 2 degrees warmer than current day.

The man who calls himself Hillybilly on the Australian Weather forum, because he is so pathetic and doesn’t want to use his real name, admitted some time ago that the Holecene Optimum temps were 2 degrees C warmer than today.

The climate 5000 years ago (holocene
optimum) was wetter and more consistent than today, and 2deg warmer. the problem
now seem to be that we’re in no mans land, since the 98 shift were too warm for
the antarctic fronts and to cold for the tropical moisture.

Just curious, if we are so warm why have had a barrage of non stop assaults from the South in the last 4 years since this statement was made?

Too cold for tropical moisture? Hmm lets see how that went..

Epic fail.

So the man who is the head of the National Climate Centre admits that we have been much warmer 5,000 years ago. But in the next breath says its never been hotter and we are to blame.

Maybe that’s why he still drives a Ford territory.

Or maybe its because he is a lying douchebag.
