Friday April 20th… Dear Diary. The main purpose of this ongoing post will be to track United States extreme or record temperatures related to climate change. Any reports I see of ETs will be listed below the main topic of the day. I’ll refer to extreme or record temperatures as ETs (not extraterrestrials)😊. Here is today’s main climate change related topic:
Current Global Strange Weather
Climate is merely the average of weather events over days, months and years. If a region has a stable climate inhabitants come to expect certain types of seasonal weather events over and over during a lifetime. Should climate start to change long timers will begin to complain of strange or odd weather. Worse, reliable weather for growing traditional crops will become a atypical perhaps leading to food scarcity. “Strange weather” has been occurring across the planet during April 2018, and I’m not writing about a rare tornado in one’s home town, or dry spell. Anyone with any weather sense can see how wacky the weather is getting. Today I thought that I would make a list of some current weather events so that you can be the judge.
First let’s drop by Europe, which has gone from the deep freeze to record warmth in just a few weeks:
Etienne Kapikian, a meteorologist with MeteoFrance, tweeted that Paris’s preliminary high of 83.7 degrees (28.7 Celsius) ranked as the fifth-highest April temperature there in 146 years of measurements.
Several locations in France set all-time April highs, MeteoFrance tweeted.
Here is a peak at the mega-ridge over Europe from this morning:
