    Alaska Temps Expected To Soar 40 Degrees Above Normal

    Alaska Temps Expected To Soar 40 Degrees Above Normal..

    "Startling" is a word you don't often hear from an Alaskan meteorologist with over three decades of experience, especially in a place used to wild swings in weather. But this month's warmth in the state is out of bounds, even for Rick Thoman.

    The climate expert at NOAA's Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy used the word when stating that the month of March — for Alaska as a whole — will be the 29th month since January 2013 to be ranked in the warmest ten percent since 1925.

    And it's likely to get even warmer as we round out the month. On Saturday, villages along the northern coast of Alaska, right on the Arctic Ocean, are expected to spike to 40 degrees Fahrenheit above normal.

    Weather happens.

    Parts of Alaska See Coldest Temperatures in Several Years as Lows Plummet into the 40s and 50s Below Zero



    While much of the Lower 48 enjoyed a January thaw, Alaska experienced its coldest air of the winter season. Parts of the state even saw their coldest temperatures in several years.

    The frigid temperatures followed a record-warm 2016 for the nation's 49th state, where some locations even shattered average temperature records by 5 degrees or more.

    On Wednesday morning, Fairbanks fell to minus 50 degrees, making it the coldest reading there since a minus-51-degree low on Jan. 29, 2012. Though frigid, Wednesday's low was still well short of the daily record for Jan. 18 of minus 61 degrees. But, it was perfect weather to perform a science experiment outdoors at the Fairbanks National Weather Service office.

    Anchorage dropped to minus 15 degrees Wednesday morning, which is the first time that has happened there since Jan. 28, 2012. In addition, the high temperature did not even reach zero degrees.

    An unofficial report out of Healy, Alaska, showed a minus-56-degree temperature on Wednesday. The thermometer in the picture below is not broken.

    The mercury also plunged to minus 56 degrees early Wednesday in Tanana, the coldest low there since January 2012 when it dipped to minus 61 degrees.

    McGrath saw a low of minus 52 degrees on Tuesday. That was the coldest low in the western Alaska town since a minus-55-degree temperature on Jan. 4, 2012.

    In Shungnak, the wind chill reportedly dipped to minus 76 degrees on Tuesday.

    The coldest temperature ever recorded in Fairbanks is 66 degrees below zero. Below is a map of locations that have fallen to 70 degrees below zero or colder in their recorded history. One state in the Lower 48 qualifies – Montana.

    Those who seek God with all their heart will find Him and be given sight. Those who seek their own agenda will remain blind.

    yep, weather happens. some want The Bank to do something about it...

    Second, the bank needs someone who can double down on the unofficial third part of their mission: climate change. This is a critical new priority for the bank, which needs to help governments design and build climate-friendly economies to achieve both growth and transition.

    Progress on climate action is not only too slow to meet the Paris commitments to stall global warming, but some things are still going backward. Global CO2 emissions have risen for the first time in four years, and new evidence suggests that oceans are warming faster than previously thought. The impacts on the poorest from hotter temperatures and drought, increased storm intensity, and lost agricultural productivity are already profound.

    Addressing this will be expensive but worth it, and the bank has committed to going from billions — their balance sheet — to trillions — the actual financing gap to achieve these goals. What keeps trillions of dollars of savings sitting in zero-interest bonds rather than invested in potentially high-yielding infrastructure investments? Risk. Or at least the perception of risk.

    Tit 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

    2 Peter 3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

    In His mercy God always gives warning signs before coming judgement..

    Revelation 16:8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.

    9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
    A man is in a great place when he has no one to turn to but God.
