You can run the 10-day animation if you go to Hourly Forecast Maps on the Climate-Reanalyzer Home Page. Much of Texas is expected to warm up on the 24th, and freeze again on the 26th.
Most of the Ten Weather Stations I monitor are returning cooler temperatures this year than last. We are just emerging from a short cold snap on the Yorkshire coast. At Week 11 of this meteorological year Durham Tees Mean Temperature data show this winter to be running 2.3°C cooler than at the same time last year. It was 1.53°C warmer last year than in 2019.
The current Durham Tees Mean Temperature is 0.49°C above the IPCC’s Pre-Industrial Global Average. This is 0.58 degrees BELOW the organization’s projection made in 2017. North-east England is now COOLING at 27 times the expected rate. Not to worry – last winter WARMED 70 times more than projected.
