If the damned North Atlantic Oscillation doesn't get itself sorted out. …

How do you get the spell check to work on this thing? I had it working on a Linux distro I managed to find out how to download Opera to. Or was it Firefox?

Ah that's it…
My memory isn't what it never really was but I would have liked it to be.
Speaking of which:

There have been plenty of phases in the past that have occurred at around half past eleven (and as far as the permutations go; five thirty.)

But I can't remember anything about them.
11:00 and the rest of them, are fine spells when the pressure over Greenland is anticyclonic. The present spell:
…. has a vaguely anticyclonic set up there, mostly – it rained here yesterday morning (Thurdsay 24th June) and, IMO, Celia hit shallows on the 120th longitude.

It was doing 100 knots; I don't know what happened yesterday but now it up to 130 kt – a phenomenal speed for winds at sea level. (The molecules in the dynamics would under contemporary understanding, have to push and exponentially large amount of atmosphere out of the way to get up to that speed. And that dichotomy/paradox is impossible.)

Prepostal edit:
I just found out what happened yesterday:

The browser is a crap medium for posting charts but a copy and paste to a text file of some sort should clarify matters.

Or you could just go to the site and see for yourself. I had to copy the damned thing for fear of losing the mutt. But I digress into my own dichotomies….

When a cyclone hits shallows it diverges to some extent, the extent mirroring the equal but opposite divergence underground:

And we got rain in the middle of a drought.

It doesn't take the Brain of Britain to draw the obvious conlusion. (Marshalled by nit-wits in the CRU and MetO of course, even the Brain of Britain would get stymied were it not for the fact I can see right through the stupid ********.)

It's going to be a long run:

11 Jul 19:40
18 Jul 10:10
26 Jul 01:36

10 Aug 03:08


11 and 26 July should be wet spells (for my region; YMWV) however these two are at times that are just on the cusp of …
ah the hell with it, the spell for the 26th is a shocker with flooding washing more people into the sea.
Unless the damned North Atlantic Oscillation doesn't get itself sorted. And quite frankly, I haven't got a clue.

But if they do all run through, the saving grace for Britain will be a mother of a thunderstorm spell (not exactly Floridan standards but for Britain, fun) from the 10th August.

But one more day in the life of the spell from the 19th June has yet to run. And I am waiting for that magic Mag 7+ earthquake. (Which should stymie the forecasts aboute Darby and Celia.)

Here is my alpoogy to those having fidiclutfy flowling ymess ays:

  2. This is interesting: However the spell is not due to end until Sunday.Stay tuned.According to my own peculiar weatherlore, it should be sunny -which it is. And the nights cool (for a British summer) -which it isn't.Not sultry day or night -which it isn't.(Also, I've seen some more mares tails….indicative of storms.)For the outcome to be a severe quake -or the other variation, severe volcanic eruption the weather forecasts have to fail in some major way.And for it to be a tropical storm event the contemporary stuff has to be spot on with more of the same in Britain.Which the above low over Britain precludes.Interesting.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/10465678.stm I'd like to post a comment about Alex but though it is a Mexican event, Google reports it from the US viewpoint. The damned news from there even point towards the hurricane causing tornadoes. I wonder how many other countries share such a phenomenon.And finally: Northern Lights over erupting Icelandic volcanohttp://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1290776/Northern-Lights-erupting-Icelandic-volcano.html

    Venice, EU, 1 de julio.- La tormenta tropical Alex desaceleró los trabajos de limpieza y contención del derrame de petróleo en el Golfo de México el jueves, cuando aún faltan semanas para concretar la reparación definitiva del pozo dañado de BP en el lecho marino. La gigante de energía con sede en Londres negó rumores que indicaban que había logrado contener la fuga. la versión empujó al alza las acciones de BP. Alex tocó tierra como huracán en la frontera entre México y Texas el miércoles tarde, al oeste del sitio donde se extiende el derrame, pero los fuertes vientos y el mar agitado retrasaron los planes de BP de ampliar la capacidad de captura de crudo. El mal tiempo también amenazó con llevar más agua contaminada con petróleo hacia las playas estadounidenses de la zona del Golfo de México y obligó a detener el uso de dispersantes químicos y quemas controladas de crudo en la superficie del océano. El peor derrame en la historia de Estados Unidos lleva ya 73 días y causó daños ambientales y económicos en la costa estadounidense del Golfo de México, golpeando a la industria de la pesca y el turismo, manchando las playas y matando vida silvestre.

    The site is showing a drop in pressure of 7 millibars noon today. Tomorrow the pressure is back to 974 mb.So that is either tornadoes or an earthquake. It is sandwiched between an High of 1018 over Greenland and another of 1017 over the Med. I can't remember what I said that could be. LHL = tornadoes. It must be a quake then? It will be interesting, whatever.

    What is annoying is that I have only recently realised the importance of this sandwich. The detail is in the filling and the devil is in the detail.It would be quicker to wait and see but infinitely more satifying to find the reasoning I propounded and quote it before hand.If I am to do that I am cutting it fine.Pity I haveno idea about a search term. Maybe "Greenland" + "south west"But I was referring to a Low over Greenland and another somewhere to the South west. A classic negative North Atlantic cycle phenomenon. The High running through from west to easrt another anomalous situation; though not at all uncommon for a -ve NAO.Here is another idiosyncrasy:Originally posted by Sydney Morning Herald .au:

    Alex, the first hurricane of the Atlantic season, weakened across northeast Mexico as it neared high mountains on Thursday, after disrupting oil clean-up operations in the Gulf of Mexico.Alex was downgraded to a tropical storm after roaring ashore late on Wednesday as a Category Two hurricane slightly south of the eastern US-Mexico border.{AND after running ashore on the Yucatan penninsula a few days earlir too!}The Miami-based National Hurricane Center predicted tornadoes.Tamaulipas had widespread flooding with rivers gushing beyond their banks and thousands of people remained in temporary shelters.Mexico's Meteorological Service warned that the storm would produce "intense and torrential rain, strong winds and an elevated surge" through Friday across five Mexican states."These rains could cause life-threatening flash flood and mud slides," the NHC warned.At 15:00 GMT tropical Storm Alex was moving westwards at around 20km/h and losing steam, according to the NHC.Maximum sustained winds decreased to near 85km/h and Alex was expected to dissipate over high ground overnight.Mexican officials reported no immediate casualties, but at least 11 people were killed over the weekend when the storm passed through Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, Nicaragua, Guatemala and El Salvador.The Mexican navy kept some 2000 sailors at their barracks in Tamaulipas, while around 17,500 people were evacuated from the coast, including all inhabitants of the fishing town of La Carbonera, where many homes are made of wood.Over the border, power lines were down in South Padre Island, located in far southeastern Texas. Authorities also closed a bridge between the island and the mainland due to high winds.Alex disrupted clean-up operations for the massive BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday.Although the storm travelled far southwest of the worst hit area – the coasts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida – its strong winds whipped up choppy waves, forcing a halt in skimming operations.Large waves also pushed more of the huge slick onto fragile shorelines.US officials said the storm interrupted 26.3 per cent of crude oil production in the Gulf on Wednesday.Alex is the first Atlantic hurricane to form in June since 1995, according to the National Hurricane Center.US President Barack Obama declared a state of emergency in Texas late Tuesday to help with possible storm damage.

    © 2010 AFPhttp://news.smh.com.au/breaking-news-world/alex-weakens-across-northeast-mexico-20100702-zqzu.htmlThe idiosyncrasy is the birth of tornadoes.They are quite common this time of year all across the US plains. But several cells in the past have been reported in Southern US States as some hurricanes went ashore.I attributed this to the time of the phase of the moon at one time. Then forgot all about the situation. Now I'd like to clear the decks.I don't think the time of the phase has anything to do with the type and track of the storm if one is generated. Obviously the time of the phase is important -all important for the generation of weather types but the location is not so easily drawn from that.The permutations are staggering. Just as they are for tidal constants drawn by hydrogrphers from the finest think tanks in the world.None the less once we get so close to events that we can see meteorological charts predicting one or two days ahead, we can suppose tracks and power.The thing with tropical storms and it IS a big thing is that they tend to occur in regions where the pressure at sea surface levels is almopst always at 1016 millibars.So there are no adjacent highs sandwiching themFunny how I never made that observation before.Maybe god was telling me but due to my limited attention span ans poor short term memory….And lack of humility…Sorry dad.
