Coldest Valentine’s Day ever recorded in Boston

Boston breaks Valentine’s Day cold weather record.

Life-threatening wind chills.

Of course this is weather, not climate. Remember that in August climate propagandists!

Over 10,000 without heat or power.

From the National Weather Service:

Wind Chill Warning remains in effect until noon EST today.

Locations: include all of southern New England except Cape Cod and the Islands.
Hazard types: Life Threatening wind chills.
Wind Chill readings, between 25 and 40 below zero.
Timing: The worst of the wind chills will be this morning.
Impacts: Wind chills this cold can bring on frostbite in as little as 10 minutes! Outdoor exposure should be limited in these conditions.
Air temperatures, lows between 8 and 16 below zero early this morning with even a few colder spots over the higher terrain.

Recommended actions

A Wind Chill Warning is issued when the wind chill index is likely to fall to -25 degrees or colder for at least 3 hours. A wind chill index below -30 can bring about frostbite in as little as 10 minutes. Outdoor exposure should be limited. If you are heading outdoors, dress in layers and keep your hands and head covered to protect against frostbite.

Is record warmth man-made, but record cold natural?  Really?

    Warmest January in satellite record, warmest year on record, year before warmest year on record, 4 years before that warmest year on record, 5 years before that warmest year on record, warmest sea surface temps on record, lowest max Arctic ice extent on record 2015, lowest min extent Arctic ice three years before that…

      Dano, that is after Big Brother made their “adjustments”. Where I live, in the central part of the continent, 1931 was 2 degrees warmer than 2015! No adjustment here and 2015 not even close to a new record. You forgot to mention that just 2 years we had an all time record high in Antarctic sea ice and recently NASA reported huge gains in the past ten years in Antarctic ice-snow mass. Been to the ocean lately? The waves are coming in at the same place as they were 40 years ago.

        Funny how high the sea level is.
        Must be adjustments too eh?

        • Zippit

          Where is the sea level high? Where there is a storm? Or where a few people build on barrier islands after the whites chased them off their good land?

            Ask Miami after you educate yourself.

              oh really? You are telling me that a place that is built at 5 feet above sea level occasionally gets flooded? I’m shocked.

                    I am educated on the rising seas in the US SE and the threats to low-lying cities, especially Miami, thanks!

          So Dano was an apologist for the 1970’s global warming scare too? I doubt you were alive to remember it.

          • Dano2

            Weak flail. But I’ll take the points on offer:

              I’m not a climate change denier. I looked at the local weather records and could not deny what they show and they go back 135 years and the most recent 25 years were cooler than the years 1900 to 1924. The late john Daly found that to be the case worldwide away from the urban heat islands. The global warming issue is all about power and politics – nothing else.

                  lets see….locally the past 25 years average temp, 43.2 degrees, co2 level at 400. 1900 to 1924, average temp
                  43.0, co2 level about 300. Hhhmmmm. Thats why there is a debate pal…the theory is bogus. Ask Richard Linzen.

          Oops…the 1970’s global cooling scare I meant. It’s so cold here today I can’t think straight. LOL

    Dano my boy,
    You have been much confused by reading the Daily Kos and the Huffington Post too often.
    Myopia runs rampant in the climate alarmist camp since there were no thermometers with which to establish records during the Medieval Warm Period, a time when proxy data indicate warmer individual years and decades than any having occurred since the end of the Little Ice Age, up to and including 2015. The warm years you refer to are not statistically significant. Before NOAA back filled data to alter their surface records, 1934 stood apart as the warmest year on record. And if NOAA data and computer modeling programs were made available for public audit, I am confident that the years 2000-2015 would not be records even in the Modern Era. Your little graph with vertical scale expansion is a silly attempt to show another version of the Mann hockey stick graph that was thoroughly discredited to the extent that even the IPCC was embarrassed enough to dropped it from their recent reports. The satellite record (for two independently operated systems and the balloon data) show nearly 19 years with no statistically significant temperature increase to date as determined by least squares regression analysis. With the anticipated La Nina that some climate scientists expect to take hold following the weakening of the current El Nino, 2016-2017 may bring about the beginning of a secular cooling accompanying the waning weak Sun Cycle 24 and an anticipated even weaker SC-25. Should a decades long cooling begin, mankind may be in for climate disruption (cool summers and shortening growing seasons) that would present far greater risks than the modest warming that has proceeded since about 1850. Take another look, Dano. Arctic ice has begun to recover. Antarctic ice, both the perimeter floe ice and continental glacial ice has been increasing for several decades, so that the net rate of accumulation, even allowing for some losses along the West Antarctic ice sheet attributable to volcanic activity miles beneath the ice, is positive as is is the gain of polar ice mass as a whole globally.
    Cheers!
    HL Mencken

      False: Medieval Warm Period a time when proxy data indicate warmer individual years and decades than any having occurred since the end of the Little Ice Age, up to and including 2015.

      You made this up: The warm years you refer to are not statistically significant.

      Hilariously duped: 1934 stood apart as the warmest year on record.

      Dishonest on purpose: Your little graph with vertical scale expansion

      indicator of hopelessly derptastic: the Mann hockey stick graph that was thoroughly discredited

      Typical denialist, always wishing like a fool: 2016-2017 may bring about the beginning of a secular cooling

      Clowny: Arctic ice has begun to recover.

      Comical Volcaners everybuddy! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH West Antarctic ice sheet attributable to volcanic activity

      You made me LOLz! Thanks!

    One day, yas are gunna sitting in your car,
    or lying in a hammock, maybe even kissing
