KUWAIT: Since late Friday, the country has experienced an uncommonly cold weather as temperature dropped below freezing in many areas, Kuwait Meteorology Center said yesterday. According to the Meteorology website, the Cold weather was due to an active north western winds affected by the Siberian High on the region.
The lowest temperatures recorded in the country were -3 degrees Celsius in West Salmi, -2 degrees in north Abdaly, and 3 degrees at Kuwait International Airport. Temperature reached below freezing in desert areas, the center noted. It is excepted that maximum temperature, on Saturday, would not exceed 10 degrees during daylight.
Inner Mongolia, China (Reuters) City hit by extreme -45 degrees Celsius temperature in north China.
Temperatures in the city of Genhe, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, north China, reached minus 45 degrees Celsius on Wednesday, the lowest temperature since beginning of the new year.
On third day of the first Chinese Lunar month, the severe sub-zero temperatures were triggered by cold fronts sweeping the area. Before 10:30 on Wednesday morning, the visibility was reduced to 30 meters, with clouds of thick fog.
Residents stayed indoors to avoid the cold as there were less and less numbers of pedestrians and cars on roads.
Snow and freezing rain continued to fall in parts of China today, disrupting travel as the first day of the Lunar New Year spurs the world’s biggest annual human migration.Snow will fall in areas south of the Yangtze River in provinces including Shaanxi, Gansu, and Henan, tapering off today, the China Meteorological Administration reported on its website.

Even at Noon, the sun hangs on the edge of the horizon at this time of year in the frigid tundra of northern Alaska. The cold that extends from Siberia to Alaska is extraordinary. Thursday’s high temperature of -30F at Fairbanks, Alaska was 39 degrees colder than average!! Wow! Many record low temperatures were set in Alaska. Here’s a list. The coldest spot I could find was Manley Hot Springs at 54 below zero! North Pole, Alaska dipped to -49, Fort Yukon sank to -46 and Eielson AFB bottomed out at -43. An Air Quality Warning was issued for Fairbanks, where the cold air settles near the ground and doesn’t mix out during the short day. Oymyakon, Siberia has had three consecutive mornings of -50 or colder. The last day they had that was warmer than average was October 11th. Here’s a cool time lapse from the Intl. Space Station…nice pictures of auroras and lightning.
Airline passengers left stranded by a freak snowstorm that pounded the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states were waiting to get to their destinations Sunday, many after spending a restless night on cots or airport floors.
“Whatever kind of system they had, it completely and utterly broke down,” said passenger Fatimah Dahandari, who spent a night in Hartford, Connecticut’s Bradley International Airport while trying to get to New York. “It looks like a refugee camp in here.”
More than 4 million people in at least five states were without power Sunday as the storm moved offshore. Up to five deaths, some in traffic accidents, were blamed on the storm.
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) – A snowstorm with a ferocity more familiar in February than October socked the Northeast over the weekend, knocking out power to 2.3 million, snarling air and highway travel and dumping more than 2 feet of snow in a few spots as it slowly moved north out of New England. Officials warned it could be days before many see electricity restored.
The combination of heavy, wet snow, leaf-laden trees and frigid, gusting winds brought down limbs and power lines. At least three deaths were blamed on the weather, and states of emergency were declared in New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and parts of New York.
“If you are without power, you should expect to be without power for a prolonged period of time,” Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said Saturday night.
The storm worsened as it moved north, and communities in western Massachusetts were among the hardest hit. Snowfall totals topped 27 inches in Plainfield, and nearby Windsor had gotten 26 inches by early Sunday.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — An unusually early and powerful nor’easter dumped wet, heavy snow Saturday on parts of the mid-Atlantic region, weighing down or toppling leafy trees and power lines and knocking out electricity for 1.7 million as the storm headed toward New England.
Communities inland were getting hit hardest, with eastern Pennsylvania serving as the bull’s-eye for the storm, said National Weather Service spokesman Chris Vaccaro. Some places got more than half a foot of snow, and towns near the Maryland-Pennsylvania border saw 10 inches fall. And New York City’s Central Park set a record for both the date and the month of October with 1.3 inches of snow by midafternoon and more falling.
More than 1.7 million customers lost power from Maryland north through Massachusetts, and utilities were bringing in crews from other states to help restore it. Half a million in New Jersey were without power, including Gov. Chris Christie, and almost as many were in the dark in Connecticut and Pennsylvania. Both New Jersey and Connecticut declared states of emergencies.
A sudden onset of harsh winter conditions caused transport chaos in Bulgaria on Tuesday, with one man freezing to death, eight people missing in mountains, 600 villages without power and schools closed.
A 73-year-old man chopping wood in southeastern Bulgaria died on the way to hospital after being snowbound overnight along with 15 other Roma, including eight children, authorities said.
Six hikers including two children plus two rescue workers were missing in the Balkan mountain range near the eastern city of Sliven, where a tempest blew over trees and fences, even lifting roofs off buildings.
Hundreds of vehicles including lorries without winter tyres were stranded along mountain roads, while two trains carrying 100 people were stuck in snowdrifts 10 hours after setting off.
The founder of the The Weather Channel in the US has described the concept of global warming as ‘the greatest scam in history’ and accused global media of colluding with ‘environmental extremists’ to alarm the public.
“It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a SCAM,” John Coleman wrote in an article published on ICECAP, the International Climate and Environmental Change Assessment Project, which is known for challenging widely published theories on global warming.
LONDON — One of the driest spring seasons on record in northern Europe has sucked soils dry and sharply reduced river levels to the point that governments are starting to fear crop losses and France, in particular, is bracing for blackouts as its river-cooled nuclear powerplants may be forced to shut down.
French Agriculture Minister Bruno Le Maire warned this week that the warmest and driest spring in half a century could slash wheat yields and might even push up world prices despite the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization’s predicting a bumper global crop due to greater plantings.
Expect severe weather up to and including tornadoes in the following areas due to HAARP Ring activity over each named town:
Des Moines Iowa
North Indiana along the Michigan Border as far west as Chicago as far east as Lorain Ohio / Cleveland Ohio.
Also watch Grand Rapids , Grayling, Mio, Michigan— although the state of Michigan may just be the accellerator moving the storms along their track…. we shall see about michigan getting severe.. i don’t quite know yet on this… since it seems the whole state is covered by two of the rings…
The rest of the named areas can also be seen by pausing this video and making note of the area, and then compare 2 days later to see what was hit.
Keep an eye on North and South Carolina, as well as Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana over the next 2 days from now 500am CST 5/26/2011 . Is this a severe weather maker like the HAARP ring signatures… or does this have a different effect?
I don’t know quite what to expect (if anything) from these “spiral vortex” RADAR signatures..
weather modification? we shall see.. watch the center of these “rotating vortex returns” for the next 48 hours..
5/25/2011 — expect another very busy weather day = entire midwest under severe threat
Just a heads up .. in case you somehow missed it all yesterday .. today will be a bit more of the same.. severe across the board most likely.
My forecast from earlier today covers several areas, and names the specific towns that may have a threat watch associated with them due to the HAARP Ring activity.
Hundreds of people died yesterday. These storms are as severe as they can get.. F5 tornadoes, softball sized “spiked mace” type hail, torrential rain, flash flooding, and heavy lighting activity.
Beware today if you live in the midwest, if you hear a tornado siren, PLEASE do not dismiss it !! Take warning and move to the proper interior location.
much love to one another, and stay safe in you are in the area from Texas north to North Dakota, west to Colorado, and east to New York State.. bascially 2/3 of the country.
