We're expecting some "warming" into the low 30s later this week, but temperatures continue to be well below normal. There is this strange strong correlation between the sun's inactivity and our cold weather. Possibly just coincidence, but certainly stronger than with the increasing CO2 the Europeans are beginning to discount.
Meanwhile, as Al Gore predicted, the North Pole is melting and all of that cold air is going away.
Gee, I hope Santa doesn't drown.
Northeast Siberia braces for extreme cold of -60C
15/12/2008 12:45 YAKUTSK, December 15 (RIA Novosti) - Temperatures in the northeast Siberian republic of Yakutia could fall to minus 60 degrees Celsius (minus 76 degrees Fahrenheit) in the next few days, the local meteorological service said Monday.
With average low temperatures in Yakutia dropping below minus 40 degrees Celsius (minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit) overnight, weather in the town of Verkhoyansk dropped overnight to minus 53 degrees Celsius (minus 63.4 degrees Fahrenheit), while in Oymyakon it reached minus 57 degrees Celsius (minus 70.6 degrees Fahrenheit).
“However, this is not the limit - in the next few days weather in the town of Krestyakh could drop below minus 58 degrees Celsius (minus 72.4 degrees Fahrenheit),” the meteorological service spokesman said.
The spokesman added that the current spell of extremely cold weather was due to an influx of cold polar air masses. [I guess that's where the cold went when it left the north pole].
