Dry Winter 2018? What day you now?

Robert,
It’s been raining consistently for 2 weeks now through the end of November and into the first part of December 2018. You were hoping to be wrong - congratulations, YOU WERE WRONG!

Rain

I have to agree. This weather feels very unnatural to me. I miss the rain. Think of how things look, smell, and feel the morning after a rain storm. The dry air is starting to work on my nerves. Las Vegas has seen more rain than us.

RAIN

Okay. I am a big wet weather fan. I heard this on a weather forum several years back. Pls don’t laugh
After that huge earthquake in Japan. I heard it was so powerful it actually tilted the earths Axis 1-3 percent. If so would that have shifted the weather? So San Francisco would actually be LA type weather? Please don’t laugh

Tilting of the earth

Yes the big quake in Japan did in fact alter weather patterns. When the. Island moved it altered the ocean currents. Add to that the big quake in the south Pacific and currents were definitely altered. Warm water currents moved a bit north that has resulted in our weather patterns shifting north. San Francisco will begin to see San Diego type weather. San Diego will experience southern Baja Californina type weather. The conditions that create El Ninio and La Nina have been altered . look for a "NEW" norm that most of us will not like. Extended droughts, water restrictions will become a way of life.

Snow

Hi Mike,
Thank you for this great information. May I ask, what would be a good holiday vacation with snow fun for the family in the states, considering “this weather we are having now is the new normal”? Planned to spend at Yosemite National Park by looks like there is going to be no snow as of week of Christmas.

Rain in the forecast

Mike would love to know if you see any rain at all coming our way and would love to stay in touch

Your forecast

so much for forecasting the weather. its pouring in the bay area and has been for the last week.

Your prediction

Hi Mike,
I’m a Beekeeper in the CA Central Valley/mid coast area. Given your background in meteorology I’d love to get your rainfall prediction for the entire 2019 year. Would you say it’s going to be above/below normal?
Thanks!

San Diego? D

Why do they even bother selling boots coats and umbrellas here??! I hate this. Has anyone heard that we could get ANY interesting weather aside from our day in day out sunshine down here? We used to in the 90’s!
