#Day195 of #365HappyDays : coming out of work a little after 2am after a 10hr shift into -5° #temperature - it hasn’t risen above freezing all day - to find that the sergeant who left 45 minutes before me had de-iced my car windows. It had started to freeze over again, but was considerably less hassle than it would have been. 💙
NORTHLAND FORECAST FOR DECEMBER 2 & 3, 2023:
#Saturday will be #dry with mostly #cloudy skies. Sunday will see a few #snow #showers pass through northwest Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula, along with potential light #lake #effect along the North Shore.

Popular belief: "If you want to keep your feet warm, wear a hat". Based on thermal camera images of birds from 14 species in cold conditions, birds lose more heat via their bills than their legs.

Further NORTH the cold air is slowly starting to creep in, and by teatime much of Scotland will be COLD
Friday and Saturday will be absolutely BALTIC !!
The planet just had its warmest October on record #environment #temperature #october https://phys.org/news/2023-11-planet-warmest-october.html
#Earth likely passed key 2C #globalwarming point on two #Nov2023 days so far
Friday and Saturday were first two days on record to have global average surface #temperature above 2°C when compared with preindustrial levels indicating just how quickly the planet is warming.
News of the record is in keeping with the record-shattering year so far on track to be the hottest on record globally in all surface weather datasets https://www.axios.com/2023/11/20/earth-2c-warming-threshold-passed-report #climatechange #climatecrisis

‘We must start setting records on cutting emissions,’ UN boss says after #temperature records obliterated in 2023
2023. Surpass 2-degree Celsius target. A heat age.
By the chart: temperature rose half a degree in 60 years 1940-2000. Then rose double that in a third the time until now. If happens again, we’re at 4.5 degree Celsius by around 2030.
Earth likely briefly passed critical warming threshold on Friday
Friday was the first day on record to have a global average surface #temperature above 2°C when compared with preindustrial levels, emerged first from a dataset maintained by the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF).
In the summer of 2023, global sea surface temperatures reached record levels, and high temperatures are having a devastating effect on coral reefs #temperature

October 2023 was the hottest October ever recorded, following on from the hottest June, hottest July, hottest August, and hottest September. We're on track for 2023 to be the hottest year by a worryingly large margin.
According to recent news, Tokyo had temperatures exceeding 25°C for three days this month, which is unprecedented for November.
On Tuesday, November 7, the mercury in central Tokyo hit 27.5°C, breaking the record high temperature for November for the first time in 100 years.
Given the warmth of recent months, and the current El Niño, 2023 is now virtually certain (>99% likelihood) to become the warmest year ever directly measured.
In addition, 2023 is now very likely (90% chance) to finish at least 1.5 °C (2.7 °F) above our 1850-1900 baseline.
The abrupt warming in September – due primarily to Antarctica – came on top of already extraordinary warmth in August.
The Antarctic changes might simply reflect natural polar variability but it added to a system already greatly warmed by man-made and natural causes.
The strong warming in Antarctica this September could simply be a product of natural variability.
However, we note it was also coincident with a record low sea ice maximum and follows the 2022 Hunga Tonga eruption. The interplay of such factors remains to be determined.
The sharp uptick in temperatures since August is mostly due to warming in polar regions, especially Antartica.
This contrasts to the warming earlier in 2023, which was broadly associated with the El Niño transition and other changes in the tropics and mid-latitudes.
Both land and ocean individually set temperature records for September, with a well-developed El Niño, and almost no regions of relative cooling.
The warmth around Antarctica is especially sharp and contributes heavily to the increase in global mean since August.
The global mean temperature in September 2023 was 1.82 ± 0.09 °C (3.28 ± 0.17 °F) above the 1850 to 1900 average, continuing the run of extraordinary records.
This is highest anomaly ever measured for any month, and 0.50 °C (0.90 °F) above the prior September record.
September 2023 Temperature Update 🔥
Warmest September & largest anomaly ever measured, shattering previous September record.
Warming since August concentrated in polar regions.
Near certain that 2023 becomes the warmest year.
Likely 2023 exceeds 1.5 °C.

Since the end of June, the global average #temperature has been (much) higher *every day* compared to the daily temperature values for the past four decades (!), except for a few days mid August. Quite remarkable, given the day-to-day variations on each profile.
Soon after, the Justinian #Plague arrived (AD 541).
It would take 1.5 years for the sun to shine again, 8 for the plague to leave & until 560 for the temperatures to rise again.
1. Of course air #temperature has an impact on wildfires. Yes, hot days will not result in "spontaneous self-ignition" of a forest, but that was never the point. Bringing that up is a classic straw-man fallacy, and using it against climate change impacts is a logical mistake.
2. #Arson is not an argument against the impact of climate change. Global warming impacts both natural and human-caused ignitions.

This current period of record warmth is driven by a combination of man-made & natural factors.
The long-term trend is driven primarily by man-made global warming due to the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
On top of this we also see short-term swings due to natural variability, including that associated with the recent transition from La Niña to El Niño.
The recent extreme conditions have led to another upward revision to our forecast for 2023.
In addition to 2023 almost certainly becoming the warmest directly measured year, we now estimate roughly even odds that 2023 will be at least 1.5 °C (2.7 °F) above the 1850-1900 baseline.
Potentially exceeding – at least temporarily – the Paris Agreement target of limiting long-term global warming to no more than 1.5 °C.
During August, record warmth was particularly prominent in the tropics, as well parts of the Pacific and the North Atlantic.
13% of the Earth's surface was locally record warm in August, and 65 countries (mostly in the tropics) set new national-average records for August.
None of the Earth had a record cold monthly average in August (though a few parts of Antarctica were close).
Berkeley Earth's August 2023 Temperature Update
By far the warmest August since direct measurements began.
Warmest for both land & ocean.
Strengthening El Niño.
Nearly certain 2023 becomes the warmest year directly measured.
May see a +1.5 °C annual excess in 2023.
According to @MeteoSuisse and due to ongoing #heatwave the highest absolute maximum #temperature record was beaten yesterday, 23/08/23 at the Mont Aigoual station (1567 m), an emblematic station which was opened in 1895. The provisional maximum temperature observed was 30.3°C, beating 29.9 °C on 06/28/2019.
The prediction was made back in 1982 by ExxonMobil in private documents.
Did they care ? Obviously no !
🌡Global average temperature was highest on record for any month
🌡Global July temperature was near #ParisAgreement 1.5°C limit
🌡Heatwaves in many parts of Northern Hemisphere
