Storm to Lash Central US With Flooding, Snow and Severe Weather


Alex Sosnowski, AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist

3 hrs ago

A child shields himself from torrential rains with his jacket as he runs through a flooded dirt street while local residents, left, sweep mud and water out of their shacks in the town of Tuman, 820Km north of Lima, on March 17, 1998. At the time, health authorities reported that flooding caused by the meteorological phenomenon 'El Nino' has exacerbated poor sanitary conditions in the poorest parts of Peru, provoking outbreaks of cholera, malaria, dysentery and conjunctivitis.

Gov't forecaster maintains outlook for strong El Niņo this winter

One of the storms from the western United States will produce a swath of drenching rain, snow and severe weather over the Plains, Mississippi Valley and Great Lakes this weekend.


While the central United States will remain in the midst of tranquil weather into the second week of December, a major storm will take shape during the second weekend of the month.


According to AccuWeather Chief Meteorologist Elliot Abrams, this will be a dynamic storm as it swings from the West into the Central states.............

Wonderful. SIL and her hubby making the haul from the Bay area to Tennessee via I-40, with UHauls in about two weeks.

I'm thinking dog sleds.....

Winter is late here. No complaints unless this keeps up another month. that will mean Jan and Feb are going to be bugger bears.

The I won't tell you it is currently 58 degrees and partly sunny here.

We're due for the rain early this week along with night time freezing temps.

Extreme weather 'could kill up to 100,000 a year' in Europe by 2100
Sat, 05 Aug 2017 - Weather-related deaths will spike by 2100 if nothing is done to curb climate change, scientists say.
Quote:
Extreme weather could kill up to 152,000 people each year in Europe by 2100 if nothing is done to curb the effects of climate change, scientists say. The number is 50 times more deaths than reported now, the study in The Lancet Planetary Health journal said. Heat waves would cause 99% of all weather-related deaths, it added, with southern Europe being worst affected. Experts said the journal's findings were worrying.


Flooding near the Bavarian village of Deggendorf in southern Germany in 2013

If nothing is done to cut greenhouse gas emissions and to improve policies to reduce the impact against extreme weather events, the study by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre says:

* Deaths caused by extreme weather could rise from 3,000 a year between 1981 and 2010 to 152,000 between 2071 and 2100
* Two in three people in Europe will be affected by disasters by 2100, against a rate of one in 20 at the start of the century
* There will be a substantial rise in deaths from coastal flooding, from six victims a year at the start of the century to 233 a year by the end of it


Fire rages through an area of woodland in Artigues in south-eastern France

The research analysed the effects of the seven most dangerous types of weather-related events - heat waves, cold snaps, wildfires, droughts, river and coastal floods and windstorms - in the 28 EU countries as well as Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. The team looked at disaster records from 1981 to 2010 to estimate population vulnerability, and combined this information with predictions of how climate change might progress and how populations might increase and migrate. "Climate change is one of the biggest global threats to human health of the 21st century, and its peril to society will be increasingly connected to weather-driven hazards," said Giovanni Forzieri, one of the authors of the study. "Unless global warming is curbed as a matter of urgency and appropriate measures are taken, about 350 million Europeans could be exposed to harmful climate extremes on an annual basis by the end of the century."

Paul Wilkinson, a professor at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, who was not involved in the study, said the findings were "yet another reminder of the exposures to extreme weather and possible human impacts that might occur if emissions of greenhouse gases continue unabated. "It adds further weight to the powerful argument for accelerating mitigation actions to protect population health."

Parts of Europe struck by strongest heatwave of the summer
Saturday 5th August, 2017 - Several part of Europe are experiencing the most extreme heatwave in more than a decade.
Quote:
With temperatures hitting 44C, several countries in the region have issued health warnings as the record-breaking weather conditions continue to affect many parts of the continent. While the heatwave has left some regions facing the threat of severe drought, in other parts it has sparked wildfires and in Italy and dozens of towns and cities are on the health ministry's maximum heat alert. In parts of Europe - where temperatures have reached potentially dangerous levels - health warnings are in place.

Until Friday, authorities in 11 southern and central European countries had warned residents and tourists to take precautions amid the brutal heatwave that has been nicknamed Lucifer. As scientists warned that worse was still to come, the European forecasters’ network, Meteoalarm said that authorities in countries including Italy, Switzerland, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Bosnia, Croatia and Serbia were on red alert, and swaths of southern Spain and France are on amber. In many places, temperatures hit or exceeded 40C and the heatwave became the region’s most sustained since 2003.


Many countries put emergency services on standby and people have been asked to “remain vigilant,” stay indoors, avoid long journeys, drink enough fluids and listen for emergency advice. So far, two deaths from the heat have been reported - one in Romania and another in Poland. Many people have suffered from sunstroke and other heat-related conditions. Overall, Italy and the Balkans are the most severely affected, even though areas as far north as southern Poland are also exposed to unusually high temperatures. According to authorities in Italy - where temperatures are 10C higher than the average for this time of the year - hospitalisation rate currently stood at 15 percent above normal and people in affected regions were asked only to travel if their journey was essential.

Polish officials meanwhile warned of possible infrastructure failures. In Albania on Friday, the country's armed forces joined hundreds of firefighters to battle dozens of forest fires as temperatures reached 40C. Albania has sought emergency assistance from the European Union to help prevent the wildfires spreading near the capital, Tirana. South-east France meanwhile will continue to swelter, with night-time temperatures above 25C in some parts, and in Spain, weather warnings are in place across Mallorca, Minorca, Catalonia, Ibiza and Malaga. Temperatures are also above normal in parts of Greece, Croatia and Hungary. Meanwhile, the high temperatures have also led to massive frustration among holidaymakers due to the long delays at airports.
