Climate Change:Record-breaking snow across the US Record-breaking snow across the US

Over the past few weeks the United States has been pounded by a number of big snow storms. A week ago Washington DC received 18 inches of snow, setting a number of records.Oklahoma City hit a record with 14 inches of snow. Dallas-area received its first snowfall on Christmas Eve since records began in 1898. The snowfall also broke Christmas Eve records for Minnesota’s Twin Cities by over two inches. Twenty-three people were killed so far due to the extreme weather across the middle of the country.

While scientists say that it is not possible to link a single extreme weather-event—such as one record snowfall—directly to climate change, a pattern of increased heavy precipitation is expected due to climate change in the US.

    We have switched to a cooling PDO, Artic oscillation has just switched negative and we have a quiet sun. These are all natural cycles and were looking at colder wetter for the next 20 – 30 years.
