Record snowfall in Dayton, OH

Facebook Twitter

Dayton International Airport recorded 1 inch of snow yesterday, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs. This breaks the previous record of 0.2 inches set in 1917.

However, this is not the earliest snowfall of an inch or more, she said. That record was set Oct. 19, 1989, with a total of 4.8 inches.

  1. There is still enough ice left that the effects aren’t being felt so this is a temporary *pause*.

    I blame planet X because Global Warming is happening on other planets of our solar system like Mars and Venus.

  2. Actually I looked further into research and they are right that the snowstorms are part of Global Warming because when the earth warms it creates an increase in moisture content which has to fall back to the earth and then the clouds *cool* it off though night time temps will be bumped up.

    There still is enough cold air left that the increase moisture content comes as snow in some locals which is why southern areas are still getting high and dry with no end to the drought.

    I just don’t agree with it being man made as too many factors are likely involved the IPCC models are too dumb to look at but then again you have to agree in order to get looked at.

    I admit the whole system is fked up but if you want to get you’re foot in the door in the science community you have to AT LEAST HINT at man made Global Warming SOMEWHERE in you’re research then they will accept you a bit grudgingly if you are not a fanatic but you’ll be accepted nontheless.

  3. Send some to the Pacific Northwest to get us out of the stagnant weather pattern nobody seems to see please!

    Also send some to Texas too so they can have four seasons again!

  4. Heavy snowfall hit several regions of Russia. This has led to a dramatic increase in the number of traffic accidents. In Perm 255 accidents were recorded, one and a half times the average daily rate. The level of snowfall in some places was close to 10 millimeters. The pavement in the city remained in very poor condition. Three people were injured. In the city stands many kilometers of traffic jams. (translated with Google). With video
    In Tyumen, because of the elements in just 2 hours there were more than 50 accidents. Drivers generally do not respect the distance.
    In Yekaterinburg night utilities have taken 200 tons of snow . The city also has numerous accidents . And the same reason – the car owners do not have time “to change their cars with snow tires”. Items stored on the tire line, the record is two weeks in advance . Cleaning of roads continues.

  5. Weather patterns are now similar to around 1900. the down (colder) slide is happening more quickly than the up side. We recently experienced a time similar to the 1930s when the US Midwest had a severe drought (dust bowl) and major hurricanes slid up the east coast to devastate NY. Already we are seeing weather numbers similar to 30 or 40 years before that. What goes up comes down, often it comes down rapidly.

    1. A possible cause for the faster lowering of temperatures this century, than what it took to create the warming of the XX century, is the recently observed low cloudiness, for many reasons.

      It could be due to more retention of water by plants, the recent increase in CO2 could be a factor in the relative dryness of the atmosphere in recent years,

      or it could also be caused by the declining magnetic field of Earth,
      “.. Given that cloud coverage has been tracking AAM (atmospheric angular momentum), it’s safe to say that a change in atmospheric circulation is related. If you’re looking for the forcings responsible … [all] you need are extremely minor perturbations to the background nucleation rate (to form droplets of water), which can be modulated by many various electrodynamic phenomena. This is why the weakening planetary magnetic field is such a big deal …”

      I believe this trend is reversing due to the low level of solar radiations,
      “… there is also a remarkable correlation between solar activity (specifically the solar flux) and the specific humidity of the mid-upper troposphere… “


      Another component would the fact that we are in the downward phase of the interglacial, as evidenced by the fact that the maximum temperatures happened some 4,000 years ago

      Therefore, it’s more “natural” now for temperatures to go down than up.

  6. The article seems to contradict itself;”Record Snowfall” then “That record was set Oct. 19, 1989, with a total of 4.8 inches.”.
