Winter storm JONAS East coat of USA Jan 2016

23rd Jan 2016…JONAS ..3rd biggest winter storm since 1869

reports the Courier Mail in Australia ( 25th jan 2016)

EAST COAST OF USA

http://www.attn.com/stories/5388/2016-winter-storm-jonas-east-coast

From nth Carolina to New york and as far west as kentucky

On saturday the3 23rd jan 2016 New york had 63.4cm of snow

that is close to the record of 68.2cm in 2006 the record for single day snow fall

This event also coincided with a high tide flooding beaches in cape Bay new Jersey

EARTHS CLIMATE LINKED TO JUPITER / SATURN and the SOLAR SYSTEM BARYCENTRE.. Discussion open

TOM MANGO has undergoing research on this topic. Here are a few of his latest graphs showing some key cycles that are open to link to earths climate
His email is
tlmango10@gmail.com




TOMS EXPLANATION..
The first graph is the sixtyoneyear graph which contains equ(3) in orchid.
If we perform peak-to-peak analysis on equ(3) using every fifth peak we will extract a 2208 year (Hallstatt) cycle.
Notice that the Hallstatt has a 144 year wave oscillating on it (second and fourth graphs).
I discovered this wave but I named it after Pierre Bretagnon.
This peak-to-peak analysis simply measures the change expressed in terms of mass.

Now… If we analyze every fifth peak we find there is actually five combinations (not demonstrated in the graphs).
So… There is actually five overlapping Hallstatt cycles produced, each separated by a phase of ~441.6 years (2208 / 5).
One of the five Hallstatt cycles was in agreement with the Damon and Sonnet 14C data.
I chose the one that was in agreement and that is the fourth graph.

The third graph is a climate projection based on the work of others.
Here I’ve made a huge discovery involving the ~1000 year millennial cycle.
In my model minimums advance along a 914 year wave and these minimums re-occur at ~1000 year intervals.
So…. the next minimum scheduled to repeat itself is the Oort minimum, which should happen in 2070.
It was later that I discovered the Bretagnon wave and that the millennial cycle was really 1008 years (144 x 7).

KEEP TUNED for discussion and please feel free to ask tom questions here

SYDNEY..Wettest start to January 2016 on record

NSW floods: Record rain brings chaos to Hunter amid search for missing sailor

EXTRACTS

A home is surrounded by floodwaters in Raymond Terrace.

A photo gallery of 17 photos from this link

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-01-06/nsw-weather-heavy-rain-flooding-hunter-downpours-forecast-sydney/7069792

” Dozens of residents in Raymond Terrace were ordered to evacuate, where the Hunter River broke its banks.

…On Tuesday night residents were evacuated from low-lying parts of the flood-ravaged town of Dungog,where wild weather led to three deaths less than a year ago.

..The BoM said the rainfall had broken weather records.

“In Newcastle, Nobby’s [weather] station recorded the wettest three-day rainfall total for January, and that’s records going back to 1862,” senior climatologist Agata Imielska said.

“They had 273.4 millimetres for the last three days.

“In fact, the wettest day was 200.6 millimetres and that was recorded over 24 hours to 9:00am to January 6 this year (today) — so that’s the wettest January day on record there.”

UK FLOODS…DECEMBER 2015

 

“The River Irwell and River Roch have both overflowed, causing flooding in Salford, Manchester city centre and Rochdale.

Roads in central Leeds, where a severe warning is in place on the River Aire, are also under water.”

“A 200-year-old former pub located on a bridge over the River Irwell was destroyed by flooding at Summerseat, Greater Manchester”

WEST YORKSHIRE

 

MYTHOLMROYD under water

BELOW..Much of the 200-year-old watering hole in Summerseat was washed away as heavy rains triggered floods in parts of northern England.

South Australian heatwave. December 2015.

16th- 19th DECEMBER

KEN KATO
“The all-time record for most number of December consecutive days with 40C or above

I belive Ken is talking about Adelaide. Read on:

Some information from weatherzone forum extracted from the 19th DEc 2015

http://forum.weatherzone.com.au/ubbthreads.php/topics/1353803/2

‘kg007’said”One record equaled today, 6 days straight of 35c plus for December, equals record set in 1898!

and
“Adelaide now has recorded four days in a row of 40c plus, just peaked at 40.4. Breaking record set of 3 days in 1898 and 2007.”
and
“Some new December records set today Clare 41.7, Pt Pirie 44.8, Snowtown 44.9!”
and
“Port Augusta can be added to the list has hit 46.4 previous record 46.1!”
and
“Scratch that, Pt Pirie now 45.4, Snowtown 45.2 more than 1c above previous records!”
and
“Pt Pirie at 45.6, previous record 44.0!
Whyalla hit 45.5, previous record 44.9!”
and
“Port Augusta new record 47.2, previous 46.1!”
and
“Edinburgh has equaled its December record with 43.5c!”
and
“Whyalla has new record of 45.8, previous 44.9!”

KEN KATO
“The all-time record for most number of December consecutive days with 40C or above was broken though.
BLAIR TREWIN
“The most impressive record I’ve seen so far is Snowtown’s, where 45.2 is a December record for old and new sites combined (data back to 1908). The current Port Augusta site is a fair bit hotter than its predecessors but 47.2 is still an impressive number.

“Adelaide Top 5
Hottest December days

1. 44.2…31st 1904
2. 43.9…29th 1931
3. 43.4…19th 2013
