NASA’s Greenland ice complete meltdown claim: The scientific hoax of the year

On one hand NASA calls it ‘unprecedented’ and in the same breath they acknowledged that it happened last in 1889. It seems all what NASA was trying to say it is ‘unprecedented’ from the point of merely satellite data which was available only from 1979—for a period of 32 years

Will rain washout the London Olympic Opening Ceremony? UK Met Office pits itself against Piers Corbyn

London Olympics Weather Forecasting Duel: UK Met office leads Piers Corbyn 1-0

This is part of our continuous coverage of the on-going duel between the UK Met Office and Piers Corbyn on the accuracy of their weather forecasts during the Olympics.
The UK Met Office promises dry and shiny weather all through the Olympics while we have Piers Corbyn, astrophysicist and owner of Weather Action who predicts a damp and rainy.  

The UK Met Office took a 1-0 lead but only just. The organizers of the London Olympics also got very fortunate with the weather for the opening ceremony. A rainstorm passed overhead before the ceremony began, but it left as quickly as it came, and that was it. Talk about lucky breaks, especially when you build an open-air stadium in London in the summertime.
By 8:45 p.m. in London, 15 minutes before the Ceremony was set to begin, the rain had stopped. At 8:55 p.m., it started again. On and off and on and off.
Considering that Piers Corbyn made his forecasts more than 40 days in advance, this was forecasting at its really best and he could be considered a trifle unlucky for missing the mark by a whisker the very first day of the Olympics.
But the race is not over. In fact, it has just begun with 15 days left for the Olympics. And Piers Corbyn apparently holds the edge in the rounds ahead.

Synoptic Situation as on Thursday,26th, Night:

The Monsoon Trough runs through from Pakistan Punjab in the west thru Rajasthan (Jaipur) ,North MP and Jharkhand.
As a result, precipitation was fairly active from North Pakistan and the region North of the axis. In HP, Kangra recieved a heavy downpour of 115 mms. Utteranchal recieved very good rains and Jharkhand too had good rains last 2 days.
This was a result of an embedded UAC in the axis over Jharkhand.

Weekend Estimate: Friday, 27th, Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th July:

Friday: The Monsoon trough remains roughly in the same position. The off shore trough off the west coast remains weak.
Rainfall will be heavy in Western MP. Rainfall will also be concentrated in West UP, and the Delhi-Kanpur corridor could recieve some heavy showers. North AP coast, around Srikakulam and Vizag regions get precipitation.
Precipitation along the west coast will be medium, stations getting between 20-40 mms.

SaturdayRainfall will be concentrated in Western Rajasthan and Central UP regions. Jaipur gets a good thundershower.

Sunday: In all probibility, an embedded UAC in the axis could bring very heavy downpours to Western and Southern Rajasthan regions. The Eastern end of the trough may host an UAC b Sunday.
Parts of UP could get good rains.
West coast rains decrease, as trough weakens.

Come 27th July, the London Olympics kick off with its Opening Ceremony. Weather can play a spoiler.

Indian Monsoon: What's brewing in the Pacific is more likely a Modokai than a normal El Niño

Just when it looked as if a traditional El Niño was getting its sea legs, the event is now looking a bit less canonical.  This prompted the following analysis. This post is jointly written by Rajan Alexander who administers the blog Rajan’s Take: Climate Change and Rajesh Kapadia who administers the blog, Vagaries of the Weather.

If we take a look at last week’s US-CFS v2 forecasts for Niño regions 1+2 it could be observed that the warmest anomalies have been centred in the eastern portion of the ENSO monitoring area.

However, also seen in the forecast, there is now more of a potential for the temperatures to be much lower. One explanation is that the Niño maybe dying off!!  The only other explanation is that the heat is merely transferring westwards - a fact validated through the latest Sea Surface Temperatures (STT) departures.

Till recently, it was thought that the El Niño had only one mode - a periodic warming in the eastern tropical Pacific that occurs along the coast of South America. In 2004, it was discovered to have also a second mode that occurs around 12% of the time.

A Japanese team led by T. Yamagata (that included a prominent Indian climatologist, Dr Venkata Ratnam) noticed the 2004 El Niño was warming more strongly in the Central Pacific region and accordingly stumbled on the discovery of its second mode by sheer accident. They called such an El Nino as Modokai, which is a classical Japanese word which means similar but different”.  The phenomenon is also known as a Pseudo or Central Pacific (CP) El Niño.
