    Mudslide traps 500 tourists in Canadian ski resort
    Montreal (AFP) Feb 2, 2020 -
    Some 500 tourists were trapped inside a ski resort in western Canada on Sunday after a mudslide destroyed the access road, local media reported.

    Heavy rains knocked loose mud and debris, and the ensuing mudslide washed out about 0.6 miles (one kilometer) of the only access road to the Sasquatch Mountain Resort, the British Columbia transportation ministry said in a statement.

    It said that clearing the road could take five to six days and urged local residents to stay at home while they waited for the work to be completed.

    "We're pretty much at the mercy of Mother Nature," said Shelby Lim, a resort manager, in an interview with the CBC.

    She added that the resort, which is about 60 miles east of Vancouver, had lost power due to inclement weather but had backup generators.

    Lim also noted that the vacationers could leave the resort via a helicopter service, which cost about $150 per person.

    About 100 people had used or intended to use the helicopter service to leave, the CBC reported, but the rest had decided to stay put and wait for the road to reopen.

    A mudslide suggests conditions aren't all time to be stuck there....

    Verifying forecasts for major stratospheric sudden warmings
    https://www.terradaily.com/reports/..._major_stratospheric_sudden_warmings_999.html

    A stratospheric sudden warming is perhaps one of the most radical changes of weather that is observed on our planet. As numerical weather prediction models have improved, including better representation of the stratosphere, an extensive amount of studies have been investigating forecasts for major stratospheric sudden warmings (MSSWs), which affect all layers of the atmosphere, changing wind circulation patterns and space weather effects like the aurora.

    etc

    Sounds like the extremes of this season's NH's (extreme +AO) effects and our Southern Winter (MSSW) just past look to be poking the scientific bears in the labs, finally.
    IMO, get the Strat warming forecast dialed and you have vastly more depth in understanding the complex connections of the atmos.

    Brown study definition
    The expression "brown study" is a fourteenth century British term that started out meaning a dark melancholy mood, but later came to mean a state of thinking deeply about something. Before the two words were ever commonly used together in language, brown was used to describe something dark and sober while being in a study meant daydreaming.
    English dictionary definition of brown study. n. A state of deep thought. n a mood of deep absorption or thoughtfulness; reverie n. deep, serious absorption in thought. - Gloomy meditation or melancholy..

    Their latest textbook is up for pre-order sale - has a 500 citation bibliography. Their information is worthy of consideration, considering how other scientific discoveries are seeing the electrical nature of...nature. This is not a plug thing...just a mention about information out there.

    Mexico has had a big couple of days with Tornados of late. Note the multiple touchdowns while someone casually films...

    Warm in the middle east at the moment. Multiple days this month have exceeded 50C in various places around Iraq and Kuwait.

    Baghdad 51.8C yesterday was a record for them.
    Basrah also 51.8 on the 20th. Only 51.4C in Basrah yesterday so must have been a sea breeze.

    Not bad for 51 degrees north.
    I know there are a few places here that could not match this. For shame.

    Hold finger on the proximity of where you want the reading and then select ‘sounding’ (last selection, I think)

    Wow Death Valley knocked really punching knocking out the 130F (54.4 degrees for us). I'm sure though if marble bar wasn't perched as high it'd be a good challenge for death valley. The weird things about these places are that they aren't actually too far from the ocean, another place is can list is Afar, Ethiopia.

    I think modest altitude and latitude works against Marble Bar..... more likely heat records in those low lying and near coastal locations around Lake Eyre Depression and SA/WA Great Australian Bight region.
    Having said that, can't discount coastal Pilbara / Gascoyne either.....

    Gascoyne area with a delayed monsoon usually feels like the most likely challenger for 50+ to me but no station there (I don’t think). So it has to be somewhere like Onslow on the off chance the sea breeze can be held back.

    Twitter seems to think this Death Valley number yesterday is the highest reliable temp ever recorded. Can’t trust the pre-WW2 measurements?

    The July 1913 recording is regarded as possibly unreliable due to 'over exposure' ie the siting, or device used at the time not quite up to the WMO standards of the modern era

    So every time I whinge about the heat in Darwin, a mate in Phoenix, Arizona tweets......
    "97F just after 9PM MST after adding another day to seemingly unstoppable records.. 115F in Phoenix breaks the daily record of 113F and is day 12 at/above 115F, day 42 above 110F, and day 24 w/ an overnight low at 90/ above 90F."
    Bloody Hell !!

    And, unbelievably given the near record cold and snow in the South East, an AWS at Yampi Sound, a Defence facility up on the Kimberley coast has just set a new all time Australian record maximum temperature for the month of August ( a winter month ) 40.7c ( 105.3f ) today. Quite a few local monthly max temps records for August have been broken in the North this month.
