The Weather Thread

Postby San Lumen » Fri Feb 11, 2022 6:14 pm

The weather is something that effects every one of us every day no matter what from the temperature to rain or hurricanes. Any weather related event is eligible to be discussed here.

It can be fascinating subject and climate change has an impact on it. My idea for this thread is too discuss weather events around the world as well as possibly current weather in your area. Historical weather events can be discussed too.

Here is a good thing to start with: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclone_Batsirai

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2022/2/1 ... ses-to-120

Cyclone Batsirai made landfall in Madagascar with winds of 145 mph and is responsible for at least 122 deaths in the island nation along with Mauritius. The damage in the town of Nosy Varika has described as like its been bombed.

Whats is the weather like in your area currently and have any major weather events occurred recently?

Haven't had anything like that here in Wisconsin. However, we are nearly twenty or thirty inches (depending where you are) below our yearly snowfall amount with no sign of that changing. Even though that sounds bad, the worst year for snow was during the winter 1967-68, and during that year we only got ten inches all year. This year we have gotten roughly fifteen inches.

It's mid-February and my air conditioner is on.

I find consistently sunny days depressing. The pale greyish pallette of a rainy or cloudy day is far superior to harsh sunlight and sharp shadows everywhere.

Spent my honeymoon in Bancroft. Lovely country. Weather just about as bad as ours. Cold one day, rainy the next, sunny and warm following.

That's also the weather weather we are experiencing now in Texas.

I actually agree. I much preferred Bay Area weather. I got three climates in one day, it was great. Here it's just 'warm' and 'hot.' For two weeks you have to wear a jacket. Maybe. If you're out at night. Meh.

Would you rather have 25 degrees and 86% humidity, or 40 degrees and 35% humidity?

What's better? A winter which ranges between 10 and 15 degrees (5 if you're very unlucky) and is somewhat damper than summer, or a classic Chicago winter?

What's the best kind of weather?

You are a tennis or cricket fan. It might rain. Do you want it to?

You are inside. There are no windows. It's been an hour. It is Auckland. Do you think the weather is the same as when you entered the building? Related: are you an idiot if you don't have an umbrella?

Is the reason why the weather makes for great small talk is that it (a) affects everyone, (b) affects everyone differently and (c) therefore creates endless conversational possibilities, or is it that the weather is consistent and therefore so mundane as to be incapable of sparking strong feelings, let alone conversation?

Stop making shit up, though. Links, or it's a God-damn lie and you know it.

We have some snow in the forecast today but since the system is well offshore it’s only going up being about two inches or so.
