Snowstorm paralyzes transportation system in Oslo, Norway

Snowfall in Oslo

Oslo’s bus system shut down, trams weren’t running, some trains stood still and Norway’s gateway airport at Gardermoen, north of Oslo, finally had to close. Warnings had been issued about Thursday’s snowstorm, but it proved to be more than transport systems could handle.

The blizzard that began during the night and built up during the morning had dumped more than 40 centimeters of snow on the southern coastal town of Arendal by midday. Some areas reported more than 60 centimeters and it was still coming down. Streets that did get cleared were covered with slippery snow again within minutes.

At Oslo’s main airport at Gardermoen, the snow was falling so thick and fast that the airport’s army of plows were out in force trying to keep the runways clear, but without much luck. “And when we have plows on the runways, planes can’t land or take off,” airport spokesman Joachim Wester Andersen told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).

Final Weekend of March Will Make the U.S. Northeast Shiver With Record Low Temps

For portions of the East, spring’s changeable temperatures are on full display this week.
On Monday, record cold daily highs were set in Montpelier, Vermont (19), and Watertown, New York (21), among other locations. Bangor, Maine (4 degrees), and Binghamton, New York (10), each tied a daily record low Tuesday.

Then, milder air moved in for midweek. Highs on Thursday reached into the middle 70s in Washington, D.C., while Philadelphia warmed into the 60s. Farther north, Boston topped out in the middle 50s. That said, these more comfortable temperatures were accompanied by rain and clouds.

The latest chapter of this up-and-down temperature story will have you grabbing your coat again in many eastern cities this weekend. This is due to a sharp dip in the jet stream that will force cold air from Canada all the way into the Deep South. In fact, freeze watches and warnings have been issued for Tennessee, as well as parts of North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Arkansas for Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Below is a look at just how cold it will get this time around.

Forecast: Cold Weekend Ahead


Friday:
High temperatures will be up to 20 degrees below average from the Great Lakes into the Ohio Valley. In the Southeast, temperatures will be 5 to 15 degrees below average. Chicago may struggle to reach 30 degrees, while Detroit holds in the 30s. The blue shadings on the maps to the right show the areas where temperatures will dive below late-March averages from Friday through the weekend.

Saturday: Lows in the teens and single digits will dominate the Great Lakes, from western New York to northern Ohio, northern Indiana, Michigan, northern Illinois and Wisconsin. A freeze is possible as far south as northern Georgia, northern Alabama, Tennessee and western North Carolina. A few record low temperatures may be set as well, including Indianapolis (current record low is 21) and Nashville (current record low is 23).

Highs will be 10 to 20 degrees below average from the Southeast, including northern Florida, to parts of the Ohio Valley, Great Lakes and Northeast. Portions of the Great Lakes and interior Northeast will hold in the 20s or 30s. Some cities in the South such as Nashville, Tennessee and Raleigh, North Carolina may not rise out of the 40s. Atlanta will likely hold in the 50s on Saturday afternoon.

Sunday: Lows will be 10 to 20 degrees below average in much of the East. A freeze is possible as far south as Tennessee, North Carolina, northern Georgia and northern Alabama. Lows in the teens and 20s will be widespread in the Northeast. A few locations in the Southeast and Northeast will flirt with daily record lows on Sunday morning including (current record low is in parentheses): New York – JFK (26), Washington, D.C. – Dulles (20), Charlotte, North Carolina (26) and Macon, Georgia (30).

Highs will be 5 to 10 degrees below average in parts of the East.

Since the jet stream dip is transient and will not stay locked in across the East, the cold air will quickly push out for the start of next week.

On Monday and Tuesday, most areas east of the Mississippi River will see temperatures within a few degrees of average for the final few days of March.

A Record Cold February-March?

Several cities in the Northeast are now flirting with a record cold February through March period.

Through March 23, Hartford, Connecticut, Worcester, Massachusetts, and Providence, Rhode Island were crushing their current record coldest February through March periods, as noted by a tweet Tuesday from the National Weather Service forecast office in Taunton, Massachusetts.



If the current trends hold, Boston would have its coldest February through March period in 130 years, when Grover Cleveland began his first term as President.

Similarly, New York’s JFK and LaGuardia Airports, as well as Bridgeport, Connecticut, would also set their record coldest February through March, if the trend continues through the end of the month.

Records for those three locations date to the mid- to late 1940s. Impressively, this February through March may be colder at both LaGuardia Airport and Bridgeport, Connecticut, than the infamously cold late winter/early spring of 1978, according to the NWS forecast office in Upton, New York. With a longer period of record dating to 1869, this would only be the fifth coldest February through March in New York City’s Central Park.  – Weather.

Dozens of goats killed by snow and cold temperatures in Lebanon

In the heights of Almtalala and Mount Khan and Alwastany, the snow reached 20 cm (8 inches) deep. This led to the siege of thousands of cattle on farms scattered in those areas, and dozens of goats were killed in the villages of Rashaya (Lebanon) by the snow and low temperatures.

In Rashaya Shawki al-Hajj, snow fell over mountainous areas above 1,100 meters (3400 feet), covering the ground with a white crust between 3-5 centimeters deep, especially in the villages of Ein Atta , Yanta, Deir Ashayer, to Baia, Mivon, Sultan Yacoub, BCAA, Ain Arab. The snow quickly melted.

The Mount Hermon Heights (2814) and other high locations, including the sites of international separation between Syria and the occupying forces (UNDOF), saw further accumulations on top of the snow which already measured five meters (more than 16 feet) deep. On some slopes hidden from the sun, the snow stood about eight meters (more than 26 feet) deep. – Tayyar. [Translated]

Coldest winter for two decades in Canary Islands (Spain)

Mount Telde, Tenerife, covered completely in snow.

The winter that ended last week has been one of the coldest in the last two decades, however, only three fell snowfall during the season, the most intense in early January. But it was with the arrival of spring when registered the heaviest snowfall but only in Tenerife and La Palma.
The gusty wind that blew on Sunday prevented, surely, that snow curdle Monday at the summit of Gran Canaria although, according to Jesus Agüera, director of the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) in the Canary Islands, “snowflakes snow itself must fall. ” So the snow will curdle he explained, “has to fall so serene,” something that the weather did not allow the morning and Monday morning.

Where if it materialized and probably says Aguera, with greater intensity and lower levels than in previous months was on the summits of Tenerife and La Palma. Climatology Service has not yet crossed the data to certify how much snow fell and where [yesterday held in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria World Meteorological Day], but by looking at the Teide and Las Cañadas and the Roque de Los Muchachos It is enough to get an idea of ​​the size of the snow. Especially since, unlike the three occasions when it snowed last winter (November to early January and mid-February), on these two islands congealed flakes 1,600 meters, becoming visible on the slopes of both islands.

Yesterday were still closed by snow and ice in the driveway accesses to Las Canadas del Teide and the cable car still did not operate by snow, but also by the wind, which was blowing yesterday, although with less intensity than on Monday, when recorded gusts of over 100 kilometers per hour. In La Palma, highway Roque de Los Muchachos was closed, but in the morning the snowplows were working machines.

Yesterday was the north wind blowing, and the rain made an appearance in many parts of the islands, but temperatures have begun to rise. In the coming days the air rolará north east, bringing an improvement is expected in thermometers ahead of Easter.Canarias7. [Translated]
