NHEMI Snow Cover Inventory Up 10%...Cryosphere Busy Making Up for Lost Time

Over @ Global Warming heretic Joe D/Aleo/s blog...these NHEMI snow cover charts come courtesy of Dr. Bob 'CoolWx' Hart of FSU fame...

The graphic on the left depicts the areal NHEMI snow cover...which is now 10% > CLIMO (1996 - 2005)

The upper part of the chart on the right shows a comparison between 'CLIMO' and 'Observed' snow cover. Note the lines cross in the upper right corner. The lower part of the same chart shows the trend in magnitude of the snow cover/s deficit / surplus.

Dr. Joe expects hi-latitude arctic air masses to visit the Lower 48 come JAN '08 resulting in big forecast busts for NOAA and PWSPs.

NEWxSFC looks forward to his forecast verifying in spades.
