Contrary to what some posters have reported, England and Wales have actually had the most rain this summer in 100 years. It is almost incredible what some people have said was happening in the UK this year.

As Hurricane Isaac batters the Gulf Coast, some experts are warning that the storm could threaten more than levees, power lines and gas prices.
Isaac's high winds and rains, they speculate, could also stir up remnant crude oil from the BP's Deepwater Horizon spill -- exposing more residents and wildlife to its potentially toxic effects.
"This is another disaster on top of the hurricane that we're going to have to deal with," Garret Graves, chairman of Louisiana's Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority, told The Huffington Post. "The threat is not insignificant."
Up to 1 million barrels of oil are estimated to remain in the Gulf of Mexico. That oil remains, Graves said, because BP has failed to clean it all up in the more than two years since the tragedy. "That's four to five times the oil that was spilled with the Exxon Valdez," he added.
In total, an estimated 4.9 million barrels of oil spewed into the Gulf of Mexico when the offshore rig exploded on April 20, 2010. As HuffPost reported on the spill's two year anniversary, some people, particularly children, may still be dealing with chronic coughs, headaches and other effects of exposure to contaminated air, water and seafood.
Graves fears the hurricane could spawn another wave of similar health issues.
He also noted that hurricane clean up could be complicated by the oil. Debris from a destroyed home, for example, could become hazardous waste and need special, more expensive disposal, rather than simply going to the landfill.
"The frustrating thing is that this could all have been entirely prevented," said Graves. "We've known all this time that oil is there, but BP has not been proactive in trying to remove it."
Mitchell Roffer, president of Roffer's Ocean Fishing Forecasting Service and an adjunct professor at the Florida Institute of Technology, shares Graves' concerns about the storm dredging up the old crude. "This is something that we talked about way back in May following the gulf spill," he said.
Roffer and others then argued against the widespread use of chemical dispersants to combat what would become the worst oil spill disaster in U.S. history.
"All it was doing was putting oil at the bottom of the ocean -- out of sight, out of mind," Roffer said. "I strongly believe that there is going to be some oil coming back up from submerged depths, into the water column and onto beaches."
The idea that oil deep on the ocean floor could be stirred up by a tropical storm is debated, though a growing body of research does support the possibility.
"Winds will push water away from the center of a storm, which causes an upwelling as the ocean tries to adjust," said Nick Shay, professor of meteorology and physical oceanography at the University of Miami. "It brings whatever is near the bottom up higher in the water column and currents can then push it towards the coast."
His research team has found upwellings from prior tropical storms as deep as 1,500 feet. Crude oil settled at such dark, cold depths tends to break down slower than oil closer to the surface.
Robert Weisberg, a marine scientist at the University of South Florida, follows the work of Shay and others. He, too, sees "no reason not to believe" that Deepwater Horizon oil will resurface. "We will know pretty soon," he said. "Isaac will do his own talking."
Less controversial is the potential rise of oil buried in the sand or near the shore of Gulf beaches as the hurricane bears down on the coast.
"That's the most obvious way that the oil might come back into the public eye. Erosion could expose and churn up tar balls and tar mats," said John Amos, president of the nonprofit SkyTruth, where he is urging the public to post photos of oil pollution in the wake of Isaac.
Water surges could also flush water out of marshes -- where BP oil is known to have traveled -- and back into the coastal areas. Sea turtles, added Roffer, would be among the many that could suffer the consequences.
"This is the time of year that these little baby turtles hatch," he said. "Oil is not health food for anyone."

I know what you’re thinking, I must be crazy right? Though plenty of scientists would agree with you, two companies are touting their ability to create rain from clouds that would normally produce none. This process is barely understood by the scientific community, and has yet to become proven science, nonetheless these devices are being field-trialed around the globe as we speak. Most people are unaware that weather modification by cloud seeding has gone on for years, and even less are aware of this new technology. Here is an infographic from LiveScience showing the differences between cloud seeding and cloud ionization:
Meteo Systems – WeatherTec
Australian Rain Technologies (ART)
Aquiess Global Rain Project
In 1990’s, MIT’s Atmospheric Laboratory conducted field trials in non-conventional weather modification technologies.
Through further studies, atmospheric researchers developed a theory that identified macro‐scale weather chaos as ‘the key’ to influencing weather. During late 1990′s an independent research team in Australia stumbled on an ‘atmospheric mechanism’ whilst exploring origins of this theory (link). Experimental trials revealed that “small amounts of electromagnetic energy, applied intelligently,” could force change into weather, based on atmospheric sine wave patterns. This research culminated in the development of an atmospheric resonance technology, represented by Aquiess International (aquiess).
Electromagnetic wave forms are utilized to deliver signals toward a target weather system, that may be as remote as beyond the visible horizon. Proprietary technologies which draw upon data from locally applied hardware and software as well as disparate sensors, are deployed to modify the patterns forming ‘oceanic corridors’ that deliver rain. Scientific analysis ofaquiess’ results, shows what is described as ‘resonance technology’, has both a vast reach and incremental scalability.
The core technology and primary IP are protected by treaties and strict security protocols which surround the project. Source: Aquiess: Technology

Within a week, Mother Nature delivered an earthquake and a major hurricane to the northeast section of the United States. We are not sure what side she is fighting on, but she needs to back off a bit. Irene, a hurricane with a girl’s name, packed a punch like a roller derby queen and WHACKO-TV was there to cover the news. From live coverage from elected officials telling us how bad is was going to be, to our French report Jean-Paul out there in the trenches to show us how bad it really was.

Louis Black once said that the best job in the world would be the weatherman in San Diego, “How’s the weather today Bob?…Nice.” Now I don’t want to put down our local meteorologists [the new way to de-sexify weatherman], but our people who handle the weather have their work cut out for them and they should get paid more than the same people in San Diego where it’s nice.Louis Black once said that the best job in the world would be the weatherman in San... more
I have to say that most of my commute experience has involved Muni with a short 3 month stint having to drive from San Francisco to Burlingame. Of those two experiences I’d have to say the commute to Burlingame was the worst because it involved 280, 380 and 101. Commuting to Marin is much different and I learned that highway 101 has a dark and a light side, but with the opposite meanings applying.I have to say that most of my commute experience has involved Muni with a short 3... more

Video taken along what is commonly called the Sky Highway
In Tak, flash floods triggered by days of heavy rain
caused mudslides in several villages in Mae Sot, Umphang,
Phop Phra, Tha Song Yang and Mae Ramat districts.
Mudslides blocked some sections of the Tak-Mae Sot
and Mae Sot-Tha Song Yang roads.
In Mae Sot district, huge amounts of mountain
runoff flooded Mae Sot municipal areas. Many houses,
shophouses and markets were submerged.
Traffic police closed all main roads in municipal areas.
Damage would reach several tens of millions of baht as the
flooding had also hit the main business area, observers said.
In Phrae, three houses at Ban Huay Rong in Rong Kwang district
subsided yesterday following runoff and land subsidence.
No deaths or serious injuries were reported. Authorities o
rdered the evacuation of residents to safer areas due to the risk of mudslides.

Us Brits are obsessed with our weather, and as the UK baked at the start of the week with uncharacteristically hot weather and bright sun thanks to the influx of wam air from Spain's beaches, talk inevitably turned to how long it'll last.
Sadly, not long.
Forecasters warned that thunder and rain showers will bring the sunny spell to a halt, with the earliest storms reaching the UK on Monday evening.
The south west already saw rain on Monday, with thunderstorms in south east England and East Anglia overnight.
With temperatures hitting 31C in central London, many have been basking in the sun over the weekend and at the start of the week. Though prolonged sunny spells are still expected this week, they'll be interupted by occassional showers.
According to Sky's weather presenter Isobel Lang:
"High pressure will build in from the southwest across Britain and Ireland during the remainder of the week with temperatures returning to normal.
"Southeast and East Anglia will be last to freshen up but will feel more comfortable from Tuesday night onwards as the humid air eases away.
"The fine weather is set to last into the weekend for eastern parts but the west will probably turn wet, and there's a more unsettled trend for all into the following week."Us Brits are obsessed with our weather, and as the UK baked at the start of the week... more
