Giant ice balls wash ashore on Lake Michigan……

Photographer Ken Scott referred to the bizarre floating objects he discovered washing against the shore of Lake Michigan recently as “winter wonders,” and that they may be.

But in weather terminology, they’re merely called ice balls, which sometimes grow to become ice boulders, which resemble giant floating rocks.

New Mexico….Next storm blows in….

This afternoon’s commute may get a little dicey as the rain will move in about lunchtime and then turn to snow later in the afternoon. Much of the northern part of the state could get a significant amount of snow.

Wind will also be a factor.

As always, be prepared and check before you head out.

Here’s the local forecast from the National Weather Service

Today: Scattered rain showers, mainly after 11am. Partly sunny, with a high near 55. Windy, with a south wind 5 to 15 mph increasing to 20 to 30 mph. Winds could gust as high as 40 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%.

Tonight: A 10 percent chance of snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 27. West wind 15 to 20 mph decreasing to 5 to 10 mph in the evening.

Tuesday: A 10 percent chance of snow showers. Partly sunny, with a high near 38. Breezy, with a northwest wind 15 to 20 mph increasing to 20 to 25 mph in the morning. Winds could gust as high as 35 mph.

Arctic front brings heavy snow to Northern N.M…..

ALBUQUERQUE — Northern and central parts of New Mexico have been struck by an arctic front, bringing in heavy snow and causing road closures.

The Department of Transportation reported heavy snow around Chama and Tierra Amarilla on Sunday. Officials say heavy snow along Interstate 25 from Glorieta Pass to the Colorado border also forced some motorists off the road. Santa Fe officials reported multiple accidents on Interstate 25 and that part of the interstate was closed due to bad weather.

The National Weather Service reports a winter storm warning remains in effect for parts of New Mexico until early Monday.

Oklahoma is so hot that street lamps are melting

Highs of 115 degrees are taking its toll on the nation’s heartland

It’s hard to not be concerned with global warming when its effects are right in front of your eyes. Sure, it’s one thing when the ocean begins to reclaim islands, but when you can see the effects in your home town, well, that’s another story altogether. Case in point: KFOR TV in Stillwater, Oklahoma is reporting that temperatures are so high that the street lamps have begun melting.

To be sure, Stillwater is suffering from one heck of a heatwave. It’s expected to reach 115 there today, 108 on Friday, and 109 on Saturday. And warmer temperatures are nothing new: July represented the 23rd month out of the last 28 that came in warmer than average.

It’s possible the heat itself isn’t responsible for the event — it’s being reported on Facebook that a nearby dumpster fire may have been the cause of the melting plastic light housings. Still, that dumpster fire was caused and aggravated by the record heat and dryness. And if dangerous, spontaneous fires aren’t reason enough to go green, we don’t know what is.
