I can’t find a link to anything on line, and there may not be one. On one of the financial channels, I THINK it was Fox Business but could have been CNBC, there was an interview with Joe Bastardi. He was “talking weather” (an important thing for a lot of traders and investors). Not making any political or non-weather points. Just doing his weather thing.
In the “happy talk” part of Q&A the interviewer asked something about expected cold from a blizzard on the way, and Joe went into one of his wonderful ‘this is how it works and why I am saying this’ expositions. Seems he’s expecting a LOAD of cold to come down toward Montana with temperatures, IIRC, like 30 F below normal at the same time there will be temps like 20 F above normal down toward the South East.
When these two collide, things are to get wild.
He said, roughly, “This is like the wild weather we got back in the 50’s and a 60’s, the last time we had a shift from a warm period, in the ’30s and ’40s, to a cold period.” and then went on to say things about how it was going to make a lot of interesting weather as we go into a long term cooling.
All I could find at the WetherBELL site was a report on the expected blizzard, not the discussion of the collision or the extra cold Montana. Then again, I’m rushed now and don’t have the time to search a lot. If anyone finds it, please post a link.
The blizzard report:
Winter weather looms over the southern Rockies, spreading through the southern and central Plains. A strong storm is leading to snow threats from northeast New Mexico into the Texas panhandle and through Kansas, prompting numerous Blizzard Warnings, Winter Storm Warnings, and Winter Weather Advisories.

FWIW, I think another epic battle between hot and cold forces is also shaping up. That between the histrionic “Warmista Climate Scientists” and the much more pragmatic “It’s Gonna Get COLD!” Weathermen… oh, and the Meteorologists too ;-)
Did find a nice video of the weather report at Accuweather.com
The link I found is this one:
but what looks the same to me is this link it gives if you click on the ‘share’ button:
But still not finding the Joe comments… It may be in his upscale and priced services for folks like, oh, news networks ;-)
This was at mid-afternoon today, as I was running between the TV room and the laundry, so I only caught part of it in passing. I don’t know if that talk was the same blizzard as in the video (happening now) or if he was talking longer range prediction.
At this point we have a very clear A / B comparison shaping up.
Joe (and some other Meteorologists) saying COLD, and for a few years.
“Climate scientists” saying “Hot, Hotter, Hottest!!! PANIC!!!!”.
It will be pretty easy to see who has it right, and very hard to hide.
Weathermen are used to this. Climate guys, not so much. ;-)
