Perth smashes 20-year rain record while Australia cops icy winds

  Perth smashes 20-year rain record while Australia cops icy winds A cold front is sweeping across the south-east with hazardous wind conditions to hit New South Wales on Wednesday while Victoria and Tasmania will see icy cold temperatures and even hail. © Provided by Daily Mail ( © Provided by Daily Mail ( Weatherzone meteorologist Craig McIntosh told Daily Mail Australia the rain in WA would ease up over the next few days but would return with the next front on Friday. 'There's been quite a lot of rain in Perth so flooding is possible overnight but there's a low chance,' he said.

A drought-stricken Northwest is forecast to see some high elevation snow this weekend with the arrival of cooler temperatures.

While heavy precipitation continues to drench the Southeast on Friday, the National Weather Service (NWS) said that a strong cold front would bring rain and some high elevation snow to the Northwest, even as a widespread elevated fire threat is possible from the Great Basin into the Northern and Central Plains.


"A strong storm system will bring heavy rain and even some high elevation snow to the Pacific Northwest/Northern Rockies this weekend. While this rain will be beneficial for a region that has seen hot/dry conditions this summer, isolated instances of flooding will be a concern," the NWS Weather Prediction Center tweeted on Thursday.

Super typhoon Chanthu threatens Philippines, Taiwan

  Super typhoon Chanthu threatens Philippines, Taiwan A super typhoon that rapidly formed in just 48 hours is threatening both the Philippines and Taiwan with destructive winds and torrential rains over the coming days. Over just two days, Chanthu's wind speeds went from 30 miles per hour to 160 miles per hour at their height.  Scientists have long warned that typhoons are becoming more powerful, and strengthening more rapidly, as the world becomes warmer because of man-made climate change. "This week, Super Typhoon Chanthu provided another stark example of how quickly a storm can strengthen," NASA wrote in an article about the storm on its Earth Observatory blog.

With the fall season beginning next week, AccuWeather meteorologists predict that there will be some "high-country snow in British Columbia and the Washington Cascades with the storm from Friday to Sunday" and that the jet stream pattern could amplify to the point to allow cooler air and moisture to "bring the first snow of the season to portions of the Rocky Mountains from Idaho and Montana into Wyoming, northern Utah and northern and central Colorado by early next week."

"If things pan out the way we believe from Sunday night to Monday evening, then snow levels could dip to 6,500 feet from Montana to Colorado," AccuWeather senior meteorologist Brett Anderson said in a post on the site.


Todd Rundgren SLAMS Kanye West as he recalls working on Donda

  Todd Rundgren SLAMS Kanye West as he recalls working on Donda Todd Rundgren did not hold back as he recalled working with Kanye West during the creation of the rapper's 10th studio album Donda, which was released in late August. Speaking to UCR, the 73-year-old musician labeled West a 'dilettante' and said he stepped away from the project in July due to lack of 'feedback' from West on his contributions.Later in the interview, Rundgren claimed that West's hurried approach to Donda stemmed from fear over his rap rival Drake 'one-upping him' with the release of Certified Lover Boy on September 3.

The region has seen little relief from the summer's life-threatening heat waves that killed more than 200 people across Oregon and Washington in June and damaged cherries grown in the Yakima Valley and the Northwest in late June and early July.

The NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information reported earlier this month that summer 2021 had essentially tied 1936 for the warmest summer on record.

"During meteorological summer (June-August), the average temperature for the Lower 48 was 74.0°F, 2.6°F above average, nominally eclipsing the extreme heat of the Dust Bowl in 1936 by nearly 0.01°F and essentially tying 1936 for the warmest summer on record," the agency wrote.

Temperatures in Montana and Colorado – which have remained in the 80s and 90s – will see a significant shift, Anderson wrote, with dips "10 [to] 20 degrees below average, and widespread rain showers are likely where it doesn't snow."

The cooler conditions are projected to aid thousands of wildland firefighters who are currently battling 77 large fires and complexes, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.

Where to see snow in Tasmania on Saturday as temperatures plummet to single digits .
It will be a return to winter on Friday, with the Bureau of Meteorology predicting temperatures to drop down to single digits and a flurry of snow that will cover the ground in some parts of the state overnight.The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) says a snow line will start at about 800 metres, lowering down to about 100 metres in the afternoon.
