Plenty of Rain Clouds But No Rain
Thursday - June 23rd 2016
Today in the Washington DC area we woke up to rain. It was heavy at times and anytime it rains in our area, you can bet that rush hour will be pretty bad for our commute to work. By 9:00 am the rain began to taper off and for the rest of the day we had heavy clouds under a blanket of grey skies.
I watched the NOAA GOES EAST weather map for the Mid-Atlantic region, at different times during the day http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/goes/east/ma/h5-mloop-rb.html and it showed rain clouds over Washington DC - ALL DAY LONG.
Under normal circumstances any meteorologist would point out the red/orange/yellow areas across the map and talk about the rain in our area.
But today that was not the case. The meteorologist did not mention rain at all. In fact - he did not even show this map.
And on his map - THERE WAS NO RAIN OVER THE WASHINGTON DC AREA !!!!!
I watched the 5:30 local channel 7 news and the local meteorologist showed the current weather map - but low and behold - THERE WAS NO RAIN OVER THE WASHINGTON DC AREA.
I went online at 9:00 pm this evening (June 23rd 2016) and copied the map below from Channel 7 WJLA TV. I then went to NOAA GOES EAST for this same time (or close to it) and you see the map above. Also - on my way home from work, I stopped at a convenient place to take pictures of or heavily burdened rain clouds. They are posted below.
Now who is right? NOAA or the Meteorologist?
What is going on here?
From what I understand (which is limited) the clouds need at least 2 things to produce rain 1) moisture and 2) lift. They need lift to reach a level cool enough to trigger rain (this level of cool is called dew point). If the clouds have no lift they can not rain.
And so that's what happened.
We have plenty of rain clouds today, and even now, (See pictures below) but the clouds could not get lift because they were heavily burdened with the aerosols that coats the sky grey, You know the sprays I've been writing about. We'll, in spite of the rain clouds, the atmosphere is saturated with these chemicals that are sprayed from planes and they lay like a blanket above the rain clouds.
I'm posting pictures of today's rain clouds that are corrupted by chemical aerosols. What gets me is the deceit. Why deceive us about the condition of our environment. We are reasonable people. If the rain is so much that there will be flooding, we will move. Why try to control it? What if you miss? We are heading for a rude awakening. Wake up. Something is amiss!
