Happy Valentine’s Day from Climate Viewer News! Please share these forecasts to help raise awareness of our current radiation fallout situation from the Fukushima accident, and other nuclear anomalies. This is the Fallout Forecast for the next 48 hours for the USA. The previous forecast and subsequent monitoring of rad levels showed correlation to high-med risk areas, although several radiation monitoring sites had to be utilized as the import feeds from the EPA were interrupted again.
Currently, NETC and Radiation Network show a mix of rising levels in SoCal, as well as east of the Mississippi and on the eastern seaboard. The past few days there have been significant spikes in the Denver area, as well. Both screenshots are from 3:15-3:20 this afternoon, est.
This weeks winter storm Pax wrecked havoc for Southern, Mid Atlantic and Northeastern states. The latest storm, Quintas, will drop snow from St Louis through the Ohio Valley starting tonight, and continue on towards the east over the next 24-36 hours. As this system moves into Maine, forecasters are saying another 12-18 inches of snow are
possible for the area as well as high winds. The back-to-back storms are causing a nightmare for travelers as well, as airlines canceled a record number of flights today. Inclement weather has also contributed to many accidents on roadways, one incident in PA involved over 100 cars.
Current listings for flight cancellations can be found at FlightAware.

As much as I try to avoid snow and cold, I will be going out into the woods today to practice shooting my new pistol-grip crossbow (thanks to a tip from Kevin M. Allen #masterofmanythings)! This Valentine’s Day, please share love, caring, and concern for your fellow man, then regardless of the outcome, it will be OK.
I love you all ~Christina
