February 28, 2019, Back To The Deep Freeze, A World Without Clouds

Atmosphere:

A late winter snow system could bring some accumulation Sunday. It is too early to say how much. Some of the early buds and green shoots will be at risk as we return to the deep freeze early next week. Monday night’s low could be 9 degrees. The NWS in Louisville says we’ll get a light, wintry mix today. High near 38.

Art:

Henri Manguin (1874-1949) ” The Rocking Chair “
From Wikipedia:
Henri Charles Manguin was a French painter, associated with the Fauves.
Manguin entered the École des Beaux-Arts to study under Gustave Moreau, as did Henri Matisseand Charles Camoin with whom he became close friends. Like them, Manguin made copies of Renaissance art in the Louvre. Manguin was greatly influenced by Impressionism, as is seen in his use of bright pastel hues.

Thought:

A World Without Clouds

A state-of-the-art supercomputer simulation indicates that a feedback loop between global warming and cloud loss can push Earth’s climate past a disastrous tipping point in as little as a century. Read more in Quanta magazine.
