Exceptionally warm temperature spike seen across U.S., Canada, and UK
God’s Majestic Power
For the choir director. A Davidic psalm. A song.
“1 God arises. His enemies scatter,
and those who hate Him flee from His presence.
2 As smoke is blown away,
so You blow [them] away.
As wax melts before the fire,
so the wicked are destroyed before God.
3 But the righteous are glad;
they rejoice before God and celebrate with joy.
4 Sing to God! Sing praises to His name.
Exalt Him who rides on the clouds —
His name is Yahweh —and rejoice before Him.
5 A father of the fatherless
and a champion of widows
is God in His holy dwelling.
6 God provides homes for those who are deserted.
He leads out the prisoners to prosperity,
but the rebellious live in a scorched land.
7 God, when You went out before Your people,
when You marched through the desert,
8 the earth trembled, and the skies poured down [rain]
before God, the God of Sinai,
before God, the God of Israel.
9 You, God, showered abundant rain;
You revived Your inheritance when it languished.
10 Your people settled in it;
by Your goodness You provided for the poor, God.”
Like WAX that melts – Yahweh’s SCORCH PROPHECY remains in effect through the end time. ” but the rebellious live in a scorched land.” Look around you. What is progressively happening to this planet?
September 28, 2011 – LONDON – Met Office forecasters say the hot spell will last until Sunday after a weather system which usually bakes Greek and Turkish beaches was pushed thousands of miles northwest by high pressure. The warm weekend will represent the highest October temperatures for 26 years. Temperatures will peak from Wednesday to Sunday, with between 78.8F (26C) and 82.4F (28C) expected daily in the south, with up to 78.8F (26C) in the north and 75.2F (24C) in Scotland. The Indian summer means Britain will be hotter than Hawaii’s island of Kauai, which is forecast to only reach 80.6F (27C) this week, as well as parts of the Mediterranean, such as Athens and Rome, which yesterday were 80F (27). The warm spell represents highs well above the average maximum temperatures for autumn: September’s average is 63.5F (17.5C) while October is 56.5F (13.6C). It will also be a pleasant change from the summer, when July and August were both colder and wetter than normal. Coupled with the buffeting the nation received from the aftermath of Hurricane Katia, they combined to make, for many, the worst summer since 1993. This week, the Met Office said most areas will be dry, with Monday seeing pleasant temperatures before the hot air sweeps in tonight and the mercury begins to climb. Forecasters believe Sunday will be the last day of exceptional heat, before temperatures reduce gradually through the first half of next week while remaining warm in the south. The only rain likely is occasional showers tomorrow (Tues) along the west coast, with western Scotland seeing heavier rain on Wednesday and Thursday, and some showers in western Scotland and north-west England from Friday. Steven Keates, a Met Office forecaster, said: “Temperatures are on the up and will be exceptionally warm for the time of year from Tuesday, continuing until the end of the week at least. –Telegraph
Denver: Take along the shades, short sleeves and sunscreen today because Denver will flirt with record heat for the date, the National Weather Service said Sunday.

Canada – Penticton’s last great stand in summer weather may have gone out with a record-breaking bang.

On Sept. 24, Penticton airport measured the temperature at 32.3 C — blasting the previous bar of 27.8 C set on the same date in 1967. “On the 24th, it was 32.3, which is the all-time record for that day,” meteorologist Doug Lundquist said. –BC Local News
