Freakish Weather Down Under

Submitted by on January 11, 2013 – 7:53 AMNo Comment | 1,041 views

In a scene that would not be out of place in almost any movie script that takes place on an alien planet, Australia’s weather has put on a display that raises eyebrows even in meteorological circles.

According to The Weather Channel website

Western Australians witnessed a freakish dust storm off the coast of Onslow on Wednesday.

The stunning views were created as wind and rain caused the storm to dump the sand and dust it had ingested while passing Onslow, Bureau of Meteorology duty forecaster Austen Watkins told Australian Yahoo!.

He said storm gusts reached 75 mph about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and that such storms were normal for this time of year. Tug boat worker Brett Martin, who took some photos of the storm displayed above, told Yahoo! that he and his colleagues were west of False Island when the thunderstorm, which quickly strengthened and gathered dust, passed over Onslow and headed to the Indian Ocean.

“We were steaming along in the boat just before sunset and the storm was casually building in the distance, then it got faster and faster and it went from glass to about 40 knots in two minutes,” he said.

According to Perth Weather Live, the dust storm was not related to Tropical Cyclone Narelle, which was a couple hundred miles north of the dust storm location. Jonathan Erdman, meteorologist for The Weather Channel, was amazed by the images created by the Australian dust storm.

“In 18 years of meteorology, I’ve never seen a white shelf cloud capping the brownish dirt from the haboob. If there was a hall of fame for weather photos, this one would get in on the first ballot.”

Dust storms, or haboobs, are common in the U.S. Desert Southwest in the summer months. Thunderstorms form over higher terrain, but the dry air in the lowest layers of the atmosphere evaporates precipitation falling out of the thunderstorm, leading to strong winds at the surface, surging outward, picking up dust, instead of rain with a typical thunderstorm.

Australia’s searing heat has made news this week. According to Weather Underground’s Christopher Burt, Leonora topped out at 120 degrees Jan. 9, breaking that city’s all-time record.

Seriously, they call it a Haboob!

Actually an Arabic term for dense dust storms common to those regions, but these types of storms also occur in Australia and the south western United States. Australia has been experiencing newer and newer records in increasing heat waves for over a decade now.

I would like nothing more than the proof of various cryptids, alien civilizations, even alien visitors to be found. But that proof will come only through rigorous science and objective analysis, and by holding evidence to the highest standards of scrutiny. Born in south eastern Pennsylvania, i have found myself at one time or another living in Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh-Durham, on the island of Kaua'i and finally landed on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. I have turned my hand to various professions from early work in 3d graphics to historic building restoration, carpentry and log home building to working in a bronze art foundry on the WWII Veterans Memorial. Currently I am a writer, script writer and working for a non profit organization called Empowerment Through Connection which is involved in equine assisted therapy for veterans, at risk teens and women.
