Global Surface Warming Stalled By Pacific Trade Winds - For Now
2014-02-10 10:32:18

The strongest trade winds have driven more of the heat from global warming into the oceans; but when those winds slow, that heat will rapidly return to the atmosphere causing an abrupt rise in global average temperatures

In research meant to highlight how the destruction of the Amazon rainforest could affect climate elsewhere, Princeton University-led researchers report that the total deforestation of the Amazon may significantly reduce rain and snowfall in the western United States, resulting in water and food shortages, and a greater risk of forest fires.

El Nino Update July 5, 2012
2012-07-05 11:03:00

Say it’s not so, but we could be very well on the verge of entering into an EL-Nino cycle soon. How soon? The latest forecast issued by the Climate Prediction Center has upped the chances of seeing EL-Nino this year now at 61% with the favorable time period pointing towards the 3rd quarter (July-September).  What does this mean to you? Well it all depends on where you’re living as EL-Nino has a wide array of impacts that are different everywhere around the globe. Here are a few...

Polar Watch For Aug 29- Sept 4
2012-09-05 08:00:17

A look at the temps from the 4th show that another colder pocket of air is moving into the region. Aug 29: The max temps warmed to 1C, while the overnight lows dropped to 0C. Aug 30: A burst of colder air was over the polar cap as high temps only made it to -3C, and the overnight lows dropped to -6C. Aug 31: Brought a touch of warmer air back into the region as high temps rose back to 1C, while the overnight lows hit -2C. September 1: High temps again rose to 1C, while overnight lows...

Weather Pack For September 6, 2012
2012-09-06 08:00:38

Today on Weather Pack we are going to examine the surface wind around a mature low pressure system, which means that the low pressure has an occluded front associated with it. Yellow Star: The forecasted surface winds would be out of the Northwest as the flow behind the low is counter-clockwise. Green Star: Anyone that is forecasting for the green star would be looking at the winds coming from the South-Southeast just right ahead of the warm front of the low pressure system. Red...

Many forecasters new and old run across certain things that just don’t get picked up in the weather models that we use to prepare our weather forecast. This is why I have created weather guides for anyone that is getting ready to or just wants to find out more about the weather in their area. (Here are a few forecaster guide tips to helping prepare a better weather forecast) Elevation: North: Look for a gradual rise. South: Look for no major elevation changes. West: There is a...

Winds Impacted By The Cycles Of ENSO
2012-09-03 16:44:02

When it comes to wind, more and more people are turning to it as alternative option for electricity. One has to wonder what kind of impacts would be created by the different cycles of ENSO. The above graph has been done for Boston MA. The month of choice was to run it for March of all three cycles. Normal Cycle: (When we are in between EL-Nino and La-Nina) winds averaged around 0-5mph 9% of the month of March. While 6-10mph average winds occurred more often with 35%. And then winds in the...
