Latest Atmospheric thermodynamics Stories
Noctilucent clouds (NLCs), tenuous cloud-like phenomena that form every summer in the skies above the North Pole, are forming earlier than usual.
To investigate how air pollution and natural emissions, which are pushed high into the atmosphere by large storms, affect atmospheric composition and climate, NASA’s DC-8 and ER-2 science aircraft will take flight over the southern US this summer.

A new How WBGT Measures Heat Stress report has been published by KestrelMeters.com, the leading providers of Kestrel wind and weather meters recently announced. Troy,
Innovative sensors bring "smarts" to homes and help conserve water and energy through monitoring of temperature, humidity, light levels, soil moisture, frost and water temperature directly

The coming heat of the summer months means an increase in the risk of wine evaporating from storage barrels.
According to a new study, a koozie is your beer's best defense against condensation and humidity, two factors which work together to gradually warm your beverage.
The temperature near the Earth's core is approximately 10,800 degrees Fahrenheit a team of scientists has determined. This is 1,000 degrees hotter than in a previous experiment conducted 20 years prior.
Surface Dew-points can play a huge role in weather forecasting. The first such role is that it helps determine the amount of moisture in the atmosphere for a given point. If we look at the current dew-point map above from January 28, 2013 we can note several things of interest. First, if we look at where the black circle is around the number 70, we can make note that this air right off the coast of Texas is at a dew point of 70F. The temperature outside must be above 70F, because the...
Weather Pack is our way to envision what is happening with the weather and create a weather forecast for a certain area of the United States. Today’s focus is on Southwest Mississippi along the Mississippi River. On the left side we have a Skew-T which is used to help us determine what is happening in the upper levels at our forecast location. On the right side is our morning satellite image; both of these features are important to creating an accurate forecast. The Skew-T will show...
The morning weather map for July 5, shows us the current surface pressure readings. Surface Pressure is very important from a meteorological stand point. We use this to help us identify where our surface pressure centers are just like you see above. Our Low pressure area is over Northeast Colorado and also the High pressure over the Ontario area. Surface pressure is taken hourly from the stations and they are also mostly done on a 24hr basis, however some places will only submit their...
The map above shows our dew-point temperatures which is an important temp when it comes to weather. The dew-points help us determine how much moisture is in the atmosphere. If we look at the circle placed over Southern Mississippi we can see temps in the Mid 70’s. That is considered to be very saturated and humid type of weather. When you walk outside it feels very uncomfortable. While if we look back in Nevada we see 15, this is more respectful of being very dry air. This type of air also...
So why is there so much heat and humidity rising up into the Northern Plains creating a surge of hot weather? The answer is in the weather map above. If we look over Lake Michigan we see an area of High pressure which has a clockwise flow over the region. So places on the East are having cooler weather as they are getting the air from Canada pushing down towards them. North Dakota into the Gulf Coast are on the back side of the high so there air is coming from the Gulf of Mexico. If...
