Alan Buis, Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Kimm Fesenmaier, Caltech Of all the factors that influence Earth's changing climate, the effect that tiny particles in Earth's atmosphere called aerosols have on clouds is the least well understood. Aerosols scatter and absorb incoming sunlight and affect the formation and properties of clouds.

Weather Model Discussion:  How To Use Surface Dew-points For Weather Forecasting Purposes
2013-01-29 08:53:47

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 Education - Orographic Thunderstorms

In the United States we would find these types of thunderstorms on the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains and also on the western slopes of the Appalachians.

The above map looks at what is known as ceilings. The definition of ceilings is the first broken or overcast layer of cloud cover in the atmosphere. For it to be considered a ceiling the clouds need to cover more than half of the sky. If we look at the red circled area we see the numbers of 1 and 2. This tells us that there is a ceiling at 1,000-2,000ft which are in the level of low clouds such as cumulus or stratus. The second is the black circle found in the Dakota’s. Here we are...

Cumulus-nimbus Clouds
2014-01-11 00:00:00

The image above shows a Cumulus-nimbus cloud that has an anvil top to it. The reason that can be identified is that the cirrus is in place above the center of the storm. The image below does not have an anvil top yet. The anvil top forms on CB clouds after they reach the height in the atmosphere where they begin to feel the upper level winds becoming too strong for them to continue development vertically. The storm on the right has not felt the upper level winds yet, that is why it lacks the...
