Climate Forecasts In The Long Term Need Work
2012-12-07 08:13:29

A research team from the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research in the Helmholtz Association has evaluated 23 current climate models to assess their ability to predict the weather conditions for the coming year or even the next decade.

In this lesson we are going to look at special features which are found on weather maps. The map we are going to look at is from 500mb. That is roughly about 18,000ft above the ground.

Weather Pack For July 30, 2012
2012-08-01 12:22:59

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...

Surface Weather Map Features for July 5, 2012
2012-07-05 10:00:03

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...

Weather Map Identification

It is very important to understand what you are looking at when working with weather maps. In the image above we are looking at surface wind barbs. Surface wind barbs help us to identify which direction the wind is blowing and also the speed of the wind. If we look in the Northern Gulf of Mexico just to the south of Mississippi we see a wind barb in blue. This wind barb is from the East and it has two full wind barbs which tells us the wind is from the East at 20kts. If you look along...

Surface Weather Map Features

Looking at the weather map above we can see that we have three and four digit numbers on the map. These numbers are known as Sea Level Pressure. They are recorded in MB. Looking at the Northern part of South Dakota we see a number at 995mb while over parts of Maine we see the number closer to 1020mb. So we would say that high pressure is over Maine, while low pressure is over the Dakota’s as our MB numbers show. A surface pressure map can be very useful to a weather forecaster in many...

Weather and Forecasting
2012-04-24 18:30:02

Weather and Forecasting is a scientific journal published by the American Meteorological Society (AMS). It features articles on forecasting and analysis techniques, forecast verification studies, and case studies useful to forecasters. It also features submissions on changes to the suite of operational numerical models and statistical post-processing techniques, and articles that demonstrate the transfer of research results to the forecasting community.
