WASHINGTON, Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new NASA-funded prototype system developed by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) of Boulder, Colo., now is providing weather forecasts that can help flights avoid major storms as they travel over remote ocean regions. The eight-hour forecasts of potentially dangerous atmospheric conditions are designed for pilots, air traffic controllers and others involved in transoceanic flights. (Logo:...

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

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A research team from the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research in the Helmholtz Association (AWI) has evaluated 23 current climate models to assess their ability to predict the weather conditions for the coming year or even the next decade. They concluded that there is still a long way to go before reliable regional predictions can be made on these scales, as none of the models assessed is currently able to forecast the...

RedOrbit Meteorologist Joshua Kelly 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. So to understand this map we need to go over the lines first. The solid black lines that are going from west-east are known as isoheights which are lines of equal height. At 500mb we label these lines using three digits. For example if you look over by Seattle WA,...

Red Orbit Meteorologist Joshua Kelly Big Story Weather from April 5, 2012: Yesterday we saw plenty of severe weather move through the entire Southeast. Most reports were of wind damage along with large hail. Another major weather impact was the onset of frost that swept through the Northeast and Great Lakes which came with our Canadian High pressure center. Big Story Weather for April 6, 2012: Low pressure that has been causing all the problems in the Southeast is finally off the...

How To Have Your Own Backyard Weather Station

Joshua Kelly for Redorbit.com Red Orbit Meteorologist Joshua Kelly examines what makes up a weather station and how each instrument works. Here is a list of what type of equipment associated with a weather station. 1. Barometer: The barometer´s purpose is to measure outside air pressure. Air pressure can be recorded in MB or INS of mercury. Here is an example of each. -- 1013MB  or 29.92INS these are referred to as standard pressure of the atmosphere, when the numbers...

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
2012-07-17 21:51:43

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
2012-07-16 14:20:04

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...
