Every cloud has a silver lining: weather forecasting models could predict brain tumor growth Ever wondered how meteorologists can accurately predict the weather? They use complex spatiotemporal weather models, i.e. mathematical equations that track the motions of the atmosphere through time and space, and combine them with incoming data streams from weather stations and satellites. Now, an innovative new study published in BioMed Central's open access journal Biology Direct has determined...

In the study, UC Davis researchers compare seven different earthquake forecasts (including their own) that were submitted to a competition organized by the Southern California Earthquake Center. The findings should help researchers both develop better earthquake forecasts and improve their tools for assessing those forecasts, said Donald Turcotte, a distinguished professor of geology at UC Davis and co-author of the paper. The center launched the competition in 2005 based on a previous...

  Scripps researcher adapts global climate model to improve regional predictions "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows," Bob Dylan famously sang. But if you want to know how it will blow tomorrow, odds are you're going to check the forecast. Atmospheric prediction has improved immeasurably in the 45 years since Dylan sang "Subterranean Homesick Blues." Whether you're interested in tomorrow's high or the global heat index a decade from now, forecasters can...

U.S. weather forecasters predicted on Wednesday that last year's record hurricane season will be followed by another unusually busy one, with 16 named storms predicted this year. Colorado State University forecasters predict that nine of the named storms that will form in the Atlantic will develop into hurricanes. "We expect that anomalously warm tropical Atlantic sea surface temperatures combined with neutral tropical Pacific sea surface temperatures will contribute to an active season,"...

From farmers to government officials in charge of efficiently managing Earth's precious water and energy resources, people all over the world rely on accurate short-term climate forecasts on timescales ranging from a few weeks to a few years to make more informed decisions. But today's climate forecast systems have limited ability to operate on such timescales. That's because it's difficult to realistically represent the complex interactions between Earth's ocean, atmosphere and land surface...

A leading U.S. forecaster said on Wednesday that the threat of an above-average 2010 Atlantic hurricane season has jumped over the past month, saying this will be "a hell of a year." William Gray, the hurricane forecast pioneer who founded Colorado State University's respected storm research team, said CSU is ramping up its predictions fro the 2010 season, which is due out June 2. "The numbers are going to go up quite high," Gray told Reuters. "This looks like a hell of a year." The forecast...

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

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...
