New product allows you to explore record-setting extreme weather

We've launched a new extreme weather product this week: Record Extremes. Recent, globally record-setting years have demanded a product that combines U.S. and international record extremes into one, easy to use interface. The Record Extremes page will give you the option to see U.S. and international records on a map and table. You can select any combination of record types at once, which, combined with the map, provides a interesting visual way to investigate record-setting events. The product uses data from three sources: (1) NOAA's National Climate Data Center, (2) Wunderground's U.S. records, and (3) Wunderground's International records.

The NCDC records begin in 1850 and include official NOAA record extreme events for ASOS and COOP weather stations in all 50 U.S. states as well as Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Pacific Islands. In this database you can find records for maximum high temps, minimum high temps, maximum low temps, minimum high temps, snow, and precipitation on daily, monthly, and all-time scales.

The Wunderground extremes were compiled by our weather historian Christopher C. Burt. Chris monitors 300 stations across the U.S. for Record Extremes in maximum and minimum temperature, precipitation, and snow events. Most of these U.S. records go back to the end of the 19th century, though the oldest site in this database is Charleston, SC, where precipitation records started in 1737! Internationally, Chris monitors 150 countries worldwide for all-time record high temperatures and all-time record low temperatures. If you're interested in diving deeper into extreme weather in the U.S. and abroad, Chris's book Extreme Weather is an excellent resource.



Figure 1. All-time snow records broken during the Groundhog Day Blizzard of 2011. These records were found by selecting NCDC as the source, a start date of 2011-01-31, an end date of 2011-02-02, "maximum snowfall," and "all-time."


We built the Record Extremes product to make it easy to find specific records you're looking for, or just browse the records in general.

Check records that were set on a specific date
You can check on records that were set yesterday, for example, by setting the calendar to yesterday's date, and selecting all the record variables and types that you're interested in.

Explore all records set in a certain time range
2011 was a record-setting year for the U.S., and most of the records were high maximum temp and high minimum temps. To see all of these warm records that were set last year, select "NCDC" as the source, 2011-01-01 as the start date and 2011-12-31 as the end date. Select Maximum High Temp and Maximum Low Temp in weather variables, and select all-time in the record type.

View current standing international records in the Wunderground database
Select either the Wunderground International records, and instead of choosing a date range, select "Show current standing records." This will bring up all standing records in the database for whatever record variable and type you select. Whereas we've collected every record ever set or broken from NCDC, the Wunderground records are always the current, standing record, whenever it was set. As you move your map around the globe, you'll see each country's all-time maximum high temp and all-time maximum low temp.

Filter your table results
Looking for a specific location or record within your search results? Use the "Filter Results" option in the table to narrow down your search.

Let us know what you think!

@ KOTG,
That doesn't look like impacts from this system in the Bahamas before Sunday... or Monday.

Also forecast seems to be bringing several lows along a more northerly track for the time being....

Another newbie question:

I'm looking at the wundermap, and have Storm Tracking checked. Clicking on a particular storm gets an info box, and under Type it says Rotating Thunderstorm (W2)

Actually, there's several of these slated to pass over us%u2026 um, oh boy...

What does the W2 (or whatever letter/number) indicate?


Hi Weblackey,
Those letters / numbers are simply individual storm cell identifiers...
More info is listed under Wunderground's Radar FAQ's.

Best of luck, hope all those in your path pass without causing harm!

If you look at the April 16 event, you can clearly see the connection to deeper mositure to the south of NC. The cells in SC developed rapidly, and raced NE ahead of the main forcing. This was a key difference.

Today, the mositure transport has been cut off due to the convection that developed early, and continued to more east. The line of storms just moved through. 30 mph gust front, then 10 minutes of light/mod rain. No wind, lightning, hail. zippo!
yeah, the storms isn't looking strong on the radar. I meant that the radar look the same between April 16th and today, but I never said the conditions are the same. But thanks for explaining anyway :)

Thought they would have scrubbed, but weather hasn't been a factor; the Navy's MUOS 1 mobile communications satellite is being launched on an Atlas 5 from the Cape in under four minutes (http://www.spaceflightnow.com/atlas/av030/status. html)

The front's passage through Florida is pretty obvious; some temperatures in the Panhandle have dropped into the mid 50s, while temps in the mid to upper 80s are still the norm up and down the central east coast

I didn't know you were allowed to go into the lighthouses. I haven't been in one since Sand Key when I was a teenager. There used to be a house there. Part way up the structure. Sometimes when the sands would pile up, it was just walking up the dune to the house.


After they renovated it a few years back it was left unlocked. The ladder is extremely steep and the rails are about 4' apart. Also the treads are covered in frigate bird doo. Makes for a spooky climb for most. Haven't been to the light in a year or so though.

Took 4 different snow depth samples and got 5.56" for my average. The lake effect is supposed to kick up soon, and add a little, possibly making it the biggest snow event this winter for my location in southwest MI.

I didn't see it until after you posted it. I actually went to Sanford and checked on my grandparents. The damage in Sanford was massive (2nd floor of apartments were blown away and gone and Lowe's store was flattened into ball of metal). I thought it was EF4 damage at first, but it was still high end EF3 tornado. Sanford is still repairing itself as of today.

Wind is just getting all rowdy round here.

Power returns to Dowlen/Old Dowlen area
February 24, 2012 8:45 AM
Scott Lawrence Link

BEAUMONT - Wind gusts of more than 40 miles an hour contributed to a power outage in west Beaumont, but power had returned to most customers within an hour.

Entergy spokesman Dave Caplan told KFDM News wind gusts affected a power line with slack in it, knocking out power to more than 530 customers shortly before 8 a.m. Friday, including businesses in the Parkdale mall area. The outage was isolated to that area.


Power out at noon to Jasper and northern Jasper County
February 24, 2012 1:22 PM
Scott Lawrence Link

JASPER COUNTY - by KJAS - Power to the City of Jasper and most all of north Jasper County is out due to a problem with the large transmission line owned and operated by Entergy between Jasper and the Sam Rayburn Dam.

Jasper City electrical foreman Danny Wade said shortly before noon that crews with Entergy were working to feed power to the area through another transmission line that comes into Jasper County from Newton.

The outage occurred shortly after 11:30 a.m during a period of high winds.

And yesterday... at the lake. Sigh

02/23/2012 0400 PM

Lufkin, Angelina County.

Non-thunderstorm wind damage, reported by co-op observer.


Gusty southwest winds during the afternoon resulted in downed trees and power outages County wide.

This does not have the super-celliar setup the April 2011 outbreak did.


april 16th didnt either, started out as a line with heavy winds, then as it got away from the mountains the cells seperated and became supercells. radar was unbelieveable how quick they grew into tornadic monsters

The western line is developing the same way as the storms on April 16th did... except it's not as strong. But still impressive.
