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!

I'm in area that is ABOUT 20 miles northwest of storm line. I am not sure if the eastern line will hit us in Wake/Johnston Co. I'm not sure about the western lines either, but storms can pop up quickly so it's wise to say that we're not out of woods yet.

SOUTHEASTERN, NC (WECT) – A severe thunderstorm warning has been issued by the National Weather Service for northern Bladen and Robeson counties until 2:15 p.m.

According to the NWS, the radar indicates a severe storm capable of producing damaging winds in excess of 60 mph. The storm was initially located near Lumberton and is moving east at 70 mph.

If severe weather approaches your area, go inside a sturdy shelter away from flood-prone areas. A severe thunderstorm can produce large damaging hail, damaging winds in excess of 60 mph, deadly lightening and heavy rain.

A tornado watch has been issued for the entire viewing area until 8:00 Friday evening. A line of strong storms is expected to roll across southeastern North Carolina throughout the afternoon and evening hours.

The primary threat will be from damaging winds in the line of strong storms, but an isolated tornado could be possible.

Quoting Chapelhill:
The line of deep convection across SC,GA, and AL is limiting deeper mositure transport and higher dewpoints from advecting into NC and VA. We are also seeing a lot of high cloud blow off that is limiting some of the heating. No one out of the wood, but these are good signs.
Quoting TropicalAnalystwx13:

Not necessarily, the temperature here continues to rise despite the cloud cover. If we got any more moisture, I would seriously be freaking out right now, because these are spring-like values.

Nothing good coming out of this yet...


MCD #156 posted at comment 567 speaks to exactly what you two were discussing...

TORNADOES WILL BE POSSIBLE...PARTICULARLY IN ASSOCIATION
WITH ANY LEWP PATTERNS AND CONVECTION WELL IN ADVANCE OF THE FRONT
WHERE SFC WINDS ARE SOMEWHAT MORE BACKED RELATIVE TO THE WLY FLOW
ALOFT. UNCERTAINTY IN THE NRN EXTENT OF THE UNSTABLE SECTOR
EXISTS...AS WELL AS THE IMPACT OF MID/HIGH CLOUDS OVER CNTRL/ERN NC
AND NERN SC. HOWEVER...IN BOTH INSTANCES...INSTABILITY IS EXPECTED
TO BE SUFFICIENT...GIVEN THE MAGNITUDE OF FORCING FOR ASCENT...
SUCH
THAT A SVR/TORNADO THREAT WILL LIKELY EVOLVE.

Only the Sky knows what will be this afternoon and eve. My guess for now, watch for a thin line of trouble from Southcentral NC N-eastward toward the Virginia border.

Quoting TropicalAnalystwx13:

I don't believe this is the reason we're under a Moderate risk, I think another line is forming near the mountains of NC, and will track east.

I don't know...


my aunt just came home from work(NCSHP) and wanted me to brief her on the western portions of NC, cuz she goin to Waynesville.
