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!

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...


Maybe nothing good, but it's not nearly what it could be. I would be much more concerned w/ dp in the upper 60's to low 70's with more Sun. I'm just pointing out real conditions, and not trying to feed the hype that the blog is creating. No one is denying the fact that their will be severe weather.

MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0156
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
1143 AM CST FRI FEB 24 2012

AREAS AFFECTED...NERN SC...CNTRL/ERN NC...ERN VA...SRN MD

CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...TORNADO WATCH LIKELY

VALID 241743Z - 241915Z

THE THREAT FOR SVR STORMS WILL INCREASE ACROSS NERN SC...CNTRL/ERN
NC...ERN VA...AND SRN MD EARLY THIS AFTERNOON...AND A TORNADO WATCH
WILL LIKELY BE REQUIRED BETWEEN 18Z AND 19Z.

A WARM/UNSTABLE SECTOR WILL CONTINUE TO EXPAND NORTHWARD TOWARD NRN
VA AND SRN MD THIS AFTERNOON AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT CURRENTLY
CROSSING THE APPALACHIANS. CONVERGENCE ALONG THE FRONT AND
INCREASING PRE-FRONTAL LARGE-SCALE ASCENT -- INDICATED BY SFC
PRESSURE FALLS AROUND 2 MB PER 2 HRS -- WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT
CONVECTION BOTH ALONG AND AHEAD OF THE FRONT. A VERY STRONG
MID-LEVEL JET CORE CROSSING THE REGION WILL CONTRIBUTE TO EFFECTIVE
BULK SHEAR MAGNITUDES EXCEEDING 60 KT...WHICH WILL PROMOTE BANDS AND
CLUSTERS OF FAST-MOVING THUNDERSTORMS CAPABLE OF PRODUCING
WIDESPREAD DAMAGING WINDS. WITH 0-1-KM BULK SHEAR MAGNITUDES OF
30-45 KT...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.

These are forecast highs for the Mid-Atlantic region. Hardly what one expects to see in February:

hot!

And here are Florida's forecast highs for today:

hot!

Jacksonville NWS says this will probably go down as the hottest winter day ever for that area. (Records have been kept since the late 1800s.)

Quoting Patrap:


It was forecasted to drop fast from the NWS NOLA office

Strong cold air advection will also develop behind the front
today. 925mb temperatures will fall a good 15 degrees celsius
between this morning as this colder airmass moves into the area.
Daytime highs will actually occur this morning...with gradually
cooling temperatures expected through the afternoon hours. As
skies clear Saturday night and winds die off...especially over
inland areas...expect temperatures to plunge into the middle to
upper 30s over northern zones...with middle 40s more common south
of Interstate 10. Cool temperatures will continue into Saturday as
well...with highs only rising into the lower 60s...or about 10
degrees below normal.


What are you at currently? dewpoint 40's?

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.

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.

In my school right now, but my class is in free time so I got a chance to check the weather. My classmates were very concerned about the storm and I told to not stress about it since it wasn't that great of chance for tornadoes in my area. However, the comments from my classmate got me wondering so I checked SPC again. I see they updated from Slight Risk to Moderate Risk, and I knew it's going to get really ugly here at crossroad of I-40/I-95. Will be back on here in 2 hours.

Afternoon. Temporarily lost my Weather-Tap subscription this morning due a financial "glitch" and will back online tomorrow.... Glad Yall are posting radar loops for the frontal passage and possible tornadoes for Florida. Tallahassee NWS just issued a tornado watch for the Florida Big Bend. Keep me posted........... :)
