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!

AND BREVARD COUNTIES. SLIGHTLY LOWER WIND SPEEDS CAN BE EXPECTED
FROM OKEECHOBEE COUNTY TO THE TREASURE COAST. THESE WINDS WILL MAKE
OPEN WATERS ON THE INTRACOASTAL WATERS AND INLAND LAKES VERY
CHOPPY...WHICH CAN TIP OR SWAMP SMALL CRAFT.

.SMOKE IMPACT...
SMOKE MAY SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE VISIBILITIES ALONG I 95 IN NORTH
BREVARD COUNTY NEAR TITUSVILLE DUE TO A LARGE SMOLDERING WILDFIRE.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
WEATHER AND OCEAN CONDITIONS WILL PRODUCE AN ELEVATED THREAT FOR
RIP CURRENTS AT THE BEACHES OF EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA TODAY. ALWAYS
SWIM WITHIN SIGHT OF A LIFEGUARD.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
A SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FOR OFFSHORE WATERS NORTH OF
SEBASTIAN INLET. ELSEWHERE SMALL CRAFT SHOULD EXERCISE CAUTION OVER
THE OPEN ATLANTIC DUE TO SOUTHWEST WINDS 15 TO 20 KNOTS. SHORT
PERIOD WIND WAVES WILL PRODUCE CHOPPY CONDITIONS OVER ALL THE WATERS.

.FIRE WEATHER IMPACT...
STRONG AND GUSTY SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL CAUSE CONTROL PROBLEMS WITH
ANY NEW OR EXISTING FIRES. DUE TO A DRY LAYER OF AIR ABOVE THE
SURFACE MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES MAY FALL CLOSE TO CRITICAL
VALUES THIS AFTERNOON.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
STRONG AND GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS BEHIND A COLD FRONT WILL PRODUCE
HAZARDOUS BOATING CONDITIONS SATURDAY WHILE A COMBINATION OF WIND
AND DRIER AIR WILL INCREASE THE FIRE THREAT OVER LAND.

...

...EASTERN GULF STATES THROUGH SOUTHERN/MID ATLANTIC COAST...
DEEP LAYER SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW IS ALREADY STRONG THROUGH MUCH OF THE
WARM SECTOR OF THE BROAD DEEP CYCLONE CENTERED OVER THE LOWER GREAT
LAKES. AND MODELS INDICATE FURTHER INTENSIFICATION IS LIKELY
TODAY...AS A SIGNIFICANT MID-LEVEL SHORT WAVE IMPULSE CONTINUES
LIFTING OUT OF THE OHIO VALLEY/GREAT LAKES REGION THROUGH THE
NORTHEAST. WINDS AROUND THE 500 MB LEVEL ARE PROGGED TO STRENGTHEN
INTO THE 130-150 KT RANGE IN A BAND ACROSS THE CENTRAL APPALACHIANS

LOW-LEVEL JET CORE ACROSS THE CENTRAL CAROLINAS THROUGH THE CAROLINA
AND SOUTHEAST VIRGINIA COASTAL PLAIN DURING THE PEAK AFTERNOON
WARMTH...WHEN LOW-LEVEL LAPSE RATES WILL BE THEIR STEEPEST.
THIS

This is such a disappointment!!!! I was hoping I would get something in the NOLA metro area but I guess not.... Doesn't mean I cant observe these storms from a distance!!!!

From a distance is the best way to observe. Unless you want your world turned upside down.

Waiting not so patiently for the new 1630 UTC outlook...If I were them, I would increase the tornado threat slightly to 15%, and the hail threat to 15%.


Houston, we have a problem

Good morning everyone. I hope all in the path of the storms have a safe day. Here in the Keys it is spring. Feels like spring, looks like spring, and the springbreakers are arriving. All I need is the sound of moped horns and I won't even need to look outside. We are forcast to have the front come through on Sat/Sun and have a windy day with some cooling temps. Beautiful weather! Everyone have a good safe day and weekend.

WW may indeed be coming for the Charleston area shortly. Looks like the severe wx potential is increasing.

Why Do Meteorologists Dismiss Climate Change Science?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/marvin-meadors/why- do-meteorologists-dis_b_1289630.html

John Coleman, the founder of The Weather Channel and the original weatherman on Good Morning America: "There isn't any climate crisis," he said. "It's totally manufactured.


That article is a good read.

NWS Charleston:

Adjusting
model soundings for expected afternoon temperatures/dewpoints
yields surface cape values between 1500 and 2000 j/kg and lifted
indices between -4 and -6. The instability in combination with
strong dynamic forcing seen in middle/upper level qg forcing and
divergence aloft from the right rear quadrant of a 180+ knot h25 jet
should yield good shower/thunderstorm coverage this
afternoon...and will keep likely probability of precipitation going all locales. Severe
weather continues to look likely given 850 mb winds increasing to
between 45 and 55 knots and 700 mb winds increasing to between 60 and
70 knots this afternoon. As a result will continue to mention
severe weather with damaging winds possible in the forecast.
Although damaging winds appear to be the primary threat...the
strong forcing for ascent will also support a threat for large
hail and the strongly sheared environment will also support a
potential for isolated tornadoes. Will update the hazardous
weather outlook accordingly. The most probable time frame for
severe weather is expected between 1 PM and 7 PM. Update will be
sent shortly.
