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!

...Increased fire danger from 9 am EST this morning through this
evening...

Southwest winds will increase to between 20 and 30 mph today
across western North Carolina...with gusts possibly as high as 40
to 50 mph at times during the afternoon hours and early evening
hours. Although showers and thunderstorms will be possible through
the day...rainfall amounts are not expected to be heavy enough in
most locations to significantly wet fuels and brush. In
addition...relative humidity values will likely fall into the
upper 20s late this afternoon as a cold front moves east of the
region.

The very windy and relatively dry conditions will greatly
increase fire danger. Postpone any burning plans since fires can
quickly get out of hand under these conditions.

To be honest, this below image terrifies me. 0-1km Helicity values of 400-500 m2/s2 are conducive for strong, long-lived tornadoes. To make it worse, this is between 3-5pm, or the time of peak heating here.

AREAS AFFECTED...SRN AL...GA...WCNTRL SC

CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 35...

VALID 241549Z - 241645Z

THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 35 CONTINUES.

A NARROW ZONE OF STRONGER BOUNDARY LAYER HEATING...ROUGHLY 50-75MI
WIDE...HAS DEVELOPED FROM THE WRN FL PANHANDLE...NEWD INTO CNTRL GA
BENEATH BREAKS IN CLOUD COVER. LOW LEVEL LAPSE RATES ARE STEEPENING
ALONG THIS CORRIDOR THOUGH LOWER TROPOSPHERIC FLOW HAS VEERED
SOMEWHAT. THIS HEATING WILL LIKELY TRANSLATE INTO A MORE UNSTABLE
ENVIRONMENT FOR INTENSE UPDRAFTS.

LATEST TRENDS SUGGEST CONVECTION IS BEGINNING TO INCREASE IN
INTENSITY ALONG THE SURGING COLD FRONT AS IT CATCHES UP TO THE
PRE-FRONTAL CONVECTION OVER AL. ENHANCED CONVERGENCE COULD EASILY
ENCOURAGE STRENGTHENING AND THERE IS INCREASING CONFIDENCE THAT
SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL OVERSPREAD THE AFOREMENTIONED CORRIDOR OF
STRONGER HEATING. IT/S NOT ENTIRELY CLEAR HOW THE BAND OF
SHOWERS/ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WELL AHEAD OF THE FRONT OVER THE FL
PANHANDLE WILL EVOLVE. LATEST THINKING IS CONVECTION WILL LIKELY BE
MORE CONCENTRATED/INTENSE ALONG THE SURGING COLD FRONT.

VALID 241300Z - 251200Z

...THERE IS A MDT RISK OF SVR TSTMS FROM SRN/ERN VA SWD INTO
CNTRL/ERN NC AND SC...

...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS SURROUNDING THE MDT RISK
AREA...FROM PARTS OF THE SOUTHEAST TO THE MID ATLANTIC CST...

...SYNOPSIS...
POTENT IL SHORTWAVE TROUGH EXPECTED TO UNDERGO FURTHER AMPLIFICATION
AS IT CONTINUES E/NE TO THE LWR GRT LKS THIS EVE AND INTO ME/NB
EARLY SAT. ASSOCIATED MID LVL JET STREAK NOW CENTERED OVER THE
OZARKS/LWR OH VLY ALSO SHOULD STRENGTHEN AS IT REACHES THE CNTRL
APPALACHIANS LATER TODAY...WITH 500 MB SWLY WINDS INCREASING TO AOA
110 KT OVER THE CAROLINAS/VA. THE MAIN SFC LOW SHOULD DEEPEN NNEWD
FROM OH TO LK ONTARIO...WITH A SECONDARY CENTER POSSIBLY FORMING
ALONG STNRY FRONT OVER MD/DE. AS THE OH LOW DEEPENS...ATTENDANT
COLD FRONT WILL ACCELERATE E/SE ACROSS THE SRN/CNTRL APPALACHIANS BY
EARLY AFTN. THE BOUNDARY SHOULD EXTEND FROM THE DELMARVA PENINSULA
SW ACROSS THE S ATLANTIC CSTL PLN BY EVE...AND WILL SERVE AS A FOCUS
FOR NUMEROUS STRONG TO SVR TSTMS.

...SOUTHEAST TO MID-ATLANTIC TODAY/EARLY TNGT ...
COMBINATION OF VERY STRONG WIND FIELD OVERSPREADING A MODESTLY
UNSTABLE...GRADUALLY MOISTENING WARM SECTOR WILL YIELD AN ENHANCED
POTENTIAL FOR TSTMS WITH DMGG WIND AND TORNADOES OVER PARTS OF THE
SOUTHEAST AND MID ATLANTIC CSTL PLN TODAY.

WHILE THE MIDWESTERN TROUGH WILL REMAIN LARGELY POSITIVELY TILTED AS
IT CONTINUES ENEWD...CURRENT SATELLITE AND MODEL DATA SUGGEST THAT
THE SYSTEM WILL BECOME SUBSTANTIALLY MORE PROGRESSIVE AS ASSOCIATED
JET STREAK SWEEPS ENE TOWARD THE MID ATLANTIC STATES. THIS...IN
CONJUNCTION WITH SFC HEATING AND WEAK COLD ADVECTION/MOISTENING AT
700 MB...SHOULD GRADUALLY WEAKEN/ELIMINATE EXISTING WARM SECTOR CINH
AND SUPPORT INCREASING COVERAGE/INTENSITY OF SCTD CONVECTION NOW
PRESENT ALONG AND AHEAD OF AFOREMENTIONED COLD FRONT. THE DYNAMICAL
PART OF THIS PROCESS ALREADY MAY BE UNDERWAY OVER THE SW PART OF SVR
RISK AREA...GIVEN RECENT STRENGTHENING OF CONVECTION/STORMS IN
AL/GA.

THE AL/GA TSTMS SHOULD CONTINUE TO INCREASE IN COVERAGE/STRENGTH
THROUGH THIS MORNING...WITH ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT LIKELY OVER TIME
NEWD INTO NC/VA. DEVELOPMENT IN THE CAROLINAS AND VA WILL BE
ENCOURAGED BY INFLOW OF MORE MOIST AIR /PW AOA 1.5 INCHES AND
DEWPOINTS IN THE LWR 60S F/ FROM THE CNTRL/ERN GULF CST...AND BY
CONVERGENCE ALONG OUTFLOW BOUNDARY PROGRESSING E FROM OVERNIGHT
STORMS IN KY/TN.

50-60 KT SWLY LLJ BENEATH STRENGTHENING MID/UPR LVL FLOW WILL YIELD
70+ KT CLOUD LAYER SHEAR. ASSUMING THE PRESENCE OF SUSTAINED
UPDRAFTS...LONG...SLIGHTLY HOOKED HODOGRAPHS SUGGEST THE LIKELIHOOD
FOR SUPERCELL STORMS/SMALL BOWS CAPABLE OF BOTH SWATHS OF DMGG WIND
AND TORNADOES. THIS THREAT SHOULD BE GREATEST OVER PARTS OF SRN/ERN
VA SWD INTO CNTRL/ERN PARTS OF THE CAROLINAS...WHERE HEATING SHOULD
BE GREATEST INVOF LWR TROPOSPHERIC WIND MAX. THE STORMS EVENTUALLY
SHOULD EVOLVE INTO BROKEN LINES...WITH EMBEDDED SUPERCELLS/MESOSCALE
CIRCULATIONS EXTENDING THE SVR THREAT TO THE CST BY EARLY EVE.

Now that everything seems back to normal, we've missed a tornado in Alabama. As of late, a tornado has been confirmed on the ground, and it has caused minimal damage to a school.



We've been on it could be a large tornado on the ground west of Monroeville,AL. Largest tornadoes may actually be from this area to Charleston,SC.
