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!

Just out of curiosity, what is the closest call you guys have had, regarding severe weather??


I went through the hail(dwondraft) section of a supercell on april 16th at my church, which is just northeast of Sanford. and EF3 tornado missed me by about 4-5 miles.

golfball sized hail was falling, and the hail had spikes

Depends on if that high dbz was in the hail growth region. Otherwise it could be tons of tiny hail covered in water.



TDWR has higher resolution, yes. Shorter wavelength of the emitted radiation. Causes greater attenuation and reduction in ability to see higher velocities correctly, however.
thanks for the info Scott.

What do you mean by attenuation though?

Gasp.

My NWS used the O word!

"AS OF 930 PM THURSDAY...A COLD FRONT OVER THE LOWER MISSISSIPPI
RIVER VALLEY WILL BE MOVING THROUGH THE EASTERN CAROLINAS IN LESS
THAN 24 HOURS...POSSIBLY ACCOMPANIED BY A SEVERE WEATHER OUTBREAK."

Tomorrow could be a Moderate risk day just from the Damaging Wind potential, but I doubt the Storm Prediction Center will do that. They'll probably have a 5/10% tornado, 15% hail, and 30% hatched wind threat.

I'm the same way. I've survived many severe weather events, including the April 27 outbreak and Hurricane Katrina (both of which scared the life out of me), but I still get excited when severe weather is on the docket. Never quite understood why...

Quoting SPLbeater:
If you wanna know if a cell has hail go look at wunderground VIL loop.

I learned in NWS Hotseat that it gives potential for hail in a storm, and the NWS usually thinks about a warning when the VIL inside a storm reaches 40 kg/m^2 or over.


VIL can be a good tool, but is based on estimates of water volume from reflectivity. The error bars on this estimation can be very large. Uncertainties can come from:
1) variations in drop size distribution
2) rain-covered small hail
3) higher storms will have more VIL but if freezing level higher, hail will not necessarily be more likely

VIL-density tends to yield better results (VIL/echo top) but still has issues. The MEHS hail algorithm in GR2Analyst based upon an NSSL-developed technique tends to do well most of the time. It is based upon the radar returns above the freezing level and the -20C levels, where most hail forms/grows. Another technique that uses a similar mindset is the Donovan technique developed several years ago at WFO Des Moines.

When using VIL as the indicator, I'm not sure that many forecasters use a single value. If anything, they may estimate a "VIL of the day" before the event, based upon the freezing level. This can be adjusted on the fly as storms either produce, or don't produce, severe hail at a given VIL.

The GFS has been hinting at two Severe Weather events coming up in the mid-range. The first occurs at the beginning of next week, which the Storm Prediction Center has already hinted at in the Day 4-8 Discussion:

"GFS AND ECMWF SUGGEST A SEVERE THREAT MAY
INCREASE FROM THE SRN PLAINS INTO THE LOWER-MID MS VALLEY BY TUESDAY
/DAY 6/ THEN OH VALLEY AND SERN STATES WEDNESDAY AS RICHER GULF
MOISTURE ADVECTS NWD AHEAD OF A SRN STREAM WAVE. IF MODELS BEGIN TO
SHOW BETTER RUN TO RUN CONSISTENCY A RISK AREA MAY NEED TO BE
INTRODUCED IN LATER UPDATES."


The other event comes next weekend as a strong low pressure area moves across northern Louisiana. This event would have decent CAPE, shear, temperatures, and moisture. Of course, it's still a while out, but not as far out as other events we've been looking at.

Something to watch, and just a sign we're getting closer to severe weather season.

Quoting Chucktown:


CAPE and LI's will be very impressive around here tomorrow, but mid-level lapse rates are not going to be all that impressive. Also, cloud cover ahead of the front will somewhat suppress solar insolation which will limit how much the atmosphere will be able to destabilize. Main thing to remember, it's still February, not July. I'm not expecting a widespread severe outbreak across the Carolinas, but rather a broken line of convection with isolated strong to severe cells. Main threat will be hail and damaging winds. While an isolated tornado can't be ruled out, it will not be the main concern. I do expect these areas to be under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch sometime tomorrow, but not a Tornado Watch.

I don't know..they considered issuing one this afternoon, and wind shear is more than favorable for an isolated tornado threat.

im not enthused about being in a 30% range.
I still got pictures from last april in my head:/

Yesterday i was in the 5% range for damaging wind, and sure enough at 12:30 a strong line of storms rolled through and produced some strong windspeeds.

Tomorrow looks like a better Severe Weather day for sure. There will be more instability, more shear, less capping issues, more forcing, and it will come during the peak heating of the day.

The best part of it is that I will be right in the thick of it.

About time someone got a brain.

Think of all the parking lot space at shopping centers and hospitals.

Not only do you get free power, you reduce the heat stress on the concrete or asphault, making the parking lot require less maintenance.

I don't know why shopping centers don't cover their entire roofs in solar panels, as well as the parking lots, and sell any excess energy to the grid.

Grid tie inverters are 99.9% efficient now.


You also get cooler cars on a hot day and some cover to keep rain off your head as well.

Parking lots - great places for solar farms. Those sections of roads where people often get caught in stop and go would be another good location.

Let the price of panels come down a bit more and you'll start seeing lots of parking lot and rooftop installations. We've just seen a drop below $1/watt and it is expected prices will get to around $0.70/watt later this year.

Quoting Treehorn:


Actually, I never said Gleick manufactured anything, just that he passed the article on. Some very difficult items to explain from the strategy document are:

1. Unlike the other documents, it's written in the first person (and with many more grammar mistakes than the other documents). Yet, oddly, the author's name is never mentioned or signed. It also reads like the Green Goblin or Lex Luther wrote it, a super-villain monologuing his sinister plan.

2. The strategy document originates from the west coast, as a pdf scan, the day before the story broke. The other documents were electronic files from an email account in CST (where Heartland offices reside), other than the IRS document which was EST.

3. The Koch donation was $25,000, not $200,000 ($200k was the amount they hoped to receive in 2012 - you can read this in the confirmed real documents that were exposed). The $25,000 was assigned to the category code HCN, short for Health Care News, another area Heartland is involved in. The strategy memo completely botches this fact - You'd think the "board member" writing this, who also supposedly had the financial documents, would get this right, or know where major contributions fell. The memo seems to go out of it's way to involve Koch and resonate a popular theme identified with skeptics.

4. The strategy memo oddly mentions Gleick, and singles out Forbes, a site where Gleick has done some opinion pieces. Gleick is hardly the lead target for venom being spewed forth by biased think-tanks like Heartland.

5. An AGW skeptic think tank labels themselves "anti-climate?" Seems like a very peculiar phrase. Gleick has used the phrase "anti-climate" in past writings.

There is more evidence the strategy memo is not authentic. You can read more here:
http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2012/ 02/heartland-memo-looking-faker-by-the-minute/2532 76/

So yes, given all the evidence, it's my opinion the document was false.
Perhaps instead of wondering why Gleick passed along the article, you could conclude that he did so because it's authentic?

Anyway. you've nicely enumerated all the items that came out in the piece in The Atlantic. But I'd already read all them, and don't find them convincing. Here's the "evidence" in a nutshell, all of it circumstantial and conjectural, and of the sort that likely wouldn't be allowed in most courtrooms: the memo uses a different POV; it's from a different time zone; it contains a numerical typo; it mentions Gleick; it uses the term "anti-climate".

A bit flimsy, no?

Anyway, rather than re-enumerate the items outlined in the wonderful DeSmogBlog deconstruction of the Heartland strategy memo, I'd direct you to this verifiably true Heartland document. Then tell me that it's not as wacky as the memo Heartland claims is phony. And pay special attention to the passage on page 8 discussing "climategate". You'll note an obvious lack of talk about how the emails were illegally stolen. And you'll also note this passage: "Heartland once again played the lead role in informing the public about these blows to alarmist credibility."

Hypocrisy, thy name is Heartland.

He's already profoundly hurt his credibility and career; perhaps he figures there's nothing to gain and much to lose by ratting out another insider.

Anyway, an analysis suggests that the document Heartland has been claiming as faked is, indeed, genuine. Now, as has been repeatedly noted, what Gleick did was stupid and unethical. But while two wrongs absolutely do not make a right, it doesn't change the fact that Heartland has been exposed (again) as a manipulative, unethical, and amoral organization bent on ensuring the public is kept confused and in the dark about the greatest threat humankind has seen in dozens of millennia.

Now that Gleick has done the right thing in admitting to his wrongs, I'm still breathlessly waiting for someone on the denialist side to come forward and admit to the criminal acts that they perpetrated in stealing the so-called "climategate" emails and disbursing them in cherry-picked fashion to outlets that ran them with great glee--hypocritical Heartland being among the tops. Waiting. Waiting. Waiting...


The version I heard is that Gleick contacted Heartland staff using the name of a board member (or someone inside the organization) and asked for documents.

If that's the case then there is no "insider", just a staffer who assumed the name on the request was real.
