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!

Snow has started accumulating here in SW MI. Radar says it has been rain, but it lies.


my area in south central ontario is under a snow warning
up to 15 maybe 20 cm on the way
which is 6 to 10 inches
half a foot to near a foot in some places by this time tommorrow
it will be the most snow at once so far this season and looks like another early next week
and yet a third one for same time as this one next week as well
we could get socked in here over the next week or so
we shall see i guess

I'm not on the denialist side. Stealing emails, cherry-picking them is appalling. Pushing a fake document (the argument for authenticity is extremely weak) is wrong too. For this chain of events, the author makes a great point...

"When skeptics complain that global warming activists are apparently willing to go to any lengths–including lying–to advance their worldview, I’d say one of the movement’s top priorities should be not proving them right. And if one rogue member of the community does something crazy that provides such proof, I’d say it is crucial that the other members of the community say “Oh, how horrible, this is so far beyond the pale that I cannot imagine how this ever could have happened!” and not, “Well, he’s apologized and I really think it’s pretty crude and opportunistic to make a fuss about something that’s so unimportant in the grand scheme of things.”
After you have convinced people that you fervently believe your cause to be more important than telling the truth, you’ve lost the power to convince them of anything else." - McArdle

I've been reading this site for more than 5 years. That last sentence can be applied to far too many posters on this site. There are a number of posters here with sound factual information, they are the reason I read. I wish others, on both sides of the argument, would post with less conviction and more facts.
You just went and accused Gleick of manufacturing that one certain document, yet you've presented no proof--or facts, if you will--that he did so. You can certainly claim "the argument for authenticity is extremely weak", but I reckon that's a matter of personal opinion. My own opinion--since you've expressed yours--is that the argument for fakery is even weaker, and that the paper in question is indeed real. (Here's something to consider: having stooped so low as to lie to get the documents, why would Gleick have simply faked just one document when he could have easily made up all sorts of incriminating paperwork?)

See, on the one hand, we've got Gleick, who lied to get the documents but then told the truth about having done so, and who claims that everything he released was authentic and genuine and en toto. On the other hand, we've got the Heartland Institute, an organization that happily accepted and disseminated the criminally stolen "climategate" emails piecemeal without once expressing a moment's regret, who now claims that all the documents that Gleick misapprropriated are certifiably true and genuine, with the exception of the single most damaging document.

The full truth may never be known. But if you ask me, the onus is on Heartland to prove that document alone was faked. And simply saying, "It's fake because we say it is" holds no weight whatsoever.

For the record, I never said, "I really think it’s pretty crude and opportunistic to make a fuss about something that’s so unimportant in the grand scheme of things.” In fact, I and many others are on record as stating repeatedly here and elsewhere that what Gleick did was wrong, it was stupid, it was unethical, it was harmful, it was destructive, it was dumb, and so on. But none of that makes the facts he exposed about Heartland any less truthful. Heartland, besides being extremely hypocritical in regards to this issue, is, indeed, a vile and manipulative anti-science organization that exists for the sole purposes of maintaining the exceedingly profitable fossil fuel-only paradigm. As has, again, been amply and sadly illustrated.

This NASA video explains how surface ocean currents are driven by wind while deeper currents are driven by density.

In October, 2011, NASA's Operation IceBridge discovered a major rift in the Pine Island Glacier in western Antarctica. This crack, which extends at least 18 miles and is 50 meters deep, could produce an iceberg more than 800 square kilometers in size. IceBridge scientists returned soon after to make the first-ever detailed airborne measurements of a major iceberg calving in progress. Music by Ishq - "bhakti"

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.

yep, 2005 and every other year for the past few million years. The loop current is always there and eddies break off over time, nothing new. Even if an eddy were to break off now or in the next month or two, it wouldnt be a big deal since it would be much smaller by the time we reached the peak of the hurricane season.

I hope this doesn't mean something really bad, like if the El Nino were to return early, and Zap us with the hottest temperatures since 1998... with 110+ temps frequently... So brutal. Hope that La Nina/Cold Neutral milks it and sticks around at least until the Summer is about half way or 3/4 of the way over. Hot weather can stay away and never show up for all i care.

Giant whirlpool churns up ocean south of Africa
Posted on February 23, 2012
February 23, 2012 – AFRICA - A NASA satellite has provided jaw-dropping pictures of a huge ‘storm’ brewing under the sea. The swirling mass of water – which measures a whopping 93 miles wide – has been spotted off the coast of South Africa by the Terra satellite on December 26. But there’s no need to alert international shipping, or worry about the poor fish that might find themselves in an endless washing cycle – the body of water poses no threat. Indeed, it is more likely to create life by sucking nutrients from the bed and bringing them to the surface. The sea storms – which are better known as eddies – form bizarre whirl shaped shapes deep beneath the ocean’s surface. This counter-clockwise eddy is thought to have peeled off from the Agulhas Current, which flows along the southeastern coast of Africa and around the tip of South Africa. Agulhas eddies – also called ‘current rings’ – tend to be among the largest in the world, transporting warm, salty water from the Indian Ocean to the South Atlantic. Agulhas eddies can remove juvenile fish from the continental shelf, reducing catch sizes if one passes through a fishing region. The bizarre phenomenon was spotted when the Terra satellite was conducting a routine natural-color image of the Earth. –Daily Mail
