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!

I just downloaded 2 and 3, 2 is not working for me.. I will try 3 now


I am going to wait till just before a moderate or high risk near my area so i can have it as long as possible during this severe weather season.
(or i can ask WDEmobmet for $250 :)

GR2Analyst is worth having for any meteorologist or any severe weather enthusiast keen on high-resolution radar data with adaptable hail/rotation algorithms. But it's not for everyone. It does require some knowledge and time to use it properly.



GR2Analyst should be fully operational during the trial. Trial or purchased, you have to have a NEXRAD level2 data source for it to work in realtime. There are sources for this. Some you pay for, some (like ISU's site) that are free.

Of course, there are two other radar systems similar, but not as advanced as Gr2Analyst that would be nice starters.

GRLevel2: $79.95

GRLevel3: $79.95

GR2Analyst Main page: $250 individual license, $500 commercial license

There are 21-day trials for all of them if you wish to experiment. They are on their pages, respectively.


Quoting AussieStorm:

How much s it for GRLevel2? I no there is a 21 day trial, how much after the trial, and is it worth it?


Ive had GRLEVEL3 going on 3 years now. It is by far the best software out there.
GR2ANalyst is on the pricey side you pay for what you get. I have been playing with it since yesterday and I will probably end up purchasing soon.
Point being if your a weather enthusiast its a must have

Tropical Cyclone Advisory #2
TEMPETE TROPICALE MODEREE IRINA (11-20112012)
16:00 PM RET February 26 2012
=====================================

At 12:00 PM UTC, Moderate Tropical Storm Irina (995 hPa) located at 13.8S 50.9E has 10 minute sustained winds of 40 knots with gusts of 60 knots. The cyclone is reported as moving west southwest at 12 knots.

Dvorak Intensity: T1.5/1.5/D0.5/24 HRS

Gale Force Winds
============
In the southwestern quadrant up to 70 NM from the center and in the northwestern quadrant up to 130 NM from the center

Forecast and Intensity
========================

12 HRS: 14.2S 48.2E - 20 knots (Depression sur Terre)
24 HRS: 15.2S 46.0E - 25 knots (Perturbation Tropicale)
48 HRS: 16.3S 42.9E - 40 knots (Tempête Tropicale Modérée)
72 HRS: 16.4S 41.3E - 60 knots (Forte Tempête Tropicale)

Additional Information
=======================

Synopsis report from Antalaha (between 0500 AM UTC and 0900 AM UTC and then at 1200 PM UTC), Sambava (at 0700 AM UTC then no obs) and Diego-Suarez (between 0700 AM UTC and 0900 AM UTC then no obs) shown mean 10 min winds in the gale force range (35-45 kt). Consequently, the Madagascar Weather Services named the system Irina. Those strong winds seems to be associated with the strong burst of convection that occurred this morning just west of the estimated low level circulation center. This convective features is now collapsing.

Despite this strong winds observed, the cloud pattern of Irina is still miles away from a moderate tropical storm signature

The system is moving rapidly westwards on the northern edge of the subtropical ridge that have built back to the south. It undergoes a moderate easterly constraint so the center is estimated to be just to the east of the main convective mass. This pattern should continue within the next two days. On this track, the system should make landfall within the next hours over the northern tip of Madagascar between Diego-Suarez and Sambava (likely near Iharana). Associated heavy rainfalls should affect large areas of northern Madagascar during the next two days. Rainfall rate in 24hour period of 100-150 mm is likely.

Wednesday, environmental conditions should improve (lower shear, high sea surface temperature over the Mozambique channel) and significant intensification is expected.

By that time, the system should be influenced by two contradictory steering flow; one associated with an equatorial ridge located to its north and induced an easterly motion and another one associated with the subtropical ridge located to the south and induced a westwards motion. Consequently, the track should slow down significantly during the middle of next week. Beyond, the subtropical ridge could weaken and allow a more polewards track.

Inhabitants of the northeastern coasts of Madagascar and the northern channel area (including the Comoros archipelago, the northwestern coasts of Madagascar and the Mozambique coasts) should closely monitor the progress of this system.

The next tropical cyclone advisory from Seychelles Meteorological Service on TC Irina will be issued at 18:30 PM UTC..

It's been busier than the average for them, but they've had seasons like this before, at least once since I've started watching the SIndian season in '06. I suspect increased activity with tracks across Madegascar is typical in certain La Nina years....

Woke up to good news this morning.

City of Thunder Bay
5:20 AM EST Sunday 26 February 2012
Snowfall warning for
City of Thunder Bay issued

15 cm snow expected today into tonight.

Snow ahead of a fairly intense Alberta clipper approaching from South Dakota is expected to move into the Lakehead area this morning. Cold easterly winds will pick up extra moisture from Lake Superior and as a result, the snow will be heavy at times with a general snowfall of 15 to 20 cm expected by the time the snow ends after midnight tonight.

Brisk easterly winds will also cause blowing snow in exposed areas. Motorists should be prepared for hazardous winter driving conditions due to accumulating snow on untreated roads and very low visibility in heavy snow and blowing snow.

Snow day tomorrow? :D

The previous earthquake of similar magnitude was a 6.3 in 1991. This appears to have been the strongest earthquake in this region. It was also very shallow (7.3 miles), so it's no surprise the shaking was very severe near the epicenter. On the bright side, this part of Russia has a very low population density, so few people would have felt the severe shaking.

ZONE PERTURBEE 11-20112012
10:00 AM RET February 26 2012
=====================================

At 6:00 AM UTC, Area of Disturbed Weather 11 (997 hPa) located at 13.2S 51.1E has 10 minute sustained winds of 25 knots with gusts of 40 knots. The disturbance is reported as moving west southwest at 15 knots.

Dvorak Intensity: T1.5

Forecast and Intensity
========================

12 HRS: 33.7S 63.7E - 20 knots (Depression sur Terre)
24 HRS: 14.6S 47.0E - 20 knots (Zone Perturbée)
48 HRS: 15.9S 43.5E - 30 knots (Depression Tropicale)
72 HRS: 16.1S 41.3E - 45 knots (Tempête Tropicale Modérée)

Additional Information
=======================

The system could reach at most the tropical depression stage before landfall over the northern tip of Madagascar later today.

Although, convective activity strengthened and concentrated during the last 24 hours, the system still present an ill-defined low level circulation with a center difficult to localize even with microwave imagery.

The system is moving rapidly westwards on the northern edge of the subtropical ridge that have built back to the south. It undergoes a moderate easterly constraint so the center is estimated to be just to the east of the main convective mass. This pattern should continue within the next two days. On this track, the system should make landfall later today over the northern tip of Madagascar between Diego-Suarez and Sambava (likely near Iharana). Given the current conditions and the short timing before landfall, significant development appear as a low probability possibility (the system may reach the tropical depression level but not much). However, associated heavy rainfalls should affect large areas of northern Madagascar during the next two days. Rainfall in 24 hour period of 100-150 mm is likely.

Wednesday, environmental conditions should improve (lower shear, high sea surface temperature over the Mozambique channel) and significant intensification is expected.

By that time, the system should be influenced by two contradictory steering flow; one associated with an equatorial ridge located to its north and induced an easterly motion and another one associated with the subtropical ridge located to the south and induced a westwards motion.

7 reports of nuclear fuel rod pieces being ejected from Fukushima reactors and/or spent fuel pools

Published: February 25th, 2012 at 1:11 pm ET

Several news articles and experts have said nuclear fuel pieces were ejected onto the ground at varying distances from the reactors and spent fuel pools. Here's a list of reports beginning in early April:

NYTimes on "Ejection of Nuclear Material": Confidential US doc suggests pieces of fuel blown up to a mile away -- Some between two units bulldozed over April 6, 2011
NYTimes: Broken pieces of nuclear fuel rods found outside Reactor No. 2, says nuke executive -- Covered up by bulldozers April 7, 2011
Report: Nuclear fuel fragments found over a mile away were "ejected from the reactor cores in those explosions" not spent fuel pools, according to NRC (VIDEO) August 18, 2011
Nuclear engineer: NRC now says reactors and containments have breached and released plutonium off-site -- "Much worse" than if from spent fuel pools (VIDEO) August 22, 2011
US nuke industry report: Explosions at Fukushima Units 1, 3, 4 may have caused inventory (nuclear rods) to be lost from spent fuel pools -- "Debris" on ground near Unit 3 was extremely radioactive after blast November 11, 2011
Mag: Curium and plutonium outside Fukushima plant indicate nuclear explosion at Reactor No. 3 -- Broken spent nuclear fuel rods may have been scattered December 17, 2011
Watch BBC Clip: US video suggests flakes of nuclear fuel were scattered around Fukushima reactors -- Secret plans to evacuate citizens from Japan (VIDEO) February 24, 2012

Tokyo station is contaminated as mandatory evacuating zone in Fukushima
February 25th, 2012 Following up this article ..Tokyo is contaminated as the worst place in Chernobyl

On 2/21~23/2012, a Twitter user measured radiation level at Tokyo station and it turned out to be 2.94~6.5 microSv/h.(Only gamma ray)

↓ Aisle from Yaesuguchi underground parking lot to underground mall of Tokyo Station


Tokyo Station is more contaminated than mandatory evacuating zone in Fukushima

↓On the platform of Tokaido Shinkansen

Tokyo station is contaminated as mandatory evacuating zone in Fukushima2

The picture above is one of the 6 measurements.

The results are like this below

1m height from the ground : 6.5~4.8 microSv/h

1.8m height from the ground : 3.0~4.2 microSv/h

6.5 microSv/h is converted to 57 mSv/y.

It’s higher than 50 mSv/y in mandatory evacuating zone in Fukushima.

The reason of this high level of contamination is assumed to be because hot particles are brought from Fukushima or North Japan by the shoes of passengers.
