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!

One thing for sure, there seems to be more and more contrails, the airline business seems to be doing better these days.

I think the number of airline flights have stayed about constant for the last few years. Contrails are dependent on the density altitude and that varies day to day.

Aircraft engines like all internal combustion engines do create water... it is a byproduct of combustion.
i will admit, i was incorrect on this. thinking it a recycled emission, and correlating the contrail with particulate soot condensing the already present vapor, i had not been aware of a 30% water vapor output by jet fuel. i feel like a heel calling the notion preposterous.

however, nothing has changed in my thoughts on motivated weather modification efforts. i just don't see a concerted conspiracy with air travel.. i see the unfortunate outcomes of an over eager global society.

The airline industry is growing yes, but not doing better. A few airlines here and there are doing good (JetBlue), but the rest are about as profitable as AA, which just filed for chapter 11. This decade, I wouldn't be surprised if many airlines simply disappear, especially the larger ones.

Slow Soaking Rain!!! YEA! Our Crops IS SAVVEDD!
or at least the drought is lessened in the region of NE FL.

The long black shadows from Contrails above winter stratus layers seems much more prevalent this year.
Some days the sky looks like a loose weave fabric from all the trails.
The "dove in a hole" ice precipitate, definitely does handle light differently than surrounding cloud layers. See my sundog images.

Heartland.. now there's an exposed conspiracy, which was clearly evident as such due to the countless release of information deemed false, contradictory, and laden with fallacy.. and the argument that weather modification is under way by governments has, for me, exhibited an equal amount of mis-characterized and misinformed dissemination.
wxmod has shown us many pics of China smog... now There is weather modification indeed.. but there is nothing in the sense of logic and reason that informs us the smog is a result of China's desire to modify weather. no -it is a result of productivity desires, such as are ALL of the motivations behind activity whereby humans are actually modifying weather.

aside from cloud seeding, no successful attempts at government-based weather modification seem to be present; at least by my personal standards of evidential support.
but, we all get a voice ;)

it's pretty simple... if it's about a conspiracy, and using facts that neither corroborate nor fall within the scope of reasonableness, than it is a conspiracy theory.

conspiracies exist, they are exposed all the time. but then, scientific facts exists, which are also exposed all the time. it's up to you, whomever you are, to not lose sight of where information comes from, what it leads to, and the way it fits into that which is the observable reality where we actually reside as physical beings.

i don't feed from the spoon, fellow blogger. i reach in for myself, and choose the items that are edible, having had the experience of tasting the inedible... to extend your metaphor.

Define "conspiracy theorist", you believe anything that's not spoon-fed to you can't be happening? The Manhattan project had tens of thousands of people working on it without the general public knowing about it, I understand that now we're living in an era where people have been conditioned to have an immediate Pavlovian response to picture tinfoil hats at even the mention of the word "conspiracy", like Pavlov's dog salivating when hearing his bell being rung. I'd at least read the scholarly research that has been done on it in the links provided before spouting off the cuff. The father of the modern environmental movement "We are as Gods" Stewart Brand says spraying sulfur dioxide will cool the planet and proclaims any criticism of geo-engineering a "heresy"

Contrails are not being "used" for anything. They are a bi-product of air travel and any affect on weather/climate is a consequence of demand for that service. Effect of contrails on climate has substantial error bars - some papers have suggested a net warming effect, while others have suggested a cooling effect. A commonly-held understanding of high clouds is that they tend to produce a net cooling effect, while low clouds tend to produce a net warming effect. See "global dimming."


I misspoke, meant to type chemtrails there- the intentional spraying not related to air travel.

508 AM EST MON FEB 27 2012

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
AN AREA OF DISTURBED WEATHER OVER THE EAST GULF OF MEXICO WILL PUSH ACROSS CENTRAL FLORIDA TODAY...BRINGING HIGH RAIN CHANCES AND AS WELL AS A CHANCE FOR AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS. THE PRIMARY
THREAT FROM ANY STORMS THAT FORM WOULD BE CLOUD-T0-GROUND LIGHTNING. REMEMBER...IF THUNDER CAN BE HEARD THEN LIGHTNING IS WITHIN STRIKING DISTANCE. SUSPEND OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES AND SEEK SHELTER IMMEDIATELY. DO NOT RESUME OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES UNTIL THUNDER HAS BEEN SILENT FOR 30 MINUTES.

.DENSE FOG/SMOKE IMPACT...
SKIES WILL CLEAR LATE TONIGHT AND WINDS WILL DIMINISH A HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE OFF THE MID ATLANTIC COAST WEAKENS AND MOVES INTO THE ATLANTIC. AREAS OF FOG ARE EXPECTED TO FORM LATE TONIGHT AND CONTINUE THROUGH THE EARLY MORNING HOURS. THE FOG MAY BECOME DENSE IN AREAS...ESPECIALLY IN AREAS THAT RECEIVE RAIN TODAY.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
A FEW THUNDERSTORMS MAY DEVELOP OVER EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA THIS AFTERNOON. ANY STORMS THAT DO FORM WOULD MOVE NORTHEAST AROUND 15 KNOTS. SOME OF THE STORMS MAY INTENSIFY AS THEY APPROACH THE COAST AND MOVE OFFSHORE. THESE STORMS WOULD BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING SURFACE WIND GUSTS AROUND 34 KNOTS.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
A MODERATE TO FRESH SOUTHEASTERLY BREEZE WILL GENERATE CHOPPY 4 TO 6 FOOT SEAS WITH DOMINANT PERIODS 7 SECONDS OR LESS. SMALL CRAFT SHOULD EXERCISE CAUTION WHEN VENTURING INTO THE OPEN ATLANTIC
TODAY DUE TO THE ROUGH CONDITIONS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
HAZARDOUS WEATHER IS NOT ANTICIPATED AT THIS TIME.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTERS ARE REQUESTED TO MONITOR THE WEATHER AND SELF ACTIVATE IF NEEDED.

$$
Noon start time for Daytona 500 is currently doubtful.
Probably many are hoping for a start this evening.

Professor Benford (U.C.

If geoengineers are painted early and often as Dr. Strangeloves of the air, they will fail. Properly portrayed as allies of science--and true environmentalism--they could become heroes%u2026 A major factor here will be whether mitigation looks like yet another top-down contrivance, another set of orders from the elite. Draconian policing of fuel burning will certainly look that way, a frowning Aunt Bessie elbowing into daily details...In contrast, mitigation does not have to push a new camel's nose into our tents... Technical solutions can play out far from people's lives, on the sea or high in the air. "Once we become caretakers, we cannot stop...(they) must be carried forward in the shadow of our stewardship""

Quoting wxmod:


How stupid of me. Gee. I never thought about this...
The seeding material is salt for the whitening projects, not silver iodide. The intention is to reflect the sun and make a change in temperature and density in the atmosphere, not seed clouds. Seeding for temperature and density is totally doable, as you can see from satellite photos if you would just look. Yes the liability is great but the rewards are total control of the weather universe and probably the human planet Earth. If I wasn't concerned about it, I wouldn't be here.


I did not mention silver iodide. That is only one particular method. There is also dry ice, various salts, etc. depending on whether or not your aiming for precipitation or just cloud nucleation, and depending on whether your going after ice or water deposition.

No matter whether you are seeding for temperature and density or precipitation, the results are the same. It is far from a guaranteed method. Regardless of what method you are using, the atmosphere has to be able to support it. And even at the local level the results of such activities are difficult to predict, let alone altering synoptic weather patterns.

There is no total control of the weather universe, as the weather involves a lot more than just clouds. You'd need to be able to reasonably control all aspects of the atmosphere, and we are a long ways from doing anything remotely that complex.

Again, with no legitimate science backing your claims it really is silly to claim that we have the capabilities your claiming. And even if we did, we sure as hell shouldn't be conducting large scale weather experiments without a serious science discussion on the ramifications of performing such actions before carrying them out. Or shall I remind you how our latest climate/weather experiments are going?

Tomorrow, most of Arkansas, eastern Oklahoma, extreme southern Missouri, and extreme northeast Texas will have the biggest threat of severe weather. We should see tornadoes, maybe a couple strong tornadoes, large hail, and damaging winds. Nebraska and Colorado should see some strong to severe storms too.


Wednesday, I'm under the highest chance (30%) for severe weather! Damaging winds will be the main threat, but there is a chance for some tornadoes and hail. A large area, including the Ohio Valley, the Mississippi Valley,and Alabama are under the highest chance and Georgia and the Carolinas should get some strong storms too.

Within the next 48 hours, available numerical weather prediction models are in good agreement. System is expected to keep on tracking west southwestwards and on slowing down gradually on the northern edge of subtropical ridge existing in the south. On this forecast track, as it shifts along the northwestern Malagasy coastline, it is expected to undergo a moderate easterly wind shear. This conditions might limit system intensification. Associated heavy rainfalls might affect the northwestern areas of Madagascar an the eastern Mozambique coastline (between 14s and 18s) and should temporarily occur over Mayotte and Comoros archipelago.

Wednesday and Thursday, system is expected to undergo two opposite steering influences. The first one associated with an equatorial ridge located northward (inducing an eastward motion) and the other one associated with the subtropical ridge located southward (inducing a westward motion). System could therefore remains globally quasi-stationary and slowly intensify (weakening wind-shear, favorable sea surface temperature on the middle of Mozambique channel).

Beyond, subtropical ridge might become back the main steering flow and system should take back a west-southwestward track by continuing to intensify. Uncertainty is poor for the track at medium range. Available numerical weather prediction models forecast a more or less early landfall on Mozambique (track is more or less north). Members of the ECMWF ensemble system is also located northern than the deterministic track. RSMC official forecast track is a compromise of these options. Forecast intensity has been downgraded compare to previous forecast.

Inhabitants of the northern channel area (including Comoros archipelago, north-western coasts of Madagascar and Mozambique coasts) should closely monitor the evolution of this system.

Current intensity does not justify issuance of regular warning. It remains however closely monitored in relationship with its potential for intensification. For further information about this system when no tropical cyclone forecast advisory (WTIO30) is issued, refer to bulletin awio20 for cyclonic activity and significant tropical weather in the southwest Indian ocean issued by the RMSC daily at 1200 PM UTC.

Now that we are entering el Niño again in the same list of names people that don`t like hurricanes would probably make the government to approve a law that this list should be put every year so we don`t have a lot TC.

'Mid Atlantic' is acceptable ;-)

The mid-Atlantic states are north of the Carolinas. Sorry.

It would be funny if we go 10 years without a major hurricane XD.The U.S has got the Vodoo for you hurricanes.I think their is a chance we can...


That would be fascinating from a meteorological standpoint, and quite possibly the subject of a thesis.

Distrust but verify, check out this website and make sure to look at all of the links on this page as well of scholarly research that has been done on the topic, backing up their claims. Former Navy Physicist Ben Livingston, the father of weather weaponry, says scalar weather modification has been going on for several decades.

http://www.agriculturedefensecoalition.org/conten t/alaska-arctic-issues


The Arctic and Alaska have been warming over the last several years. The melting of the glaciers is taking place at an alarming rate. (It appears that this warming trend is hitting not only Alaska and the Arctic but other areas where frozen oceans and land areas have prevented the exploitation of natural gas, oil, and other natural resources by various countries and private oil corporations, like Shell Oil.)

Recent Research by the ADC has led to some interesting findings with regard to both Alaska and the Arctic areas. It appears that many government agencies and leaders in the United States have discussed how the natural resources of these areas could be exploited if these areas were artificially warmed.

Missing in all recent discussions of climate change and global warming are the impacts of aviation induced water vapor (a highly potent greenhouse gas), into the atmosphere through jet engine combustion. New NASA and university studies, some of which are presented below, show that aviation has a huge warming impact on all parts of the Earth most prominently having a negative impact in the Alaska and Arctic areas by artificially warming these areas.

This has led to many countries staking out claims to these warming areas in Alaska and the Arctic. Oil and gas companies are applying for permits to drill in these areas (the U.S. has already given Shell Oil permits to drill and in 2012, have approved questionable oil spill mitigation measures). Many countries are competing with each other for the monetary prize, military advantage, and other benefits from the warming of these areas.



The ADC has worked to document these various interests, the financial rewards of exploiting these areas, the ecological hazards, military advantages, advantages to shipping commerce, and other interests.

We hear the climate change/global warming manta all the time with crisis warnings day-in and day-out without closely examining the water vapor/aviation impact issues. These dire warnings are designed to drive the impetus for a new carbon tax and for a multitude of climate remediation or geoengineering schemes to be implemented which could make the situation much worse.

Instead of working with Boeing and other corporations, along with the military to reduce the amount of water vapor and toxic emissions produced by rockets and jet engines, a major source of warming over these cold areas, geoengineers like David Keith and Ken Caldeira, are working to add additional water vapor into the atmosphere to produce aluminum oxide or sulfur particles in the atmosphere. (This process happens when the water vapor is mixed with various gases like aluminum oxide gas.)

Some areas in the world are turning colder or freezing while those areas where there are natural resources to be tapped for $Billions in profits are warming. Jets producing excessive water vapor could be used to continually warm these area...and we may be seeing their impact on an almost daily basis as they criss-cross our skies releasing excessive water vapor and producing man-made clouds.

The information presented below and videos is for your own research into this topic. It should be noted that many studies are showing that aviation and rockets emissions are having an enormous impact on the Earth's Atmosphere along with the water vapor (a powerful greenhouse gas), that they produce.

MAJOR HURRICANE CHUCK NORRIS DISCUSSION NUMBER 100
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL1002011
1000 PM EST SUN FEB 26 2012

…...MAJOR HURRICANE CHUCK NORRIS IS THE MOST POWERFUL HURRICANE EVER TO FORM IN ANY BASIN..... MAX SUSTAINED WINDS ARE AT 500MPH....GUSTING TO 550MPH. PRESSURE HAS DROPPED TO 652MB..... ANYONE IN THE PATH OF THIS STORM PREPARE TO BE ROUNDHOUSE KICKED BY THE MOST DESTRUCTIVE THING ON THE PLANET EVER...CHUCK NORRIS...........

....DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM BOTH AGENCIES REMAIN AT
495 MPH..BUT AMSU INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF
WISCONSIN CIMSS ARE A LITTLE HIGHER. THE INTENSITY IS SET AT 500 MPH
FOR THIS ADVISORY. NOTHING CAN STOP THIS INCREDIBLE STORM...SO CONTINUED INTENSIFICATION IS FORECAST.......... NOTHING ANYWHERE NEAR CHUCK NORRIS CAN CAUSE AN INCREASE IN SHEAR.......AND AGAIN, NOTHING INHIBITS
INTENSIFICATION OF THIS MOSTER STORM............NOTHING CAN STOP CHUCK NORRIS EXCEPT ANOTHER CHUCK NORRIS......... ALL OF THE
GLOBAL COMPUTER FORECASTING MODELS...SUCH AS THE GFS AND NAM...HAVE REFUSED TO WORK BECAUSE MAJOR HURRICANE CHUCK NORRIS DEFIES ALL MODEL GUIDANCE............
THE OFFICIAL INTENSITY FORECAST IS WHATEVER CHUCK NORRIS WANTS AND WE CANNOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT.....

THE STORM CONTINUES TO MOVE WHEREVER HE WANTS......... THE TRACK FORECAST AND REASONING ARE
ESSENTIALLY UNCHANGED. MAJOR HURRICANE CHUCK NORRIS WILL MOVE SOMEWHERE ....AND THEN HEAD TOWARDS YOU IF YOU WANT HIM TO GO OUT TO SEA AND AWAY FROM YOU.......... THIS STORM WILL MAKE LANDFALL SOMEWHERE BETWEEN ANTARCTICA AND THE NORTH POLE.......WE JUST DON'T KNOW WHERE.........

......YOU CANNOT GET OUT OF THE PATH OF THIS STORM AS THERE IS NO RUNNING FROM CHUCK NORRIS...HE WILL FIND YOU......OUR BEST ADVICE IS TO STAY INSIDE....AND DRINK MOUNTAIN DEW......

FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS:

INIT 31/2100Z ?N ?W 500 MPH
12H 01/0600Z ?N ?W 515 MPH
24H 01/1800Z ?N ?W 525 MPH
