Wunderground launches new Local Climate Change section

In honor of Earth Day on Sunday, wunderground has launched a new Climate Change Center, which gives people resources to understand how the climate is changing both globally and in their local neighborhoods. I am particularly pleased with our Local Climate Change feature, which allows one to see how temperature and precipitation have changed over the past 100+ years at the nearest station with a long period of measurements. Predictions from climate models on what the next 100 years may bring are overlaid for each station. Data for most U.S. stations goes back to 1895; we have data for a few stations in Europe that extend back to the 1700s. Berlin has the longest period of record in this database, with data back to 1702.


Figure 1. Screenshot of the Local Climate Change page for Washington, DC. Measured temperatures since 1820 are shown in grey. By clicking on the "Show post-1900 trend:" box, we see that the trend since 1900 has been for an increase in temperature of 1.5°C (2.7°F) per century. Moving the thin vertical red line over the image using the mouse shows that the warmest year on record in Washington D.C. was 1991. Predictions for a future with low emissions of heat-trapping gases like carbon dioxide are shown in yellow; the high emissions prediction is shown in red. Separate tabs are available to examine precipitation and snow.

Skeptical?
Also included in the new Climate Change Center is a section addressing the common skeptical arguments made against climate change. We offer three levels of explanation. The "Basic" level is the default, but one can also see more technical in-depth discussions by clicking on the "See All Explanation Levels" link. The material was developed by physicist John Cook for his excellent skepticalscience.com web site, which is widely referenced in the climate science communication community.


Video 1. I'm featured in this video on extreme weather and climate change done by veteran videographer Peter Sinclair for the Yale forum on Climate Change and the Media this month. I'm also featured in Part 1 of this series. Our new Climate Change Center has a section for climate change videos, which includes a twice-monthly feature from GreenTV detailing the world's notable wild weather events of the past two weeks.

Earth: the Operator's Manual airs Sunday night
Penn State climate scientist Dr. Richard Alley hosts parts II and III of Earth: the Operator's Manual on PBS beginning at 7pm Sunday, April 22--Earth Day. Part I of this excellent series aired in April 2011. The series gives an overview of climate change, but primarily focuses on what we can do to help slow down climate change though smart energy choices. Dr. Alley, a registered Republican, geologist, and former oil company employee, is the Evan Pugh Professor of Geosciences at the Pennsylvania State University, and one of the most respected and widely published world experts on climate change. Dr. Alley has testified before Congress on climate change issues, served as lead author of "Chapter 4: Observations: Changes in Snow, Ice and Frozen Ground" for the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and is author of more than 170 peer-reviewed scientific articles on Earth's climate. He is also the author of a book I highly recommend--The Two Mile Time Machine, a superb account of Earth's climate history as deduced from the 2-mile long Greenland ice cores. Dr. Alley is an excellent and engaging speaker, and I highly recommend listening to his 45-minute keynote speech, "The Biggest Control Knob: CO2 in Earth's Climate History", given at the 2010 American Geophysical Union meeting, via this very watchable recording showing his slides as he speaks in one corner of the video. If you want to understand why scientists are so certain of the link between CO2 and Earth's climate, this is a must-see lecture.

Have a great weekend, everyone, and I'll be back Monday with a new post. I'd like to thank Wunderground meteorologist, Angela Fritz for spearheading the creating the new Climate Change Center; it's a product I'll be referring to frequently in the future, and one we'll be updating in the coming months with data on local sea level rise, fire risk, and drought.

NWS is telling us to listen and watch for things going bump in the night!

752 PM EDT SAT APR 21 2012

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...OVERNIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS ARE FORECAST TO BECOME MORE FAVORABLE FOR SEVERE WEATHER ACROSS CENTRAL FLORIDA DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS AS A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IN THE GULF OF MEXICO APPROACHES THE FLORIDA PENINSULA. A SECONDARY LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS IS DEVELOPING IN THE EASTERN GULF OF MEXICO THIS EVENING.

IF THIS LINE OF STORMS CONTINUES TO DEVELOP AND REMAINS INTACT THE POTENTIAL FOR SEVERE WEATHER IN EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA WILL INCREASE TOWARD MIDNIGHT AND CONTINUE DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS INTO EARLY SUNDAY MORNING...
WITH THE SEVERE THREAT RAPIDLY DIMINISHING AROUND SUNRISE SUNDAY.

OVERNIGHT STORMS WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE DAMAGING WIND GUSTS...LARGE HAIL...AND TORNADOES.

PERSONS IN EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA ARE URGED TO KEEP TABS ON THE WEATHER OVERNIGHT. IF YOU HAVE A WEATHER RADIO...MAKE SURE IT IS IN GOOD WORKING ORDER BEFORE YOU GO TO SLEEP TONIGHT. IF YOU DON`T HAVE A WEATHER RADIO...ENSURE YOU HAVE A RELIABLE MEANS FOR RECEIVING
SEVERE WEATHER INFORMATION WHILE ASLEEP. LISTEN FOR FURTHER STATEMENTS AND POTENTIAL WATCHES OR WARNINGS. IF A WARNING IS ISSUED...MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN A SAFE LOCATION...A SECURE STRUCTURE AWAY FROM WINDOWS.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
STORMS WILL MOVE RAPIDLY EAST ACROSS THE PENINSULA... THEN INTO THE INTRACOASTAL AND NEARSHORE ATLANTIC WATERS OVERNIGHT. STORMS MAY PRODUCE WIND GUSTS ABOVE 35 KNOTS OVER INLAND LAKES AS WELL AS THE INTRACOASTAL AND ATLANTIC WATERS. WATERSPOUTS WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL INCREASE TO 20 TO 25 KNOTS OVERNIGHT AND REMAIN STRONG INTO SUNDAY. THIS WILL CAUSE HAZARDOUS CHOPPY SEAS ON THE ATLANTIC. A SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY FOR WINDS IS IN EFFECT.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL LINGER INTO EARLY SUNDAY...BUT WILL QUICKLY END FROM NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST AS A COLD FRONT SWEEPS THROUGH THE AREA. WINDS AND SEAS WILL REMAIN HAZARDOUS ON THE ATLANTIC THROUGH SUNDAY AND INTO EARLY MONDAY MORNING.

INCREASING WINDS AND LOWERING HUMIDITY WILL ALSO INCREASE THE FIRE DANGER ONCE AGAIN STARING MONDAY.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTERS SHOULD MONITOR THE WEATHER. SEVERE WEATHER WATCHES AND WARNINGS WILL BE POSSIBLE OVERNIGHT AND FORMAL ACTIVATION OF SKYWARN SPOTTER NETWORKS MAY BE NEEDED.

I think it's obvious that line in the GOM is encountering favorable conditions for strengthening. At least 2 of the cells are showing a 30% or greater risk of hail. And they're increasing in aerial coverage. The question now is do conditions remain favorable to the coastline or not?


Any Signs of it extending south?

Currently getting some light rain here. Seems slightly warmer out there now than it did earlier. Winds have been out of the SSE most of the day, explaining why we haven't seen a greater temp drop so far. I doubt we drop below 70 tonight.

Ah... here we have some heavier rain at last.

Quoting FLWaterFront:


Yes. And what you said earlier was correct, in principle. Normally the sinking air behind a rain event would tend to retard development or sustainability of convective activity following closely on its heels.

But this is an unusual situation. Sometimes the storm systems just create their own atmospheric environment, as we have all heard numerous times.

My guess is that in the hour or so before that line arrives, the winds out of the south will pick up rapidly and dramatically, and the air will appear to actually warm up quite a bit and moisten up as well. Just my take, FWIW.


Yeah I agree. I was just saying the atmosphere would need some time to be able to again produce storms. It's a close call but I think that surge of energy and moisture is in the process of returning into the SE GOM.

Didn't say exploding but did say extending further south. Having said that I still think there is the potential for severe wx later on this evening as this line approaches.

Guys check this out, this is important, remember the surface CAPE image I showed you earlier? Well, the region ahead of the cold front where the thunderstorms are now only had surface CAPE between a pitiful 100 and 200 J/kg, now look at it, high CAPE is advecting northward toward the developing thunderstorms ahead of the cold front, CAPE has rapidly recovered, this might get quite interesting tonight around here after all!



Notice CAPE is still very low over land, this is expected with the sun going down. However over water it becomes more unstable at night, I would imagine if you live in the eastern half of the state that this line might not hold together. But the West Coast of Florida at least should get impacted by this quite a bit.


However, with south to southwest flow developing ahead of the surface low and strong dynamics, we cant rule out this line persisting inland over night. We shall see.



This is SPC way of saying, it's not over yet...

Just as an aside, today I paid almost $50.00 for a tank of gas. When I got this car back in '09, I was paying about $35.00 for the same tank of gas.

I did notice those, and I'll admit they're a little more impressive than I thought, but I think they'll lose some of their punch before coming onshore... The SPC doesn't seem to be taking the situation to seriously with no watches or MD's out.

Looks like the powerful dynamics from the system are overcoming the drier stable layer that infiltrated the cold frontal zone. Note that the MCS that I said was responsible for cutting off the moisture is beginning to sag southward enough for a more southerly flow to return ahead of the cold front. Indeed, because low level cumulus is racing by out of the south as the sun sets.


Looks like the line of convection is finally materializing, although I doubt it will get too severe mainly because the environment is in is still pretty stable and air aloft is quite dry even though low level moisture is high. If that line of convection can get a low level jet to start pumping into it, watch out because then it would moisten the atmosphere from the lower atmosphere up.


I


The cloud tops are clearly developing a V shape in the various satellite presentations. Divergent flow? The moistening of the atmosphere from the lower levels on up perhaps?

Remember I said earlier that there could well be a moisture feed reestablishment, given the extraordinary dynamics of this situation. Frankly, I cannot recall the last time we saw such a potent ULL stacking with such a respectable main low pressure center complex. And as if that were not enough, the contrast in temperature behind the front from the surface atmosphere ahead of the front is far greater than originally forecast.

Call me crazy but this is an unusual situation here, as I have been saying for the last day or so. It is really hard to know just what will happen later on tonight. It could be almost nothing or it could be quite something big, or it could be anything in between those two extremes. Local mets have been saying exactly that since late this afternoon.

Not sure what all FL dwellers were expecting, but the most interesting thing about this wx coming through the NW Bahamas according to our met. is that the front's supposed to pass us between tomorrow and Monday, then back up over us between Wednesday and Thursday.

Somehow, despite the rainy overcastiness of all this, I don't think this can be genuinely construed as "the start of the rainy season"..... lol

Looks like some of that stolen energy is about to hit N Andros and the Berry Islands. I'm kind of interested now to see if we will actually get any serious wx here overnight....

I hope that it stays FAR away from us here on the plateau. It is absolutely the last thing we need here right now. Middle Tennessee is often called the Nursery Capital of the world, and the area has several geographical advantages that makes it an excellent location for growing trees and shrubs. We have had one freeze already that has damaged some of the more sensitive plants. If something significant were to happen, it could hurt our growers and our local economy.
