Morocco hits 121°F (49.6°C): a national all-time heat record

The first new all-time national temperature record of 2012 belongs to Morocco, thanks to the 121.3°F (49.6°C) temperature measured at Marrakech on July 17, 2012. According to the Wunderground International Records data base maintained by our weather historian, Christopher C. Burt, the previous record was 120.4°F (49.1°C) at Agadir on July 30, 2009. A hotter temperature of 51.7°C (125.1°F) was reported from Aghadir (Agadir) Souss Massa Dra region on 17 August 1940 during a chergui wind event. However, this reading is considered unreliable by weather records researcher Maximiliano Herrera, since the temperature was 6°C higher than that measured at nearby stations.

Seven nations set all time heat records in 2011. Nineteen nations (plus the the U.K.'s Ascension Island) set all-time extreme heat records in 2010. One nation (Zambia, in 2011) set an all-time cold record during the period 2010 - 2012. With a very hot airmass in place over much of North Africa, the Middle East, and Western Asia the remainder of this week, more all-time national heat records may fall.


Figure 1. A sample image of what the new Fire Risk layer on our wundermap looks like. This is the Keetch-Byram Drought Index, one of several indices that can be used to measure fire risk. Blue and green colors represent lower risks, while yellow and orange colors show higher risk. The highest risk is shown in dark red. The legend for the Fire Risk layer explains that these highest risk areas are often associated with more severe drought with increased wildfire occurrence. Intense, deep burning fires with significant downwind spotting can be expected. Live fuels can also be expected to burn actively at these levels.

Wunderground releases new fire risk layer on its wundermap
Our interactive wundermap, which allows one to overlay multiple meteorological data sets, has a new layer: a Fire Risk layer. Using data from the U.S. Forest Service's Wildland Fire Assessment System, we give you option to plot up U.S. fire danger using a variety of options: Fire Danger Rating, Lower Atmosphere Stability (Haines Index), Keetch-Byram Drought Index, 10-hr Dead Fuel Moisture, 100-hr Dead Fuel Moisture, and 1000-hr Dead Fuel Moisture. According to the National Interagency Fire Center, California currently has the most number of of large fires burning of any state (5), which makes sense, given what the fire risk map above is showing.

MEXICAN drug cartels laundered billions of dollars through HSBC%u2019s US operations because of its lax controls, an investigation has found.

The shock report by a US Senate committee also claimed that the British-based bank provided services to some lenders in Saudi Arabia and Bangladesh believed to have helped fund al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups.

The scandal today forced the bank's head of compliance to resign in front of a US Senate subcommittee.

Global warming is not an election issue because the streets of Manhattan are not flooding yet. Both political parties are painfully weak on issues that involve change. Master's blog has been about global climate change most of the time, so I don't see how talking about the miserable state of the political side of that is inappropriate here. I don't blame it on one party or another. It's just pathetic.


I honest don't know why they don't just change the name of the website, since the takeover by the weather channel..perhaps Climate Change Overground or the AGW webpage, as there are so few blogs on the main blog ,recently about weather

Then again, a large part of the reason the United States is doing so little about the rapid warming is because of politics--one party in particular. So, while politics for politics' sake may be off-topic here, it's almost impossible to talk about possible solutions to the climate problem without discussing the hurdles posed by politics, politicians, and that party...



Exactly. If they spent half the energy they devote towards that single topic, on other things that politicians should be doing (like the debt, job creation, etc.), this country would be doing quite a bit better...

But solving problems isn't a good plan. Better to just guarantee a job for yourself.

Fair enough, it did feel like a troll question and I thought about changing it. But it really wasn't meant to be political on one side or the other, and it is related to the topic of extreme weather, crop failures, etc..

I don't see geoengineering as an issue in this election. To me it seems like the 800 lb gorilla in the corner, but maybe that is just my view. I was wondering what other people thought, why this issue hasn't become an issue (yet) given how vital it is.

Spooky Channel, Roatan, Honduras - sit out on the dock at night when the power is out (a lot, in the '90s at least), a night so dark you can hardly see the island against a black sky filled with stars, and the milky way cutting the sky like a ribbon almost, and then heat lightning arcs from one horizon almost to the other showing clouds so thin they don't obstruct the stars and are only visible backlit by the lightning. Then in the water, phosphorescence and relections of star.... amazing.


Speaking of a beautiful planet, why is global warming not an election year issue? I understand the republicans can't use it since their low IQ LBO in the Bush years, but surely the dems would be interested? Or is it that they want to win and then address the issue? Surelyt that is a little chicken hearted of them, no?

Just wondering are we likely to get a system striking further west in the GOM first, which is opposite of 2005 and 2008? In 2005, Katrina hit east followed by Rita striking further west, and similar in 2008, Gustav hit east followed by Ike striking further west. Farmers Almanac says W Gulf chance in Aug then E Gulf in Sept, which is opposite those 2 years, if it indeed happens.


Maybe because of El-Nino. Remember with El-nino you tend to get stronger fronts earlier than normal charging south so this could affect stearing a great deal as we head toward the middle of September. These storms could miss the US all together or sneak into the Caribbean and then make that Turn N or NE toward the eastern Gulf in response to strong troughs coming in later in September.

Right now, Severe Tropical Storm Khanun is affecting southern S. Korea. It is expected to move NNW, then N to NNE, ultimately bringing rain to the western parts of the Korean Peninsula, including Seoul, where I am currently at right now.
Here is the latest satellite image:


According to the KMA (Korean Meteorological Agency), 50~120mm (2~5 in) of rain is expected in northern S. Korea.


In regards to Severe Tropical Storm Khanun, a station in southern South Korea is reporting 72mph sustained winds according to WU.
