Storm Chaser: A Photographer's Journey ($23.10 from Amazon) takes the reader on a spectacular photographic journey through the U.S., documenting four seasons of our beautiful and violent weather. Author Jim Reed makes a business of weather photography, and has spent over 15 years chasing storms and documenting their awesome beauty and violent destructive power. The 191-page book would make a perfect Christmas coffee table book for that weather enthusiast (yourself?) in the family, and has great photos of tornadoes, hurricanes, hailstorms, blizzards, sunsets, and lightning. The book is mostly photos, but there are several riveting stories Reed tells. Most captivating is the story of his encounter with Category 4 Hurricane Charley as it pounded Punta Gorda, Florida in 2004. Reed miscalculated his time needed to get to shelter, and got caught in his vehicle on the road in the eyewall. Luckily, his videotaped farewell for mother and friends done during the height of the storm was not needed, as he was able to find shelter during the 4-minute passage of the eye. Reed also braved Hurricane Katrina from the beach front, and tells an abbreviated version of his dramatic encounter with the hurricane from Gulfport, Mississippi. I also recommend Hurricane Katrina Through the Eyes of Storm Chasers ($14.96 from Amazon) to read the full tale of his Katrina experience.

Storm Chaser: A Photographer's Journey has a few flaws. The quality of the writing is not quite as high as that of my favorite storm chaser book, the now dated 1996 Warren Faidley book, Storm Chaser: In pursuit of untamed skies (no longer in print, but available used). Reed's text doesn't match up with the photos presented on the pages in places, and he makes a number of unwarranted connections between global warming and extreme weather events. For example, he blames the June 22, 2003 fall of volley ball-sized hailstones in Aurora, Kansas on global warming. No single weather event can be attributed to climate change--all we can say is that the probabilities of some extreme weather events have increased. For example, the incidence of extreme precipitation events (the heaviest 1% of rain storms) has increased 20% over the U.S. in recent decades. No scientific papers have been published showing a link between tornadoes or hailstorms and climate change. That quibble aside, I heartily recommend Storm Chaser: A Photographer's Journey. The photos are fantastic. Three and a half stars out of four.

Where do I find the yellow center plot thing that you have on your dvorak image?


Its called the cloud system center or CSC. That there was put there to help persons performing the dvorak intensity tecnhique. Its not mines. The site is on WU Tropical front page. But if u would like to find it on ur own...its the focal point of cloud bands or the geometrical center and when all that fails u can use the geographic center or remote sensing..like quikscat, microwave, radar, etc.

Although I did check CIMSS ADT and it says CDO


be careful when comparing ur results with ADT. For example...CDO patterns can only be assigned using Visible imagery but yet they are using infrared imagery and is maybe becuz their estimates where derived digitally.. Just read and u will see.

yep....if u plot it against the CSC grid found below...u get a curved band about 0.60 arc. One thing u must always remember is to follow the rules as much as possible, but if ur not satisfy with resulting CI...judge for urself to raise it or lower it. U can use quikscat, microwave and other remote sensing instruments.

Year of global cooling

By David Deming - Al Gore says global warming is a planetary emergency. It is difficult to see how this can be so when record low temperatures are being set all over the world. In 2007, hundreds of people died, not from global warming, but from cold weather hazards.

Since the mid-19th century, the mean global temperature has increased by 0.7 degrees Celsius. This slight warming is not unusual, and lies well within the range of natural variation. Carbon dioxide continues to build in the atmosphere, but the mean planetary temperature hasn't increased significantly for nearly nine years. Antarctica is getting colder. Neither the intensity nor the frequency of hurricanes has increased. The 2007 season was the third-quietest since 1966. In 2006 not a single hurricane made landfall in the U.S.

South America this year experienced one of its coldest winters in decades. In Buenos Aires, snow fell for the first time since the year 1918. Dozens of homeless people died from exposure. In Peru, 200 people died from the cold and thousands more became infected with respiratory diseases. Crops failed, livestock perished, and the Peruvian government declared a state of emergency.

Unexpected bitter cold swept the entire Southern Hemisphere in 2007. Johannesburg , South Africa, had the first significant snowfall in 26 years. Australia experienced the coldest June ever. In northeastern Australia, the city of Townsville underwent the longest period of continuously cold weather since 1941. In New Zealand, the weather turned so cold that vineyards were endangered.

Last January, $1.42 billion worth of California produce was lost to a devastating five-day freeze. Thousands of agricultural employees were thrown out of work. At the supermarket, citrus prices soared. In the wake of the freeze, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger asked President Bush to issue a disaster declaration for affected counties. A few months earlier, Mr. Schwarzenegger had enthusiastically signed the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, a law designed to cool the climate. California Sen. Barbara Boxer continues to push for similar legislation in the U.S. Senate.

In April, a killing freeze destroyed 95 percent of South Carolina's peach crop, and 90 percent of North Carolina's apple harvest. At Charlotte, N.C., a record low temperature of 21 degrees Fahrenheit on April 8 was the coldest ever recorded for April, breaking a record set in 1923. On June 8, Denver recorded a new low of 31 degrees Fahrenheit. Denver's temperature records extend back to 1872.

Recent weeks have seen the return of unusually cold conditions to the Northern Hemisphere. On Dec. 7, St. Cloud, Minn., set a new record low of minus 15 degrees Fahrenheit. On the same date, record low temperatures were also recorded in Pennsylvania and Ohio.

Extreme cold weather is occurring worldwide. On Dec. 4, in Seoul, Korea, the temperature was a record minus 5 degrees Celsius. Nov. 24, in Meacham, Ore., the minimum temperature was 12 degrees Fahrenheit colder than the previous record low set in 1952. The Canadian government warns that this winter is likely to be the coldest in 15 years.

Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri are just emerging from a destructive ice storm that left at least 36 people dead and a million without electric power. People worldwide are being reminded of what used to be common sense: Cold temperatures are inimical to human welfare and warm weather is beneficial. Left in the dark and cold, Oklahomans rushed out to buy electric generators powered by gasoline, not solar cells. No one seemed particularly concerned about the welfare of polar bears, penguins or walruses. Fossil fuels don't seem so awful when you're in the cold and dark.

If you think any of the preceding facts can falsify global warming, you're hopelessly naive. Nothing creates cognitive dissonance in the mind of a true believer. In 2005, a Canadian Greenpeace representative explained “global warming can mean colder, it can mean drier, it can mean wetter.” In other words, all weather variations are evidence for global warming. I can't make this stuff up.

Global warming has long since passed from scientific hypothesis to the realm of pseudo-scientific mumbo-jumbo.

The Dvorak technique is a methodology to get estimates of tropical cyclone intensity from satellite pictures. Vern Dvorak developed the scheme using a pattern recognition decision tree in the early 1970s..Link

Your Welcome..
A good read by Max here,..

The early days of the Dvorak Technique at the National Hurricane Center

Max Mayfield, NOAA/NWS/NCEP/NHC, Miami, FL

The application of satellite derived location and intensity estimates using the Dvorak Technique at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) in the 1970s and 1980s will be discussed. Examples of successes as well as limitations will be shown by one of the first Dvorak analysts at the NHC. Link

Another cyclone that was offically unnamed but did reach tropical storm status. (Mauritius did not upgrade the system when the dvorak intensity was briefly at T3.0) The system is forecasted to stay below tropical storm status and become extratropical.

-------

As of 0000 AM UTC, Tropical Depression [996 hPa] located near 14.5S 82.0E or 2820 kms south-southwest of the coast of Reunion has 10 min sustained winds of 30 knots with gusts up to 45 knots. The depression is reported as moving south-southwest at 7 knots.

Dvorak Intensity: T2.5

Gale Warning Area
=====================
40 NM radius from the center
100 NM from the center in southern semi-circle

Forecast and Intensity
========================
12 HRS: 16.8S 82.3E - 30 knots (Depression Tropicale)
24 HRS: 18.2S 83.3E - 30 knots (Depression Tropicale)

Additional Information
======================
Location of the low level circulation center is estimated according to AMSU Microwave imagery at 2028z, which still shows a moderate northeasterly vertical wind shear. To be exact, the system has temporarily reached the moderate tropical storm intensity last night. (WINDSAT Imagery at 0031z, Where we estimate Dvorak intensity of 3.0), but mainly due to its persistant vertical wind shear it has rapidly weakened to its actual stage of tropical depression.

It should remain on the eastern part of th basin and track globally southward then southeastward before becoming extratropical over cooler sea surface temperature of less than 26C south of 20 south (20ºS).

The Dvorak Technique Explained

The Dvorak technique is a method using enhanced Infrared and/or visible satellite imagery to quantitatively estimate the intensity of a tropical system. Cloud patterns in satellite imagery normally show an indication of cyclogenesis before the storm reaches tropical storm intensity. Indications of continued development and/or weakening can also be found in the cloud features. Using these features, the pattern formed by the clouds of a tropical cyclone, expected systematic development, and a series of rules, an intensity analysis and forecast can be made. This information is then standardized into an intensity code. Link

Snow and sleet this morning in north-west N.C. Forcasters said a 20% of a sleet PELLET for the mountains above 3000f.t. 20% of a sprinkel east,(<3000f.t)


Wrong.


The folowing morning. The national weather service issued a winter weather advisory for the mountains. (The mountains got hardly nothing) East the temps were around 31. Sleet covered the ground.


This has been a similar pattern lately.

Morning sleet/freezing rain- Either not predicted or a 20% chance. Schools have to run on delays or close because the roads are not treated in the morning.

Also, I here the met here saying Alberta clippers do this alot.(Move fast and produce little) But this last one wasnt a clipper I dont think.Very little moisture with dry cold air.




Last winter we had nothing.This winter has already beat last year.(I dont even think it is even winter though.)Im pretty lucky this light moisture has been coming here around 2 to 7AM to get ice to close schools.

CENTRAL AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN REGION....

A surface trough extending from an Atlantic cold front at 24N/70W enters the region across Central Cuba near 22N/79W and extends across the Northwest Caribbean through 20N/81W to Honduras at 13N/86W. Scattered cloudiness and showers are across Cuba, the Northwest Caribbean and Gulf of Honduras west of 82W south of 20N, and along the Maya Mountains of Belize, Guatemala and Western Honduras. As for the remainder of the Western and Central Caribbean...a surge of tradewind moisture extending south of 15N from 70W to Central America.

Most of the Eastern Caribbean is experiencing fair weather due substantial mid-upper level dry air. The exception lies across the Southeast where upper level diffluent flow is producing showers across the Windward Islands and Tropical Atlantic.

....SYNOPSIS....

GULF OF MEXICO/NORTHWEST ATLANTIC OCEAN WEST OF 50W....

Visible satellite loops and surface observations indicated that a weak anticyclonic circulation across the Gulf of Mexico is providing moist onshore flow across Eastern Mexico, Texas and Louisiana. This flow is combining with the effects of a warm front across the area and the energy of the upper level westerlies to produce a swath of scattered to broken cloudiness and showers extending from Northern Mexico across the Deep South into the Southeast United Sates. Over the Gulf, a weak surface pressure pattern exist and thus the winds remain light and variable. The atmosphere is also convectively stable across the region with patches of low clouds and fog clearly seen across Gulf waters and the coastal areas of Mainland Mexico. Fair weather clouds is seen elsewhere.

A cold front extends from a surface trough at 24N/70W 27N/60W 30N/50W and beyond. Upper level winds continues drive multilayer cloudiness and showers within 150 nm either side of the frontal boundary. Meanwhile, extensive cloud air stratiform clouds are scattered across the Atlantic west of the front.
