More Water For California: New Enormous Water Works Programs Are Expensive

Dr. Jeff Masters, April 18, 2014

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

From November 2013 - January 2014, a remarkably extreme jet stream pattern set up over North America, bringing the infamous "Polar Vortex" of cold air to the Midwest and Eastern U.S., and a "Ridiculously Resilient Ridge" of high pressure over California, which brought the worst winter drought conditions ever recorded to that state. A new study by Utah State scientist S.-Y. Simon Wang found that this jet stream pattern was the most extreme on record, and likely could not have grown so extreme without the influence of human-caused global warming.

What is the right diagnosis?

Dr. Ricky Rood, April 21, 2014

Professor, University of Michigan

There is no world in which we live that is uninfluenced by our emissions of many pollutants, including carbon dioxide, and our changes to the land and oceans. We make a mistake if we dismiss human-induced climate change as not influencing the weather each and every day.

Throwing a jerkbait can lead to huge fish the ones you'll see here! When the ice leaves, and water temps are in the 40s, a jerk should be your best friend!

A Warm Winter in Alaska

Christopher C. Burt, April 18, 2014

Weather Historian, Weather Underground

In contrast to much of the contiguous U.S., the National Weather Service (NWS) in Alaska noted in a post this week that Alaska has enjoyed its third warmest ‘winter’ on record for 2013-2014. The period of time they are calling ‘winter’ is for the six months of October 2013 through 2014. Here are a few details.

I am a Failed Father

Shaun Tanner, April 17, 2014

Senior Meteorologist, Weather Underground

Being a father is very hard! I know, I sound like a whiner, but I felt especially bad this week when I caused my daughter to miss the lunar eclipse.

Portlight Conference, New Jersey

Portlight, April 8, 2014

Disaster Relief Organization

Shelter and transportation accessibility are of paramount importance to people with disabilities in disaster situations. All too often in recent events these considerations have gone unaddressed...putting the lives of people with disabilities in grave danger. For shelter operators, addressing the needs of people living with disabilities can be a complex and confusing issue.

Cool and stormy weather pattern continues through mid March

Zachary Labe, March 12, 2014

Northeast Weather Analyst

A wintry pattern will continue as a series of troughs rotate through the Northeast over the next two weeks. Several shortwaves will have the potential to amplify into larger storm systems. A period of interest for winter weather revolves around St. Patrick's Day. Stay tuned!
