Atlantic Tropical Depression #2 Weakens to TROF as it Heads for Caribbean

Dr. Jeff Masters, July 23, 2014

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

(By Steve Gregory - Substituting for Dr. Masters who is on Vacation.)

Former Tropical Depression #2 is estimated to be near 14.1N / 56.2W or about 300NM east of the CARIB, and is heading westward (290ᵒ) at 17Kts. Imagery loops along with a few surface OBS any clearly indicate TD #2 opened-up into an inverted TROF early this AM; and one with a minimum of significant convection.


Fig 1: The above VIS (left) and Enhanced IR (right) image of former TD #2 depicts an extremely weak and poorly organized area of convection.

Monday It Will be 80 degrees in Yellowknife

Dr. Ricky Rood, July 13, 2014

Professor, University of Michigan

As the polar vortex mutated through the media, it was recognized early as naïve, mocked by comedians, dismissed as scientifically imprecise and politicized. It then becomes a trigger, that supports the doubt that is the goal of the political argument to disrupt climate-change and energy policy. This is a case when the pursuit of simple metaphors and snappy descriptions of complex events fuels the rhetoric. It is a fundamentally flawed tactic of communication and a fundamentally robust way to capture attention and fuel disruption. We must do better.

Warmest Days of the Year for the U.S.

Christopher C. Burt, July 9, 2014

Weather Historian, Weather Underground

NOAA recently produced an interesting map showing when the hottest day of the year is likely to occur in the contiguous U.S. Complimenting this map is one produced by Brian Brettschneider of Borealis Scientific, LLC, which illustrates the date of summer’s midpoint (peak of summer average temperatures) which was reproduced in my blog posted last August. Brian has also produced maps of such for the Fall, Winter and Spring seasons. There is also some other great material from Brian herein.

Benign Summer Pattern Continues

Zachary Labe, June 27, 2014

Northeast Weather Analyst

The stagnent weather pattern across the eastern United States suggests any anomalous warm spells will be short lived and that an average to below average temperature regime will remain.
