A Mostly Mild and Dry January for U.S., Punctuated by Big Storms

Dr. Jeff Masters, February 11, 2016

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

The strong El Niño event dubbed “Godzilla” by one oceanographer behaved more like a hero than a monster in January, at least when it came to conditions across the United States. Mild and dry weather prevailed over much of the nation, and where it was wet or snowy, the moisture was generally well predicted and widely appreciated, apart from a titanic Northeast snowstorm.

Won't cha let me take you on a sea cruise? (It's about the hiatus.)

Dr. Ricky Rood, February 1, 2016

Professor, University of Michigan

I have a friend going a sea cruise, and he’ll be talking about climate change. He is expecting questions about the warming hiatus. Now, I don’t know what my readers think about scientists on vacation, but this sounds about right. I promised a summary of what has happened to the hiatus distraction since the last cruise.

California: What a Difference a Month Makes

Christopher C. Burt, January 8, 2016

Weather Historian, Weather Underground

One month ago I posted a blog about the precipitation deficits that were endemic in California at that time (December 9, 2015) but just prior to the beginning of a series of storms that rolled in. As was expected, the storm door opened and remains open. Here is where California now stands as of January 9th, 2016 precipitation-wise. Looking a lot better!

Why the Arrest of a Science-Loving 14-year-old Matters

Shaun Tanner, September 16, 2015

Senior Meteorologist, Weather Underground

By now, many of you have heard or read about the arrest of Ahmed Mohamed, a 14-year-old high school student from Irving, Texas. Ahmed was arrested because school officials called the police after he showed one of his teachers his homemade clock. Mistaken for a bomb, Ahmed was taken into custody, interrogated, shamed, suspended (still on suspension today, Wednesday), and reprimanded. All of this after it has been found that the "device" he brought to school was indeed, a homemade clock.

Hurricane hype and a faux state of emergency converge to make Erika worth revisiting.

First Rain of the Season for Southern California

Zachary Labe, September 13, 2015

Northeast Weather Analyst

The remnants of Hurricane Linda will track toward southern California in addition to a deepening trough. This will allow for a moist, upslope flow to provide the first widespread rain of the fall season across the region.
