MATMO Approaches Taiwan Coast as Atlantic TD#2 continues Westward

Dr. Jeff Masters, July 22, 2014

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

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

Latest SAT and Radar imagery shows Typhoon MATMO approaching the Taiwanese east coast and is currently about 65 NM S-SE of Taipei. With a NW movement at 16 Kts, MATMO should hit the east coast within the next hour or so. Radar indicates strong convective bands have been impacting the Island for the last 4-6 hours.



Fig 1: IR imagery clearly shows MATMO has gotten much better organized since yesterday, but with so little time left for higher level winds to work their way...

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.

This will include ramping, railings, cots, dinner- and drinkware, and assistive technologies for those with vision, hearing, cognitive and developmental delays.

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.
