Dr. Jeff Masters, May 30, 2015

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground



As this memorable month sloshes toward its final weekend, rainfall records have continued to accumulate across the Southern Plains. May is already the wettest month on record in the statewide averages for both Oklahoma and Texas. When an event like this happens, it’s human nature to wonder just how unusual it is. Climate change has added urgency to such questions, but even in a constant (“stationary”) climate, precise answers on the rarity of heavy rain at a given location can be hard to come by.

Hottest Summers, Coldest Winters for Contiguous U.S.: A Few Years Loom Large

Christopher C. Burt, May 28, 2015

Weather Historian, Weather Underground

Keeping track of all-time warmest/coldest daily maximum temperatures and all-time warmest/coldest months on record for any given site is a fairly easy task. However, very few NWS sites provide data concerning what their respective coldest climatological winters (December-February) or hottest climatological summers (June-August) have been.

Sustainability: Essential Research and Education

Dr. Ricky Rood, May 19, 2015

Professor, University of Michigan

Since sustainability crosses many disciplines, it is, in fact, quite difficult to bring into the discipline-focused culture of universities. It brings a focus to problem solving and participatory, deliberative process. There is a high demand from students, who increasingly see the requirement to manage our resources and wastes in order to thrive. Sustainability is an essential topic of research and education.

Zachary Labe, November 25, 2014

Northeast Weather Analyst

Precipitation will develop and expand across much of the Northeast by early morning Wednesday. Marginal cold air will limit the heaviest snow accumulations across inland locations along the foothills of the Appalachians. Most areas east of there will face slushy accumulations of less than three inches in addition to some rain.
