93L in Middle Atlantic Close to Tropical Depression Status

Dr. Jeff Masters, July 29, 2014

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

An area of disturbed weather about 1600 miles east of the Lesser Antilles Islands, (93L), has the potential to develop into a tropical depression by Wednesday, but is struggling with high wind shear today. Visible satellite loops on Tuesday morning showed improved organization to 93L with more spin and some low-level spiral bands beginning to form, but infrared satellite images showed that the system's heavy thunderstorm activity had diminished somewhat since Monday.

This place is not for the faint of heart, nor the weak stomached.Lake Champlain, in all its beauty and majestic landscape has been brutally unkind to open up the second stop on the Bassmaster Northern Open trail.

Models and Planning for Climate Change

Dr. Ricky Rood, July 25, 2014

Professor, University of Michigan

Is this actionable knowledge? The answer for many is an, obvious, yes, because people, corporations and governments are taking actions. What is missing in action is any rational, national or global approach to reduce emissions and, therefore, to bound the changes to our weather and climate as incremental changes to our history of the past few centuries. This leads to a situation where the actions that we take are in many ways temporary patches, because over decades and the next few centuries, we will be reliably warming up and sea level will relentlessly rise. There is much more difficultly predicting changes to ecosystems, agriculture, pathogens, political systems and nations. This will require anticipation, to which models will contribute, and the willingness and flexibility to spend on adaptive strategies if we are to obtain societal stability. Those who view models as providing actionable knowledge are more likely to succeed. Otherwise, we will be like those who lived on the shore of modern Turkey at the end of last glacial period, chasing the retreating glaciers and their water into the mountains with their goats and sheep.

Despite the current lackluster El Nino, SST anomalies are expected to rise over the next few months. This may foretell some signs for the upcoming winter across the east.

This season, we hope to deploy a disaster shelter trailer, similar to the one below, which will help us assist shelter operators in making their facilities fully accessible to people with all types of disabilities. This will include ramping, railings, cots, dinner- and drinkware, and assistive technologies for those with vision, hearing, cognitive and developmental delays.
