Hurricane Seymour Gains Steam in East Pacific

Dr. Jeff Masters, 24 oktober 2016

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

Hurricane Seymour, the first named storm in more than three weeks over the East Pacific, could become a major hurricane late Tuesday or Wednesday. Seymour is expected to remain well out to sea throughout the week, although its remnants could feed into a storm system expected to strike California next weekend. Seymour adds to what has been an even busier season in the Central and Eastern Pacific than forecasters had expected.

An Investigation of Death Valley’s 134°F World Temperature Record

Christopher C. Burt, 24 oktober 2016

Weather Historian, Weather Underground

In 2012 the WMO (World Meteorological Organization) disallowed what had long been considered the hottest air temperature ever measured on Earth: a 58.0°C (136.4°F) reading measured at El Azizia, Libya on September 13, 1922. As a result of this record being struck from the books, the temperature of 134°F (56.7°C) recorded at Greenland Ranch at Furnace Creek in Death Valley, California on July 10, 1913 became, by default, the new world’s hottest air temperature yet measured. In this guest blog we will investigate the credibility of that measurement. This blog is courtesy of William T. Reid, a geographer and climatologist who has been studying the desert climate of California and, in particular, the Death Valley temperature record for some 30 years. Mr. Reid and I worked together to come to a commensurate conclusion regarding the validity of this significant planetary weather record: It is possible to demonstrate that a temperature of 134°F in Death Valley on July 10, 1913, was essentially not possible from a meteorological perspective, using an officially sanctioned USWB shelter and thermometer and following proper procedures observationally. Thus, the best explanation for the record high report(s) in July 1913 is observer error.

All of my professional career, I have lobbied for the temperature, 32 degrees Fahrenheit, to be called the melting point of ice. Perhaps it was the stubbornness of youth that made me so insistent. As ...

First Rain of the Season for Southern California

Zachary Labe, 13 september 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.
