Tornado Quest Top Ten Science Links For December 10 – 17, 2018

Greetings to one and all! If you’re celebrating the holidays, I hope your season is going well. Here in much of the Northern Hemisphere, we’d all like a white Christmas, but that’s actually the exception to the rule for most areas. Speaking of winter weather, I’ve also included the Winter Weather Safety links again this week. There’s plenty of other topics to cover, so let’s get started.

 

WINTER WEATHER SAFETY

With the onset of winter weather events in full swing across much of the Northern Hemisphere, it’s never too late to review winter weather safety information. These links will help you get started.

Tornado Quest Top Ten Science Links For December 3 – 10, 2018

Greetings everyone! We’ve had quite an interesting start to December across parts of North America with severe weather episodes from Texas and Oklahoma into Illinois. Fortunately, there haven’t been any crippling winter storms that have left lasting effects in their wake. Considering we’re just starting meteorological winter in the Northern Hemisphere, there are many weeks of opportunities left for that. As usual, plenty of other topics to cover, so let’s get started.

Tornado Quest Top Ten Science Links For November 26 – December 3, 2018

Greetings everyone! Here’s some good news…the Atlantic hurricane season for 2018 has officially ended. This will be a year that won’t be forgotten soon with Hurricane Michael devastating a vast area of Florida and Georgia. Winter weather has made quite a showing across much of North America with more to come…hence the inclusion this week of a few winter weather safety links. There are plenty of other topics to go over, so let’s get started.

Tornado Quest Top Ten Science Links For November 19 – 26, 2018

Greetings everyone! There’s some badly needed good news today…and that is NASA’s successful landing of the InSight lander on the planet Mars! The latest USA government climate change report is out and the California wildfires are still very much in the news…so let’s get started.

For the last time for the 2018 season, I’m sharing the Hurricane Preparedness link. The Atlantic tropical cyclone season is winding down. Regardless of the month, it’s never to early or late to prepare. In fact, preparing in the “off-season” is a great idea. Items you need will be easier to obtain. Many of these supplies are also useful in severe weather and/or winter storm conditions.

Tornado Quest Top Ten Science Links For November 12 – 19, 2018

Greetings to one and all! The devastating California wildfires have been front and center the past few days. The recovery, as with any other natural disaster, will take months if not years. There’s also a great deal to learn from wildfires and no doubt a vast amount of data will be collected in the weeks to come. Lets take a look at some links regarding the wildfires plus a few other topics.

Smoke from northern California wildfires can be seen drifting westward across the eastern Pacific ocean in this NOAA image.

Once again this week I’m sharing the Hurricane Preparedness link. Regardless of the month, it’s never to early or late to prepare. Tropical or subtropical cyclones in November are not unheard of…so best be prepared even if there’s a bit of a chill in the wind at your location.

A Hurricane Preparedness Primer

For those of you who live in hurricane prone regions, this page will give you a starting point on preparedness. This link will be posted each week until the end of the Atlantic tropical cyclone season. If you’ve not prepared for a tropical cyclone, it’s not too late in the season. You an also prepare for next year any month of the year. We’ve a few more weeks left for tropical cyclone formation. Substantial hurricanes and tropical storms have occurred in November…and will occur again. Also, here’s a reminder on how to manage the plethora of social media outlets and information, both good and bad, during the tropical cyclone season. This is also applicable to any weather event year round; winter weather, severe weather, etc.

Tornado Quest Top Ten Science Links For November 5 – 12, 2018

Greetings everyone! I hope the weather has been to your liking regardless of where you live. It’s been a tranquil November in the tropical Atlantic, but there’s still a possibility for development until late November and early December. The big news is the ongoing wildfires in California which, as of this post, have killed over two dozen people. We’ll look at those fires, plus many other topics. Let’s get started.

Last but not least, I’m continuing to share the Hurricane Preparedness link. Regardless of the month, it’s never to early or late to prepare. There is an area of interest as of 11 November 2018 in the Caribbean that bears watching. Tropical or subtropical cyclones in November are not unheard of…so best be prepared even if there’s a bit of a chill in the wind at your location.

Tornado Quest Top Ten Science Links For October 22 – 29, 2018

Greetings everyone! I hope the weather is to your liking wherever you are. Across much of North America, foliage is at its peak for the autumn season and that’s a very welcome sight especially in the wake of devastation left behind by Hurricane Michael. There are several weeks left in the Atlantic hurricane season and that’s plenty of time for more storms to form. Many other topics to go over, so let’s get started.

Tornado Quest Top Ten Science Links For October 15 – 22, 2018

Greetings to one and all! For much of North America, the weather has been quite tranquil in recent days, which is a badly needed respite after Hurricane Michael devastated vast areas of several southeastern USA states. The true scope of damage and death toll is still unknown and months, if not years, of recovery are ahead. There’s plenty of other topics to cover, so let’s get started.

Tornado Quest Top Ten Science Links For October 8 – 15, 2018

Greetings to one and all! This has been an exceptional weather and climate week in every way. Hurricane Michael proved to be a devastating event in terms of damage…the scope of which we are just beginning to grasp the extent of less than a week after it is 10 October 2018 landfall on the Florida panhandle. In meteorological terms, it will rank as one of the top ten most powerful hurricanes to affect the USA. From very modest beginnings as a diffuse low pressure center on 2 October 2018, it grew into a cluster of thunderstorms east of Central America. Hurricane Michael then took advantage of optimal atmospheric conditions and unseasonably warm Gulf of Mexico water temperatures to intensify to a hurricane that was a high-end Category 4 storm. The latest IPCC UN climate report also got a considerable amount of attention and is certainly a subject that needs to be addressed immediately.
