Brazil, California Face Specter of Worsening Drought

Dr. Jeff Masters, January 30, 2015

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

January has not been kind to two parched corners of the Americas. A large chunk of California’s San Francisco Bay area is wrapping up the month with no measurable rainfall, a first for January since records began, and reservoirs serving São Paulo, Brazil, are perilously close to running completely dry in the midst of the region’s worst drought since at least 1930.

Changing the Headlines: Riffing on Revkin

Dr. Ricky Rood, January 26, 2015

Professor, University of Michigan

No doubt, “warmest ever” headlines obscure what is important about climate change. It takes what is expected and makes it into inconsequential headlines. It is simplistic in many ways to make this persistently premiere news. It plays into maintaining a conversation that is isolating of the subject of climate change. It consumes the energy and resources of scientists in fundamentally nonproductive ways. It helps the denialists frame the conversation. We need to learn to embrace the complexity, simply, rather that trying to communicate the complexity simplistically.

Bryan Norcross, January 29, 2015

Hurricane Specialist, The Weather Channel

There’s a lot of talk in the weather business these days about how the forecast is communicated. If we could just better convey forecast uncertainty, the thought goes, people would better understand the forecast. I'll explain why I don't think this a good idea, and could make things worse.

26-27 November 2014 Nor'easter

Zachary Labe, November 25, 2014

Northeast Weather Analyst

A low pressure will develop off the Southeast coast and move northeastward along the stalled front off the eastern seaboard. 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.
