Weather Whiplash: Floods Hit Buffalo as 62°F Temperatures Melt Huge Snowpack

Dr. Jeff Masters, November 24, 2014

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

It's weather whiplash in Buffalo, New York, where the temperature surged to 62°F at 11 am EST Monday, following a week of near record cold and heavy snow. The exceptional warmth would be welcome if not for the massive snowpack on the ground along a swath across the southern and eastern suburbs of Buffalo, where last week's extreme lake effect snow storm dumped up to 88" of snow at Cowlesville.

Christopher C. Burt, November 22, 2014

Weather Historian, Weather Underground

October was globally the warmest such on record according to NOAA (see Jeff Master’s blog for more about this). Extreme heat waves affected southern South America and California with exceptional warmth in Europe and Australia as well. Intense rainfalls plagued southern France and Italy. Deadly flooding and mudslides occurred in Sri Lanka. A blizzard in Nepal killed at least 43 trekkers and their guides. Hurricane Gonzalo was the first CAT 4 tropical storm in three years to form in the Atlantic Basin and struck Bermuda. Typhoon Vongfong was the Earth’s most powerful storm of the year.

The Science of Barometric Pressure, Part II

Jim Root, November 20, 2014

Professional Bass Angler

In my last blog post I introduced the facts of Barometric Pressure (BP) as they relate to fishing, and offered some tips as to how it may relate to behavior and eating habits for bass in North America. Here in part 2 of that piece I'm going to detail how Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass relate to different BPs and their changes at my favorite body of water and frequent stop on the Bassmaster Elite Series and host to the second Bass Pro Shops Northern Open trail for 2015, the legendary Lake Oneida in Syracuse NY.
