What Do the Latest Climate Assessments Tell Us about Nor’easters?

Dr. Jeff Masters, January 29, 2015

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

An ever-lengthening procession of winter storms has marched across the mid-Atlantic and Northeast over the last few years. Recent overviews of national and global climate indicate that, as a whole, the most intense rainstorms and snowstorms in the northeast U.S. are growing even more intense.

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.

Are We Kicking the Forecast Can Down the Road?

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.
