Huge 99L Generating 55 mph Winds, But Remains Disorganized

Dr. Jeff Masters, August 24, 2016

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

A huge and powerful tropical wave (Invest 99L) is generating winds of tropical storm force near the Virgin Islands, and could become a tropical storm at any time over the next two days as it heads west-northwest at 15 mph towards The Bahamas. If 99L develops a well-defined surface circulation, it will be called Tropical Storm Hermine.

Evangeline and Mathilda: Louisiana is Our Netherlands

Dr. Ricky Rood, August 23, 2016

Professor, University of Michigan

This event brings me face to face with the idea of necessary losses. If I were in a flood that did not go away, I would lose my emotional hold on land and geography. I would want to move.

Nothing Easy with Invest 99-L

Bryan Norcross, August 24, 2016

Hurricane Specialist, The Weather Channel

Nothing is getting easier with the tropical system centered down near Puerto Rico. On one hand, it is showing no signs of organizing. On the other, the models still insist there is some chance of a disruptive system approaching or near South Florida over the weekend.

Hottest Reliably Measured Air Temperatures on Earth: PART TWO

Christopher C. Burt, August 19, 2016

Weather Historian, Weather Underground

In my previous blog I discussed the various contenders for what might be the hottest reliably measured air temperatures on Earth. That blog focused on those that were most likely not reliable for various reasons. In this blog I will briefly list those that I believe to be the most reliably measured. This takes into account such factors as climatology (general and specific to the sites at time of observation), properly exposed instrumentation, and good correspondence with other temperature observations in the vicinity of the record-breaking site(s).

First Rain of the Season for Southern California

Zachary Labe, September 13, 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.
