More Floods and Evacuations in California--Plus Wind Gusts Topping 190 MPH

Dr. Jeff Masters, February 21, 2017

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

The atmospheric river that slammed the central third of California on Monday left its mark in multiple ways, including what could end up as the highest reliably recorded wind gusts for the state. Fortunately, the storm underperformed somewhat when it came to rainfall, much like its older sibling that hit southern California last Friday. Even so, the rains of the last week have caused plenty of havoc statewide.

Organization, Presence: Adaptive Management in the Trump Administration

Dr. Ricky Rood, February 3, 2017

Professor, University of Michigan

Christopher C. Burt, December 20, 2016

Weather Historian, Weather Underground

Winter has descended with a vengeance for much of the nation this December. Although heavy snow has fallen in many areas no all-time snow records have yet been set so far with the exception of Binghamton, New York where a new single-storm snowfall record of 27.6” occurred on November 19-22. However, the city’s 24-hour snowfall record of 23.0” on February 2-3, 1961 was not matched.
