Updated Streak Dissection

Six months ago I began to dig more into National Center for Environmental Information data in relation to the record long “streak” of consecutive months of more daily high records than lows across the U.S. I posted information here: http://www.guyonclimate.com/2017/04/09/streaking-past-a-tipping-point/ and here: http://www.guyonclimate.com/2017/04/12/streak-dissection/ As of September 2017 the streak has reached 34 months starting in […]

Heat Dome Verification and Tropical Ramifications

Yesterday and today, 10/3 and 10/4/17, are the days I alluded to in “Weird, Warm and Spooky” in which I wrote that I hadn’t seen a heat dome of this magnitude forecast in October in my 35 year career as a meteorologist: http://www.guyonclimate.com/2017/09/25/warm-weird-and-spooky/ The piece was […]

Tropical Cyclone Land Interactions… A Proposal

In the original 1960s Star Trek there was an episode involving a “doomsday” automated planet killer machine that Captain Kirk figured out how to stop […]

Forecasting a Warm? Fall 2017

I’m going to quote myself from late spring when I attempted to make a summer forecast: “Forecasting for a season is perhaps the most difficult, and as the public knows, most unreliable product put out by any group be it those, for example, from NOAA or people putting together The Old Farmers Almanac. If farmers, power companies, construction companies, those […]
