  • The weekend's unseasonable record heat had prematurely "cooked" the color right out of the annual bloom of California poppies in the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve.The reserve in Lancaster is normally covered in orange blossoms right about now. But after the heatwave, the sun-facing southern slopes are filled with "desiccated orange petals ... left shriveled on the stalk,"
  • The National Weather Service said the river crested at around 6 a.m. at 57.7 feet, or seven feet below the 1997 level that caused severe, widespread flooding in the Cincinnati area and in Kentucky. Forecaster Brian Coniglio said the river will remain above the 52-foot flood stage most of the week. Melted snow and rainfalls caused flooding that swamped roads, businesses and homes in scattered low-lying areas in the Cincinnati region.
  • The blizzard warning continues for the summits of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, as snow is piling up high.The National Weather Service says the warning is in effect for Hawaii Island’s higher elevations – anything above 11,000 feet – until 6 p.m. Thursday. Forecasters expect an additional 2 to 4 inches of snow to fall. Temperatures are in the mid-20s, but its the wind that is extreme, gusting up to 85 miles per hour. Those who work on the summit – including snow removal crews – had to abandon their posts.
  • More than four inches of new snowfall greeted Stan Hooley, the chief executive officer of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, when he arrived in Fairbanks on Sunday, a day before the competitive race begins."Seems a little bit more like the Iditarod when you actually have some snow around," said Hooley.Warm temperatures have played havoc with the Iditarod all winter long as the same stalled jet stream that buried the eastern seaboard in snow has left Alaska unseasonable warm and dry. Officials last month decided conditions in the Alaska Range were so poor because of a lack of snow that the competitive start would be moved over the mountain range to Fairbanks. That wasn't the only change officials were considering, and the ceremonial start in Anchorage could have been moved to Fairbanks, as well, also because of the weather.
  • Much of the South was forecast to see temperatures drop 30 to 45 degrees in a 24-hour period thanks to yet another arctic cold front, according to the latest forecasts. Some locations may even see their coldest temperatures ever recorded so late in the season, including Nashville and Louisville, Kentucky, where temperatures may drop into the single digits.
  • The road to the summit of Mauna Kea remains closed due to ice and snow on the roadway. With the wind chill, temperatures have dropped to a bone chilling 12 degrees and forecasters say 10 to 15 inches of snow could fall.
  • As New England is hammered by another cruel winter storm, the Plains and Mountain West are breaking record high temperatures and getting a pleasant dose of vitamin D. On Saturday, Denver set a record high temperature of 74 degrees, breaking the old record by five degrees. The Texas Panhandle got a taste of summer on Friday and Saturday when temperatures peaked in the low to mid-80s – both days broke the record high.
  • The Mile High City’s winter heat wave means lots of folks will be outside this weekend, even hanging out on restaurant or coffee shop patios or just taking a nice, long stroll someplace.With that in mind, police took the time to warn women to pay attention to protecting their purses and cell phones.
  • While some area ski resorts are struggling to stay open, the unusually mild weather so early in the new year isn't bad news for everyone.Farmers at Walter's Fruit Ranch said they can't find anything wrong with this weather. Orchard operator Jason Morrell said as long as it lasts it will put them ahead of schedule."Mother Nature's really blessing us this year that we might get ahead," Morrell said.As of now Morrell said the orchard is about a month and a half ahead of schedule. They are already pruning and raking most of their trees.
  • hree Sisters Springs in Florida had to close a one acre plot of water to swimming and kayaking on Monday when over 300 manatees rapidly moved into the springs at an unexpected rate.
  • This year is the third in five years that scientists have seen such large numbers of strandings. Researchers say they worry about the long-term consequences of climate change and rising ocean temperatures on a sea lion population that has evolved over thousands of years to breed almost exclusively on the Channel Islands, relying on circulating flows of Pacific upwellings to bring anchovies, sardines and other prey.
  • The long drought in California is, of course, bad news for most in the agriculture business — but winemakers are seeing some real benefits. The lack of rain is actually leading to some of the best wine Napa and Sonoma counties have seen in a while:ess water means smaller grapes, and that concentrates the flavor, notes a vineyard president. Then there's the fact that a lot of rain can mean moldy grapes. On top of that, the sun is making grapes riper earlier, and that allows a harvest before the threat of autumn storms.
  • The traditional fire season has only just begun, and already in California firefighters have battled at least 1,000 more wildfires than in a typical year. So far this year, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection has sent crews to nearly 5,000 wildfires, which have charred a combined 92,139 acres on non-U.S. Forest Service land, according to a statewide fire activity update issued this week.
  • Tropical Storm Norbert, the fourteenth named storm of a busy eastern Pacific hurricane season, is on its way to becoming a hurricane.Norbert's wind shear, or change in winds with height, appears to be lessening. With a moist atmosphere and warm sea-surface temperatures, Norbert should intensify to a hurricane within the next 24 hours, or less. In fact, the National Hurricane Center says rapid intensification is a possibility, if shear relaxes sufficiently.
  • At 3:19 a.m. Sunday, Napa Valley was still its placid self, the leafy wine capital of America. Silent but for a few night owls, its upscale stores sat locked, the usual weekend rush of tourists still hours away.That all transformed in less time than it takes to pull a cork.Six miles away and nearly 7 miles beneath the Earth's surface, one of the area's spiderwebs of earthquake faults woke with a 6.0-magnitude fury at 3:20 a.m. - and when the local shaking stopped about five seconds later, a different Napa emerged.
  • Wildfires burning near Northern California vineyards and in the Yosemite National Park area were threatening hundreds of homes even as crews worked to contain them.A wildfire in northern California is threatening more than 500 homes this morning.The Sand Fire in the Sierra Nevada foothills east of Sacramento was 50 percent surrounded as of late Sunday, after burning 13 homes and 38 outbuildings. It has scorched roughly six square miles of rugged grassland and timber near wine-growing regions in Amador and El Dorado Counties.
  • More records were broken on Thursday across the central and southern portions of the United States as autumn like air maintained its grip on the eastern half of the country. More temperature records are likely to fall on Friday from the southern Plains to the Southeast with daytime temperatures not rising out of the 70s.
  • Though he left downed trees and power outages in his wake, Arthur is no longer classified as a hurricane.Downgraded to a post-tropical storm early Saturday, Arthur's powerful winds and heavy rain moved into southeastern Canada. They pelted the Canadian Maritime provinces after skidding by North Carolina on Friday, without causing major damage. Weakening as it churned its way up the coast, the storm hit Nova Scotia on Saturday, halting play for the day at a major golfing event. By midday Saturday, Arthur was centered about 95 miles west-northwest of Halifax, Nova Scotia, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center.
  • Recent crop reports by the U.S. Department of Agriculture said rain has taken a toll on Wisconsin's farms. A report on Monday said 3.2 days were suitable for field work across the state in the previous week. In the week before that, only 1.8 days were suitable. The main culprit in both reports was saturated soil. For example, the 16.7 inches of rain that fell in Appleton from April to June is 6.5 inches more than normal, the National Weather Service said.
  • East Coasters, if intense rains and strong winds ruin your Fourth of July holiday, you will have Arthur to blame.That's the name of the first named storm of the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season. Arthur is now churning off the coast of eastern Florida.
  • The two-fisted storm that pummeled the Chicago area this week has been classified as a rare double derecho: Two waves of destructive winds that swept across a swath of the Midwest from central Iowa to Ohio. The first derecho formed around 2 p.m. Monday in Iowa and sped across northwest Illinois into Wisconsin over the next five hours, packing winds of more than 55 mph, according to the National Weather Servic
  • Not only is this season’s cherry crop huge, but the individual cherries you pop in your mouth are larger, juicier and sweeter, too. Think “jumbo,” say growers.“Cherries from the Pacific Northwest are sizing larger than years past,” said Steve Lutz, vice president of marketing for Wenatchee-based Columbia Marketing International (CMI), one of the state’s largest fruit growers and shippers. “And sugar levels are at the top of the charts.” The bulk of the season’s dark sweet cherries are running one to two sizes larger than normal, Lutz said. That’s because spring weather ideal for cherries and a nicely spread tree bloom that gave cherries room to grow have combined this year, he said, “to produce exceptional fruit.”
  • Alaska had its eighth warmest winter and its second warmest first five months of a year since record keeping began nearly a century ago, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported in its monthly climate review, release on June 19.
  • In Ohio, as of May 25, 69 percent of corn was planted, compared with 87 percent at this time last year and a 74 percent five-year average, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Statistics Service
  • Weather officials in Albuquerque say a mysterious presence that showed up on its radar the last few nights has turned out to be of the insect variety. The National Weather Service says a swarm of grasshoppers were detected over Albuquerque's West Mesa for the fourth night in a row on Friday. Meteorologist Chuck Jones says the swarm got caught up in winds heading southwest and is being carried as high as 1,000 feet. Jones says the grasshoppers likely hatched weeks ago and are now grown, leading to their ability to trigger radar images.
  • The first hurricane of the eastern Pacific season formed hundreds of miles off Mexico's mainland coast Saturday and could become a major storm by Sunday though it poses no immediate threat to land, forecasters in Miami said.
  • There is still no sign of three men who disappeared after a massive mudslide hit near the Western Slope town of Collbran, on the Grand Mesa, following heavy rain. The three men went to the area to check on their irrigation water that had been disrupted.
  • Formosan termites are swarming throughout the New Orleans area on Thursday night (May 22), as a combination of meteorological conditions provided just the right conditions for the winged, reproductive version of the insect to leave their nests. Hundreds of termites were flittering around light poles in the French Quarter, and were reported flying at Zephyrs Field where an AAA baseball game was underway. The reproductive version of the insect, called alates, leaves nests in trees and buildings when temperatures are above 80 degrees, there is relatively high humidity conditions at and just after dusk, and wind speeds drop to zero to just 5 mph.
  • The severe and historic drought underway in California is expected to take a large financial bite out of the Golden State's agricultural sector -- and lead to thousands of jobs being cut. It's also projected to have additional impacts on the nation's food prices.A new study by the University of California, Davis' Center for Watershed Sciences says the state's ongoing dry conditions will deal a "severe blow" to irrigated agriculture and farm communities in California's Central Valley -- one of the most productive agricultural regions on earth -- while costing the state around $1.7 billion.
  • This week's unseasonably early wildfires have driven tens of thousands from their homes and shut down schools and amusement parks, including Legoland, which reopened Thursday. Flames have charred more than 15 square miles and caused more than $20 million in damage, burning at least eight houses, an 18-unit apartment complex and two businesses. Firefighters found a badly burned body Thursday in a transient camp in Carlsbad — the first apparent fatality — and a Camp Pendleton Fire Department firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion while battling a square-mile blaze on the Marine base.
  • An early spring melt-off has left much of Southwest Alaska primed for wildfires much earlier than usual. “Right now we’re basically calling it ‘snow-free,’” said Assistant Fire Management Officer Hans Smith, who’s based with the forestry department in McGrath. “We did a couple of flights last week out of the western area, from Iliamna down, from Crooked Creek down. It’s been hot and dry since then, so what little snow remained has probably melted off.” If so, that’s about two weeks earlier than an average year, according to Smith. Because this year’s minimal snowpack has melted away sooner than the start of green-up, fuels like grasses and even trees are drying out significantly, increasing the potential for fires.
  • Large schools of baitfish off the coast of Point Reyes, presenting a feast for birds and sea mammals and a strange sight for locals last month, may have been lured north and inland because of warmer ocean temperatures this year. A fisheries scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said it was too early to tell if the oceanographic conditions might indicate a coming El Niño, since those conditions can be highly variable from year to year; however, last month NOAA reported that the chances of an El Niño event kicking off by this summer exceed 50 percent.An avian ecologist with Petaluma-based Point Blue said that “off the charts” numbers of pelicans in the area last month might also point to abnormal ocean conditions and a coming El Niño event.
  • In the latest blow from a days-long chain of severe weather across the South and Midwest, the Florida Panhandle and Alabama Gulf Coast were hit with widespread flooding early Wednesday, with Interstate 10 closed for several hours at the Alabama-Florida state line, people stranded in cars and homes waiting for rescuers to find a way around impassable roads, and others abandoning vehicles to walk to safety. I-10 reopened shortly after 8 a.m. Baldwin County, Ala., Emergency Management Agency Director Mitchell Sims told AL.com early Wednesday that "we have historical flooding" throughout the county and the calls for help have been "non-stop" all night.
  • Emergency workers are searching through rubble left in the wake of a series of deadly tornadoes and severe weather, the worst of which hit suburban Little Rock, Ark., Sunday night. One tornado touched down around 7 p.m. west of Little Rock and grew to be half a mile wide, authorities said. It was among a rash of tornadoes and heavy storms that rumbled across the center and south of the country overnight. The National Weather Service forecast that destructive storms could again strike Monday in the South and Mississippi Valley.
  • Last month, consumer prices were bumped up by the second consecutive 0.4 percent rise in food prices. A drought in the western United States has pushed up prices for meat, dairy, fruit and vegetables.
  • Recently, the Norman Office announced on twitter that it had been a record amount of time since a confirmed tornado had touched down in its CWA and also a record amount of time since the office had issued a TORNADO WARNING. Both streaks of time without activity came to an end on Sunday and in the style of the recent past the announcement of the end of that time period came on Twitter. On Sunday a brief tornado was caught on camera from a KWTV chopper that was flying over Stephens County.
  • Topsoil blew into a dark cloud that swept across the flat landscape of southeast Colorado once again Monday afternoon. Footsteps leave dust in loose pockets and grit in the teeth of those who speak. The land pays a bigger price. After nearly four years of deep drought, wind-churned dust has become a slow-moving natural disaster. Comparisons to the Dust Bowl are no longer hyperbole — they're accurate.
  • Rescuers scoured a Mississippi neighborhood on Monday for a 9-year-old who appeared to be swept away by flood waters the night before, while floods in Alabama stranded people in cars and homes in a turbulent morning across the American South.
  • With the weather predicted to warm up this week, plant experts say they may finally be in for a treat: a simultaneous burst of color, as flowering species that normally bloom in succession instead paint the landscape pink, yellow and white all at once.
  • The National Weather Service in New Orleans has issued a flash flood warning for Orleans Parish and St. Bernard Parish in southeast Louisiana until noon CDT. This includes the city of New Orleans. At 10:26 a.m. CDT...National Weather Service meteorologists detected very heavy rain from thunderstorms over Orleans and northern St. Bernard parishes. Locations in the warning include but are not limited to Lakefront Airport and the city of New Orleans.
  • The feel of winter is going to carry over into the first week of spring if you live east of the Rockies. Not only are temperatures going to plunge below average, but we also expect a powerful storm to develop just off the East Coast, bringing the potential for a nasty winter storm for parts of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.
  • Severe drought persists across many states and, looking ahead, the arid conditions will likely remain or grow even worse.That's the bleak assessment from NOAA's Climate Prediction Center, which has released its outlook for this spring. This CPC map shows in brown where forecasters see drought either persisting or intensifying. Areas drawn in tan represent a slight improvement in drought, whereas olive green means great improvement and yellow is where new droughts could develop.
  • The massive mudslide that wiped out part of a town in rural northwestern Washington Saturday struck so quickly that residents couldn't escape its path, scientists said, leading to the deaths of at least 25 people, with scores still unaccounted for. And, they said, the slide's large size—which covered nearly a square mile (2.6 square kilometers) with mud and debris—is likely to hamper efforts to clean up the area and rebuild.
  • High winds are to blame for a shockingly large amount of tumbleweeds that have blown into a neighborhood south of Colorado Springs. The tumbleweeds piled up in front of homes in a new development in the town of Fountain, and the piles that covered the road and cars were are as high as 10 feet in some places.
  • Impressively, it’s the third biggest snowstorm on record to occur so late in the season in Washington weather records, which date back to 1888.The only more prolific snow-producers this deep into March occurred March 28-29, 1942 (11.5 inches), and March 27-28, 1891 (12 inches).
  • Seismologists say Monday's magnitude 4.4 temblor near Westwood could mark the beginning of the end for L.A.'s years-long "earthquake drought."Typically, they would expect a 4.4-sized earthquake about once a year in the Los Angeles Basin, but that hasn't happened for years. “We don’t know if this is the end of the earthquake drought we’ve had over the last few years, and we won’t know for many months,” said Caltech seismologist Egill Hauksson.
  • You’ll get summer, spring and winter this week, wrapped up in a few days’ worth of weather. And you can thank a winter weather pattern that has been anything but consistent.
  • Chicagoans shed their hats and gloves as they came outside to enjoy spring-like weather -- but it won't last long. On Monday, the temperatures hit 56-degrees. By Tuesday, a double digit drop to 42-degrees and snow. This has been one of the area's harshest winters on the books. The thaw and freeze cycle has led to thousands of potholes. The continuing cold could also delay area farmers from planting their crops. Planting time is a month away, but the cold is already impacting operations at Dave Kesto's farm. "I've got a ton of seeds in the shed I need to haul out. In a normal year, I would have been moving that seed already," Kesto said. Kesto said they need warmer, drier weather to get the seeds in the ground. It could be months before farmers can tell how the weather impacted their crops.
  • A new report from NOAA's Climate Prediction Center suggests changes could be on the way for weather patterns across the U.S. and the globe. According to the report, the chance of an El Niño reemerging this year has increased. And, if the models from the report play out, that could mean fewer named storms in the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season and potential drought relief for parts of California later this year. An El Niño cycle can occur every two to seven years, when weaker trade winds allow warmer water around the equator in the far eastern Pacific Ocean to emerge. That warmer water changes wind patterns and alters storm cycles around the globe.
  • A late-season winter storm spread freezing rain, sleet and snow across the state Sunday night and early Monday, making travel conditions hazardous and leaving thousands of Arkansas without power. Temperatures stayed below freezing in most of the state Monday, but a thaw was expected Tuesday in all but the northeastern corner of the state, the National Weather Service said.Temperatures are expected to rise gradually through the week, according to the weather service. The Arkansas State Police responded to numerous crashes and stranded motorists Sunday and Monday. Bruce Kanki, 35, of Springdale was killed Sunday night when a vehicle he was riding in as a passenger went out of control on a snowy curve and struck a guardrail and a retaining wall on Interstate 540 in Benton County, according to a state police report.
  • Expect bulky, multi-layered Carnival costumes accompanied by rain gear to be de rigueur on Mardi Gras 2014, thanks to a cold and wet forecast for New Orleans, Baton Rouge and the north shore. The chilliest temperatures will be in Baton Rouge and areas north of St. Tammany Parish, where the National Weather Service has posted a freeze warning from 2 a.m. to 8 a.m. Tuesday, with temperatures of 29 to 32 degrees expected to last 2 to 6 hours. There's a chance that Tuesday's high could tie or break the existing record for lowest high temperature for Mar. 4, which was 47, set in 2002.
  • Authorities ordered the evacuation of several communities near L.A. as torrential rains caused mudslides throughout the area. About 32,000 households were hit with power outages and slicked roads caused numerous traffic accidents
  • "Any rain is important, obviously, so we'll take whatever we can get," says Jason Clapp, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sacramento. He says these storms won't end the state's ongoing drought, but they will bring significant precipitation. "We're still looking for a couple feet of snow at the highest elevations -- through the whole series -- the two storms," says Clapp. "We're still expecting a couple of inches of rain over the mountains and anywhere from half to an inch and a half in the valley, depending on where you're at." Clapp says thunderstorms are possible, especially tomorrow, along with high winds and blowing snow in the Sierra.He says more wet weather may be on the way next week, as well.
  • City dwellers battling one of the most brutal winters on record have been dealing with something far more dangerous than snow falling from the sky: ice tumbling from skyscrapers. Streets around New York's new 1 World Trade Center, the nation's tallest building, were recently closed when sheets of ice were seen shearing from the face of the 1,776-foot structure — turning them into potentially deadly, 100-mph projectiles.
  • One effect of the persistently cold winter of 2013-2014 is showing up on the world's largest group of freshwater lakes. According to an analysis by NOAA's Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory, ice covered 78.7 percent of the Great Lakes on February 6. Not since early 1996 has ice been so widespread on the Great Lakes.This is an abrupt turn around from the past four winters, during which the peak ice coverage remained around 40 percent or less. As you can see in the graph below, the 40-year average is just over 51 percent.
  • President Obama is traveling to the Fresno area, Friday, where he’ll take part in a roundtable with those affected by the drought. During his visit, the White House says, Mr. Obama will lay out a laundry list of efforts his administration is taking to help those affected, including:
  • A major winter storm that has caused at least six deaths unfurled across much of the U.S. South on Tuesday, and forecasters warned that ice could cripple road travel and bring widespread power outages in coming days.The storm's combination of rain, sleet, heavy snow and thick ice across the South is of "historical proportions," said the National Weather Service office in Peachtree City, Georgia.
  • Old Man Winter is doing more than driving up heating bills and icing roads in the erstwhile sunny South.He may put a chill on your party plans this spring and summer, by icing over breeding ponds and depressing the appetite of one of the region’s taste delights, the crawfish.
  • The punishing drought that has swept California is now threatening the state’s drinking water supply. With no sign of rain, 17 rural communities providing water to 40,000 people are in danger of running out within 60 to 120 days. State officials said that the number was likely to rise in the months ahead after the State Water Project, the main municipal water distribution system, announced on Friday that it did not have enough water to supplement the dwindling supplies of local agencies that provide water to an additional 25 million people. It is first time the project has turned off its spigot in its 54-year history.
  • A mere few inches of snow had shut down Atlanta, forcing children to spend the night at schools, stranding drivers on interstates and making the city a laughingstock to the country.Why did this happen? Who's to blame?And, more importantly, could this happen elsewhere?Perhaps.
  • The blasts of Arctic air have been relentless so far this month for many cities east of the Rockies. Unfortunately, for many areas January will end before any significant relief can arrive.A new surge of frigid air has now poured southward from Canada behind an Alberta clipper that brought snow and wind to the Upper Midwest this past weekend. Temperatures in some cities may rival what we saw in early January.
  • For Louisiana's large and growing population of hard-core, fanatical duck hunters, this should have been the season they'd talk about. The perfect storm of perfect conditions: daily showers throughout the summer of 2013 freshened coastal marshes, and as a result, the duck ponds grew more grass than the Colorado hydroponics industry. Some ponds were so rich with submerged aquatic vegetation, they looked like they could be mowed. So why no ducks?
  • Southeast Louisiana saw snow touch down for the first time since 2008, when some light flurries started to fall on Thursday (Jan. 23) evening.State police say icy road conditions were a factor in two south Louisiana highway traffic deaths. Icing led authorities to close numerous roads around the state, including the Causeway over Lake Pontchartrain and the elevated portion of Interstate 49 through Alexandria.
  • Numerical weather models tend to become very unreliable beyond 5 or 6 days but meteorologists have discovered a trick that helps in long-range forecasting. At least a bit. We still cannot pin down what day a storm will hit at a particular place but we can get a good idea of whether or not the pattern will be warm/cold/dry or stormy.
  • After one of the quietest U.S. tornado seasons in 40 years, Sunday was nature's comeback, with a total of 81 tornado reports in Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, Indiana and Ohio. Illinois was the hardest hit, with 43 tornadoes, followed by 23 in Indiana, 13 in Kentucky, one in Missouri and one in Ohio.
  • Recently on the Almanac, Peter Cullen noticed he hasn't seen many bears in the mountains of New Mexico this year. Bears are foragers, and Cullen says the lack of piñon, oak and juniper trees caused them to head down to mountain towns looking for thrown-away leftovers.That got us thinking about our bear populations here in western Colorado....
  • Dallas and June Harding are regulars on the Almanac, but most of their daily weather observations you'll see there date back to the late 1980s. That's because those entries were transcribed from the journals June started keeping in 1985, when she and Dallas moved to their current home at the Harding Ranch near the base of Coal Mountain.
  • As Metro New Orleans prepares for Tropical Storm Karen, meteorologists and climatologists have been wondering why the 2013 Hurricane Season has had so many tropical storms, but so few hurricanes. It could be a landmark year for understanding hurricane formation, but the government shut down means there's fewer eyes able to keep close tabs on the climate data.
  • After historic rains and flooding devastated the Front Range, western Colorado recently got its own brief taste of storms. Along with those rains came the exciting sight of the season’s first snow on the mountains. Are we in for a wet winter?
  • I noticed the clouds hanging over the mountain passes on I-70, driving back from Denver Monday morning.Four days later, those clouds let loose historic amounts of rainfall over the Front Range, devastating the area with the worst flooding the state’s ever seen. Records were broken, and the storm rekindled rough memories of the 1976 Big Thompson Flood.
  • Four days of rainfall across Colorado’s Front Range produced massive flooding that’s marooned thousands of people, inundated many key roads, and damaged countless homes and businesses. Just how rare was this event? Was it a 100-year flood, or something bigger (or smaller)?
  • A storm that dumped more than seven inches of rain over the north and central Colorado Thursday, killing at least three people.
  • In late July, a massive dust storm in the Saharan Desert of Africa moved across the Atlantic, making for an interesting start to the hurricane season, or you could say a boring one.All that dust in the air essentially acted like a shield, fending off the sun and keeping the ocean cooler, which in turn has kept tropical storms from growing into hurricanes. Though that’s probably good news to people along the Gulf Coast, dust storms at their origins can be severely destructive. Southeastern Coloradans have been learning that lesson the hard way recently...

  • It's a critical time for crops across the country. KVNF's Travis Bubenik looks into questions from iSeeChangers Mathew Harris in Paonia wondering about too little rain in the North Fork Valley and Angela Davis in Florida wondering about too much rain!
  • On the Almanac last week, P Kaech reported seeing snow on the top of Mt. Baldy near Crested Butte, and Andrea Lecos noticed that monsoon rains have brought up mosquitoes and other insects. Humans may hate the bugs, but birds are feasting on them. KVNF's Marty Durlin spoke with Jason Beason of the Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory about breeding season along the North Fork of the Gunnison River.
  • The Monsoon season has arrived in Colorado, the annual time when hot, high pressure in the atmosphere moves east across the Continental Divide and cool, moist air comes trailing in behind it. It's a reliable weather pattern, but exactly how reliable? KVNF's Travis Bubenik reports.
  • For this week’s iSeeChange Cast, KVNF's Travis Bubenik looks into the multiple ways that ditch lining projects may be changing the local ecology.
  • Unfortunately, this year it didn’t matter how frost-hearty the cherries and apricots were—nothing could save them from the brutal cold snap that hit on April 8, right when the buds were at their most vulnerable stage. Not a single farmer that we spoke with from the valley to the mesa was able to save their cherry crop this year, no matter how many old-timer or new-fangled techniques they tried.
  • Last week, Don Wally and Pkaech reported seeing the summer's first sunflowers. They wondered if the flowers were blooming faster and earlier than usual. Turns out University of Maryland Biology Professor David Inouye is seeing the same thing. For iSeeChange and KVNF, Travis Bubenik reports.
  • West Fork Fire Complex Grows to 83,000 Acres; Rain Predicted for Weekend Forest Ecologist Claims Beetles Aren’t to Blame for West Fork Fire KVNF Speaks to Cyclists in Paonia for 19th Annual Colorado Bike Tour
  • The consensus on iSeeChange last week was…it’s hot! Too hot for this time of year. Too hot and too dry. If climate change experts are right, this will only get worse. KVNF’s Marty Durlin spoke to Dave Kanzer, senior water resources engineer for the Colorado River Conservation District, about the effects of a hotter, dryer world.
  • The deadly Black Canyon wildfire, which started Tuesday, continues to ravage Colorado Springs. It has destroyed 473 homes and damaged 17 – making it the most destructive fire in Colorado's history. The blaze has killed two people and burned 15,500 acres. More than 34,000 homes have been evacuated.

  • Paonia resident Amber Kleinman has been reading through the daily journals of William Beezley, an orchardist and farmer who documented change in the North Fork Valley during the Dust Bowl era and through the first half of the 20th century. Recording selected entries for thealmanac.org and comparing them to current weather and conditions, Kleinman – a small-acreage farmer who keeps a journal herself -- has gained a new perspective.
  • KVNF's Marty Durlin reports on ranchers turning to less conventional feed sources to keep their cattle fed through the drought.
  • Unfortunately, this year it didn’t matter how frost-hearty the cherries and apricots were—nothing could save them from the brutal cold snap that hit on April 8, right when the buds were at their most vulnerable stage. Not a single farmer that we spoke with from the valley to the mesa was able to save their cherry crop this year, no matter how many old-timer or new-fangled techniques they tried.

  • Cyclone Pam has left thousands of people homeless on Vanuatu, with aid agencies comparing the strength of the winds to those of Typhoon Haiyan which devastated parts of the Philippines in November 2013.Vanuatu President Baldwin Lonsdale said the storm had destroyed most buildings in the capital Port Vila, including schools and clinics.A state of emergency has been declared in the tiny state of 267,000 people, spread over 65 islands.
  • Huge waves pounded Japanese coastal towns as 'super-typhoon' Vongfong battered the southern island of Okinawa on Sunday. More than 200,000 residents were forced to flee their homes on the island, some 1,000 miles south of Tokyo, before it was hit by what was Japan's most powerful storm this year. The typhoon, which also caused massive waves on the eastern coast of China, left 31 people injured, flooded streets and cut power to more than 60,000 homes.
  • In the U.S., the few who have taken notice of this wider water scarcity include a former director of the U.S. Geological Survey. Now editor-in-chief of the journal Science, Marcia McNutt last month penned an editorial highlighting what she called “a drought of crisis proportions” across the Americas.Worst hit has been Central America, where drought has created food shortages for 2.5 million people, most of them “subsistence farmers and families in highly food-insecure areas,” says Miguel Barreto, regional program manager for the U.N.’s World Food Program.
  • Officials tracking volcanic lava creeping through a forest toward homes on Hawaii’s Big Island have issued a voluntary evacuation notice for residents with existing health conditions who might find themselves abruptly cut off from medical care.Residents in the affected Puna district were warned on Tuesday that “medical services and supplies will be severely limited and emergency medical response time may be significantly delayed” if the lava flow crosses the area’s main roadway. Civil defense officials and the Federal Aviation Administration on Monday imposed flight restrictions over the lava stream, which began oozing from Kilauea Volcano on 27 June, due to congested air traffic from sightseers and the media.
  • An American airman was killed and two others were missing after they were swept out to sea by a powerful typhoon that struck Okinawa, Japan, on Sunday, the United States Air Force said. In a statement, the Air Force said Japanese and American rescue helicopters had found the body of one of the three Americans after they were carried away by waves from the northeastern coast of the Japanese island, which hosts several American military bases. The search for the other two was being hampered by high winds and waves, the statement said.

  • Scientists have photographed the largest gathering of Pacific walruses ever recorded, on a beach in northern Alaska, blaming climate change for the estimated 35,000 females and calves huddled beside the Chukchi Sea (map).Federal biologists with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) photographed the gathering, known as a haul-out, north of the village of Point Lay over the weekend.It's hardly the first big walrus gathering to be documented, a fact noted by climate change skeptics. But scientists say the size of the gatherings are growing as climate change melts Arctic sea ice, depriving walruses of their sunning platforms of choice
  • Just days after NASA data showed that August 2014 was the warmest August on record, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration confirmed the ranking and raised the ante: There’s a good chance 2014 could become the warmest year on record.“If we continue a consistent departure from average for the rest of 2014, we will edge out 2010 as the warmest year on record,” said Jake Crouch, a climatologist with NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center, during a press briefing Thursday. Specifically, if each of the remaining months of the year ranks among the top five warmest, 2014 will take the top spot, he said.
  • Heavy rains and flash floods have snarled road and rail traffic in Sweden and Denmark, with divers called to rescue people in submerged vehicles.Overnight rains which spread into Sunday forced the evacuation of residents from waterlogged homes in some areas.Buses in the Swedish city of Malmo came to halt after vehicles broke down on flooded roads. Divers and rescue workers helped passengers trapped in submerged cars and buses, in one case breaking the window of a bus and dragging people out on an extended ladder.
  • A trio of mysterious gaping holes in northern Siberia has spawned many theories about the craters' origin, but scientists have suggested some concrete explanations. In mid-July, reindeer herders stumbled across a crater that was approximately 260 feet (80 meters) wide, on the Yamal Peninsula, whose name means "end of the world," The Siberian Times reported. Since then, two new chasms — a 50-foot (15 m) crater in the Taz district and a 200- to 330-foot (60 to 100 m) crater in the Taymyr Peninsula — have also been reported.
  • British seas are currently warmer than California’s, according to a study by British oceanographers.Recordings taken by Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) have found that the temperature of Britain’s seas is at an all-time high, and places like Start Bay in Devon and Perranporth in Cornwall, are currently experiencing warmer waters than Californian holiday hotspot Santa Monica.
  • China's Ministry of Civil Affairs says a storm has killed 13 people in the country and thousands are in need of basic living supplies.Typhoon Matmo dumped heavy rain on Taiwan before arriving on the Chinese mainland on Wednesday and being downgraded to a tropical storm. It brought strong winds and heavy downpours to several provinces.The ministry said Sunday that nine deaths had been reported in eastern Jiangxi province and four in southern Guangdong province. It said nearly 290,000 residents had been relocated and some 37,000 were in urgent need of basic living supplies. The bad weather associated with Typhoon Matmo in Taiwan is considered a likely factor in the crash Wednesday of a plane on a small Taiwanese island that killed 48 people.
  • After wreaking damage on the Philippines over Tuesday and Wednesday, a newly intensified Typhoon Rammasun is bearing down on Hainan and Guangdong provinces in southern China. The storm, which was downgraded as it passed over the Philippines, gained strength again over the South China Sea and is now battering Hainan, with its inner eye wall hugging the island's coast. Now categorized by the China Meteorological Administration as a super typhoon, Rammasun made landfall on the island province of Hainan at around 1.30 p.m (1.30 a.m Eastern) Friday after veering westwards.Super typhoons are categorized as having sustained winds of 150 mph (241 km/h) or higher.
  • Typhoon Neoguri swept along Japan's eastern coast Thursday, heading toward Tokyo after making landfall on the nation's southernmost main island of Kyushu.While the typhoon has weakened to a tropical storm, it still brought torrential rains over a wide area of Japan, triggering fatal landslides and floods. As of Thursday evening, Neoguri—which means raccoon in Korean—was moving northeast up the coast of Japan's main island of Honshu at 27 miles an hour, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency.It could pass through the Tokyo area early Friday morning before tracking away from the eastern coast.
  • Under relentless heat, India is reaching the breaking point. As the country tries to keep cool, the power grid is failing. Rioting protesters in the north of the country set fire to electricity substations last weekend and held power workers hostage, accusing the government of distributing scarce power resources based on political preferenc
  • The National Hurricane Center says there's a 90 percent chance that showers and thunderstorms associated with a low pressure area about 250 miles south-southeast of Salina Cruz, Mexico, could become the second tropical depression of the 2014 Eastern Pacific hurricane season within 48 hours.
  • EU and NATO officials are visiting Bosnia on Wednesday to discuss with local officials what steps need to be taken in the region to recover from the Balkans' worst flooding in a century. At least 2 million people in the region have been affected by the deluge, which has left more than 45 people dead. And as parts of the region brace for more floods, residents grapple with fears of more landslides and the potential spread of disease.Wednesday was the first of three days of national mourning in Serbia, where at least 22 people have died in the past several days. In the hard-hit town of Obrenovac 14 people died, though the number could increase once the streets are eventually cleared of water.
  • Every ten days, the NASA/French Space Agency Jason-2 satellite maps all the world’s oceans, monitoring changes in sea surface height, a measure of heat in the upper layers of the water. Because our planet is more than 70% ocean, this information is crucial to global forecasts of weather and climate.Lately, Jason-2 has seen something brewing in the Pacific—and it looks a lot like 1997.“A pattern of sea surface heights and temperatures has formed that reminds me of the way the Pacific looked in the spring of 1997,” says Bill Patzert, a climatologist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. “That turned out to be the precursor of a big El Niño.”
  • Years from now, when scientists look for a precise moment when the Earth’s climate began to inexorably change, they may mark this week. Two separate studies Monday appeared to confirm a fear scientists have harbored for decades: major glaciers in the West Antarctic Ice Sheet are irrevocably destabilized, and their slide into the ocean will swell the world’s oceans by four feet.
  • A major earthquake of magnitude 8.2 hit Chile Tuesday night, killing at least five people and setting off a small tsunami that forced the evacuation of coastal areas and warnings for much of Latin America's Pacific Coast. By late Tuesday, tsunami warnings and watches remained for the coasts of Peru and Chile, while U.S. officials reported no threat along the coasts of Alaska, California, Oregon or Washington. The danger to Hawaii was still under evaluation, but the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said it didn't expect a major tsunami threat to the islands. The center issued an advisory saying swimmers, boaters and others at beaches might see strong currents and sea level changes.
  • Temperatures reached 70F (21C) in places, making parts of Britain warmer than Madrid and Athens. Forecasters predict a dip in temperatures today but say the sunshine will return by mid-week, with most of England staying warm and dry as spring takes hold
  • Soupy fog settled over the outdoor Olympic venues on Monday, making it impossible for athletes to see shooting targets in biathlon or navigate the high-banking turns of the course in snowboard cross.Both events were called off for the day. For the athletes, who have already spent a week dealing with unusually mild weather that has turned snow to slush here, the sentiment was clear: Enough is enough with the weather.

  • Several coastal towns in south-west England have been hit by fresh flooding, disrupting business and severing road and rail links.Cornwall Council said there had been "a severe amount of coastal damage" and the Environment Agency warned of extreme danger on the Cornish coast. On the Somerset Levels, thousands of hectares of land remain under water. Meanwhile, a cheaper helpline for flooding victims in England has been opened for calls.
  • The deluge that has engulfed southern and central England in recent weeks is the worst winter downpour in almost 250 years, according to figures from the world's longest-running weather station. The rainfall measured at the historic Radcliffe Meteorological Station at Oxford University in January was greater than for any winter month since daily recording began there in 1767, and three times the average amount. The latest Met Office data shows that the region from Devon to Kent and up into the Midlands suffered its wettest January since its records began in 1910.
  • Not only is the Boston area seeing the largest number of snowy owls ever recorded, they are popping up in territory far from their usual habitat near the Arctic Circle. Ecstatic bird watchers have spotted them perched atop the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and in Washington (where one made headlines for being struck by a bus), in Little Rock, Ark., and northern Florida — even in Bermuda.“This year’s been bizarre,” said Dan Haas, a birder in Maryland. “The numbers have been unprecedented. Historic.”
  • This is Bizarro world, not the winter sports world. Dog paddling instead of dog mushing? Water skiing instead of nordic skiing?It's nearly come to that.With daytime temperatures in the 40s and nighttime temps seldom dipping below freezing, with rain pouring down and puddles forming, Southcentral Alaska's winter playground has turned into a soupy mess.
  • More than a week after one of the most powerful typhoons ever recorded tore through the Philippines, the government and international and national humanitarian agencies face an enormous and difficult task getting aid to those who need it most, leaving little time to begin assessing the damage.
  • A week after Typhoon Haiyan made landfall in the Philippines, the country's crisis is far from over, with perhaps thousands of dead still be counted, tens or hundreds of thousands of people displaced and basic services, including access to food, shut down in many areas. To help convey how and why the storm was so bad, here is a series of eight maps on Haiyan, its impact and the Philippines' crisis.
  • So what exactly is the Almanac predicting for this winter? New England, New York and most of Pennsylvania will experience a bitterly cold and snow-filled season. The mid-Atlantic states will be cold, wet and blanketed in white. The Southeast will be chilly and wet all winter. Texas and other Southern states will experience frost and above-average dampness. Illinois and the surrounding states will have "biting cold" and snow. The Midwest will see "piercing cold" with normal snowfall. The Pacific Northwest will see a dry and chilly year. The one good region in the predictions is California, Nevada and Arizona, which will see a season of cool with near-normal precipitation.
  • The strongest tropical cyclone of the year has slammed into the central Philippines after President Benigno Aquino ordered mass evacuations to reduce the risk of disaster. Super Typhoon Haiyan, known as Yolanda in the Philippines, made landfall in Samar province early Friday, with sustained winds of 315 kilometers per hour and gusts of 379 kilometers per hour.
  • Average annual temperatures will start to consistently exceed the highest levels previously recorded in as little as seven years in tropical hotspots and within four decades for the majority of the globe if nothing is done to stop climate change, according to a new study published Thursday in the journal Nature.
  • A study of a dozen of 2012's wildest weather events found that man-made global warming increased the likelihood of about half of them, including Superstorm Sandy's devastating surge and the blistering U.S. summer heat.
  • Coastal waters off California are getting more acidic. Fall-run chinook salmon populations to the Sacramento River are on the decline. Conifer forests on the lower slopes of the Sierra Nevada have moved to higher elevations over the past half century. That's just a snapshot of how climate change is affecting California's natural resources, a report released Thursday found.
  • Tropical Storm Gabrielle brought heavy rains to Puerto Rico and neighboring islands Thursday, according to the National Hurricane Center. Although it was expected to strengthen slowly through the weekend, experts said it had little chance of growing into the season's first hurricane.
  • In 1996 Colorado received a very unwelcome—and hungry—house guest, the mountain pine beetle, whose voracious appetite for pine has since killed off millions of acres of trees there. A few years later, the beetles came knocking in British Columbia and have now knocked out over half the province's pine timber. The full-bore invasion of these critters, each no bigger than a grain of rice, is now one of the most pressing ecological disasters in the West, and their spread, scientists believe, is driven by climate change. The beetles aren't alone.....
  • Pacific islanders will challenge world leaders this week to act on climate change, warning that their low-lying atolls are close to becoming uninhabitable because of rising seas and increasingly severe floods, droughts and storm surges.
  • August is about to end without an Atlantic hurricane for the first time since 2002, calling into question predictions of a more active storm season than normal. Air temperatures from the Caribbean to Africa have been warmer than normal this year, reducing the instability in the atmosphere that drives storm development, he said. In addition, dry air is being pulled off Africa into the Atlantic, which also cuts storm activity, he said
  • Birds are considered some of the most reliable bio-indicators of phenomena such as climate change for that reason. Naturalists across Ohio, particularly those with an interest in birding, have observed and documented a variety of species new to the state, while other species appear to have flown away.
  • Global sea level has been rising as a result of global warming, but in 2010 and 2011, sea level actually fell by about a quarter of an inch. Scientists now say they know why: It has to do with extreme weather in Australia.The sea level drop coincided with some of the worst flooding in that continent's history.
  • Finally, some good news about the effects of climate change. It may have triggered a growth spurt in two of California's iconic tree species: coast redwoods and giant sequoias. Since the 1970s, some coast redwoods have grown at the fastest rate ever, according to scientists who studied corings from trees more than 1,000 years old.
  • Marine species, more than land-based species, are altering their breeding, feeding and migration patterns, say scientists. Rising ocean temperatures are rearranging the biological make-up of our oceans, pushing species towards the poles by 7kms every year, as they chase the climates they can survive in, according to new research.The study, conducted by a working group of scientists from 17 different institutions, gathered data from seven different countries and found the warming oceans are causing marine species to alter their breeding, feeding and migration patterns.
  • Peaches, the gem of the Southern summer, are just not so sweet this year. The tomatoes in Tennessee are splitting. Tobacco in North Carolina is drowning. And watermelons, which seem as if they would like all the rain that has soaked the South, have taken perhaps the biggest hit of all.
  • There's no such thing as "normal" weather in California wine country, and vineyard operators say this year that truism could mean good news for wine lovers. After cool temperatures slowed ripening and kept grapes on the vine until fall in recent years, growers in the nation's premier wine region are facing a heat wave that has made for one of the earliest harvests in recent memory.
  • A Sunday afternoon deluge turned roads into rivers in South Jersey, submerging cars and stranding drivers, and set a record for one-day rainfall in Philadelphia. During a six-hour period from 2 to 8 p.m., 7.38 inches of rain fell at the Philadelphia International Airport, setting the city's daily record since record tallying began in 1872.

  • Rain further doused the dwindling Mountain Fire near Palm Springs on Monday, helping firefighters to gain 85 percent containment, officials said. And, in stark contrast to last week, firefighters' warnings didn't involve smoke and flames, but flash flooding and mudslides in burn areas.
  • A recent rash of rain has left many farmers underwater, literally. You'd think that the moisture would help things grow, but in this case it's just sinking their crops and their profits."This is the worst kind of weather we've had since I've been farming," said Shilo Farms' Larry Redmond. "Most folks say this is the worst they've ever seen"

  • The men were mostly born and bred in this city on the mountains, surrounded by thick forest of piñon pine and chaparral brush, parched by years of drought. They were young men, mostly, 14 of them in their 20s — outdoorsmen, fathers, heroes to the local high school athletes they themselves once were.
  • A heat wave smothering the West was rewriting record books, likely tying a more than century-old U.S. record in California as Las Vegas and other cities came out of their hottest June ever into a July that brought little relief. California's Death Valley National Park tentatively recorded a high temperature of 129 degrees, which would tie the all-time June record high for the United States, the National Weather Service said Monday.
  • An unforgiving heat wave held much of the West in a sweltering embrace over the weekend, tying or breaking temperature records in several cities, grounding flights, sparking forest fires and contributing to deaths.
  • One of the worst droughts in this nation’s history, a dry spell that persisted through the early part of this year, has ended with torrential rains this spring that have overwhelmed vast stretches of the country, including much of the farm belt. One result has been flooded acres that have drowned corn and soybean plants, stunted their growth or prevented them from being planted at all.
  • As flooding continues across Central Europe, tens of thousands of people have been forced to evacuate their homes. After two levees broke in southeastern Germany, people had to be rescued from their rooftops by helicopters. Flooding caused by sustained heavy rains has been reported in Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, and Germany with the overall death toll rising to at least 16.
  • The Port of St. Louis and eight locks on the major shipping artery from northern Iowa to St. Louis have been closed by the U.S. Coast Guard and Army Corps of Engineers following record rains around the U.S. Midwest. It was the third major hindrance to river shipping this year after record flooding on the Illinois River in April and the threat of a low-water closure of the Mississippi in January, events that further solidified communication between the industry and government officials that manage the river system.
  • It's more than 3,600 miles from Tucson to the Arctic Circle, but researchers are starting to link some of Tucson's and the country's extreme cold and warm spells over the past few winters to the loss of Arctic sea ice that was caused by a warming climate.
  • Last year's drought scorched over half of country last year. Now that drought is shifting towards the Southwest and western Plains.
  • The enormous tornado that struck in Moore, Oklahoma, on Monday has added a chilling entry into the list of the deadliest tornadoes on record.

  • n instrument near the summit of Mauna Loa in Hawaii has recorded a long-awaited climate milestone: the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere there has exceeded 400 parts per million (ppm) for the first time in 55 years of measurement—and probably more than 3 million years of Earth history.
  • The extreme 2012 Central Great Plains drought was more intense than the Dust Bowl era droughts of the 1930s, according to a new federal assessment of the origins and predictability of the drought, released on Thursday. The team of 19 atmospheric scientists, led by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), found that global warming may have played a relatively small contributing role by helping to make the drought slightly warmer, and hence drier, than it otherwise might have been.
  • After months of watching the skies and holding their breath, Nebraskans finally saw some meaningful drought relief, in the form of a mixed bag of precipitation, from thunderstorms to sleet, damaging hail, and heavy snow. The spring blizzard brought long-overdue drought relief to one of the hardest hit states by the historic national drought, which in many respects was more severe than the Dust Bowl era droughts of the 1930s, according to a federal report released on Thursday.

  • U.S. Ohio River Crests at Highest Level Since '97, Hazards Remain
    Mar 15, 2015
    The National Weather Service said the river crested at around 6 a.m. at 57.7 feet, or seven feet below the 1997 level that caused severe, widespread flooding in the Cincinnati area and in Kentucky.

    The blizzard warning continues for the summits of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, as snow is piling up high.The National Weather Service says the warning is in effect for Hawaii Island’s higher elevations – anything above 11,000 feet – until 6 p.m. Thursday. Forecasters expect an additional 2 to 4 inches of snow to fall. Temperatures are in the mid-20s, but its the wind that is extreme, gusting up to 85 miles per hour. Those who work on the summit – including snow removal crews – had to abandon their posts.

  • Finally some snow for Iditarod mushers
    Mar 8, 2015
    More than four inches of new snowfall greeted Stan Hooley, the chief executive officer of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, when he arrived in Fairbanks on Sunday, a day before the competitive race begins."Seems a little bit more like the Iditarod when you actually have some snow around," said Hooley.Warm temperatures have played havoc with the Iditarod all winter long as the same stalled jet stream that buried the eastern seaboard in snow has left Alaska unseasonable warm and dry. Officials last month decided conditions in the Alaska Range were so poor because of a lack of snow that the competitive start would be moved over the mountain range to Fairbanks. That wasn't the only change officials were considering, and the ceremonial start in Anchorage could have been moved to Fairbanks, as well, also because of the weather.

    The long drought in California is, of course, bad news for most in the agriculture business — but winemakers are seeing some real benefits. The lack of rain is actually leading to some of the best wine Napa and Sonoma counties have seen in a while:ess water means smaller grapes, and that concentrates the flavor, notes a vineyard president. Then there's the fact that a lot of rain can mean moldy grapes. On top of that, the sun is making grapes riper earlier, and that allows a harvest before the threat of autumn storms.

It’s been hot and dry since then, so what little snow remained has probably melted off.” If so, that’s about two weeks earlier than an average year, according to Smith. Because this year’s minimal snowpack has melted away sooner than the start of green-up, fuels like grasses and even trees are drying out significantly, increasing the potential for fires.

  • El Nino Possible in 2014?
    Mar 6, 2014
    A new report from NOAA's Climate Prediction Center suggests changes could be on the way for weather patterns across the U.S. and the globe. According to the report, the chance of an El Niño reemerging this year has increased. And, if the models from the report play out, that could mean fewer named storms in the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season and potential drought relief for parts of California later this year. An El Niño cycle can occur every two to seven years, when weaker trade winds allow warmer water around the equator in the far eastern Pacific Ocean to emerge. That warmer water changes wind patterns and alters storm cycles around the globe.
