El Niño officially declared, named as likely contributor to recent storms

A just-declared El Niño climate pattern not only is one likely cause for the unusually large amount of precipitation in recent weeks but may also mean a wetter spring than usual. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration officially announced Thursday that an El Niño had arrived in the equatorial Pacific and could continue through the spring. NOAA has identified above-average sea surface temperatures with the irregular weather pattern, but NOAA forecaster Mike Halpert said this El Niño ...

Couple finds message in a bottle from NOAA scientists sent in early '60s

In 1962, US government scientists at a lab in Galveston, Texas wrote messages in bottles and deployed 7,863 of them into the sea. This week, about 56 years later, a couple combing the beach more than 200 miles away picked one up.

El Niño has arrived. What does that mean for weather in 2019?

El Niño has arrived in 2019. So far, it's pretty weak. That doesn't mean it will stay that way. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced Thursday that this natural climate phenomenon -- which is triggered by warmer temperatures in the equatorial Pacific Ocean and can significantly affect weather in the U.S. -- will likely persist through the spring. But what happens next is still unclear."We don't have a good handle on where this goes the rest of the year,...

A troubling new map shows what your city's climate will look like in 60 years. San Francisco will feel like LA, and New York will be more like Arkansas.

A new study shows what the climates of various US cities might look like in 60 years. New York City will have a climate like the one Arkansas has today. The Bay Area will feel more like Los Angeles. The research is accompanied by an interactive map that lets users see which place currently has a climate that's similar to what their city might experience in the future.  The study's authors found that overall, if carbon-dioxide emissions continue to increase unabated, the climate in North Americ...

Runway Numbers and a Mobile Magnetic North Pole

Releasing a new World Magnetic Model (WMM) was one bit of work that didn’t get done during the partial shutdown of the U.S. Government. It finally saw the light of day on February 4. But that’s not the important part. The important part is that the position of magnetic north has moved so much they had to update the WMM a year early. If you remember your ground school lessons about runway numbers, the headline should make sense, and you know why some runway numbers will be changing. Magnetic nor...

2018 makes last 5 years the warmest in history, scientists say, as Democrats put climate change on agenda

The past five years are the warmest in recorded history, scientists from NASA and NOAA announced Wednesday, part of a continued trend of higher temperatures around the world. "2018 is yet again an extremely warm year on top of a long-term global warming trend," said Goddard Institute for Space Studies Director Gavin Schmidt. The 2018 data shows the last five years are now the warmest since 1880, according to government scientists.Despite continued data showing the impacts of climate change it ...

Earth's north magnetic pole has moved — here's what that means for our navigation systems

Earth's north magnetic pole keeps shifting — each year, it moves north by an average of about 30 miles. Magnetic north shifted so much in the last few years that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued an early update to its World Magnetic Model, which tracks Earth's magnetic field.  The World Magnetic Model informs everything from Google Maps to the US Department of Defense's navigation systems. The Earth's north magnetic pole has led scientists on something of a chase ov...

Weather and climate-related disasters cost the US $80 billion in 2018, but go ahead and say climate change isn’t real

Weather and climate-related disasters cost the U.S. economy $80 billion last year — and have hit the nation’s bottom line to the tune of roughly $100 billion per year over the last five years, according to a new survey from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. That tally comes as NASA reported that 2018 was also the fourth warmest year ever recorded — continuing a trend of record-breaking global temperatures. It looks like the anthropogenic causes of climate change are becoming ...

Earth's Magnetic North Pole Was Moving So Fast, Geophysicists Had to Update the Map

Now that the government shutdown is over, federal agencies have finally released an early edition of the World Magnetic Model, almost a full year before the next one was scheduled to be released, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced today (Feb. 4). Previously, the World Magnetic Model, which tracks Earth's roving magnetic north pole, was updated in 2015 with the intent that the model would last until 2020. But the magnetic north pole had other plans. It began...

As Magnetic North Pole Zooms Toward Siberia, Scientists Update World Magnetic Model

An anonymous reader quotes a report from NPR: Earth's geographic north pole is fixed. But the planet's magnetic north pole -- the north that your compass points toward -- wanders in the direction of Siberia at a rate of more than 34 miles per year. That movement may seem slow, but it has forced scientists to update their model of Earth's magnetic field a year earlier than expected so that navigational services, including map-based phone apps, continue to work accurately. The drift results from p...

After 130 Years, the Flexible Flyer Is Still the Cadillac of Sleds

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the country is just now shaking itself off from the snowiest period of the year. That makes it peak season for sledding--an activity for which NOAA keeps no statistics, though it's a good bet that most kids in snowy regions (and a goodly percent of their parents)...

It's damn cold, but heat records in the U.S. still dominate

Yes, records for cold temperatures are breaking as an off-balance polar vortex sloshes over a vast region of the U.S.  And while it sure feels frigid out there, overall, the number of daily cold records set in the U.S. has been consistently dwarfed by the number of warm or high temperature records. The score isn't even close. High records over the last decade are outpacing low records by a rate of two to one. Earth has warmed by 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit (1 degree Celsius) since the late 1800s...

As Polar Vortex Freezes US, Satellite Track It from Space

It's winter in the United States, and swaths of the country are currently experiencing bitter cold brought on by a phenomenon nicknamed the polar vortex, a pattern weather satellites are watching closely. The National Weather Service is offering a blunt message about the cold weather, calling it "life-threatening." The cold temperatures are caused by Arctic air masses drifting farther south than usual, bringing biting winds that are pushing wind-chill temperatures in regions of a dozen stat...
