  3. Veering (backing) winds and WAA (CAA)

    Is WAA (CAA) always associated with veering (backing) winds or are there circumstances in which this relationship doesn't hold? I assume the tropics, being highly barotropic, wouldn't see such a relationship but the midlatitudes would due to the high baroclinicity. Thanks!

    New False Article Claiming "Worst Storm in History" to Hit West Coast

    This is probably the worst case of click-bait fear mongering I've ever seen. I wish there was some way to publicly shame these internet "journalists" for spreading false information and eroding the public's trust...

    How The Shape Of Your City Determines The Weather

    Humans have changed the planet so permanently and dramatically, scientists had to coin a special geological name—the anthropocene—just to describe it. And you might not realize it, but the weather patterns you live with everyday are a direct product of our busy urban cores. Yes, we’ve even...

    Drones and their Role in Weather

    I've thought about this subject a lot recently, as drones will soon be as common as point-and-shoot cameras, and there's much to be discussed about them. For example: 1) How ethical is it to use drones to obtain tornado footage then sell it and claim it as your own, even if the drone was not on...
