Happy New Year to one and all! It’s the start of a new year and new beginnings. Nature never takes a break as we have seen with recent cold weather outbreaks, snowfall, floods, and even severe weather across portions of North America. This week, we’ll continue our winter weather safety information. There are many interesting science links to check out, so let’s get started.
- The more we study the weather on Mars, the more spectacular we realize this amazing planet is.
- This is a fantastic, novel idea! “The Unlikely Solution to Microplastic Pollution: Magnets?“
- If you ever have to shovel snow, there are several tips that we all should be mindful of in order to do it safely.
- What a flight this must be. “Storm-Chasing Seabirds Ride Out Hurricanes from Inside.”
- Newly released research. “Half of glaciers will be gone by 2100 even under Paris 1.5C accord, study finds.”
- Our warming climate is not only increasing the number of tropical cyclones, but their intensity.
- A swing in Australia from three years of La Niña to hot and dry El Niño in 2023 would be quite a tough climate extreme to endure.
- Here is this week’s update on the USA Drought Monitor. Recent precipitation has brought some improvements even to California which has been pummeled in recent days with several significant storm systems. East of the Mississippi, conditions have improved significantly while the plains still hold fast to extreme or exceptional drought conditions.
WINTER WEATHER PREPAREDNESS AND SAFETY
- If you’re looking for winter weather preparedness and safety information, here’s an excellent website for everything you need to know for before and after the storm. This all inclusive website from NOAA and the National Weather Service will help you prepare for the storm and tell you how to stay safe afterwards. The infographics have tips on dressing for the cold and five things to keep in mind during the coldest months of the year.
