Hello to one and all. I’m glad you stopped by. In addition to several science stories this week, I’ll continue with more severe weather safety infographics for you. This week, the focus is on flash flood safety. We’ll also take a look at the latest US Drought Monitor. Let’s get started.
- This is a clear matter of, “a day late and a dollar short.” “EPA finally wakes up with stiff new climate rules: ‘They’ve hit full throttle.”’
- The time has come for this source of renewable energy to catch on very, very fast in the USA.
- The western region of the USA has experienced severe drought conditions in the past year. In spite of plentiful rain and snow, it’s not enough to bring this area out of drought conditions.
- According to the latest research from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), our planet is on track to breach 1.5C climate threshold by 2027.
- In case you missed it, NOAA has released their latest State Of The Climate report on the USA with a detailed look at April 2023.
- Here is this weeks update on the USA Drought Monitor. Conditions east of the Mississippi river have improved a great deal. Extreme or exceptional drought conditions continue for much of the central and southern plains states. In spite of recent rainfall, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas have the current worst conditions.
SEVERE WEATHER PREPAREDNESS AND SAFETY
- The severe weather season in 2023 has been active with all hazards having done a great deal of damage. This week, we’ll take a look at the leading severe weather related killer, flash flooding. In addition, this is an essential read on severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, and related hazards in an excellent 20 page PDF file from the National Weather Service…”Thunderstorms, Tornadoes, and Lightning. Nature’s Most Violent Storms.”
This important infographic focuses on winter weather and social media. However, it also applies to ANY weather conditions that occur years round regardless of where you live. Remember that your NOAA weather radio, local NWS Office, and the broadcast meteorologists of your choice are always the best choices for all types of weather…from clement to life threatening situations.
That’s a wrap for this post! Thanks to everyone for stopping by. A big ‘Thank You’ to all of you who pay this website a visit and follow Tornado Quest in social media!
