Happy holidays everyone! I hope this week’s post finds all of you doing well during this holiday season regardless of what holidays you celebrate. This weeks post will be a short one due to the holidays. Across a large part of North America, a blast of Siberian air has brought freezing temperatures all the way to the Gulf Coast, subzero temperatures across much of the plains and midwest, and travel delays for millions. Therefore, I’ll continue with winter weather safety information that you’ll find helpful.

Tropical Storm Ian gaining strength over the Caribbean on 24 September 2022

Greetings everyone! I hope everyone is doing well. The tropical Atlantic is very busy after a very quiet start to the 2022 hurricane season. Front and center as of this post is Ian which is forecast to intensify into a hurricane, make landfall in Cuba, and then somewhere on the Florida, USA coast as a very strong hurricane. This week, I’ll continue with helpful infographics on preparing an emergency kit that will be helpful in any tropical storm or hurricane scenario as well as an infographic cautioning you to the hazards and dangers of using unofficial sources for weather information. As usual, there are many other essential and important reads to review on climate, weather, and other science related topics, so let’s get started.

Tornado Quest Top Science Links For August 20 – 27, 2022

Greetings to everyone! I hope this week’s post finds all of you doing well. For the time being, the tropical Atlantic is quiet, but that could change over the next few weeks. In the meantime, I will share some infographics on preparing an emergency kit that will be helpful in any tropical storm or hurricane scenario. This week also marked the 30th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew making landfall as a rare Category 5 storm on the Florida coast. There are many other essential and important reads to review, so let’s get started.

Tornado Quest Top Science Links For July 23 – 30, 2022

Greetings to everyone! I hope this week’s post finds all of you doing well. Across much of North America, a brutal heat wave that has turned lethal continues to have many states in its grip. Because of this ongoing and very serious danger, we’ll continue this week with safety infographics on heat safety. There are many other essential reads to review, so let’s get started.

SUMMER WEATHER SAFETY

Summer heat is one of the leading causes of weather related deaths and illnesses. Due to its slow yet potentially deadly ways in which is affects the human body, even the most physically fit individual who is well hydrated can succumb to heat exhaustion or heat stroke very quickly. As of mid July, over ten deaths have occurred in the USA due to individuals being left in vehicles. All of those fatalities were preventable. Summer heat is often called the ‘silent killer‘ and for good reason. Much of the contiguous USA is in the midst of a brutal heat wave with little to no relief in long range forecasts. Take the heat safety information below very seriously. It could save a life.

The Heat Index is a very important part of summer safety. Here’s an excellent page from the National Weather Service in Amarillo, Texas that explains how to calculate heat index and why it’s important.
