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.

Tornado Quest Top Science Links For December 4 – 11, 2021

Greetings to one and all. For much of North America, the start of the meteorological winter has gotten a mild beginning. In fact, as you man have heard, some of the higher elevations in Hawaii had a blizzard warning before one had been issued in the contiguous USA. The latest big weather news is the 10 December 2021 tornado outbreak across several states. This is a painful reminder that significant tornado events can occur in any month of the year. It will be many days before the National Weather Service can compile post storm data and complete comprehensive damage surveys. As usual, this is a developing scenario that will evolve a great deal over the next few days and weeks. There are many other interesting stories to review, so let’s get started.

WINTER WEATHER SAFETY

This week, we’ll continue posts on winter weather safety with at wind chill. This is one of the most dangerous winter weather hazards, especially in regions where winters are long and high winds are common. This handy chart will help you quickly determine wind chill and how long you can be exposed before frostbite and/or hypothermia can become a serious health danger.
