96L Off the Coast of Africa Growing More Organized

Dr. Jeff Masters, July 28, 2016

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

A strong tropical wave that moved off the coast of Africa on Wednesday morning has become more organized over the far eastern Atlantic, and has the potential to develop into a tropical depression in the coming days as it tracks west-northwestward at 10 - 15 mph into the middle Atlantic.

Hottest Reliably Measured Air Temperatures on Earth

Christopher C. Burt, July 22, 2016

Weather Historian, Weather Underground

As Jeff Masters mentioned in his recent blog, a temperature of 54.0°C (129.2°F) was observed at Mitribah, Kuwait on July 21st. According to the Kuwait Meteorological Department this was the hottest temperature ever measured in the country (a reading of 54.4°C/129.9°F observed at the same site on July 16, 2010 has been disallowed as a result of a faulty sensor). The 54.0°C reading also is a new record for Asia and ties a similar reading at Death Valley (on June 30, 2013) as the hottest reliably measured temperature on Earth. The key word here is ‘reliably’. Many hotter temperatures have been reported from around the world in years past. However, all of these have credibility issues. In that vein I am going to revisit a blog I first posted on WU in October 2010 listing all the various claims to temperature readings at or above 54°C (129.2°F). In the years since I made that post I’ve learned more about some of these claims and have thus updated my entries and ‘validity’ scores as a result.

When Chicago is Capital

Dr. Ricky Rood, July 11, 2016

Professor, University of Michigan

After watching a scientist talk about climate change, you decide your city should be a climate winner. You have water, lots of water. And, well you have never heard anyone complain about how hot it is in the winter or, really, the summer. How can you use climate change to rebuild your city?

The remnants of Hurricane Linda will track toward southern California in addition to a deepening trough. This will allow for a moist, upslope flow to provide the first widespread rain of the fall season across the region.
