NOAA: “Extremely Active” Tropical Season Likely – August Rainfall Climatology

Pandemic May Be Impacting Forecast Accuracy Meteorology is not an exact science, like economics, foreign policy and dating. Predicting any future state of the atmosphere depends on how well we can capture fluid dynamics within a weather model, and the accuracy and frequency of data powering that model. Think low-octane vs. high-octane fuel. Right now we may be using the cheap stuff. The pandemic has impacted the airlines with fewer flights, and that means less upper-air data flowing into the simulations we rely on to have a prayer of getting the forecast right. Couple that with what’s now predicted to...

Alongside radar, our AerisWeather Maps Platform (AMP) users request weather observation map layers, especially surface temperatures, most frequently. Historically, these layers have been limited to the United States and neighboring regions, which means they aren’t useful for users in other parts of the world. We’ve been working on improving our observation layers over the past several months, and today we are announcing that our weather observation map layers are now available globally! Going Global with Observed Weather Maps We have expanded our default weather observation map layers to global coverage, which update hourly. You won’t need to change your code since...
