Unseasonable Warmth for Central USA While Category 4+”Eta” Threatens Central America

Graphic: Twin Cities National Weather Service. Moderately Cold by Mid-November. Jet stream winds buckle within 1-2 weeks with more Canadian than Pacific air infiltrating the USA, pushing any lingering warmth into far southern states. It was a good run whileit lasted, I guess.

Rapid Ocean Warming Poses New Challenges for Tropical Cyclone Prediction

Better Hurricane Forecasts Will Require Near-Real-Time, Deep Ocean Monitoring “How many more eyewall replacement cycles before landfall? Let me check the latest real-time, deep ocean temperature anomalies first”. This scenario may not be as far-fetched as it sounds. Recent studies confirm warming of the world’s oceans is taking place faster than previously estimated; as much as 40% faster than the United Nations estimated in 2015. The implications of warming seas include stronger and more rapidly-intensifying hurricanes and more extreme rainfall amounts. Research confirms roughly 93% of the additional warming from man-made greenhouse gases is going into the world’s oceans. Climate...

New Tropical Map Layers in the AerisWeather Mapping Platform

We recently introduced the new Hurricane API, including the tropical cyclones endpoint, within our AerisWeather API. And while real-time, easy-to-use data is useful, visualizations of that data is what helps tell the story in minimizing storm risks. Today, we are announcing new tropical map layers within the AerisWeather Maps Platform (AMP). These new tropical map layers allow you to create a variety of tropical weather maps within your own apps and projects. Tropical Cyclones, the Primary Layer The single tropical cyclones layer is the most commonly used tropical layer and displays all active cyclones across the globe, including the Atlantic, East Pacific...
