Research results relevant to the analysis and prediction of observed atmospheric circulations and physics, including technique development, data assimilation, model validation, and relevant case studies. This includes papers on numerical and data assimilation techniques that apply to the atmosphere and/or ocean environments as well as socioeconomic analyses of the impacts of weather and weather forecasts. MWR focuses on phenomena having seasonal and subseasonal time scales. Reviews of climatological aspects of high-impact events such as hurricanes, as well as review articles, are occasionally published.
A new project harnessing data from a Japanese satellite could improve weather forecasting and allow officials to issue life-saving warnings before natural disasters, researchers say.
Researchers have updated a map of the UK that pinpoints tornado hotspots for the first time in two decades.
Strong pressure systems a third of a world apart may set up conditions to stir powerful summer dust storms over the Arabian Peninsula.
New research from North Carolina State University has found that wind patterns in the lowest 500 meters of the atmosphere near supercell thunderstorms can help predict whether that storm will generate a tornado. The work ...
Researchers say they've come up with a way to predict the likelihood of tornadoes two or three weeks in advance—a step toward better warnings of storms that kill an average of 80 Americans each year.
The Arctic has changed at a faster rate than the rest of the planet. Clouds impact the surface energy budget and, thus, the melting or growth of land- and ocean-based ice. Many Arctic clouds are "mixed phase," consisting ...
The Beijing metropolitan region (BMR) often suffers from heavy rainfall events. The complex topography with the Yan Mountains to the north and the Taihang Mountains to the west, as well as the diverse underlying urban surfaces, ...
A new study by Florida State University researchers demonstrates a different way of projecting a hurricane's strength and intensity that could give the public a better idea of a storm's potential for destruction.
Significant tornado outbreaks and especially strong tornadoes are more likely occur within periods of activity lasting three or more days, according to a Purdue University tornado expert.
In southeastern Wyoming, people are more than ready this time of year to get outside and enjoy the warmer weather. Then, suddenly, they feel the wind pick up and the temperatures cool ‑‑ signs of an impending thunderstorm.
