This Weather & Climate Reference page brings together a selection for news, scientific data, opinion and other websites of interest to me. This is by no means an attempt at a complete list, just an easy reference page, which perhaps you’ll find handy as well. Linking to a site does not per se mean I vouch for its contents.
Couple of my climate blog posts:
- !–> 2011: Why I Question the CO2-driven Global Warming “Scientific Consensus”
- 2014: Global Cooling ahead? (w/ Global Annual Average Temperature Anomalies, etc,…) [Based on solar changes’ hypothesized effect on Earth’s climate, I would not be surprised if a significant cooling would set in somewhere in the period 2017-2023. However, like anyone else who can acknowledge vast uncertainties, I really don’t know.]
links are for my own refernce, but perhaps they can be of use to you as well:
Weather & Climate Websites:
For historical weather data:
- !–> Weather Underground (wunderground.com)
- !–> University of Maine / Climate Change Institute (very nice imagery of temperature, anomalies, etc.: http://cci-reanalyzer.org/
- !–> Mammoth Weather – Howard’s Top 10 – Brought to you by Howard Sheckter.
- EDW – El Dorado Weather, ‘your source for world weather’ (great access to satellite images, etc.)
- http://coolwx.com/ – maintained by Robert Hart, PhD.
- which includes the Unisys Ocean Temperature Anomaly map
- http://www.weatherbell.com/ – By a group of independent meteorologists: Long Range Weather Predictions, lots of links (radar, global temps, etc.), etc.
- Cascade Crud: Pacific Northwest mountain snow and weather
- Current Snow Cover (Northern Hemisphere) anomaly map.
Specific Locations & Current Weather:
