Weather Factors Associated with Extremely Large Fires and Fire Growth Days

A new study in Earth Interactions examines differences in the daily weather during "megafires" and other smaller fires, and in the two sets of fires’ responses to daily weather and antecedent atmospheric dryness.

Significance Statements
Significance Statements

Significance statements are optional statements written in plain language that focus on why the work matters and provide additional context for why the work is relevant to science and society. Authors submitting to AMS Journals (except BAMS) now can include a Significance Statement as part of their paper. Visit our significance statements page for more information. The Significance Statement option for authors submitting to other AMS journals will be added later this year.

High-Latitude Precipitation: Snowfall Regimes at Two Distinct Sites in Scandinavia
High-Latitude Precipitation: Snowfall Regimes at Two Distinct Sites in Scandinavia

A recent study in JAMC documents the prevailing snowfall regimes at two Scandinavian sites, Haukeliseter, Norway, and Kiruna, Sweden, using ground-based in situ and remote sensing methods, reveals that three distinct snowfall regimes occur at both sites: shallow, deep, and intermittent snowfall. 

Tornadoes in Hurricane Harvey
Tornadoes in Hurricane Harvey

In August 2017, Hurricane Harvey produced 52 tornadoes over a record-breaking seven consecutive days. A new study in WAF provides an event overview as well as a comparison of near-cell environments and radar attributes between tornadic and nontornadic warned cells highlighting the potential of improving warnings for tropical cyclone tornadoes.

Low-Level Updraft Intensification in Response to Environmental Wind Profiles
Low-Level Updraft Intensification in Response to Environmental Wind Profiles

A new JAS study uses self-organizing maps and idealized numerical simulations of updrafts to investigate a “dynamical response” that can occur in supercells. This dynamical response may modulate a supercell’s ability to stretch near-surface vertical vorticity to achieve tornadogenesis.
