A new study in Earth Interactions uses tree-ring-based reconstructions of the Palmer drought severity index (PDSI) for the period 1475–2017 to explore the variability of spatially extensive U.S. droughts through time and across space.

In April 2018, a series of thunderstorms over the northern slopes of Kaua‘i, Hawaii, produced enough precipitation (~50 in.) to break the U.S. rainfall record previously set in 1979. A new article in MWR examines this record breaking event using National Weather Service operational and special datasets.
A new study in WAF examines the relative skill of models of wind gust occurrence and magnitude that employ different statistical methods in order to improve short-term forecasts.
Previous theories predict the ocean density structure to adjust to a change in winds over the Southern Ocean within centuries whereas climate models show this adjustment will take thousands of years. A new study in JPO investigates the the time-dependent response of the meridional overturning circulation and low-latitude pycnocline depth to Southern Ocean wind stress changes using a hierarchy of models.
