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.
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.
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.
