Extreme weather has been a hot topic lately.

While the meteorology blogs have been focusing on the recent hurricanes, there are some interesting areas of discussion outside of these extreme events.

1. Cliff Mass

Dr. Cliff Mass is a University of Washington Professor of Atmospheric Sciences.  He gives a 5-minute feature, “Weather with Cliff Mass,” on Fridays at 9am on KNKX — Seattle’s NPR station.

I enjoyed reading The Hurricane Irma Forecast: Triumph or Disappointment?, New Study Suggests Global Warming Will Be Kind to the Northwest: But There Will Still Be Impacts, and Ash is Falling in Seattle.

2. ABC Columbia

John Farley is the Chief Meteorologist at ABC Columbia (South Carolina).

I recommend reading Is it Time for a New Hurricane Scale? and Warming Planet.

3. The Front Page 

The Front Page is produced by the editors of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society. The blog discusses current events and trends.

Atlantic Hurricane Season Begins, Disaster Do-Overs and A Scientific Neighborhood are interesting reads.

4. The Old Farmer’s Almanac

The Old Farmer’s Almanac has been a go-to since 1792 for year-long weather predictions, ranging from sunrise and tide tables to planting charts and more.

Check out: The Cooling Effect of the Sun, Worst Hurricanes in American History (Part I), and Phoning in New Clouds: Part 3 – Meet the Newest Clouds.
