Spring is around the corner! This week in fact, on Tuesday, March 20th, and the Northeast is coming up on its 4th Nor'Easter this month. 

Why so much snow and rain? What is with this pattern? How long will it continue? When will spring arrive!!! 

Predicted: Tuesday 3/20/18 at 8pm ET (Blue Snow / Green Rain)

Why so much stormy weather? This pattern is occurring due to a stationary High pressure system over the Atlantic Basin. This is known as the blocking high, which sets up near Greenland and Iceland. The placement of this high pressure allows for the increasing the potential for cold, stormy weather in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. The longer the high pressure sits - the longer the pattern is likely to conti...

 Climate is Always Changing

Climatic discussions usually lead to a range of solutions and a great many conflicting opinions as to the cause of climatic change and what the effect of that change will or may be. Climate has and always will dictate humankind’s actions and activities.

Climate forecasting, unlike that of weather forecasting, is much more difficult. Despite all the advancements in the field, there are still extreme limitation on the accuracy of climate and long-range weather forecasting. No matter how powerful the world’s greatest super-computer is, the calculation it is capable of performing still fall far short of being able to embrace all of the complexities of atmospheric-influenced processes that o...

As fall has begun, the next biggest question on everyone's mind is what kind of winter are we looking at? 

We have complied all data from multiple platforms and our team has come up with our predictions, and it looks to be slightly different than last years winter!

Models are trending towards an ever so slightly warmer winter for a large portion of the United States, especially the mid to lower half, along with the east coast. This does not necessarily mean a warm and dry winter by any means.

There looks to be above a 50% chance that the northern and mid United States will receive greater precipitation amounts than normal. These amounts are likely to affect the east coast as well, due to storm movement and upper atm...

Zika virus – the name itself instills fear in many today, whether they are North or South of the equator.  It may have sound foreign to Americans a few years ago; however now it’s been creeping its way north, one degree at a time, same as the global rise in temperature.

Zika is a flavivirus, a type of virus that mutates frequently, and is spread through animal vectors, in this case: the A. aegypti mosquito.  Numerous birth defects and other side effects have been attributed to a new mutation in the Zika virus; most commonly, infected pregnant mothers have been giving birth to babies with abnormally small heads and neurological disorders like Guillan-Barre syndrome.  Until recently, most of these tragic stories hav...
