Is it going to be colder than normal? I’m going on vacation in June, what will the weather be like?
These are common questions that we are often asked. To help answer these questions, we are introducing the new climate area, accessible via:
The new climate area incorporates data from several sources into a user friendly and easily accessible format. Some of the great features of the climate area include:
Another great feature of the Normals area and many of the other maps is the ability to click on a regional map to view a tooltip of the data near the location clicked on the map:
In the tooltip you can click the “More Details” link to view the normals in tabular form, either a daily view for the month or a monthly view for the year.
Upcoming HWClimate Service
Within the next couple of weeks, HAMweather will begin offering a HWClimate content service. With this service, you will be able to add custom branded map images and data to your websites, visual displays, mobile devices and more. More details to come.
Once the Northeastern storm exists stage right Friday night, a new storm begins affecting the West Coast on Saturday and continuing through Sunday, bringing heavy snows once again to the mountains with heavy rainfall across Oregon and California. The storm center will make landfall farther south than previous systems which will give western Washington and British Columbia a break from the continuous rain and snows of the last week. The country east of the Rockies will get a much needed break for most of the weekend before another storm system begins taking shape later Sunday afternoon and evening across the Southern Plains. As milder Pacific air continues to flood the country next week, many areas will see rain with this next system with the exception being the usual areas where it wants to snow this year–the northern Plains and far northern parts of New England. Severe weather will once again be possible across the Gulf Coast states as the accompanying cold front scours out high levels of moisture engulfing the region from the Gulf and Pacific.
