Enigma Labs | Temperature Anomalies
"Every day, the Global Historical Climatology Network collects temperatures from 90,000 weather stations. Dating back as far as the late 1700's, the records provide an incredible source of insight into our changing climate. Using this data, we can determine what the weather is normally like for most places on Earth. We can tell you that the average low temperature in New York City on January 11th is 29°F and that the average high temperature in Los Angeles on July 24th is 80°F. Once we know what temperatures to expect on any given day with a certain degree of confidence, we can sift out the uneventful days, leaving only anomalous weather events."

Storm Prediction Center Severe Thunderstorm Forecasting Video Lecture Series
"We present a video lecture series on severe thunderstorm forecasting, a collaboration between the NOAA Storm Prediction Center, The University of Oklahoma, the NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory, and the NOAA Warning Decision Training Division. This is based on a three-semester-hour graduate-level course offered at The University of Oklahoma about applications of meteorological theory to the forecasting of severe thunderstorms (Meteorology 5403/4403: Applications of Meteorological Theory to Severe-Thunderstorm Forecasting). This course is led by SPC forecasters Ariel Cohen and Richard Thompson, and University of Oklahoma faculty member Steven Cavallo. During each spring semester from 2015 to 2017, this course has provided an opportunity to bridge the academic and operational disciplines of meteorology, allowing students to learn from experienced forecasters who have performed research on a variety of topics. During spring 2017, many lectures comprising Meteorology 5403/4403 and other related lectures relevant to severe thunderstorm forecasting were recorded. YouTube links to these recordings and accompanying descriptions are provided below as an educational resource. "

Home | International Cloud Atlas
"Welcome to the official site of the World Meteorological Organization’s (WMO) International Cloud Atlas. This Atlas describes the classification system for clouds and meteorological phenomena used by all WMO Members. The classifications also describe meteorological meteors other than clouds – hydrometeors, lithometeors, photometeors, and electrometeors."

Water Data Portal
"The International Water Management Institute (IWMI) has been doing research on water for the last 30 years. Being a non-profit research organization all the research outputs and data used for the research are shared with researchers across the globe as a global public goods (GPGs). The Water Data Portal (WDP), following "one-stop shop" approach, provides access to a large amount of data related to water and agriculture. WDP contains meteorological, hydrological, socio-economic, spatial data layer, satellite images as well as hydrological model setups. The data in the WDP, both spatial & non-spatial, are supported by the standardized metadata and are available for download by user including academia, scientists, researchers and decision makers. However, access is provided in compliance with copyrights, intellectual property rights and data agreements with our partners."

"We chase landfalling hurricanes in the USA, Mexico, and across the world, capturing and sharing the experiences via on-the-spot blogging, social media, and action-packed video footage.   No chase turf is too remote, no storm too severe for iCyclone. It’s all part of the game."

Blizzard Buries New England, Breaks Snowfall Records | Climate Central
"Studies have linked this trend in extreme precipitation events to manmade global warming, since warming increases atmospheric moisture. However, much of the increase in one-day extreme precipitation events during the cold season in the Northeast has taken place in the fall and early spring, rather than February."

STAR CITY SCENE • View topic - Non-meteorologist's guide to meteorology (for NERDS!!!!!!)
Why do they call it meteorology if it's the study of the atmosphere and not the study of space rocks? Because 'meteor' refers to things in the atmosphere called hydrometeors (water vapor, ice, hail) and lithometeors (non-water things - dust, ash, sand) and how they change forms and interact in different ways to rain on your golf game. It's an ungodly communistic Frankenstein-like amalgamation of math, chemistry, physics, geography, intuition, experience, and gut feelings.

NCAR / SIP The Societal Impacts Program
"The Collaborative Program on the Societal Impacts and Economic Benefits of Weather Information (SIP), better known as the Societal Impacts Program (SIP), focuses on improving societal gains from weather forecasting by infusing social science research, methods, and capabilities into the Weather Enterprise. SIP serves as a focal point for developing and supporting a closer relationship between weather researchers, operational forecasters, relevant end users, and social scientists concerned with the impacts of weather and weather information on society. Program activities include primary research, outreach and education, the Weather and Society*Integrated Studies (WAS*IS) program, and development and support for the weather societal-impacts community."
