I’m taking a break from the blog for ten days while I attend a conference on high impact weather and climate and celebrate my my 25th wedding anniversary with my husband John Knox and friends.
While I’m gone, you can find a list of web sites that you can use to find your own weather and climate information at http://site.extension.uga.edu/climate/2014/09/list-of-web-sites-with-weather-and-climate-data-for-georgia-and-beyond/. If you need more help, contact the Southeast Regional Climate Center or the State Climatologist for your state. They’ve all been listed here in the blog before or search online. They are very helpful people!
Climate predictions are updated twice a month, and the Drought Monitor comes out with a new map every Thursday morning. You can see the latest map at http://www.gaclimate.org. NOAA’s global climate summary for June should be coming out before I get back. And you can get your own Qualitative Precipitation Forecast maps at http://www.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/qpf/day1-7.shtml.
If there is a particular question you need me to answer, feel free to write. I’ll be checking email, but that is not going to be a high priority on this vacation! I will get back to you when I can.
