Scientists show climate patterns may influence extreme U.S. tornado seasons

NOAA and university researchers believe they have found a climate signal related to a specific phase of the El Niño-Southern Oscillation that could be linked to, and possibly serve as a predictor of, massive tornado outbreaks.

Solving coastal California’s precipitation puzzle

Starting this summer, NOAA and the Sonoma County Water Agency will kick off a four-year, $19 million project to build a new regional radar and advanced rainfall forecast system to give water agencies in the nine-county San Francisco Bay area better warning about potential flooding and water quality impacts from heavy rainfall events.

Summer of research to improve hurricane forecasting

Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013 helps support research to improve severe weather forecasting

This summer, NOAA scientists and partners are launching a number of new unmanned aircraft and water vehicles to collect weather information as part of a coordinated effort to improve hurricane forecasts.  

Several of these research projects and other NOAA led efforts to improve hurricane forecasting were made possible, in part, because of the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013. The act was passed by Congress and signed by the President in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. It provides $60 billion in funding to multiple agencies for disaster relief. NOAA received $309.7 million to provide technical assistance to those states with coastal and fishery impacts from Sandy, and to improve weather forecasting and weather research and predictive capability to help future preparation, response and recovery from similar events.

Target: Hurricanes

NOAA scientists part of NASA-led mission to study the damaging storms with unmanned aircraft, new instruments

Researchers from NASA, NOAA, the National Center for Atmospheric Research and others are launching a three-year mission to better understand what makes hurricanes intensify or weaken, and what factors steer the destructive storms.

The citizen scientists behind NOAA's Old Weather project

A citizen scientist program now in its sixth year, the Old Weather project asks volunteers to transcribe weather data from 19th century ship logs. These data sets are then used to better inform scientific analysis of Earth’s climate and climate change.
