As of the evening of 1 January 2018, the Global Weather and Climate Center has updated its 4-panel display to now the include the Atlantic Ocean and North America surface analysis map analysis display. As a result of the fact that the Atlantic Hurricane Season ends on an annual basis back on 30 November, there was a desire to update the 4-panel display to reflect issues pertaining to the Winter-time months. Thus, since most major Winter weather stories across the contiguous United States are focused towards the East Coast region, there was an inclination to shift the primary focus to eastern North America. This will be a regular updating graphic that will emanate from the NWS Ocean Prediction Center. To learn more about the source point of this updating graphic, feel free to click the link on this graphic embedded within the 4-panel display on the home-page of this website.

Within the last 24 hours, the Global Weather and Climate Center's Co-Founder Jake Mulholland published his first official journal article in the American Meteorological Society's journal called Monthly Weather Review. It is a neat compilation of his in-depth research focusing on details pertaining to misovortices within a Long-Lake Axis-Parallel Lake-Effect Snowband during the OWLeS Project. It is a great read and is absolutely worth taking a closer look at when you have the chance to do so. To learn more about this brand new article which is hot-off-the-press, click on the following link. We thank Jake Mulholland for his contributions both to science, society, and the Global Weather and Climate Center organization with this brand new journal article published by the American Meteorological Society.
