Climate Central …:”launched this tool to help meteorologists and journalists cover connections between weather, news, and climate in real time, and to alert public and private organizations and individuals about particular local conditions related to climate change, its impacts, or its solutions.
Realtime Climate monitors local weather and events across the U.S. and generates alerts when certain conditions are met or expected. These alerts provide links to science-based analyses and visualizations—including locality-specific, high-quality graphics—that can help explain events in the context of climate change….
Alerts are sent when particular conditions occur or are forecast to occur in the next few days. Examples include:
- Unusual heat (single day and multi-day)
- Heat Index
- Unusual Rainfall
- Coastal Flooding
- Air Quality
- Seasonal shifts (spring leaf-out, etc.)
- Ice/snow cover (Great Lakes)
- High local or regional production of solar or wind energy
More conditions will be added soon, including:
