Here is a discussion of significant April snowstorms in Minnesota and the top 10 list for the Twin Cities prior to this year from the Minnesota State Climatology Office. Many backyard and cooperative weather observers take 24-hour measurements of snowfall in the morning. The Twin Cities National Weather ...
Based on climatology, it can help answer that question for your area. Derived from NOAA's 1981–2010 U.S. Climate Normals—30-year averages of climatological variables like temperatures—the map shows the time of year, on average, that areas across the nation can expect to see their temperatures dip ...

This requires some digging into the climatological records for Columbia. While temperature records are official dating back to 1850, snow records only date back to 1890. 127 years of snow data and out of those years, only 34 years have closed with April snowfall. That equates to a 27 percent chance that it ...

Between 1980 and 2010 -- the most recent climatological period -- Michiana saw 12 tornadoes in March. That number essentially doubled to 23 for April and doubled again between April and May. Meteorologists and climatologists use 30-year periods like the one above to achieve rough averages and ...

The men eat their shoes, shiver in the shadows, trek across an empty expanse. Hinds pontificates, and Harris mutters. People start to die, in ways that are obvious and then unexpected. The Terror can be scary, but it's real achievement is climatological. The freeze is tangible. When you watch it, wear a ...
Our main focus should be on longer term (climatology) market trends. So what is this late stage bull market, now over nine years old, likely to do by the end of this year? We think markets are entering what we'll call a "cautionary growth stage." The recent correction returned a sense of balance to share ...
“It would generally start around the astronomical season, even though our climatological records are recorded that way for the meteorological season,” Sutherland said. “When we talk about the forecast, we tend to try to align it to what people expect of the date…so we present that earlier but we don't ...
