    An interesting report from the JMA featured on the WMO website, about the pattern of extreme weather experienced over the first 6 weeks of 2014.

     

     

    Parts of the world have witnessed a series of extreme weather conditions in the first six weeks of 2014, continuing a pattern that was set in December 2013.

    Much of the United States of America has experienced cold waves and major winter storms, whilst California remains gripped by drought.

    The United Kingdom has seen its wettest December-January period on record, with severe, widespread and prolonged flooding. A combination of strong winds, storms and high tides caused damage and flooding in other coastal areas of Europe. There has been unusually heavy snowfall in the southern Alps.

    Monthly mean temperatures were extremely high from eastern Mongolia to eastern China.

    In the Southern hemisphere, Australia, Argentina and Brazil  experienced extended heatwaves.

    Throughout this period, national meteorological and hydrological services provided forecasts and regularly-updated warnings.
