Understanding the Weather

Group Leader: Nick Ricketts

Meets: 2nd Mon from 11.00 at Palace Gate, South Street

A variety of topics ranging from local events to climate change.

Last summer was very hot and dry in Siberia, leading to an unprecedented outbreak of forest fires. The fires died out with the oncome of winter but, in a few places, continued to burn in the underlying peat. Very high temperatures have again been recently reported in Arctic Siberia and fires have now been breaking out spontaneously in these areas. Similar fires are also being reported from Alaska.

Tropical Storm Cristobal is now developing over the Bay of Campeche, in the southern Gulf of Mexico. It is regarded as a new storm, although owing its origins to Amanda that originated in the Pacific off the coast of Guatemala. Cristobal is expected to be slow-moving with severe gale force winds for a couple of days and weakening before moving north across the Gulf of Mexico and intensifying again.

Tropical cyclone Nisarga is approaching Mumbai and is expected to cross the Indian coast south of the city. Heavy rain is already being reported.
