• What if hurricane Sandy struck NYC in the winter?

    Or at least when the air temperatures over the NE were below freezing, how much snow would have fallen? Would Central Park have gotten up to 6 feet of snow?

  • Meteorologically speaking, is there a big difference between Chicago and New York City?

    Best answer: Yes, at least, most people would. The proximity of the ocean has a big impact on weather in NYC, and tends to keep it from the greater extremes of temperature (both hot and cold) that Chicago experiences. Also, the nearness of the ocean is a big source of moisture so NYC tends to be wetter, and tends to get more... show more
    Best answer: Yes, at least, most people would. The proximity of the ocean has a big impact on weather in NYC, and tends to keep it from the greater extremes of temperature (both hot and cold) that Chicago experiences. Also, the nearness of the ocean is a big source of moisture so NYC tends to be wetter, and tends to get more rain or snow when it does get it, than Chicago would.

    Chicago tends to be dominated by weather coming off the plains. NYC is on the other side of the Appalachians and is somewhat protected against those air masses, and the Gulf stream tends to bring weather from the south that keeps the high pressure off the plains toward the inland. So yes, NYC is different in weather from Chicago.

    The truth is, though, in my experience, that everywhere pretty well has its own particular weather that might be similar to other areas but not the same, so if you move several hundred miles from one place to another, you will notice a difference.

  • What does it take to be a meteorologist ?

    Best answer: Meteorology is a scholarly discipline. Weather announcing is a performance art, although sometimes meteorologists are hired to do it. Storm chasing is a pastime. The National Weather Service does hire meteorologists, but probably mostly PhDs.

  • What is Australia weather like in June?

    I'm thinking of taking a trip there, but what is the weather like in June? I know it's the start of winter there, so does that mean it's their rainy season? I'll be doing a lot of outdoor activities, so I want the weather to be nice

  • Is it possible that Chicago will not get any more snow this year?

    So far we have only a little over 9 inches accumulated, mainly due to the frequent trace amounts we've received in late December and early January. The highest single snowfall we've had this season was only 1.8 inches over the span of two days. Last year, Chicago saw a completely snow-less January and... show more
    So far we have only a little over 9 inches accumulated, mainly due to the frequent trace amounts we've received in late December and early January. The highest single snowfall we've had this season was only 1.8 inches over the span of two days. Last year, Chicago saw a completely snow-less January and February (the first time on record) and the pattern seems to be similar this year. Once we get into mid-February, we experience regular temperatures in the 40s and higher, so I think we have a good shot at breaking the record for least snow set back in the 1920/21 season. What do you think?

    This type doesn't seem to shoot down into the earth, but across the clouds. It's alsop frequent with little to no rumbling sound.

    I've lived in England all my life and have always been fairly happy with our weather. It's mild, it's not too cold in the winter, and not too hot in the summer. I wouldn't necessarily choose it, but I don't mind it. We all know the cliche about British weather - it always rains. My friends from other countries always make fun of our weather and talk about how damp and gloomy it is. The problem is, most of them have admitted that there is actually more rain in other European countries. My Polish and Italian friends admitted that if you collected the actual rain in a bucket it probably rains more in their countries. Why exactly does everybody say that Britain is a really wet country? I mean come on, how often are you caught in the rain? Is it REALLY every day?
