Southern Hemisphere Weather

Posted Jun 9th - 6:11pm

Is there also a jet stream in the southern hemisphere that flows from east to west?? It seems I may have heard that somewhere. Does it affect our weather in the Northern hemisphere? Also, how quickly can the jet stream change positions. Does it take days to be manuevered by a low or high pressure, or does the jet stream move the high and low pressures; can it take place in the matter minutes. I know a storm can come in quickly but does it take days to break down the high or low?

A Few Basic Questions

Posted Jun 9th - 5:58pm


I am a high school sophomore and my dream is to become a meteorologist.

I have a few questions, if you don't mindů

Dry Places

Posted Jun 9th - 5:28pm

My question is this: what are the 6 driest states in the USA; if possible, please put in order- 1 thru 6. It is uncertain in my mind and here at work, we are having a rather mix-up debate on this issue.

Thank you,

Bob H.

Daily Highs

Posted Jun 8th - 3:30pm

I was looking at the forecast for today and saw that the projected high for the day was 53 F. But when I went to bed last night at 0100 it was in the mid 70's. You are obviously not counting from midnight. When does the weather day begin?

Colors in the Sky

Posted May 27th - 6:04pm

I saw this in the sky around noon and thought it looked really cool. It's a rainbow but there was no storm, does it have a particular name and if so what is it called? Does it have any meaning? Feel free to use the pictures if you would like to.
