Sharing Technical and Scientific Knowledge About Extreme Precipitation … since 1994
New Source for the Latest Atmospheric River Information
The new Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes (CW3E) provides focused attention on atmospheric rivers (AR) impacting Western North America.
Look at the What's New section on the homepage for the latest.
CW3E opened in 2013 and is part of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego.
Observing Atmospheric Rivers in Real Time
Atmospheric rivers (ARs) have been in the news as they have been bringing significant precipitation to California and the other West Coast states in December 2014. Real-time viewing of ARs as they travel across the Pacific Ocean is provided by the University of Wisconsin, Madison's MIMIC-TPW site. You can see real-time info or access the archives for specific dates back to 2007.
