While many may think of WDT as the parent company of WeatherOps forecasts or RadarScope, we are much more than that. We also work with all types of weather data using GIS, APIs, and more. Let’s take a look at the variety of images we can produce using data from the recent Tropical Storm Alberto.
While Kilauea has been erupting continuously since 1983, the volcano has become more active in recent weeks, spewing both large quantities of lava on the northeastern flank of the volcano into some populated areas, and sending explosive bursts of ash into the atmosphere at the summit.

For the past few years, there has been a lot of talk in the news about El Niño. Now, it’s time for the opposite pattern to appear: La Niña. The change it causes to Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) will influence our winter weather. While an El Niño is an anomalous warming of the central and eastern
Perhaps one of the most noticeable aspects of the weather is the wind. It can be a welcome breeze or a hazardous gale, and changes can occur rapidly. So, what causes the wind? Wind is the result of differences in air pressure. It is produced in an attempt by the atmosphere to equalize pressure over
The weather is moderating across most of the country at this time of year, and many areas are enjoying at least occasional pleasant weather days. So, we decided to take a look at which cities in the country have the most and fewest number of nice weather days per year. Everyone has their own idea
There are a number of atmospheric oscillations that are important drivers of week-to-week weather patterns across North America. The Arctic Oscillation (AO) and the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) often get the most attention, but one of the most important pattern oscillations for North America is the Eastern Pacific Oscillation or EPO. As the name implies,
