I got my AMS State of the Climate in 2008. I’m browsing through it now. I’ve come across a number of interesting results – mostly about the wide-ranging impacts the moderate La Nina had on the planet’s weather patterns and observations last year. With the La Nina over and a new El Nino continuing to intensify, 2009 and 2010 will hold interesting phenomena as well.
I plan on posting some tidbits about 2008 results and put them in context with how things have developed so far this year. Between sorting through the big report, work and a modeling class, I might not post as often or as much as I’d like. We’ll see what happens.
