Weatherwise Magazine Lists the Year’s Top Weather Events

For Immediate Release
News from Taylor & Francis

Super Storm Sandy Tops the List of 2012’s Biggest Weather Events

“Super Storm Sandy” had to compete with the most extensive drought in more than half a century and one of the worst heat waves since the 1930s dust bowl but, as the impacts from Sandy kept mounting in its aftermath, this remarkable storm climbed up to the number one spot in Weatherwise magazine’s annual tally of the top 10 weather events of the year.

Officially known as “post-tropical cyclone Sandy,” “this storm was amazing in so many ways that it had to rank as the number one event of the year,” according to the compiler of the top 10 lists, meteorologist and Weatherwise Contributing Editor, Doug Le Comte. There was the extraordinary upper-air weather pattern that caused the hurricane to morph into a nor’easter before landfall in New Jersey, the enormous size of the storm and resulting wind fetch that swamped the Jersey and New York coasts with the 8- to 14-foot wall of water, the timing and date (October 29) that resulted in the storm surge combining with an unusually high tide, the landfall near one of the most populous areas of the world, direct damage exceeding $40 billion that made Sandy one of the three most expensive storms to ever strike the United States, the 132 deaths blamed on the storm, the record snowfall in the Appalachians…this list goes on and on.

But let’s not slight the other big story of the year, the heat and drought that cut the U.S. corn crop by 28% and, according to Weatherwise estimates, caused at least $33 billion in agricultural losses. Indeed, severe drought continued to affect crops and pastures in the Great Plains and threaten barge traffic on the Mississippi River into the end of the year.

Below is the full top 10 list:
1) Super Storm Sandy. October 27-29. One of the three most expensive storms to ever strike the U.S. Far-ranging impacts, but most of the damage concentrated in New Jersey and New York.
2) Midwest Drought. June-December. Some $33 billion in damage to corn, soybeans, and hay.
3) Summer Heat Wave. Late June to early August. Triple-digit record heat Denver to Hartford and north to Bismarck. Made July the hottest U.S. month on record.
4) Southern Tornado Outbreak. March 2. Dozens of tornadoes across 12 states took 40 lives and cost over $4 billion in damage.
5) The Great Derecho of 2012. June 29. The band of rapidly-moving severe thunderstorms from the Midwest to the mid-Atlantic left over 4 million homes and businesses without power during a sweltering heat wave.
6) Hurricane Isaac. August 28-29. Category 1 hurricane brought heavy rain and flooding to Louisiana and Mississippi.
7) March Heat. Simply the warmest March on record across the lower 48 states.
8) Mild Winter. December 2011-February 2012. The fourth mildest such period since 1895. Near record low snowfall.
9) February Tornado Outbreak. February 28-29. One of the deadliest February outbreaks on record, Kansas to Indiana, took 15 lives.
10) Western Drought. Winter-summer. Lack of winter snow and abnormal spring warmth cause severe drought, contributing to record wildfires.

Weatherwise Magazine -- September-October 2011

For everyone enjoying the beautiful weather here in D.C. it is reminiscent of a similarly cool fall week 11 years ago. In remembrance of the sad events of September 11, 2001, Sean Potter last year examined the weather patterns that prevailed on that day. http://www.weatherwise.org/Archives/Back%20Issues/2011/September-October%202011/retrospect-full.html

Caption: NOAA/NWS Daily Weather Map for 8:00 a.m. EDT, September 11, 2001. High pressure behind an advancing cold front dominated the eastern United States, providing a beautiful and pleasant start to a day that would end in tragedy with the worst terrorist attack on American soil.

Weatherwise Magazine was recently featured on the TV trivia game show Who Wants to be a Millionaire? A contestant was asked, "According to Weatherwise Magazine, the top US weather event of the 20th Century was the Dust Bowl of what decade?" The answer to the question, the 1930s, comes from Don Lipman's article "The Top US Weather Events of the 20th Century," Part I in the July/August 2011 issue.
