Global Outlook: Weather Website Tracks Climate Change

A new website, WXshift.org, published by the hybrid science and journalism nonprofit Climate Central, provides climate projections for a specific location along with the day’s weather. In addition to a typical forecast of highs and lows, UV (ultraviolet rays) index, wind and times of sunrise and sunset, it graphically shows if the area indicates a warming uptick and by how much.

A 40-year-trend-to-date display offers a projection to 2050 and what the weather will be like for the next generation. Geoff Grant, director of digital media for Climate Central, says, “This is just putting weather and climate data together. There’s no spin to it. The weather is how everyone experiences climate.”

WXshift draws from 2,000 weather stations across the country and 100 years of temperature, rain and snow data to create customized climate graphics. Tutorials explain such topics as the difference between dew point and humidity, along with news and information about relevant issues.
