NOAA-funded research could help early prediction of extreme heat waves

New research partially funded by NOAA’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program may enable longer-term forecasts of U.S. heat waves. Scientists from the National Center for Atmospheric Research have fingerprinted a distinctive atmospheric wave pattern high above the Northern Hemisphere that can foreshadow the emergence of summertime heat waves in the United States more than two weeks in advance.
