Earlier today, NewScientist invited me (via email) to become an "instant Expert" on a number of scientific topics. I took them up on the offer (free) and accessed an extremely well done (lots of graphics) report on Extreme Weather by Jeff Masters.

On the off chance that you did not receive the same invite from NewScientists that i did, here's a direct link to the Master's report:

Should the avialability of this document be announced in a SkS blog post?

Some posts on extreme weather is on my "to do" list. I think we've been a bit remiss in this regard. Be interested to see what you guys come up with.

I'll generate a rough draft for you to review. I'm sure you'll want to embelish it. My knowledge base about severe weather is rudimentary at best. 

BTW, Has the WMO or any other like orginaztion adopted working definitions of what constitutes a "severe weather event"?
