spring 2019

Dear theWeather Club e-newsletter readers,

Welcome to Issue 25 of theWeather Club e-newsletter.

It has been a record-breaking start to 2019! From heatwaves in Australia to extreme snowfall in Europe, we have certainly experienced a variety of extreme events across the globe. This season’s newsletter will explore some of these events across the globe and the driving forces behind this weather.

Our guest writer is Sandra Angers-Blondin, who has recently completed her PhD at the University of Edinburgh, measuring the responses of tundra plants to climate change. She is also a photographer with a passion for the natural world and has provided some beautiful images from her time in Qikiqtaruk. We explore some recent research in the fields of weather and climate and the key features which have shaped winter weather of 2019.

Our Weather Jobs section provides insight into some of the top jobs currently offered in weather, climate and atmospheric science through the Royal Meteorological Society Jobs Board. Since launching in 2016, the Jobs Board has been extremely successful in matching professionals with employers across academic, research, public and private sectors.

As always, we welcome your feedback. If there are any topics you would like us to discuss in the future please contact us at

We hope you enjoy reading!
