Anyone have any predictions for major headline weather events for 2014? Either in your neck of the woods or worldwide? It can involve a trend that effects the entire world (El nino coming up in the summer?) or a single event that devastates a region (hurricane?) or a breaking a major record (a new highest temperature ever recorded on earth).

What do you think will be the biggest weather headlines for 2014?

New Zealand - Campbell Island becomes 6th sunniest location, after installing the same type/brand of sunshine recorder as Fakertane.

New Zealand - Jacob River declared world's sunniest place, after installation of the same type/brand of sunshine recorder Fakertane.

In that case, would Orlando have a high of around 25 F and a low of 15 F and a full out blizzard? Does Disney World shut down?

After a slow start to the 2013-2014 season, the Tahoe region receives record breaking amounts of snow. Sugar Bowl records 980 inches, Squaw Valley records 960 inches, and Kirkwood records 950 inches. The insane amounts of snowfall never truly melts until mid August.

Meanwhile, San Fransisco receives 3 inches of accumulating snow in late January, while cities in the East Bay receive as much as 10 inches and the high points of the area (Mt. Diablo and Mt. Hamilton) receive as much as two feet during the large, very cold storm.

Yay!

It's time we had a hot summer in the UK. It isn't statistically likely but I want all three months to be about 3°C warmer than average with widespread 30-35°C.

I predict the opposite: January 2014 will be literally bone-dry with not a single drop of rain anywhere in the Bay Area (driest January ever). February and March will bring a few days light rain. April will be totally dry. May will bring one day of light rain as well. June, as usual, will be bone dry. The 2013-2014 will break the record for the driest rainfall year in the Bay Area. Things will change as the Eastern Pacific warms up in the summer setting the stage for a very strong El Nino event.

In late August, the Bay Area will receive the remains of a dying Eastern Pacific hurricane sending strong thunderstorms widespread throughout the Bay Area (first widespread heavy summer rain in decades!) Then in late September, the "regular" rainy season gets an early start bringing WAY above average rainfall from September through December. In November, 2014, a megastorm resulting in the merging of a cold low pressure system dropping from the Gulf of Alaska merges with a flume of subtropical moisture streaming from Hawaii drops all time record setting 24 hour rainfall totals throughout the Bay Area with the drier spots getting around 5-6 inches of rain and the wetter spots getting well over a foot. The 2014-2015 rainfall year sets the record for the WETTEST rainfall year in the Bay Area by a wide margin ironically after 2013-2014 was the driest.
