Atmospheric Rivers

  Broadcast in Weather

Call in to speak with the host

Atmospheric Rivers are relatively narrow regions in the atmosphere that are responsible for most of the horizontal transport of water vapor outside of the tropics. While ARs come in many shapes and sizes, those that contain the largest amounts of water vapor, the strongest winds, and stall over watersheds vulnerable to flooding, can create extreme rainfall and floods. Think Sandy. Think 10x bigger than Sandy.
