Happy Groundhog Day! This year started off rather well and we had over 8000 classifications.

Interesting ring of convection

Interesting ring of convection

For January 2015, we had 8414 classifications of 619 storms from 417 citizen scientists (45 returning and 372 were new this month).

Here’s a recent image from the CycloneCenter talk page. It shows a ring of convective cells that may appear to be an eye, but not in the traditional sense. Have you seen any interesting or confusing images? If so, ask your questions on talk and someone from the Science Team will respond soon. We really enjoy engaging using talk. It is how we find many of the more interesting storm images.

Thank you to all for making CycloneCenter.org a great success!!
