Severe Thunderstorm and Heavy Rain Threat Along the East Coast

Severe thunderstorms capable of widespread damaging winds and a few tornadoes will shift across the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast states today and tonight. Heavy rainfall and a risk of flash flooding is also present as tropical moisture streams north along the East Coast. The highest threat exists from the Carolinas into New England. Read More >

PEAC is transitioning climate services over the the National Weather Service. This transition will be completed June 30th, 2019, and the PEAC Center will be closed. From this point forward there will no longer be hard copies of the newsletter distributed, only the electronic copy will be available on the website.  The Newsletter will also end with the PEAC closing.  Please stay tuned for important information regarding this transition and where to find information post PEAC's closing.

The Pacific ENSO Applications Climate (PEAC) Center was established in August 1994 as a multi-institutional partnership, to conduct research and produce information products on climate variability related to the El Niño - Southern Oscillation (ENSO) climate cycle in the U.S.-Affiliated Pacific Islands (USAPI). PEAC's first collaborators were the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - Office of Global Programs (NOAA/OGP), NOAA National Weather Service - Pacific Region (NWS-PR), the University of Hawaii - School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology UH/SOEST, the University of Guam - Water and Environmental Research Institute (UOG/WERI), and the Pacific Basin Development Council (PDBC). While OGP and PDBC are no longer involved, PEAC now has additional partnerships with the NOAA Climate Program Office (NOAA/CPO), the NOAA Climate Prediction Center (NOAA/CPC), and the International Research Institute for Climate and Society at Columbia University (IRI).

The MISSION of the Pacific ENSO Applications Climate Center is to conduct research and develop information products specific to the USAPI on the ENSO climate cycle, its historical impacts, and latest long-term forecasts of ENSO conditions, in support of planning and management activities in such climate-sensitive sectors as water resource management, fisheries, agriculture, civil defense, public utilities, coastal zone management, and other economic and environmental sectors of importance to the communities of the USAPI. The functions of the individual institutions comprising the PEAC are depicted in the project organization chart.
