Sunday Weather Journal: 2014 off to a warm start in Tucson, haboob hits Central Plains, coldest February globally in 20 years

Courtesy: NWS Tucson

"The Journal" is back after a few weeks off. As a heads up, the blog will be getting very quiet come April as I'll be on paternity leave. Until then, here's what made headlines over the last week...

- Tucson reached a yearly average temp of 60° on Tuesday, becoming the earliest date (March 18th) to reach that mark on record.

- No big surprise here - Arizona likely to see warm and dry conditions persist through the Spring.

- This, however, is a surprise: Arizona's seen more tornadoes this month than all of Tornado Alley. Here's proof.

- NWS Tucson wasting no time in prepping for Monsoon 2014. First SKYWARN spotter course happening tomorrow night in Nogales.

- Another week, another dust storm in the Central Plains. NWS summarizes Tuesday's haboob.

- What happens when a dust devil kicks up tumbleweeds in the middle of a prescribed burn in Colorado? Watch.

- NOAA's State of the Climate report says February global land surface temperatures were the coldest recorded in 20 years.

- The White House launched a site for one-stop climate data shopping. Story here, actual site here.

- LA's largest earthquake since Northridge struck Monday morning, measured at 4.4 magnitude. Odds of a larger quake happening shortly after the initial shock? Very small.
