Abstract: Abstract Much progress has been made in delineating and understanding the “tidal climate” of the mesosphere and lower thermosphere, that is, tidal variability on seasonal or longer timescales. Short‐term tidal variability on timescales of a few days is much less understood, mainly due to observational constraints imposed by satellite local solar time sampling. This paper presents a new approach to study the “tidal weather” in 16 years of SABER temperatures. Our focus is on the eastward‐propagating nonmigratin…
