We present a new computational technique for extracting growing weather modes of different frequencies and growth rates from instantaneous six hourly observed atmospheric data. The methodology is applied to examine the changes in the statistics of growing storms and extreme weather events between the mid and late 20th century. The structures of weather modes in different frequency and growth rate bands are determined from the leading (maximum variance) eigenvectors of the associated covariance
