A new translation of the inscription on the so called "Tempest Stela" of King Ahmose (1st King of the 18th Dynasty) seems to pre-date his reign 30 to 50 years earlier: "World’s oldest weather report could revise Bronze Age chronology" (Susie Allen and William Harms, UChicago News, 01. April 2014).

The original article from the Journal of Near Eastern Studies is online and free for download: Robert K. Ritner / Nadine Moeller : The Ahmose ‘Tempest Stela’, Thera and Comparative Chronology. - In: JNES 73.1. - 2014. - pp. 1 - 19.

Greetings, Lutz.
