The Hubble Space Telescope has spotted clouds and storms on the solar system's ice giants.
We can't make it rain. But you are already helping if you don't use more water than you need. And you can talk to your parents about the planet getting warmer, because the heat makes drought worse.
An atmospheric scientist explains why water can do some strange-looking things at very cold temperatures, and what's different about snowfalls on Mars.
Life-threatening cold temperatures in the central US are caused by changes in wind circulation in the Arctic that bring cold air south. Climate change could make these events more frequent.
The number of people dying due to climate-led changes in the environment are increasing and the poorest populations remain the hardest hit.
Much of Australia is sweltering due to a high pressure system parked over the Tasman Sea – and there's no sign it's moving any time soon.
At a very simple level, "weather" refers to day-to-day conditions. "Climate" describes the average over many years.
2018 was Australia’s third warmest year on record, as the NSW drought dragged into another year.
Twice every day the Bureau of Meteorology sends out the official weather forecasts for towns and cities across Australia. Here's how we work out what to say in them.
Bushfires across Queensland are fanned by high winds pushed north by a strong low in NSW.
The forecast arrival of El Niño may mean the east coast of Australia will experience an exceptionally hot and dry summer, but does this mean there will be fewer mosquitoes buzzing about?

Donald Trump claims his administration has carried out an "all-out effort" in preparing for the effects of climate change. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The future climate that scientists predict for the middle of the United States is one that will foster more hail events with bigger hailstones.
Clouds formed by rising warm air currents are called 'convection clouds'. Because of all the rising air coming up, these clouds can be bumpy on top, sometimes looking like cotton wool or cauliflower.
How do experts know when and where the next big hurricane is going to hit? A look at the complicated science of forecasting.
Ants have many tricks to deal with rain – like holding their breath, blocking nest entrances or drinking excess water and releasing it elsewhere by 'communal peeing.' But can they see rain coming?
A new outlook from the Bureau of Meteorology forecasts a dry, warm spring – and not the sustained rain we need.
