When the weather gets wild, your internet connection can suffer. But other users are as much to blame as the wind and rain
'Thirsty air' can create rapid and devastating drought – new research offers hope we might be able to see it coming in advance.
Federal weather scientists are pushing to make the US more 'weather-ready,' which could mean prepping for fires, flooding or storms depending on where you live. The common factor: thinking ahead.
Social inequalities worsen storm damage and challenge disaster recovery, increasing class divides over time.
This summer is likely to be hot and dry, but that's more down to climate change than miserable spring.

Weather on other planets and moons can be much more extreme than on Earth.
The US is shifting to a new set of climate 'normals' – data sets averaged over the past 30 years. But normal is a relative concept in a time of climate change.
While land tornadoes are associated with huge supercell thunderstorms, waterspouts can form during smaller storms or even just showers or the presence of the right kind of clouds.
It has only been in the past century that weather prediction on Earth has advanced enough to work two weeks in advance. Predicting space weather, however, is only reliable an hour in advance.
Barometric pressure headaches are often the result of pressure changes in our sinuses.
Yes, some of this is normal seasonal transition. But at least a portion of it is due to a particularly vigorous cold front that swept across southeast Australia over the weekend.
