Avalanches can occur more often as winter turns to spring. Join us to hear all about snow slides from the experts. Learn how to spot an avalanche-prone area, what weather increases avalanche risks, and what to do in the event of an avalanche.
Living on Penang Island, Graeme Guy witnessed frequent tropical storms and waterspouts emanating from local weather conditions, especially those building up over mainland Malaysia. Using a specific photographic protocol and tracking lightning strikes from a website, he captured stunning images of electrical storms, showcasing the dramatic natural beauty of the region.
56.7% — The probability of a hurricane’s maximum intensification rate in a 24-hour window being 20 knots (23 miles per hour) or greater for the years 2001–20—an increase from 42.3% for the years 1971–90.
~8,000 years ago — The melting of a Canadian ice sheet appears to have triggered a major change in Earth’s climate, according to a study in Quaternary Science Advances.
Kayla Hudson, a recent meteorology graduate of Jackson State University, on opportunities she pursued inside and outside of school that she believed would be beneficial in securing a job. For more, listen to the Clear Skies Ahead podcast, with new episodes released every month.

Keith Seitter spoke with Bob Russell, an experienced meteorologist turned author, about his latest action-packed novel, “Thor’s Apprentice”. The story explores the concept of on demand weather manipulation in our lifetime. While the book is fiction, the idea of controlling weather has captivated minds for centuries, and it may not be as far from reality as you might think.
1876—The year of the first recorded storm on Saturn, which new research published in Science Advances has found still lingers in the planet’s atmosphere almost 150 years later.
For years, I've been keeping a close eye on representations of snowflakes, always thrilled when I spot the scientifically accurate six-sided ones but cringing when I see four- or eight-sided renditions. Although I usually keep this to myself, there was that one memorable craft show encounter where I had to politely decline a beautiful necklace featuring an eight-sided snowflake pendant, standing my ground for scientific accuracy.
