The El Niños are coming. A new study has found that the ocean is warming steadily, establishing conditions for rushes of harmful and nutrient-starved waters in the Pacific Ocean in the near-future.
If you're a tea connoisseur you may have noticed that sometimes your favorite brew just doesn't taste like it should. Now researchers are arguing that this may be because shifting rain patterns can actually affect the chemicals in tea that are responsible for flavor and even its health benefits.
As humans continue to burn fossil fuels and pump greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, the planet is progressively warming and having a discernible impact on some of the world's weather, particularly to heat waves across the globe.
September is a month best characterized by last minute barbeques, beach runs, sun tan lotion, and back to school shopping. The last thing you'd expect is having to break out the snow shovel, but on Thursday some South Dakota residents had to do just that, with one of the state's earliest snow falls ever.
Hurricane Marie has finally begun to spin down, weakening from hurricane status to a tropical storm this Thursday morning. Interestingly, NASA and NOAA satellites show that Marie is a fighter, still producing new rising air and thunderstorms to keep it spinning.
Severe flooding crashed through Nepal and India within the past few days, killing more than 160 people and destroying thousands-upon-thousands of homes. More than 130 people are still missing, according to international press. Experts warn this kind of event is not uncommon, and may even be increasing in frequency.
Trapped atmospheric waves may be the overlooked explanation for the recent weather extremes plaguing the United States recently, according to a new study.
Earlier this week, NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope picked up a flash of high-energy gamma radiation from what may seem like an unlikely source, the Earth. This radiation, traditionally seen emitting from powerful neutron stars and supernovas, was seen in a temporary flash at the center of Hurricane Julio as it continues to make its way towards the Hawaiian Islands - a testament to the power of the right storm conditions.
Experts have found new evidence that supports the theory that the intensity of tornadoes in the United States will continue to heighten as climate patterns around the globe change. Twisters will be more likely to set down in the same place in the same day, recreating a scenario disturbingly similar to Hollywood's latest disaster flick.
Have you ever witnessed the birth of a tropical storm? NASA's Teraa satellite happened to be passing over the Central Pacific Ocean just in time to witness Tropical Storm Wali form just southeast of Hawaii's Big Island.
Whether it's because of human influence, climate change, or something else entirely, it is undeniable that weather conditions across the globe are changing. In light of this, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has recently called to update the definition of "normal" weather.
Two deaths and 21 injuries resulted from a pair of lightning strikes just this weekend, reminding us how dangerous thunder storms can be. But just how much do we actually know about lightning? Nature World News drags these deadly flashes of electricity into the spotlight.
The NASA/NOAA GOES Project has recently released two stunning images of water vapor patterns moving over the Atlantic and eastern Pacific oceans. This project, the agency claims, will help make forecast and early-warning systems even more accurate, while simultaneously providing more data to observe changing extreme weather patterns.
In trying to explain for recent prolonged bouts of unseasonal and extreme weather patterns, researchers have found that changes in atmospheric wind patterns are causing certain regions to become more vulnerable to extreme conditions.
