Slow-moving mega-storms are going to be our new normal

Moving at a pace of 1 mph, Hurricane Dorian was slower than an adult’s walking pace⁠—and because of scientific phenomena caused by these slow mega-storms, hurricanes that are economically devastating could over time become our new normal.

The impact of burning fossil fuels on today's extreme weather

A new study warns that the continued burning of fossil fuels will likely lead to even more extreme summers than that of 2018 because of its impact on the jet stream.

Record-breaking heat marches to the beat of climate change

The summer of temperature extremes just keeps going, with record heat waves this month on all four continents that occupy the non-tropical Northern Hemisphere where it is now summer.

Fluctuating jet stream may be causing extreme weather events

A new study suggests that the polar jet stream has been fluctuating more than normal as it passes over parts of the Northern Hemisphere, and that's affecting weather in Europe and North America.

Buckle up — climate change to increase severe aircraft turbulence

Imagine turbulence so severe that unbuckled passengers and crew are catapulted out of their seats and tossed about the airline cabin. Actually, climate change will make this twice or even three times more likely in the near future, say researchers.

Extreme cold weather — blame climate change effects on jet stream

Scientists from both sides of the aisle now agree for the first time that climate change may be intensifying the effects of the jet stream, bringing extremes of cold winter weather to the U.S. and U.K.

Many parts of England record wettest January since records began

Early figures have suggested several parts of England and Wales have experienced its wettest January since records began over 100 years ago.

Single 'stuck' weather pattern affects Russia, Pakistan

Information from meteorologists indicates a “block” of the northern hemisphere jet stream has created destructive weather patterns over both Russia and Pakistan. This is causing the murderous drought in Russia and the unprecedented floods in Pakistan.

Longer days, thanks to a little boy

During an El Niño (the little boy), an irregularly returning climate disturbance in the Pacific and Indian Oceans, the days become longer, up to a whopping microsecond longer. It takes some time, however.
