    A storm will strengthen rapidly and bring a dose of drenching rain, high winds and even some high-elevation snow to the northeastern United States into Thursday. The latest indications are the storm will strengthen at a fast enough pace into Thursday to be classified as a bomb cyclone. The barometric pressure has to fall at least 24 millibars, or 0.71 of an inch of Mercury, in 24 hours for the bomb cyclone criteria to be met.

    Areas of the northern Rocky Mountains looked more like mid-winter rather than early fall on Sunday as a snowstorm dumped record amounts of wind-driven snow that caused hazardous travel conditions and scattered power outages. Winter storm warnings were posted for parts of western Montana, northern Idaho and northeast Washington. Snow also was forecast for areas in Wyoming, Utah, Oregon, Nevada and California. The brunt of the storm hit Montana where up to 2 feet (61 centimeters) of snow fell Saturday in the mountains and a record 14 inches (35.5 centimeters) fell in Great Falls with snow still falling Sunday. Montana...

    As the day of “Storm Area 51” arrived, a motley group of about 100 “alien-chasers” converged on the back gate of the secret site early Friday, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. At least two people were reportedly detained by local sheriff's deputies. “Storm Area 51” became a viral phenomenon after a joke Facebook post in July urged people to crash the military base “to see them aliens.” Conspiracy theories surrounding extraterrestrials have long swirled around Area 51. Originally scheduled for 3 a.m. PDT Friday, “Storm Area 51” garnered global attention, as well as security concerns. The Review-Journal reported that...

    Gregory Beck was on his way to his St. Louis home in his wheelchair when tornado sirens sounded. Beck lost both of his legs last year and is legally blind, according to CNN affiliate KMOV4. It would normally take him 25 minutes to get back home from the supermarket, and he would need to stop as many as 10 times to rest. "Everyone kept telling me the storm is coming and you need to hurry up and get home," Beck told the station. While other drivers honked and yelled at Beck as he tried to cross the street Tuesday and...

    California is being targeted by a monster El Niño Storm that will bring seven days of torrential rain, up to three feet of mountain snow, and may cause an Oroville Dam overflow. A period of strengthening trade winds that seemed set to end this year’s El Niño that brought a record 188 percent of average snow pack to California’s Sierra Mountains, reversed in mid-April to surge a bloom of heated water along the Equatorial Pacific and reawaken a late season El Niño that has a 70 probability of lasting through the summer.

    It’s a pollen-pocalypse. Stunning aerial photos show a haze of pollen so thick over Durham, North Carolina, it turned the sky yellow this week — as doctors in the region have reported an uptick in patients complaining about their allergy symptoms. “In April in North Carolina we have an overlap for a couple weeks where we have pretty high counts of tree and then grass also gets started,” Heather Gutekunst, a doctor with Allergy Partners of Raleigh, told ABC 11. “So when we see that, if you are allergic to both, we tend to see an escalation in symptoms.”

    Oh, my God. Winter storm Jayden is following close on the heals of the vast destruction of Winter Storm Indra (does anyone remember Indra?). What will it take for the tabloid Weather Channel to give us a break? It is becoming comical how they desperately grasp at anything in their quest for ratings. My advice to the producers: Give it a rest!!! You are looking more foolish every day.

    . One-minute twitter video shows severe beating of single white young girl by five urban yutes in public housing. She is punched directly in the face, collapsing on the ground in pain. She gets up again and walks away, as the violent confrontation at first appears over. A large male tackles her from behind, though, permitting the angry crowd to catches up. They take turns working her over, viciously kicking the girl on the ground as she curls into a protective ball. (Strong language warning)

And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — NASA expects to soon end efforts to contact the Opportunity Mars rover, silent for more than four months after a major dust storm, but will continue to listen for signals from the spacecraft for months to come. Opportunity, which has been on Mars since January 2004, last contacted Earth June 10. A powerful globe-spanning dust storm blocked the sun and deprived the rover of solar power, putting it into a low-power mode. On Sept. 11, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory said that the optical depth, a measure of the haziness of Martian skies, had dropped to a level...
