    From NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center: NASA snaps picture of Eastern US in a record-breaking ‘freezer’ NASA’s Terra satellite captured an image of the snow-covered eastern U.S. that looks like the states have been sitting in a freezer. In addition to the snow cover, Arctic and Siberian air masses have settled in over the Eastern U.S. triggering many record low temperatures in many states. On Feb. 19 at 16:40 UTC (11:40 a.m. EST), the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument that flies aboard NASA’s Terra satellite captured a picture of the snowy landscape. The snow cover combined with the frosty...
  • More Arctic Cold to Flow Across Eastern US Through End of February

    Accumeather ^ | 21FEB2015 | Alex Sosnowski
    Additional rounds of frigid air will continue to drill the eastern United States into the end of February, riding on the heels of bursts of record-breaking low temperatures. By way of Siberia, additional waves of cold air will continue to roll into the Eastern states. This cross-polar flow, as it is called, travels thousands of miles across the North Pole, over frozen tundra, seas of ice and/or snow cover. As a result, the frigid air experiences little moderation until it reaches the southern U.S. According to AccuWeather.com Chief Meteorologist Elliot Abrams, "In some cases the cold has been rivaling that...

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Cold weather records continue to fall across West Michigan and more brutal cold is on the way. Friday morning’s low of -13 degrees in Grand Rapids tied the existing record low set in 1966. Hundreds of schools closed due to the extremely cold temperatures with wind chills colder than -20 degrees. Thursday’s high of 7 degrees in Grand Rapids was a new record for the coldest high temperature for the date, and we’re already on pace for this to be one of the coldest February months ever. We’ll briefly warm to the upper 20s on...

    A train of storms will bring round after round of snow from the Upper Midwest to part of the Northeast this weekend into early next week. The biggest storm in the bunch will be the caboose in the train, set to affect the Northeast Sunday night into Monday night.

    Introduction Global Warming (GW) alarmists are in a pickle: no GW, in spite of rising CO2 levels.  True believers are using quasi-religious slogans, like “The End [of the GW pause] is Near” and “Repent [Stop emitting CO2] Before It’s Too Late.” The observed absence of a global-warming trend (often described as “pause” or “hiatus”), beginning around Yr 2000 (or perhaps even earlier) contradicts the results of every IPCC climate model – all of them driven by a steady increase in anthropogenic carbon dioxide; see figure.  This lack of model validation has obvious implications for model-based estimates of future climate. ...

The rate of West Antarctic ice loss has been ominously increasing, and there are fears that if too much goes, the slow and long-term process of ice sheet disintegration could accelerate.

It gained the most fame through Admiral FitzRoy who used a Storm Glass on the voyage in which he and Darwin traveled to the Galápagos Islands. As such, the instrument is sometimes called a 'FitzRoy Storm Glass'.

Peggy Perales of the National Weather Service in Pueblo says winds gusted up to 60 mph as the storm moved in. That also kicked up blinding dust in the region, with the worst of it lasting for about an hour.

But this is the problem; that there isn't enough research done for short-term forecasting.
