    The official start to fall is still seven weeks away, but as of late it feels like it has arrived early. Temperatures for the most part have been in the lower 80s across Mid-Missouri, following a brutal heat wave that impacted Mid-Missouri in July. The cool weather has been welcoming and there are signs that we'll see even cooler weather track into the region.p Thanks to a series of rare cold fronts this summer, temperatures have struggled to climb back to average in Mid-Missouri. That changes as we head into Wednesday, as temperatures will moderate back towards seasonable averages. Average...
  • Death Valley breaks 100-year-old record for hottest month ever in July

    08/04/2017 9:29:25 AM PDT · by rktman · 72 replies ^ | 8/4/2017 | Joe Serna
    There’s hot, and then there’s Death Valley hot. While Southern California and much of the West cooked in July under a pair of heat waves that killed livestock, knocked out power and encouraged wildfires, nowhere was the heat more brutally enduring than in Death Valley. According to the National Weather Service, Death Valley National Park broke its 100-year-old record for the hottest month ever in July, when the average temperature was 107.4 degrees, eclipsing the 1917 record of 107.2 degrees. Though 107 degrees doesn’t sound that bad, keep in mind the average includes nighttime temperatures. The average overnight temperature in...

  • After a near-record 270 days, Mammoth Mountain's snow season is coming to a close

    During one of the longest ski seasons in California’s history, Mammoth Mountain is getting ready to say goodbye to skiers and snowboarders who’ve been relishing their time on the slopes deep into summer. The ski resort in Mammoth Lakes will be open daily for snow sports through Aug. 6. It chalked up a remarkable 270-day season after big winter snowfalls were helped by a late June snowstorm. Squaw Valley Resort overlooking Lake Tahoe in Olympic Valley, Calif., also had a long winter-into-summer run. It closed for the winter season July 15, marking its latest closing date in the resort’s history....

    We all know the truth is not being revealed to the public. For instance, the incident involving the shooting of Representative Scalise and other Republicans is being covered up by the FBI. Another example is the Special Counsel Mueller’s conflict of interest in his connection to James Comey. Now Tom Fitton is calling for the Counsel to be shut down, as Mueller just hired an employee of fired New York federal prosecutor Preet Bharara. Preet was fired by President Trump, as Trump had his own appointees assigned to that office. Also, Bharara used to work for Ex-FBI Director James Comey....

    Daily Caller ^ | June 25, 2017 | Alex Pfeiffer
    President Donald Trump continues to sign legislation, an achievement he deemed “nice” Friday. The bills include an act to improve weather forecasting, a long-term vision for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and reforms for the Department of Veteran Affairs. The three pieces of legislation all had bipartisan support. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Transition Authorization Act of 2017 calls for a $19.5 billion budget for NASA — an increase from $19.3 billion in 2016 — and also asks that NASA create a plan for getting humans “near or on the surface of Mars in the 2030s.” During...

If you tuned on the news this past week you learned this time there were no “tapes” and that airplanes sometimes can’t fly in extreme heat. Nearly 50 flights by American Airlines were canceled, impacting thousands of passengers when temperatures at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor Airport approached 120 degrees. While thousands of airline passengers were being inconvenienced by weather as happens to tens of thousands of flights...
  • France's heatwave reaches peak as pollution spike hits Paris

    Local, the ^ | 21 June 2017
    France's sweltering heatwave is not over yet, and in Paris it's not just the temperatures that are high, with pollution levels peaking in the French capital forcing authorities to take action. Most of France is baking under the sun after national weather agency Meteo France increased the number of departments on alert for heatwaves to 67 (see map below) on Wednesday afternoon. And to make life more difficult, a peak in pollution linked to the heat has hit the French capital. French authorities take heatwaves extremely seriously, and it's little wonder. Back in August 2003, a heatwave killed 15,000 mostly...

    Houston Chronicle ^ | 6-18-2017 | keri blakinger
    The odds of a tropical storm hitting southeast Texas this week are inching slowly upward as swirling winds pick up in the Caribbean. A tropical disturbance sparked by a broad band of low pressure in the northwestern Caribbean now has a 90 percent chance of turning into a tropical storm, according to the National Hurricane Center. If that system hits Houston, it could mean a torrent of rain and possible flooding. But as of now, it's still not clear where the stormy weather will hit. "A lot of the models early on were going towards Florida and or south of...

  • Expect above-average Atlantic hurricane season, U.S. forecasters say

    The Atlantic Ocean could see another above-average hurricane season this year, with 11-17 big storms and as many as nine hurricanes, U.S. forecasters said on Thursday. The expected absence of El Nino, an ocean warming trend that tends to reduce the likelihood of hurricanes, is a major reason for the expected rise in the number of storms. Other factors include above-average sea surface temperatures and weaker vertical wind shear across the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. An average season produces 12 named storms of which six become hurricanes. "The outlook reflects our expectation of a weak or non-existent El...
  • Latest Forecast: Denver Is Under A Winter Storm Warning

    As only CBS4 told you last night, Denver would see a beautiful start to Friday – and we were greeted to a cloudless blue sky as temperatures warmed to a high of 54 degrees. Then the weather began to change as a storm system tracking across the Four Corners region and then over New Mexico began producing a strong upslope flow along the Front Range changing rain over to snow. As a result, the Denver and Boulder areas are under a Winter Storm Warning from 6 p.m. Friday until 6 p.m. Saturday for 4-12 inches of slushy snow. The higher...

    Bill Nye was invited to speak on CNN’s New Day Saturday program for Earth Day, along with May Boeve, the executive director of green action group; and William Happer, a climate change skeptic and physicist at Princeton. Nye was clearly exasperated with Happer’s claims, and annoyed that CNN had invited him. To enthusiastic nods from Boeve, Nye said, “I will say, much as I love the CNN, you’re doing a disservice by having one climate change skeptic and not 97 or 98 scientists or engineers concerned about climate change.” (CNN is hardly the first media organization to give these...

    MIAMI - A weather system in the Atlantic Ocean morphed into Tropical Storm Arlene Thursday becoming the first named storm of the year, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said. Hurricane season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30, but last year two storms formed before the official start of the season. Forecasters say tropical storms are rare in April and Arlene is only the second one observed in the month since weather satellites went into use. The system is expected to dissipate Friday and no coastal watches or warnings are in effect. Arlene is moving at 25 mph with...
  • White Easter: Sweden wakes up to snow and record low temperatures

    Easter Sunday got off to an unusually cold start across Sweden — with three weather records broken as some towns experienced their chilliest April night in decades. Southern Sweden saw unseasonably cold temperatures, with up to 10 cm of snow in northern Skåne, Blekinge, Kronoberg, Halland and Kalmar. In Örebro, the mercury dropped to –14°C, making it the coldest April night since 1944, according to P4 Örebro. In Karlstad, Sweden’s meteorological institute SMHI said temperatures reached –9°C, meaning it was the coldest night of April since 1985. …

    Imagine a dust storm, driven by monsoon downbursts, building near the Maricopa-Pinal county line. There are thousands of Interstate 10 motorists and hundreds of thousands of Phoenix exurb residents who would probably want to know about such a storm before the stinging, blinding wall of sand arrives. But does all of metro Phoenix need to get the alert? Likely not, but the National Weather Service’s Ken Waters told the dozens of attendees at the annual dust-storm workshop in Coolidge last week that that’s exactly what would happen with the existing cellphone warning system in place for dust events. “If I’m...
