    POKROVSK, Ukraine (AP) – Russian and Ukrainian troops engaged in close-quarter combat in an eastern Ukraine city Sunday as Moscow’s soldiers, supported by intense shelling, attempted to gain strategic footholds for conquering the region in the face of fierce Ukrainian resistance. Ukrainian regional officials reported Russian forces “storming” Sievierodonetsk after trying unsuccessfully to encircle the city. The fighting knocked out power and cellphone service, and a humanitarian relief centre could not operate because of the danger, the mayor said.

    A massive dust storm originating from the Sahara Desert in Africa has covered parts of Western and Central Europe this week. Strong winds from Storm Celia whipped up sand from the northwest coast of Africa and blanketed much of Portugal, Spain, and France, transforming skies into eerie shades of blood orange, worsening air quality, and leaving a layer of dust on everything. On Tuesday, the European Environment Agency said dust concentrations in Spain were five times over their recommended limit for air quality. “Air quality is recognized as being vital to human health as high concentrations of dust can have...

The warning is in effect from 3 p.m. Wednesday to 6 p.m. Thursday for most of the region, according to the weather service’s Dallas-Fort Worth office. Storm warnings are issued when the weather service highly expects significant weather such as snow, ice, sleet or a combination of those elements. Dangerous wind chills of -5 to 15 degrees are possible Friday through Saturday, the weather service said. Low temperatures will be in the teens, and a warmup is not...

    A “significant storm” and “strong cold front” could hit the US Northeast and Midwest next week — potentially wreaking havoc on Thanksgiving travel plans, forecasters warn. The large-scale weather pattern is expected to start over the weekend and extend into early next week, according to the National Weather Service’s prediction center. The full extent and path of the storm hasn’t yet been nailed down, but forecasters are — at the very least — predicting a drop in temperatures and strong winds for Monday and Tuesday.

The flare - officially known as a coronal mass ejection (CME) - was observed on Saturday on the side of the sun directly facing our planet and comes as we enter a period of increased solar activity. An alert was published by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) which warned the geomagnetic storm could cause power grid fluctuations with voltage alarms at higher latitudes, where the Earth is more...

    Update (1158ET): Nicholas intensified into a Category 1 hurricane early this morning before making landfall southwest of Galveston, Texas. The storm has been downgraded to a tropical storm with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph as it slowly traverses the Greater Houston area.

Greg Abbott said first responders are in the Houston area and along the coast. Meteorologist Kent Prochazka of the National Weather Service told AP News that Nicholas had downed trees. In the southeast part of...

Taiwan’s Central Weather Bureau said Typhoon Chanthu is north of the Philippines Friday as it closes in on Taiwan and the Chinese coast. In the path of the storm are major containerized ports and factories. The intensity of the storm is a significant concern. The storm is rated as a category four typhoon, one level below a super typhoon, with maximum sustained winds...
  • Tropical Disturbance In Gulf Expected To Stay South Of Louisiana, But Heavy Rain Possible (Going Across Florida)p

    A tropical disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico is expected to stay south of Louisiana and head for Florida, hurricane forecasters said Monday. However, it could still bring rain to Louisiana and the Gulf Coast toward the middle of the week. The heaviest rain is possible south of Interstate 10, according to the National Weather Service in Slidell. Forecasters said the additional rain would be problematic because much of southeast Louisiana is still soaked from Hurricane Ida, which hit as a Category 4 storm a week ago. Any more rain could lead to flash flooding and slow down cleanup and...
