Last year was downright biblical when it came to weather and climate disasters — particularly in the United States

I'm a bit late to this story, but it's significant enough that I didn't want to let it pass by without posting something about it.

While parts of the U.S. are wet and frigid, the Southwest is bone dry and still waiting for winter to arrive

A wide area around the Four Corners region of the U.S. Southwest is now in severe drought — and the three-month outlook is grim While downtown Boston streets were flooding and then freezing as a result of the powerful bomb cyclone that pummeled the U.S.

On the very day the bomb cyclone exploded, we learned that 2017 was one of the very warmest on record

One verdict on global warming in 2017 is in: Warmest year with no temperature boost from El Niño, and second warmest overall Today brought another lesson about the difference between weather and climate.

The view from space as the so-called 'bomb cyclone' exploded into a dangerous winter storm

Last night, my daughter called me from New York City to ask worriedly about the so-called bomb cyclone that was threatening the northeastern United States.

Curiously aligned cloud formations stream across the Atlantic as Arctic air blows above warm ocean waters

Baby, it's cold outside! If you live pretty much anywhere in Canada, or in the United States east of the Rockies, that wonderful song from the 1940s pretty much sums up the conditions as 2017 draws to a close. And when revelers watch the ball drop in New York City's Times Square on New Years Eve, they will have to endure forecast temperatures of 10°F – with a wind chill of -5°F.

Right before Christmas, a gargantuan black fissure opened on the Sun. It was shaped like a question mark.

It doesn't really take much imagination to see the dark question mark forming and dissipating across most of the Sun's surface in the animation above.

Say hi to the GOES-East satellite—already a 'game changer' for tracking threats like wildfires and extreme weather

A brand spanking new advanced U.S. satellite is now fully operational and monitoring weather, wildfires, lightning and other phenomena.

Watch California's Thomas Fire metastasize into a monster likely made more ferocious by climate change

An animation of satellite imagery offers a revealing perspective on the day-by-day growth of the Thomas Fire "Firefighters achieved huge successes yesterday during a BIG firefight to hold their line & SAVED hundreds of homes in Montecito." That was the news this morning about the horrific Thomas Fire burning in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, as described by the Public Information Officer of the Ventura County Fire Department.

A major federal report finds that the speed of Arctic warming is unprecedented in 2,000 years

The peer-reviewed report involving 85 scientists finds that the Arctic environmental system has reached a "new normal" It's a common refrain doubters of human-caused global warming: Temperatures now are no higher than they were during the Medieval Warm Period from about 800 to 1400 AD.

This is among the most appalling satellite images of a wildfire that I've ever seen

The obscuring smoke from the Thomas Fire — now 70 percent as large as L.A. — smothers a large swath of SoCal's coast.

An animation of nighttime satellite images shows the start and breathtakingly rapid spread of the first SoCal wildfires

A second animation shows the giant smoke plume from the Thomas Fire illuminated by this week's supermoon as it streams over the Pacific Carl Engelking, Discover's online editor, has put together a gallery of scarily dramatic images of the SoCal wildfires as seen from space.

Smoke billowing from rampaging California wildfires streams across ~1,000 miles of the Pacific Ocean

As I'm writing this post on Thursday night, tens of thousands of homes in Southern California are threatened by raging wildfires.

Satellite imagery shows just how bad the loss of Arctic sea ice has been off Alaska and eastern Siberia

Where sea ice should already be present, there are just vast swaths of open water. The cause: storminess and massive inflows of warmth.

Move over record-setting warmth: A brutal blast of winter misery straight out of the Arctic appears to be on its way

But up in the Arctic, the ironic forecast is for unusual warmth. What's up with this weird pattern of a warm Arctic with cold continents?

A literally breathtaking view of Earth, as filmed by NASA astronaut Randy Bresnik during a spacewalk

If you know any flat-earth types, you might share this with them... Sometimes on a #spacewalk, you just have to take a moment to enjoy the beauty of our planet Earth.

Satellites watch as Bali's Mount Agung volcano propels ash and gas into the atmosphere, threatening climate cooling

With magma boiling at its peak and swelling its body from within, Mount Agung in Bali, Indonesia has awakened from more than a half century of slumber.

Photo feature: a lenticularly gorgeous sunset along the Front Range of Colorado

The cloud formations in the photograph above, and those to follow, may look otherworldly, and maybe even a bit ominous.

A new weather satellite roars into orbit, promising faster and better forecasts of extreme weather like hurricanes

The NOAA-20 satellite was to be the first of four, but the Trump Administration has sought to delay and massively cut the program In the early morning hours of Saturday, Nov.

The heat goes on, and on: This year will likely wind up as one of the three warmest on record

With a month and a half to go until year's end, it's looking like 2017 will go down in the books as the warmest on record – that is, among years that received no temperature boost from El Niño.

She's back! As a giant blob of cold water arises from the depths, La Niña takes over the equatorial Pacific

Will La Niña help bring a warmer or colder winter to your neck of the woods? And will it be wetter or drier?
