The adage "Everyone complains about the weather but nobody does anything about it," may one day be obsolete if researchers at the University of Central Florida's College of Optics & Photonics and the University of Arizona further develop a new technique to aim a high-energy laser beam into clouds to make it rain or trigger lightning.
Swirling, stormy clouds may be ever-present on cool celestial orbs called brown dwarfs. New observations from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope suggest that most brown dwarfs are roiling with one or more planet-size storms akin to Jupiter's "Great Red Spot."
Ever been planning a party and wished that you could open up some extra space by eliminating a few unnecessary walls? Ever wished you could swivel your home to avoid the late afternoon heat that pours through South-facing windows?
The US East Coast is set for a big rise in heat waves and storms, a study using the world's fastest supercomputer has shown.
NASA's Curiosity rover has been gathering a wealth of information about winds and natural radiation on Mars, spotting whirlwinds and changes in air pressure.
Decades of extreme weather first weakened the Mayan culture and then killed off much of the population.
Preliminary weather reports from the Curiosity rover’s Remote Environment Monitoring Station (REMS) are showing some surprisingly mild temperatures during the day.
German scientists say they've confirmed something long suspected: that the weather in some regions of Earth is influenced by the sun's 11-year cycle of activity.
According to NOAA scientists, the average temperature for the contiguous US last month was 77.6°F - 3.3°F above the 20th century average.
Climate change is set to trigger more extreme weather events around the world, an international team of scientists claims.
Australian scientists are employing GPS to make weather forecasting more accurate, with a new type of temperature profile observation.
Climate scientists have in the past been cautious about suggesting that extreme weather can be linked to climate change. But a new report from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) argues just that.
Iran says it's launched an observation satellite, claiming it will be used to collect weather data.
Day-to-day weather conditions have become more erratic in the past generation, say Princeton University researchers, with significant fluctuations in sunshine and rainfall affecting more than a third of the planet.
Scientists say they've found the first clear evidence of the way increases in air pollution are affecting climate and weather - and the results don't look good.
British scientists say they've established a link between the sun's 11-year cycle and cold winters in Northern Europe and parts of America.
While Venus's weather at ground level is pretty boring - a steady 800 degrees Farenheit and heavy sulfuric acid clouds - it all gets a bit more interesting further up, say NASA scientists.
Google's added a new layer to its Google Maps application, displaying current temperatures and conditions around the globe.
The contrails from World War II bombers were enough to change the English weather, leaving Brits shivering with cold as well as, possibly, fear.
As America prepares itself for what is predicted to be an active hurricane season, the American Geophysical Union (AGU) is calling on Congress to fund weather satellites.
