Friday finishes our fabulous four-day span. If you can extend your weekend into long one, you have my endorsement.

The moderate, G2 geomagnetic storm was caused by a solar eruption from sunspot Region 2403.

Parts of the West may see up to a sixfold increase in the potential for very large fires.

We revisit the meteorological conditions that made Katrina as damaging and destructive as it was.

Erika has stayed farther south than originally predicted, throwing a huge amount of uncertainty into the future of the tropical storm.

Over six inches of rain has fallen on the island of Dominica in the Lesser Antilles in the past six hours.

Summer comes slithering back in and is in full form by the weekend.
