We've got another heat wave on the way.

Sweaty! But it’s probably quiet on other weather fronts.

There's far more danger associated with a lightning strike than just a direct hit.

We're about to add high heat to the high humidity.

The storm resembled something you'd expect to see in Tornado Alley, not sweeping across the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Alaska has seen its warmest summer on record, and every aspect of the state's environment is impacted, from the southeastern temperate forests to the ecosystems of the Bering Sea.

Our small break in high heat continues today, but it’ll feel like it’s near 100 by Sunday.

Plan on minimal to no game disruptions.

Any raindrops should continue to be isolated in nature.

A few severe thunderstorms will move across the area through early evening.

July brought extreme heat to Europe, and massive wildfires to the Arctic, including Alaska, Siberia and even Greenland, as well as a record and sudden melt event to the Greenland Ice Sheet.

The good news is we are halfway through August, bad news is we are only halfway through August — significant humidity is unrelenting for the next five days.

If we miss 90 on Thursday, it may be only a brief break as summer prepares to crank up again.

Twin tornadoes and astoundingly large hail pummeled the Plains on Aug. 13.

West of the Potomac River, a thunderstorm provided for a natural fireworks show. East of there, it was just a downpour. Here's what happened.

A new study challenges the hypothesis that Arctic sea ice loss is driving a trend toward colder, snowier winters in the U.S. and parts of Asia.

Some sort of shower or storm risk each day through the weekend, but any storms look to be isolated to scattered, rather than widespread.

A poorly timed shower or storm could cause a delay, but we should be able to get the game in, even if there's an interruption.

Clouds helped subdue the widespread storm threat today.
