A front that passed today brought cold-air reinforcements.

Tornadoes are shifting toward a region where they are particularly dangerous due to higher populations, more trees and weaker dwellings.

The American Meteorological Society took issue both with Trump’s statement about the motivations of climate scientists, and his reluctance to accept their conclusions.

Important people resisted stronger codes, betting that a superstrong storm wasn’t going to come along. They lost the bet.

The seeds I surveyed were nearly unanimous in indicating there will be lots of snow. But beware, their forecasting track record isn't great.

Fall is finally hitting its stride, with plenty of sun over the next few days, and some cool breezes too.

It will get pretty cool during the second half.

A gusty breeze kicks up on Wednesday as well.

The Llano River rose to 39.91 feet, the highest level in 83 years.

Some spots have seen their earliest cold and/or snow on record. Some of this cold is headed east.

The storm was a weirdo, meandering over the Atlantic for 19 days in many different forms, before crashing into the Iberian Peninsula.

It's a bit muggy until the cold front passes.

More than 13 million people are under a red flag warning for extreme fire weather.

Michael joined a cold front, which helped rapidly intensify its winds over southeastern Virginia, leaving half a million people in the dark.

Like Andrew, Michael intensified right up through landfall and its winds unleashed tornado-like damage along a narrow path.

It is up to 17 degrees hotter than the coolest areas inside the District.

Today is the warmest day of the week and likely the only one warmer than normal.

Monday will be warmer, but also wetter, as shower chances persist for much of the day.
