Weather forecasters may be looking in the wrong place when working to issue tornado warnings, new research has demonstrated.
Atmospheric scientists have documented a rare firenado, finding a number of factors that combined at just the right time and place to catalyze the deadly Carr Fire in Northern California. These observations may help forecasters and scientists identify -- and potentially warn - for future destructive fire-generated vortices.
A new study finds that over the past four decades, tornado frequency has increased over a large swath of the Midwest and Southeast and decreased in portions of the central and southern Great Plains, a region traditionally associated with Tornado Alley.
Experiencing extreme weather is not enough to convince climate change skeptics than humans are damaging the environment, a new study shows.
Researchers have obtained data from recent next-generation satellites in a numerical weather-prediction model used to provide guidance for tornadic thunderstorm forecasting.
