Back to the 80s. But are warm temps here to stay?May 8, 2014 12:00 AM
A 35-degree wind chill Tuesday morning. A mid-80s forecast today.

Tornado seasons lately have been boom or bustApr 30, 2014 12:00 AM

Artificial cooling tricky topic for climate panelApr 13, 2014 12:00 AM
It’s Plan B in the fight against climate change: cooling the planet by sucking heat-trapping CO2 from the air or reflecting sunlight back into space. Called geoengineering, it’s considered mad science by opponents. Supporters say it would be foolish to ignore it.

The enthusiasm to hear bad weather news was so great at Saturday's Tornado and Severe Storms seminar, an overflow crowd had to watch a televised version of WGN Chief Meteorologist Tom Skilling’s presentation outside Ramsey Auditorium.

Spring forecast: Cool in North, still dry in WestMar 20, 2014 12:00 AM
The first day of spring? Some people in Maine were shoveling 6 inches of new snow. And in Michigan, college students couldn’t even burn a snowman. Ok, so it was a fake snowman. But it was real snow that got in the way. For many Americans, it feels like winter is hanging on like a bad cold.

“Come, gentle Spring! Ethereal mildness, come,” poet James Thompson of Scotland wrote in 1728. But the kilt-friendly, Scottish winter of 1727-28 was nothing compared to our long-underwear-required suburban winter of discontent in 2013-14.

Walloped again: Another storm hits much of USMar 3, 2014 12:00 AM
On the latest snow day in a winter full of them, residents of parts of the South, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast were coping with several inches of snow on top of a layer of slush. With accumulations of 4-to-6 inches in Washington, Monday’s storm would have been the largest in the nation’s capital in all of last year. But in the seemingly endless winter of 2013-2014, it came 2 ½ weeks after a much bigger storm, and the region settled into a familiar routine of hunkering down.
