  • Scientists conclude that global warming never went on 'hiatus'

    Scientists conclude that global warming never went on 'hiatus'
    A fresh look at the way sea temperatures are measured has led government scientists to make a surprising claim: The puzzling apparent hiatus in global surface warming never really happened. In a study published Thursday in the prestigious journal...

     Hansen: If sea lions were ugly would we be so concerned?
    It's no secret that sea lions are the chocolate Labradors of the sea. That's why people love them — their big, doleful eyes, their affinity for water, their uncanny ability to bark. So when the Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach throws...
  • New fed data shows no stopping or slowing of global warming

    Global warming has not stopped or even slowed in the past 18 years, according to a new federal study that rebuts doubters who've claimed that that heating trends have paused. Scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration readjusted...

    Rare deep-sea oarfish found dead on Catalina Island beach

  • Ready or not, here comes the hurricane season

    Ready or not, here comes the hurricane season

  • Model should sharpen tropical forecasts

    Model should sharpen tropical forecasts
    Tropical forecasts should be significantly improved this hurricane season thanks specifically to one model. Affectionately called HWRF (pronounced, H-WERF), it's expected to make better use of aircraft reconnaissance data, said Kathryn Sullivan,...
  • NOAA predicts slow hurricane season; is intensity era over?

    NOAA predicts slow hurricane season; is intensity era over?
    Joining other weather teams, government forecasters on Wednesday called for a slower-than-normal hurricane season, adding fuel to the debate over whether the 20-year era of tropical intensity is finally drawing to an end. The National Oceanic and...
  • El Niņo's latest trick: Another calmer hurricane season expected

    El Niño's latest trick: Another calmer hurricane season expected
    When it comes to disasters, El Niņo giveth and El Niņo taketh away. The same developing El Niņo that may have helped unleash massive, deadly floods on Oklahoma and Texas this week — and the same El Niņo that could summon rains to drought-...
  • Hampton Roads likely to see another sparse hurricane season, feds predict

    Hampton Roads likely to see another sparse hurricane season, feds predict
    The Atlantic hurricane season might have been fast out of the gate this year, but it's looking to rack up fewer storms than normal for the rest of it, federal forecasters say. It's the second year in a row that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric...
  • NOAA predicts below-normal hurricane season, but urges caution

    NOAA predicts below-normal hurricane season, but urges caution
    U.S. government forecasters are predicting at least half a dozen tropical cyclones will form in the Atlantic this year, though it's possible El Niņo will prevent any of them from becoming major hurricanes. Six to 11 tropical storms are expected under...

    El Niño strengthens. Hope for serious drought relief?
    El Niņo conditions in the Pacific Ocean that were first identified in March are strengthening, federal scientists said Thursday, renewing hope that the next winter could be a long-awaited wet one for California. The weather phenomenon intensified from...
