Have you seen the weather? It is so much weather right now, I'm considering staying home instead of dealing with all this weather. All I know is that NO ONE can drive in this weather. People from my state are the worst at driving, especially when weather comes. It's like they've never seen weather before!
There's only one thing better than hearing a pleasant weekend weather forecast, and that is hearing a pleasant weekend weather forecast with a dog on screen. Josh Judge, weatherperson for news channel WMUR-9 out of Manchester, New Hampshire was giving a routine weather report recently when a large, floofy dog casually walked behind him. "So it's not the dog days of summer just yet," joked Judge, as the dog strolled off camera and he turned back to the weather report. The dog's name was later revealed to be Bella and she is a very good girl. Hopefully, more news stations will integrate canine correspondents into their weather reports.
Summer may be kicking off in the steamy United States, but Down Under, residents are in the middle of winter. And that includes the people searching for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. The crews and vessels combing the Indian Ocean for wreckage from the missing plane have encountered some serious bad weather in the form of rough seas and strong winds, according to an operational update released Wednesday by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, the agency leading the international hunt. The conditions have been so bad that the search's finish date, once scheduled for June, will likely be pushed back to August -- or later. "Recent poor weather conditions have severely impacted search operations; the last four weeks saw no search operations undertaken," the bureau said in its most recent update.
Some journalists noted the irony of one weather satellite watching a massive storm heading toward another, more advanced weather satellite that has been touted as a game changer in the weather community. Mashable noted: "Lying directly in the path of fearsome Hurricane Matthew ... is America's next-generation, $1.2 billion weather satellite." The Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang: "GOES-R, our next-gen weather satellite, is delayed by a hurricane.
