Thursday morning forecastLows will range from the single digits above and below zero in northern New England to the low and middle 20s in the Mid-Atlantic. More than 20 locations will be within three degrees of a daily record low. Below are the current record lows to beat Thursday morning for a few cities in the Northeast:

Thursday afternoon and Friday forecast: Somewhat warmer weather starts to arrive in the East Thursday afternoon, and by Friday temperatures should be above average by a few degrees in the Northeast.

Friday's highs will reach into the 50s in Boston and New York City. Farther south, temperatures may top out in the 60s in Philadelphia and Washington.

Unfortunately, this return to milder temperatures will likely be accompanied by rain and cloud cover, particularly during the second half of the day.

Extreme 'Grey Swan' Hurricanes in Tampa Bay: a Potential Future Catastrophe

By Dr. Jeff Masters
July 26, 2016

Hurricanes more extreme than any observed in recorded history can occur in a warming climate, and can be anticipated by combining physical knowledge with historical data. The risk of such “grey swan” hurricanes for Tampa, Florida may increase by up to a factor of fourteen by the end of the century, thanks to our changing climate.

Hottest Reliably Measured Air Temperatures on Earth

By Christopher C. Burt
July 22, 2016

As Jeff Masters mentioned in his recent blog, a temperature of 54.0°C (129.2°F) was observed at Mitribah, Kuwait on July 21st. According to the Kuwait Meteorological Department this was the hottest temperature ever measured in the country (a reading of 54.4°C/129.9°F observed at the same site on July 16, 2010 has been disallowed as a result of a faulty sensor). The 54.0°C reading also is a new record for Asia and ties a similar reading at Death Valley (on June 30, 2013) as the hottest reliably measured temperature on Earth. The key word here is ‘reliably’. Many hotter temperatures have been reported from around the world in years past. However, all of these have credibility issues. In that vein I am going to revisit a blog I first posted on WU in October 2010 listing all the various claims to temperature readings at or above 54°C (129.2°F). In the years since I made that post I’ve learned more about some of these claims and have thus updated my entries and ‘validity’ scores as a result.

Why the Arrest of a Science-Loving 14-year-old Matters

By Shaun Tanner

By now, many of you have heard or read about the arrest of Ahmed Mohamed, a 14-year-old high school student from Irving, Texas. Ahmed was arrested because school officials called the police after he showed one of his teachers his homemade clock. Mistaken for a bomb, Ahmed was taken into custody, interrogated, shamed, suspended (still on suspension today, Wednesday), and reprimanded. All of this after it has been found that the "device" he brought to school was indeed, a homemade clock.
