Coast-to-coast storm could bring severe weather, blizzard to US

The FOX Forecast Center is closely watching a developing storm that is expected to bring nasty weather to a large swath of the U.S. next week. It begins with heavy snow in the mountainous West. From there, tornadic storms and a possible blizzard are forecast as the storm moves east.

First snow of season could soon fall in some Northeast cities

The holiday season evokes images of dashing through the snow for many in the Northeast, but it’s been a relatively snow-free season thus far. That could change this weekend with a fast-moving system that is expected to bring accumulating snow to the region.

Weather Image of the Day: Sunny shores

FOX Weather's Brandy Campbell captured this sunrise over Daytona Beach Shores, Florida, this week. She was in the coastal town, which was hit hard by Hurricane Nicole in November, covering the discovery of a shipwreck that was unearthed by all the beach erosion that happened during the storm.

Mauna Loa lava has slowed to a crawl

Mauna Loa, the world’s largest active volcano located on the Big Island of Hawaii, has been erupting for nearly two weeks. Since then, officials have been watching lava headed for a main highway that connects Hilo to Kona. Good news came Thursday with officials saying the river of molten rock has slowed to a crawl.

Monarch butterfly population hits 20-year high in early count

Preliminary data from an annual count of monarch butterflies shows the population of the orange-and-black insects has hit a 20-year high. The group responsible for the count tempered the good news, noting that monarch numbers now are just 5% of what they were in the 1980s.
