    Residents in Norway have been reeling from the country's coldest summer in nearly 30 to 60 years. Early in July, more than 10 m (32 feet) of snow accumulated in parts of the southern region, which was unprecedented for this time of the year. According to state meteorologists, Oslo has recorded an average temperature of just 14.7 °C (58.5 °F) this month, which was the coldest in nearly 30 years. Meanwhile, Bergen's average has been even colder at 12.8 °C (55 °F). Trondheim hit 12.1 °C (53.8 °F), the coldest for almost 60 years. “ In Oslo, we have to...

    The New York Post reports that the big, flaming ball in the sky is about to go into “lockdown” just like the rest of us. The sun is currently in a period of “solar minimum,” meaning activity on its surface has fallen dramatically.Experts believe we are about to enter the deepest period of sunshine “recession” ever recorded as sunspots have virtually disappeared.Astronomer Dr. Tony Phillips said: “Solar Minimum is underway and it’s a deep one.”“Sunspot counts suggest it is one of the deepest of the past century. The sun’s magnetic field has become weak, allowing extra cosmic rays into the...

Snow will begin Friday afternoon across the interior Northeast and spread into New England by Friday evening and continue overnight, when snowfall rates could be heavy at times. This will be a heavy, wet snow, so power outages are likely (especially with leaves on the trees, which will make them heavier...

    A potentially record-breaking snowstorm is headed for the Northeast this weekend, and it could bring historic snowfall totals to the inner Northeast and New England. A storm system barreling into the Northeast will clash with winter cold associated with the polar vortex on Friday, bringing the potential for heavy, wet snow across the inner Northeast. At the same time, the rest of the I-95 corridor could see heavy rain. Snowfall totals could range from a dusting to more than a foot in isolated areas of the extreme north of New England. Either way, a snowstorm in May could shatter May...

    In 2011, hikers in the snowy mountains of central Norway came across a 1700-year-old wool tunic, likely belonging to a Roman-era hypothermia victim. As ice in the region has continued to melt, researchers have made hundreds of additional finds. Now, archaeologists have made their biggest discovery yet: a lost Viking trade route that may have been used for hundreds of years to ferry everything from butter to reindeer antlers to far-flung European markets.

Universal Studios tweeted out that its Volcano Bay water park will be closed Monday through Wednesday due to the unusual wave of cold weather slated to hit. Arctic air is funneling into Florida starting Monday, causing the coldest temperatures of the winter so far,...

    A 68-year-old California woman who's been missing for almost a week was found alive Wednesday in her SUV that was buried under snow, officials said. Paula Beth James of Oroville, California disappeared Jan. 9, triggering a Silver Alert. The Butte County Sheriff's Office said James has medical conditions that may have disoriented her. “Her tracks were covered in snow,” said Dan Newman, who works for Butte County Search and Rescue. “We knew if we were going to find her and find her alive, we were going to have to do it really quickly.” A sheriff's helicopter was searching near Butte...

    For two days in a row, Antero Reservoir in Park County has had the lowest temperature recorded in the United States at — brrr — 48 degrees below zero. That's not all. On Monday, Crested Butte recorded a temperature of -31 degrees Fahrenheit. Alamosa, Gunnison and Kremmling all recorded lows of -26 degrees. Jim Kalina, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said Antero Reservoir — which is about 75 miles west of Colorado Springs — typically gets that cold every year at least a couple times. It sits at nearly 9,000 feet of elevation, after all. The coldest temperature...

    If you're planning on buying strawberries for a holiday dish this season, you may want to have a plan B ready to go. There's currently a strawberry shortage originating from three of the major strawberry growing regions. The shortage is causing many stores to be unable to fully restock their strawberry shelves, because demand is exceeding supply.

    A cold like never before seen in October is hitting Utah on Tuesday and Wednesday as a record-breaking Arctic cold front brings freezing air straight from Canada. Parts of the state had highs only in the 20s, which FOX 13 Chief Meteorologist Kristen Van Dyke said has never happened before on an October day. On Wednesday, temperatures in Salt Lake City are expected to break all-time records. The coldest recorded October temperature in the city was in 1971 with 16-degree low and 35-degree high.

    Researchers from University College London are forecasting an average temperature in the UK of just 3.9şC (39şF) for January to February in what is expected to be “the coldest weather in 30 years.” Yahoo News reported Saturday that temperatures in Great Britain could reach as low as -14C with “snow event after snow event” expected to hit various parts of the territory. Forecasters expect the lasting cold spell to begin sometime this month and to continue at least through March. “October is now looking like it will turn out to be colder than average with more of a chance of...

    A strong Sierra cold front packing winds gusting up to 50 mph dropped the first snow of the season Monday in the mountains along the California-Nevada line and damaged a small airplane that was blown off the runway at an airport north of Reno. Rain was falling in the valleys around Reno and Sparks Monday afternoon as the cold front sent temperatures plummeting across western Nevada. Temperatures were 15 to 20 degrees cooler than Sunday’s highs in the upper 80s and low 90s. The National Weather Service issued a red flag warning effective until 6 p.m. Monday for most of...

    On summer's opening day, up to 20 inches of snow buried the high terrain of the Colorado Rockies, boosting the state's snowpack to extraordinary levels for the time of year. The solstice flakes marked a continuation of a snowy stretch that began in January and February and lingered through spring. Even before the solstice snow, The Denver Post wrote, the state's snowpack was "in virtually every numerical sense . . . off the charts." At the time, the snowpack was 751 percent above normal. Due to the new snow Friday into the weekend, the Natural Resources Conservation Service reported that...

    Climate change represents “a near-to midterm existential threat to human civilization,according to an analysis by the Breakthrough National Centre for Climate Restoration. The paper, published by the Australian think tank last week, gives one scenario in which by 2050 "accelerating climate-change impacts pose large negative consequences which might not be undone for centuries." If policymakers fail to act on evidence presented in the current Paris Agreement, in which global human-caused greenhouse emissions will not peak until 2030, this will lock in about 3 degrees Celsius of warming, according to the scenario presented in the report. There is "broad scientific acceptance"...
