With soaring temperatures in the forecast, risks rise from California's Sherpa Fire, and other blazes across the West

From a trail near my house along Colorado's Front Range, the majestic Rockies ordinarily stand out in clear relief against blue Western skies.

NOAA confirms it: temperatures across Earth's land and sea surfaces are still running at record highs

Earlier this week, NASA released its monthly analysis of global average temperatures — and now NOAA has followed with its own.

Here's what the brutal heat wave now setting up across a large part of the U.S. looks like — in four simple graphics

I created the animation above to show how the heat wave coming to a large portion of the United States is forecast to evolve between now and Tuesday.

Going, going, GONE — California's snowpack has vanished

A premature melt-out has replenished reservoirs, but with a drying La Niña probably coming, California's water woes are far from over After El Niño failed to deliver salvation from California's epic drought, it has now come to this: Statewide, snowpack is down to just 6 percent of normal for this time of year.

Lastest analysis from NASA: It's now eight straight months of record shattering global warmth

By NASA's reckoning, May was the warmest such month on record. But Earth's particularly high fever may be breaking — at least for now.

Surface melting of snow and ice in Greenland explodes as temperatures soar to record levels

With parts of Greenland experiencing record high temperatures of late, melting of snow and ice at the surface has been skyrocketing.

Mammatus clouds catch fire during blazing Niwotian sunset

I know what you're probably thinking. Yulsman totally manipulated this sunset image in Photoshop. But actually, this is the JPG file straight out of the camera (a SONY A7R with a Zeiss zoom lens attached).

Animation of satellite images shows smoke from a Russian wildfire getting sucked into a weather system vortex

Wildfire activity in Russia's Far East has seen something of an upsurge this spring compared to the same period last year.

Although its impacts on the weather still reverberate, El Niño has now officially gone bye bye

Forecasters lean toward the emergence of a weak to 'borderline moderate' La Niña in the fall If you live in Texas — or Indonesia, for that matter — it might be difficult to believe, but El Niño truly has gone away.

Arctic sea ice continues its downward spiral, reaching a record low extent for the month of May

If the trend continues, sea ice coverage will decline to an historic minimum by summer's end in September Back in mid-May, unusually warm conditions, and shrinking sea ice coverage, prompted Ted Scambos of the National Snow and Ice Data Center to predict that "the Arctic is going to go through hell this year." Almost a month later, that prediction seems right on track.

eARTh: The North Atlantic Ocean comes alive in beautiful blue and green swirls of painterly phytoplankton

Billions of tiny plant-like organisms have painted the seas in a swirling pattern reminiscent of Vincent Van Gogh's famous painting, The Starry Night.

No let up yet in the relentless rain pummeling Texas and surrounding Southern Plains

Parts of Europe have also been deluged, and today, Paris is flooding A slow-moving low-pressure system sucking tropical moisture from the Gulf of Mexico into Texas and nearby areas is forecast to become nearly stationary today. The very unfortunate result: More thunderstorms will pummel a region already reeling from record rainfall.

Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away

Mount Washington weather observers didn't exactly fly away on 109 mph winds, but from the looks of this video, it could have happened Weather observer Mike Dorfman describes the wind that roared across the summit of Mount Washington in New Hampshire yesterday as "blustery." But if you click on the image above to watch the video of what it was like, I'm sure you'll agree that it was much more than that!

Second dramatic spike in thawing on the Greenland ice sheet heralds an early start to the melt season

The Arctic will "go through hell this year," says one prominent scientist | Note: This story was updated on 5/16/2016 at 7 p.m.

Second dramatic spike in thawing atop the Greenland ice sheet heralds an early start to the melt season

On April 11, a dramatic early spike in melting of snow and ice at the surface of Greenland's ice sheet prompted a Danish climate scientist to say that she and her colleagues were "incredulous." Now, there has been a second bout of unusual melting.

April 2016: The heat goes on

April was the warmest such month on record, continuing an extraordinary stretch of global warming Following six previous record-setting months, April 2016 kept the run going: It was the warmest such month on record, according to data just released by NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

As El Niño fades, here comes La Niña

A big blob of cold water is rising from the depths in the equatorial Pacific, heralding the likely arrival of La Niña by fall What a difference a few months make.

Spiraling global warming

Clear, simple and compelling: a visualization of the rise in our planet's average temperature from 1850 to the present I spotted this animated visualization over at the Washington Post's awesome Capital Weather Gang site today, and I found it so compelling that I had to share it here at ImaGeo.

Watch tiny, dark Mercury glide across the luminous face of the Sun in glorious timelapse detail

Yesterday's transit of Mercury between the Sun and Earth was captured by countless amateur and professional astrophotographers alike, including Discover's photo editor, Ernie Mastroianni.

Canada wildfire could be the kickoff to a record-setting summer for Earth's northern reaches

The same warmth that fueled the Fort McMurray wildfire has been setting up the Arctic for extraordinary losses of sea ice The rampaging wildfire that blazed through the city of Fort McMurray in Alberta, destroying an estimated 1,600 homes, will likely continue burning for months to come.
