The Weather Service prepares to launch prediction model that many forecasters don’t trust | The Washington Post
In a month, the National Weather Service plans to launch its “next generation” weather prediction model with the aim of “better, more timely forecasts.” But many meteorologists familiar with the model fear it is unreliable. Cliff Mass, a professor of atmospheric sciences at the UW, is quoted.

Polar vortex to attack US next week with 'life-threatening, brutal' cold
Though a fierce blast of cold air froze the central U.S. Friday, what's coming next week will be even worse:
Using words such as "life-threatening," "dangerous," "brutal," and "unprecedented," the National Weather Service is preparing us for the extreme cold that's forecast to roar into the U.S. next week.
"The coldest air of the season will plunge the upper Midwest and Great Lakes into life-threatening conditions" next week, the weather service said Friday. The cold will be most intense from Tuesday through Thursday.
And although the worst of the cold will be over the north-central region, practically the entire eastern two-thirds of the nation will see freezing temperatures, all the way down to central Florida. That's nearly 200 million people. 
On Friday, the numbing cold prompted officials to close schools in several states. This included the Milwaukee public schools, Wisconsin's largest school district.
The deep freeze caused organizers of the Winter Carnival in Minnesota to cancel several events.

Global Vs. Local Perspective. The Difficulties In Helping People Understand Climate Change. - The Catholic Astronomer
This is one of those posts I almost dread to write. The reason I say almost is because I have come to peace with my understanding of global climate change. The reason I feel a hint of dread is because of how the people I know who live in Wisconsin will react to this post.
These past three weeks, we have experience wind chills that have dropped to -51 degrees Fahrenheit, multiple snow storms that shut down local schools for days at a time, and so much cloud cover that those with seasonal affect disorder are going a little nutty. Am I simply complaining about the weather as many in the Midwest United States enjoy doing? Perhaps. However, my primary reason for reflecting on this is because NASA, the United Kingdom Met Office, and the World Meteorological Organization have found that 2018 was the fourth warmest year on record.  After reading the reports, I have no problem embracing these findings. For many I know in Wisconsin, I'm sure I'll be greeted with, "Hey Father, I read your post on climate change. So, I've got this bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you!"

Fewer ‘fasten seat belt’ warnings, courtesy of IBM | Bloomberg
You probably didn’t know you had a barometer in your phone, but International Business Machines Corp. does. IBM is planning to use barometric data from millions of phones (with their owners’ permission) to improve global weather forecasting.

Rain, warmer temps could bring 'great melt-out' Tuesday |
Slick roads and power outages remain in the wake of Western Washington’s series of snowstorms. Warmer temperatures and a little rain Tuesday could clear away much of the snow, but that depends on where you live. Cliff Mass, professor of atmospheric sciences at the UW, is quoted.
