- It wasn't the first time we've heard thunder in the winter, but it was the first time I received so many questions regarding its sound. In this WoW we'll look at why winter thunder can sound different than summer's thunder.
- Is it true that it only takes one day of thunder to produce snow in 7 days? This was originally posted last December, but recent events brought it back to the top of a lot of conversations.
- The video has been circulating around the internet these past few weeks of snow turning black when placed near fire. Conspiracy? Hoax? We'll throw some science on this flame in this week's World of Weather.
- If you thought the snowfall was impressive, wait until you see the temperature trends from this winter. From record highs to record lows, eastern North Carolina has been yo-yoing through this winter.
- If you follow me on Facebook (Matt Engelbrecht WITN) or Twitter (@EngelWx), you have probably seen a frenzy of activity regarding the snow. Click on over for the most interesting images thus far.
- Most of the snow impacting the area came to an end ~3am Wednesday. A few locations though received a "snow encore" and had flakes through 11am. Click on over to learn more about this very rare ENC event...
- An international citizen scientist project is currently underway to evaluate the light pollution around the globe. Every month Globe At Night will introduce a new constellation to view and rate.
- There's no argument that temperatures have been on a roller coaster this winter, but in your opinion, has it felt warmer or colder than last year? Click on over to see what the numbers say.
- Comet ISON was going to be one of the brightest objects in our night sky this December IF it made the trip around the sun. Did it survive? Also, click on over to see how the forecasts stacked up against this year's hurricane season.
- Mason Kellum of Jacksonville was our winner of the WITN Bojangles' Weather Kid Contest. He took over the World of Weather duties this week. Click to see his explanation of the water cycle and a few behind the scenes pictures/videos.
- Set the alarm clock, grab a jacket and head outside. Sunday morning we'll have front row seats to a partial solar eclipse. Here you'll find a graphic to help with viewing this celestial event.
- Normally when green shows up on the radar we think it's rain, but that isn't always the case. In this week's World of Weather we'll investigate a green radar signature that's been "migrating" into our weather graphics.
- On both a national and local scale, the number of tornadoes and general severe weather has been much lower than average. Click on over for the numbers and an overview of our Summer/Severe weather season.
- There is a scheduled launch of a two-stage Antares rocket from Wallops Island Wednesday at 10:58am. Most of eastern Carolina will have a chance to spot this rocket as it heads to the ISS
- While most will forecast the number of hurricanes in a season, Coastal Carolina and "HUGO" will attempt to predict which ones will hit the United States...months before the start of hurricane season
