California braced for mudslides and torrential rain after devastating stormAuthorities have warned of the threat of mudslides after a damaging storm struck California, trapping people in floodwaters, triggering a debris flow which destroyed homes and forcing residents to flee communities scorched by wildfires last year. The powerful system swept in from the Pacific Ocean and unleashed rain, snow and wind across the US west coast into Wyoming and Colorado after walloping northern California and southern Oregon. The National Weather Service reported staggering rainfall amounts across California, including more than 24cm over 48 hours at one location in the San Bernardino Mountains east of Los Angeles.

Look at this colossal storm on Uranus

Look at this colossal storm on UranusUranus, a huge gaseous world some 1.8 billion miles from the sun, is quite stormy. NASA's long-lived Hubble telescope spotted a notable storm churning inside the planet's blue-green atmosphere, and the space agency posted the image online Thursday. The entirety of Uranus' north pole is engulfed by a "vast bright stormy cloud cap," wrote NASA. "Scientists believe this new feature is a result of Uranus' unique rotation," added NASA, noting that, unlike the other planets in our solar system, Uranus is tipped on its side. This leaves the sun shining non-stop onto its north pole during its long summer, likely resulting in widespread atmospheric changes.  Uranus as seen by the Hubble Space Telescope. Image: nasa Just beneath the massive polar storm is a smaller, compact white cloud made of the common gas methane, notes NASA. The space agency also spotted a new storm brewing on Neptune. It's the dark spot near the top of the planet and is somewhat mysterious, as these massive dark storms have been observed appearing and then vanishing relatively quickly.

Neptune as seen in November 2018. Image: nasa NASA plans to continue monitoring weather on these frigid, far-off gas giants to better understand the extraterrestrial storms.  "Just as meteorologists cannot predict the weather on Earth by studying a few snapshots, astronomers cannot track atmospheric trends on solar system planets without regularly repeated observations," the space agency wrote. "Astronomers hope that Hubble's long-term monitoring of the outer planets will help them unravel the mysteries that still persist about these faraway worlds."
