Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The weather remains one of those things in life that can´t actually be changed, but being able to predict and track weather is the next best thing. By being able to improve forecasting and storm tracking abilities are just two ways that the United States National Weather Service (NWS) can help better protect the country from severe weather. The U.S. economy remains vulnerable to severe weather events, which can cost...
