By Mary Ann Grossmann, Pioneer Press, St. Paul, Minn. Jul. 6--For Minnesotans, "up north" is not a specific place. It's an idea that lives in our hearts and imaginations. "Up north" could be as close as the Chisago chain of lakes or as distant as Lake of the Woods. For many of us, though, "up north" means Lake Superior, its North Shore and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Today, we celebrate this giant inland sea and the cities that surround it with a roundup of worthy books...

By Albert Ching, The Tribune, Mesa, Ariz. Jul. 4--BRAVE THE FOOD: We all know the stereotypes about British food -- specifically, that it's terrible -- but you can decide for yourself with the fish and chips, bangers and mash and bread pudding at the British Open Pub in Scottsdale. There's also the Cornish Pasty Co. in Tempe, which features pasties (the name refers to the food, not the complexion of your average Briton), which are basically fancy Hot Pockets that originate from the...

By JANE HAASE ONE predicted effect of the current credit crunch is that we are likely to tighten our belts when it comes to foreign travel and holiday much closer to home. And having just spent a week in Cornwall, that's not such a bad thing. It's a chance form any, who for too long have been seduced by the promise of good weather abroad (which is no guarantee at all, just look at Coleen and Wayne's big day), to rediscover the delights of a British seaside holiday. In the past when...

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- Chased into the Lake Superior shallows, mauled and left for dead by fellow wolves, the young female struggled to shore and collapsed. A lone male came to the rescue, licking her wounds and staying on as she recovered. Together they formed a successful and prolific pack, with the female bearing at least 19 pups. But their love story has ended tragically: A rival pack killed the female this winter, a year after fatally attacking her mate as he munched on a moose...

By JOHN KEKIS PARISH, N.Y. - Sunshine greeted residents of this snowbound village on Saturday, giving crews a chance to haul away some of the 8 feet of snow that has fallen during the past week. "The sun's out, but it isn't going to last," Mike Avery said as he took a brief break from loading dump trucks with snow to be taken to a pile outside town. The National Weather Service said the bands of lake-effect snow fed by moisture from Lake Ontario would continue weaving up and down the...

For campers at Isle Royale National Park, sighting a gray wolf is a rare and thrilling experience. At least, it has been. But some wolves have gotten a bit too familiar this summer, wandering into camping areas and showing little of their customary fear of people. No attacks or threatening behavior have been reported. But the close encounters prompted warnings to visitors not to feed the wolves. "Wolves are wild animals and potentially dangerous like any wild animals," said Michigan Tech...

Weather Education: The Effects Of A Pacific Northwest Low
2012-10-08 10:05:31

The Pacific Northwest low moves on shore typically in or around the Portland and Seattle area. At location A the type of weather that can be seen is usually thunderstorms and higher elevation rain showers form during the summer. This same area will see coastal rains and heavy mountain snows in the winter. When the system arrives at location B, the Rockies, due to topographic enhancement it can produce heavy rain/t-storms in the summer time, while during the winter this same area can see...

The Great Lakes And Their Impact On The Weather
2012-07-23 08:58:48

The Great lakes have a huge impact in the weather for the cities that are near the lakes. In the fall and early winter months the lakes can create intense snowfall events known as “Lake Effect Snow”. The reason that this occurs has to do with the water temps of the lakes and also the temps of the air that is moving across them. When an Alberta Clipper system forms in Canada and moves Southeastward towards the US, it brings that cold air and strong Northwest winds over the warmer waters....

The snowbelt is a North American region that lies downwind of the Great lakes, where heavy snowfall is common on mostly the eastern and southern shores of the Great Lakes. Lake-effect snow is caused by cold air picking up moisture while crossing the lake and then releasing it as snow when the air cools over land. Throughout much of the winter, lakes produce lake-effect snow and continuously cloudy skies. This phenomenon continues as long as the air temperature is colder than the water...
