Just like the firework shows always save the best for their finale, Mt. Rainier is helping say goodbye to 2012 in dazzling fashion. What you are seeing is our largest mountain casting its shadow on the sky. The skies were painted with clouds at...

On a day to give thanks, we can be thankful that both Ryan Verwest and YouNews contributor "troxa41622511086" had a great view of Mt. Rainier and had their cameras handy. (At nearly the same time, apparently!)

Mt. Rainier was the...

SEATTLE -- 2011 might be best remembered for what didn't happen in the weather world as opposed to what did. Seattle did not get 23 feet of snow in one day. We did not have snow drifts so high one could safely walk off the Space Needle's...

Mt. Rainier has quite a few tricks up its sleeve for adding additional beauty to the Pacific Northwest, from the majestic snow-capped peaks, to the mysterious lenticular cloud displays. But another trick it pulls off during the fall and winter is...

Original Pubish Date: April 22, 2009: Mt. Rainier....is big. And thus, you'd think when the sun shines on it, it would cast a big shadow, and you would be right. No time is that more apparent than in the winter. Usually between November and...

Cumulus clouds get all the press, what with their imagination-energizing shape-shifting powers ("I see a duck!" "I see a bunny!" "I see the opening scene from Winnie the Pooh's new movie!") But there are plenty of other clouds out there worthy of...
