Frigid Friday: Tens of millions in US see coldest morning of the year



Friday morning was the coldest morning of the winter so far for tens of millions of Americans, with longstanding records being broken from the Midwest, into the Tennessee River Valley, and eastward to the East Coast

The cold comes courtesy of a highly contorted, or in weather lingo, “amplified,” jet stream pattern related in part to the polar vortex. The air flowing southward into the U.S. hails from Arctic Canada, with some lineage tracing back to Siberia. For this reason, many are calling…

U.S. hit with most unusually cold air of any region in the world this week



A powerful blast of frigid, Arctic air, which is being aided by a filament of the polar vortex, has begun smashing longstanding temperature records, from the Ohio Valley to the mid-Atlantic states

Judd Apatow’s ‘Trainwreck’ trailer: Just try and look away



It’s been a few years since Judd Apatow was in the director’s chair, but he’s back with Trainwreck. The film stars Amy Schumer as a magazine writer whose anti-monogamy ways are challenged when she starts falling for an interview subject, a successful sports doctor played by SNL alum Bill Hader.

Although Apatow’s fingerprints are in every corner of comedy these days, his track record as a director has been spotty: The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up were high points, but Funny People and…

9 crazy snow records Boston has already broken this season



Boston has been walloped by snow this winter, including 23.1 inches in one storm that ended on Monday. With a total of 77.3 inches, it’s now the ninth-snowiest season since modern weather records began in 1891, and the third-snowiest February on record.

For the snowiest winter of all time, look back to 1995-96, which saw a whopping 107.6 inches in total. But there are two more storms headed toward Boston over the next few days, meaning it could get closer to breaking that record as well. In…
