The Weather Channel fired back at President Donald Trump's tweet this week about the cold weather in the eastern part of the country by explaining how the commander in chief confused climate with weather.

Trump tweeted this Thursday:

The Weather Channel responded with a tweet of its own Friday morning:

And followed with this one later in the day:

The Weather Channel's tweets linked to a story the network published carrying the headline, "Trump Tweets About the Bitter Cold and Global Warming, Confusing Weather and Climate."

The story accused the Trump administration of overlooking science as it relates to global warming, a topic that has become highly politicized in recent years. Trump withdrew the United States from the Paris climate agreement this year.

"Several groups of scientists have found that warming in the Arctic and the resulting loss of sea ice are making it more likely that the jet stream will take dramatic wintertime dips and push intense cold outbreaks into midlatitude areas, such as the eastern U.S.," the story quotes Weather Underground's Bob Henson as saying. "These cold waves aren't enough to compensate for the overall warming of the climate across the whole planet."

The story argued that brief periods of severe cold are not indicative of a cooling climate. In fact, the Weather Channel cited figures that showed the average temperature in the U.S. from January-November this year was the third highest since 1895.
