The weather, currently.

Mid 60s and sunny for Thursday, October 13th. 

We are done with one cold front. Here comes the next one! Our next cold front will drop our temperatures again on Thursday making it feel more like fall. Because this is a cold front, there's more than just temperatures involved. Winds could be an issue tomorrow, with winds gusting anywhere from 30 to 35 mph in higher terrain and the eastern plains. Also, even though it is cooler, we could also have fire danger because the windy weather could make it easy for a fire, if it were to ignite, to spread very quickly. Be careful with fire sources on Thursday.

Here's a look at what you can expect Thursday:

1) Still cooler in the morning with temperatures in the low 40s by sunrise and 50s by 9 a.m. It's layering season!

2) The afternoon will be cooler with windy conditions at times. Highs will be in the mid 60s.

3) It actually gets warmer on Friday. I'll have details in the next newsletter.

Activity forecast:

Grilling: Given the winds and fire danger, it would be a good idea to skip out on the grilling Thursday.

Any other activity: As I said before, layers are your best friend, especially in the morning hours. Keep in mind, with the wind it might also feel a little cooler as well. Keep that jacket handy with you no matter where you go.

Anna Abraham has a story up today on state-sanctioned water scarcity in Palestine.

"The heatwave that hit Israel and Palestine this summer brought extreme temperatures to the region, raising temperatures by 5 degrees C (41 degrees F) above the seasonal average. In the Jordan Valley, the eastern portion of the West Bank region of Palestine, temperatures soared as high as 45 degrees C (113 degrees F).

However, despite these extreme changes, Israelis, in both the Zionist State and the Settlements, did not face any water shortages, while Palestinians in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, as usual, did."
