Currently in Denver - August 25, 2022

The weather, currently.

Upper 80s (maybe 90) and 30% chance of pm thunderstorms for Thursday, August 25th.

Welcome back, moisture! Yep, storms come back in the forecast for your Thursday. With the moisture we see most storms pop up over the high country in the afternoon, which means we will have to watch our burn scars for a flash flooding risk. We also see a 30% chance of storms for the Boulder and Denver area in the evening hours. Also temperatures will climb back into the upper 80s, even low 90s for your Thursday.

Here are the 3 things you need to know for your Thursday:

1) Thunderstorms are back. Great chance of storms is for the Boulder and Denver area. We don't really see much the closer you get to Fort Collins.

2) Warmest day of the week. Even with the clouds we could see temperatures climb into the 90s and upper 80s in the afternoon.

3) More storms possible for Friday.

What you need to know, currently.

A new study published in elife looks at which mammals are most likely to hold up in the face of climate change. Ecological disruption has already caused vast upheaval in the natural world and a report from the World Wildlife Foundation found that sixty percent of wildlife had been lost between 1970 and 2014. Much of this is due to habitat loss, but climate change will only exacerbate the problem.

The study in elife found that animals with extended life spans and low birth rates are more able to adapt to extreme weather. Elephants, tigers, chimps, llamas, and American bison are all predicted to fare better than species such as the Arctic fox, the common shrew, the stout, and the Tundra vole.
