Currently in Denver - August 9, 2022

The weather, currently.

Back to low 90s and sunshine for Tuesday, August 9th. 

After two days of rain in some part (and one day of extreme flooding for parts of Denver, Aurora and Commerce City), it is time to dry out. We have an area of high pressure that is going to take over and pull in some dry air to our area. That will increase our temperatures back into the 90s and we will see sunny skies for the next couple of days. If you want more moisture, I see a slight chance at the end of the week. I'll keep tabs on it and let you know if that turns out.

So here is how your Tuesday shakes out:

  1. Drying out. Sunny skies for Tuesday.
  2. Back to high temperatures in the low 90s.
  3. Dry weather continues for Wednesday.

What you need to know, currently.

We have a story up today by Anna Abraham on the historic drought sweeping East Africa:

“For the fourth consecutive time, the rainy season has failed in East Africa and is likely to fail yet again in the short rains period from October to December this year,” writes Abraham.

“The locust infestation that swept across the Horn of Africa in 2020 added to the food crisis. Over 20 million people are reeling from the effects of the drought, with many areas on the brink of localized famine. Over 1.8 million children are facing life-threatening malnutrition. To make matters worse, food prices are soaring due to global inflation.”
