The weather, currently.
We are now locked in a pattern of dry weather through the weekend. We are pulling on an area of dry air that, believe it or not, extends all the way to from Colorado to New England. That dry air will keep everything calm for a bit.
When is the next time we see moisture? Looking ahead we may have a shot at more rain at the beginning of next week depending on how wind and pressure patterns go. If everything works out, we may be set to tap into some more monsoonal moisture from the desert southwest. As always, I'll keep you posted.
So here's the breakdown for your Thursday:
1) Low 90s in the afternoon.
2) More sunshine
3) It's looking sunny for your weekend too.
What you need to know, currently.
Switzerland's glaciers continue to melt due to the impacts of climate change, as shown by new drone footage. Some have retreated so much that they have revealed things like unidentified human remains and nearly 500-year old plane wreckage.
Most of the world’s glaciers are retreating amid rising temperatures, but those in the Alps are the most vulnerable as they’re smaller and have less ice cover. This year, they’re on track for their highest loss of mass in a 60-year-long record.
Last winter brought little snowfall and this summer has brought sweltering, record-breaking temperatures as well as too early-summer heatwaves, including one in July with temperatures near 30°C (86°F) in Zermatt, a Swiss mountain village. As a result, the Alps’ glaciers have shrunk.
