High 80s and low storm chances for Wednesday, June 29th

It’s the end of June and it’s Denver so that must mean heat and another day of low storm chances. We are still working with some shortwaves moving through the area, which means energy for potential storms mostly in the mountains and foothills. The rest of the Denver-Metro doesn’t see a good chance of rain until the end of this week. Stay tuned for more on that!

Here’s a quick look at the forecast for Wednesday:

1) High 80s and low 90s for afternoon temperatures.

2) Chances of thunderstorms for the afternoon and evening.

3) Better shot of storms on Thursday.

One of Currently’s contributors, Grennan Milliken, recently wrote a story about the malaria vaccine as a form of climate resilience and advocacy.

“As climate change persists, new weather systems could allow malaria to spread and thrive more easily, making the malaria vaccine a form of climate resiliency,” Milliken writes.

“In fact, weather systems are one of the most important factors to consider when tracking the spread of malaria, Milliken continues. “Some researchers have taken this fact and tried to posit what will happen to the spread of malaria as climate change persists. Many have even wondered if the disease could re-enter places it has been eradicated from — imagining Anopheles mosquitoes taking over cities like Houston or Atlanta. But this ignores a lot of other environmental and societal factors that also have roles to play in the spread of these malaria vectors.”
