Sunny and 60s for Wednesday, May 25th

For all of you wanting to go back to summer-like conditions, don’t worry, the heat is coming back. A ridge of high pressure will set itself over the state of Colorado and bring with it warmer temperatures. We can expect to see 60s, 70 and even 80s as highs for the rest of the week thanks to this ridge.

So, what can we expect for Wednesday:

1) Morning will still be cold with temps in the 30s and 40s.

2) Afternoon is warmer than Tuesday with temperatures in the 60s. We see sunny conditions during the day.

3) Thursday we get 70s!

What you need to know, currently.

Today we published an op-ed, by climate scientist Ailie Gallant about Australia’s Federal election. For the first time in over ten years, there is a “clear mandate” to significantly reduce Australia’s carbon emissions, centering climate change in conversations of policy and practice in the Australian electorate.

This moment in time is particularly significant because independents and other minor parties made up almost one-third of the votes, which is the largest amount of votes that non-major parties have had in Australian political history.

“This sets a precedent in 2022,” Gallant wrote. “We have shown that, collectively, we will vote outside the major two-party system for issues, like climate change, that are important to us.”

Gallant is confident that Australia will now play a larger role in ending the climate crisis.

“As a climate scientist, I am more hopeful now than I have ever been, that Australia will step up to the global table and play its part to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees C, per the Paris Agreement,” Gallant wrote. These cuts must be achieved if we are to avoid the worst effects of climate change.”
