The weather, currently.

Upper 60s with mostly sunny skies for Wednesday, October 5th. 

It smooth sailing for the rest of the work week. The front that brought us lots of moisture is headed East and we have a dry air mass moving in. That means we see sunny skies for Wednesday and temperatures in the upper 60s.

One thing to note, the fall leaves should be nearing peak in the mountains right now! Now it a good time to start planning a visit up I-70 if you can this week and this weekend!

Here's your calm forecast for Wednesday:

1) Cool morning with temperatures in the upper 40s by 6 a.m. and 50s by 9 a.m.

2) Afternoon is mild with temperatures in the upper 60s

3) Just a nice day to be outside.

Activity forecast:

All activities: It will be cool in the morning. Wear layers if you are headed out at that time. For the rest of the day, you should be good to go!

Fueled by climate change — Typhoon Noru became a super typhoon
Nearly a dozen dead, and hundreds of thousands were displaced in recent super typhoon Noru.

“Typhoon Noru made landfall in the northern region of the Philippines and then made its way to Vietnam, last week — causing extreme flooding and killing at least 12, according to local reporting.

Local Filipinos weren’t given much time to prepare. The storm quickly developed into a super typhoon — the equivalent of a category 5 hurricane — with sustaining winds of up to 143 miles per hour, once it hit land.

This is similar to what residents in Florida just experienced with Hurricane Ian. Rapidly intensifying typhoons and hurricanes are becoming more common because of climate change, according to meteorologists. Warmer waters and excess moisture in the air give even the smallest of storms the boost they need to become devastating.

Local resources quickly become finite in these instances of extreme weather. Nearly tens of thousands of people were stranded in one of the Philippine’s many temporary evacuation centers, unable to safely re-enter their homes and communities, thanks to Noru.”
