The weather, currently.

Upper 70s and low 80s with chance of p.m. thunderstorms for Wednesday, Sept. 14th

Are you ready for a wet Wednesday? That plume of moisture from the remains of Hurricane Kay are coming to Colorado. You can see the moisture plume circled in green on our water vapor satellite below.

Most of the moisture will go to southern Colorado and the mountains and bring flash flooding concerns to burn scars in the high country. But some of you on the Front Range will see thunderstorms Wednesday.

So here is a quick rundown on how your Wednesday will go:

1) In the morning we see cloudy conditions and cooler temperatures with 60s.

2) By the afternoon, high temperatures will be about 10 degrees cooler than Tuesday with temperatures in the upper 70s and low 80s.

3) In the evening we see chances of storms. Right now it appears that most of the storm coverage will be in areas near the foothills (Boulder County, Golden, Lakewood, Broomfield and Roxborough Park) and in our southern towns (Castle Rock, Centennial, Lone Tree, Highlands Ranch).

Activity forecast

Walking, gardening, grilling: Try to get your outside time done earlier in the day before 4 p.m. due to thunderstorms coming to the area.

Running, cycling, active outdoor sports: The best time to do anything will be before 4 p.m. due to thunderstorm activity. If you are planning an organized outdoor sport, consider moving activity indoors for the day.

Global warming could likely still trigger multiple climate ”tipping points,” even if countries meet the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, according to a new study in Science published Thursday.

The study revealed that even if we meet the Paris Agreement’s goal of keeping global warming at 1.5°C is not enough to avoid the danger of climate change. According to the study, tipping points, if crossed, will lead to irreversible, self-perpetuating changes.

Tipping points include the die-off of low-latitude coral reefs, greenhouse gas emissions thawing permafrost, the melting of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet and the shutdown of the ocean current which includes the Gulf Stream, to name a few.
