Fresh update on "la nina" discussed on UN News
"This is the news in brief from the United Nations. Many of us have just experienced one of the three warmest July on record, according to the UN world meteorological organization, temperatures were close to 0.4°C above the 1991 to 2020 average across much of Europe with southwestern and Western Europe being the most above average regions because of an intense heat wave around mid July. This is despite the la Nina event that's meant to have a cooling influence explained Claire nullis, WMO spokesperson, we saw this in some places, but not globally she added. Maximum temperatures were broken in Portugal, western France and Ireland while England saw record 40°C readings for the first time. Using data from the European Commission's Copernicus climate change service, the UN weather agency confirmed that this was the joint 6th warmest July for Europe. Below average temperatures were observed along the western Indian Ocean and from the Horn of Africa to southern India, over much of Central Asia, as well as most of Australia. They also dominated a band of territory stretching from Iceland across Scandinavia via the Baltic countries, continuing as far as the Caspian Sea. July also saw the lowest Antarctic sea ice on record a full 7% below average. Arctic sea ice was 4% below average ranking 12th, lowest for July, according to satellite records which started in 1979. The UN global health agency unit aid has warned that the war in Ukraine is increasing the risk of premature births and babies needing oxygen. These have been up to three times more than before the war depending on the hospital you speak to, so the agencies have a who sell on Tuesday. According to mister ver, who still, babies born prematurely are more likely to develop respiratory neurological or digestive complication conditions that often require oxygen for treatment. Along with partner veil global health, unit aid has provided 220 ultra low cost portable electricity free devices and a 125 oxygen blender systems, together they supply infants with the breathing support in oxygen therapy they need mister the who still explained. The devices can be used worldwide but are particularly well suited to use in humanitarian crises or low resource settings. World Health Organization spokesperson, a doctor Margaret Harris backed unit aids call for more investment in these health innovations. Every time there's an attack one of the things that happens is the electricity doesn't work. And I went to a pediatric hospital in zapper Asia, which is, as you know, is very much close to the active fighting line. And they actually sleep at every night in the basement and the kids that they've got on ventilation, et cetera, they have to move, or they try to move. So having very portable devices that can function offline is absolutely critical. With the rise in monkeypox, cases in Brazil, the UN World Health Organization has condemned recent attacks on monkeys in São Paulo. The UN health agency issued a clear message that monkeys do not transmit the virus, following the death of 5 monkeys in forested areas, possibly through stoning, beating or poisoning. People need to know very clearly that the transmission of the virus we are seeing is through person to person contact, said WHO spokesperson doctor Margaret Harris, she told journalists in Geneva that the concern should be about where the virus is transmitting in the human population and what humans can do to protect themselves from getting it and transmitting it. They should certainly not be attacking any animals she stressed. While the monkeypox virus is seen in a number of different animals, it is much more common in rodents. It was given its name after the virus was first identified in monkeys in a zoological garden in Denmark. WHO is currently in the process of changing the name of the disease and some announcements will be made soon the WHO spokesperson said, doctor Harris also warned against stigmatizing any animal or human with the disease. This will lead to a much larger outbreak due to people being afraid of identifying themselves and not getting the care they need or taking precautions, she said. Katie dartford, UN news..

Weather Events Come From God, Not Man-Made Climate Change
"Morning. I was in the hotel getting ready to go to the theater and I was watching CBS Sunday morning like I often do and then meet the face the nation with what's your name Margaret somebody Margaret Brennan, I think. And she throws to the weather guy. They are twisting themselves in a pretzel. We have a tornado hit, and they immediately gravitate to climate change. Listen to this. What was unusual is just how warm it was. Memphis hit a record high of 80°, and that's why we think that climate change is beginning to factor in. But I think the bigger factor is la Nina, and I'll tell you why. La Nina is present right now. And the latest research shows that we see an increase in tornado activity right there where we have the tornado outbreak on Friday night in the mid Mississippi valley area. So that's the overriding weather man says. Well, it could be climate, but then it could be la Nina. La Nina or I think it's just driving our SUVs. That's gotta be it. It can't be that God controls the weather. I'm telling you it's a spiritual thing. People on the left reject spirituality. God has got this, and I am so sad for all the people who are dealing with destruction and despair and loss, but things happen bad things happen to good people. And we don't understand it. We don't understand God's will. We don't understand floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, but this resistance to accepting God's plan, it's very real. It just is. It's very, very real.

"And they're like they're like my college football picks but the The the the buzzer starting to hear. Is we really are setting up for la nina Situation this winter which just means colder weather generally in the northern hemisphere which is where the people are and where industrial stuff is so. That's that's kind of the one thing. I think i see out there. That may be good Could trip us up. Yeah no that's exactly right. I mean the national weather forecast that has come out saying law. Lena probability has risen and that would be for colour winter and so so there's obviously a lot of switching that can be done from natural gas back to coal in some countries to oil in some countries you know all these different Generation units have different mechanisms to switch feedstock. But yes if you do see industrial activity fall off dramatically because there is not enough power to keep the lights on in the heat on and so they shudder in activity industrial activity that could cause big recession. We just saw that. The chinese numbers came out the other night Their gdp numbers were much lower than expected because of the blackouts that were there and there is a lot of high frequency data which is suggesting that the uk for example. Lots of different countries are dealing with that right now. So that's definitely a potential risk going to put you on the spot here. So what's kind of the oil forecast and go out kind of beyond at least this year. So so maybe even get us into twenty twenty three. What are what are you saying that oil prices are going to do so as opec always says we not forecast crisis. We forecast inventories but the inventory levels. Basically hundred percent correlated with price level. So that's when they're telling you that they're forecasting inventories they're really telling you that. Forecasting prices but so. I don't forecast so when when they ever say it's not about the money it's about the money. Yes yeah exactly. It's about inventories means it's about price. So i think we will see over one hundred dollars crude this year. But i think that will be the I think that that'll be the top of the cycle. So i think next year. We'll see prices come down again but like you're saying usually. The forward curve is a horrible predictor of price. But i do think that we're going to be at an elevated level of.

That were more likely to commit. Such an inadvertent. Integration seemed to support the hypothesis however to subsequent studies have presented new evidence that the detection technology used could be blame for the generation of hybrid human viral sequences during the analysis rather than events that occurred in the soles. The world health organization says more than eight million people of now being killed by the covid nineteen virus with over four million confirmed fatalities and over one hundred and eighty million people infected since the deadly disease.

"The us space forces accessory launched the new spy satellite the tactically responsive launch to payload was carried about a north route bremen pegasus xl rocket which was drop launched at forty thousand feet over the pacific ocean from the billy of stargazer a converted lockheed l tiny levin tristar airliner which had taken off earlier from vandenberg air force base in california the integrated space demane awareness technology demonstration satellite was successfully placed into a low-earth orbit by the pegasus. It'll be used to detect catalog monitor. Manmade objects in space from orbiting space junk through to the satellites of potential adversaries. And is this is a military mission tack. Our to as it's being called primary payload will likely observe satellites. Technically responsive launch is a concept that sixty introduced speed agility and flexibility in order to respond to dynamic changes in the space domain or an operational theatre. It's designed to insert or a place assets on much faster than standard time lines. In order to mate emerging military needs space launch delta thirty provided range support for the united states space forces tactically responsive launch to mission on sunday june thirteenth from vandenberg space for space the launch decision. Authority for this mission was colonel. Robert long space launch delta thirty commander space launch delta thirty provided launch permission range safety area clearing and whether support for the launch thirtieth operations support squadron typically provides a wide variety of support any launch here at the western range our whether officers provide on consoles support by evaluating weather conditions for the rocket launch to make sure that Conditions are safe. We also have intel operators that are on console making sure that there's no threats to the launch process from any adversaries and we also have our system maintenance Flight is also on standby to make sure all the equipment. The weather sensors are up and operational support the mission for this specific pegasus launch. We also add in. Our airfield supports our airfield. Team will be here providing services and support to the l. Ten eleven aircraft as well as the aircrew to make sure they get off the ground safely and then return safely after the mission is complete our whether flight has also then The challenge for them is to provide support at both the launch box area. To make sure the weather is safe for the pegasus rocket launch but also providing that that weather support at the airfield to make sure a safe departure and return for the aircraft and the routing between so looking at the weather from the airfield out to the launch box and making sure the weather conditions are safe. What there anything. That was particularly easy for us. So the aspects of the launched port. That'd be do. Typically a lot of that is very similar to what provide for this Besides the challenge of some of the the extra stuff that we do. In addition practicing launch launch evolution would actually kind of measured weeks. Not months and years was that a factor for us and the fact that this launched at twenty one day call up versus the typical months. Stand by for a launch that we can plan for the challenge was scheduling making sure. We had the personnel available to support the launch. When we didn't really know when it was going to happen Otherwise a lot of our processes are about the same and we're always prepared to support anything. Western range needs to do. Let's gauge the of feelings of the key member shurmur. This is this is something. You d do capability. Perfect for space for the air force. So how do you feel about definitely the members of the os s or excited to be part of this launch I know for a pegasus launches the first time in eight years. They've had a pegasus launch from here on the western range. So that's exciting to do something. We don't get to do very often. The tack oil to mission was executed by the small launch targets. Division within the space and missile system centers launch enterprise and the payload was sent into orbit using northrop grumman's pegasus rocket. This this is a whole new program for us and our operating on a much shorter time on so whereas the timeline would normally be you know. Years in development for payload and months of planning to get A launch date set and lead up to that date and actually have a successful mission. The entire time line for this program was much shorter. Specific mission for tech l. You know being part of a demonstration of a brand new capability just really exciting to be part of that as we start a new capability for the space force. Ju- fast felonious set satellite. Doesn't necessarily mean fast. In this case spacecraft that would normally of taking between two and five years develop and build was built on ready for launch in record time but that record.

"Nature. Follow on from earliest studies which have reached similar conclusions. The brightest star in the constellation orion builders is a semi regular variable red supergiant which represents the scorpion tail on orion shoulder located. Somewhere between five hundred and thirty and six hundred forty. Three light years away. Builders is the ninth brightest star in the night sky and one of the largest the most luminous stars visible with the unaided eye calmly could build us. these days. it's name before centuries of tortured.

That was before. The invention of the telescope win. Bell suddenly became visibly docker late. Twenty nineteen in italy twenty twenty. It had the astronomical community puzzled. It had suddenly in a very short space of time. Gone from being the ninth brightest star in the night sky. The being the twentieth brightest. In fact bill goes is dip in brightness was noticeable even with the unaided eye and that little gentleman bagwell montargis and colleagues to point the european southern observatory's very large telescope. Vlt in chile towards it the robs evasions revealed that the style was being partially concealed by a cloud of dust at discovery with solves the mystery of the great dimming and image from the two twenty nineteen when compared to an earlier image taken in january the same year showed that the stellar surface was significantly daca especially in the star southern region but astronomers weren't sure why the team continued observing the star during its great dimming event capturing two other never before seen images in january twenty twenty in march twenty twenty and by april twenty twenty the style had returned to. It's normal brightness. It was a rare occasion when astronomers were able to see the appearance of estar changing in real time on a scale of weeks bill. Gaza surface regularly changes giant bubbles of guests move shrink and swell within the star and you research confirms bill goes is great dimming was not an early sign that the style was hitting towards a dramatic an imminent supernova demise to find out more and you're dagley speaking with astronomer professor fred watson the mystery of the dipping of the brightness of beetlejuice oh beetle geeze or whatever you wanna call this particular star. They think they know what's happening. He indeed they do and they in this case is the european southern observatory whose telescopes are in northern chile and in particular these telescopes of the four unit telescopes of the. What's called the the very large telescope. Even though is four and in fact it was joined by four more for this as well to link up to make i kind of array of telescopes. Yes so the great dipping sometimes called of beetlejuice all battles years or however you want to pronounce it which is the bright star on the shoulder of orion and it's a red stars red supergiant star. It dimmed late in twenty nine and during early twenty twenty and normally when we observe stars always say is a point of light now. Beetlejuice is one of the few styles that you can actually resolve into a disc with very large telescopes. It's a super giant toys. He's big and it's all also only about five hundred light years away and that's a long way but still near enough that you can actually resolve this but you need specialist equipment and unique facilities like an instrument called sphere on the very large telescope. And there's also something. Vlt i which is the think called an interferometer which makes the telescope a little bit like a radio array where you spread the dishes over an area and you mimic a much larger telescope. And that's how they can operate So we now have this series of observations that have been released by scientists using the vlt. I think the lead part of this research has come from zebra twenty the paris observatory and also one of the institutions in belgium so a european publication but it uses a facility that australian astronomers access to courtesy of the strategic partnership that we have so. What's happened well. We've seen the release of a series of images of beetlejuice taken over that period when it was dimming and growing brighter and they show quite clearly. The what we're seeing is dust around the star dust which has produced a drop in temperature on a parts of the surface of beetlejuice and given us this darkening and that shows up very clearly in these images what they do in some ways they're reassuring because one of the possibilities for the dimming of beetlejuice was that it was about to turn into a supernova. Yeah we we. We know that one day the star will turn into a supernova. Is a candidate for it. But you know we're talking about over the next ten thousand two hundred thousand years and we've never seen what happens to a star in the immediately before it exploded as a supernova and one of the theoretical work that's been done on. It suggests that it would dim to start with so. That's one of the thoughts that maybe we're about to say this. Stop become the brightest object in the sky perhaps even brighter than the full moon. It would be certainly visible during the day but it looks as though that's not the case that what we're seeing is actually dust and i. It's funny when you alerted me. The story and i went to the website. First thing this morning. I read the headline mystery of beetle juice deep in brightness solved in a win a bet. It's dust this before. I started reading event but as a read through it i also read. That might have ejected like a giant gas bubble and that is part of the reason. This has happened. Yes it is. I mean this star is big enough to incorporate. The i think the of mars will be incited to fix weather. Son was maybe not quite as much as a giant star and how to regions barely hanging on. If i can put it that way and it's cool enough that it makes dust basically this is the carbon silicon things they actually solidify because it's cool enough to do for that to happen to get clouds of dust but also as you say bubbles of gas which are part of the normal process of stars life. The sun does on this zone beneath its visible surface which we call the convection zone and these were bubbles of gas are rising to the surface. But it's much more energetic and much more active in a star like the sun with a surface temperature of about five thousand. Five hundred degrees. Beetlejuice is much cooler and the energy levels much lower so he just got these giant bubbles guests polite cool teenagers wandering through a city centre. What's happening dude. They just wonder wonder through the atmosphere of the star. And don't do very much but they do shrink and swell and so it suggests exactly as you've said that some point there was a gas bubble. That actually was ejected by the the star and when that bubble of gas gets find from the surface it cools down enough. As i said two minutes ago that you can actually get solid dust denting from the gas. And that's what what's himself happened. There's a nice quote from one of the authors directly witnessed the formation of so-called stardust. The dust expelled from cool evolved stars. Such as ejection. We've just witnessed could go on to become the building. Blocks of terrestrial planets and life is very nice quote.

"Shows a correlation between the end of the sons eleven year solar cycle and a switch from el menia to la nina conditions in the pacific ocean. The findings were reported in the journal. Earth space science suggests that sola variability can drive seasonal weather variability earth if the connection holds up it could significantly improve the predictability of the largest el nino and la nina events which have a number of syria seasonal climatic effects over land for example eastern australia becomes drier and more drought-prone drain el nino event while it becomes wetter during learning. Yeah and the southern united states tends to be drier and warmer during lena or the northern. Us tends to be colder and wetter. The eleven year solar cycle involves a regular polarity flip of the sun's magnetic field at solar minimum magnetic north pole becomes magnetic south and the magnetic south pole becomes magnetic north. This coincides with a slow steady increase in sunspot activity solar flares and coronal mass ejections on the solar surface climaxing around solar maximum about five and a half years after solemn minimum the violent upheaval then gradually dissipates as the sun moves back into solar minimum. And the start of the next solar cycle the appearance and disappearance of sunspots the outwardly visible signs of solar variability have been observed by humans for hundreds of years the waxing and waning of the number of sunspots takes place over approximately eleven year cycles. The cyclists don't have distinct beginnings and endings. And it's this fuzziness. In the length of any particular solar cycle it's made it challenging for scientists to match up the eleven year solar cycle with changes happening on earth in this new study researchers rely on what they describe as a more precise two year clock of solar activity. The twenty two year cycle begins when they charge magnetic bands that wrap around the sun opinion. The sun's polar latitudes over the cycle. These bands migrate towards the equator causing sunspots to appear as they travel across the mid latitudes. The cycle ends when the band's meet in the middle east. Nyah leading one another in. What the authors call. Terminator event and these terminator events provide precise guiding posts for the end of one cycle. And the beginning of the next researches. Then impose these terminator events oversee surface temperatures temperatures in the tropical pacific. Dating back to the nineteen sixties. They found that the five terminator events that occurred between that time in two thousand ten. Two thousand eleven all coincided with a flip from an el nino when central eastern pacific sea surface temperatures are warmer than average to allow anaemia when central eastern pacific service. Temperatures are cooler than average the end of the most recent solar cycle which is unfolding now also coincided with the beginning of alanine. Your event is on the took a number of statistical analyses to determine the likelihood of this correlation. Being just a fluke. They found there was only one in five thousand chance or less at all five. Terminator events included in the study would randomly coincide with flip in ocean temperatures now that a sixth terminator event and the corresponding start of a new solar cycle has also coincided with the la nina event. The chance of a random occurrence is even more remote while the authors have yet to determine what causes this apparent correlation. they look at the influence of the sun's magnetic field on the amount of cosmic rays that penetrate the solar system and ultimately bombard the earth however a robust physical link between cosmic ray variations in climate. As yet to be determined. This space time. Still to come. Bill goes is great dimming and stylized next test flight slated for this month all that.

"The fabulous 99. Hi, Morgan. How will you find? How did you get to be first? Oh, I don't know. Maybe I was just lucky I'm affect. I had a nice lunch today with Mel. So I just thought I'd let you know. I have two questions for your meteorologist. I've been very fascinated with whether ever since I've been a kid, so I've got two different questions here. The first one is How much is the polar vortex influenced by La Nina are Tonino? Because I know last year we didn't have any snow it all in February and March, which was really unusual, and now we're in that seems like we're in that pattern right now. Yes, sir. That is a really good question. I think that there's still some research being done on the direct influence from La Nina or El Nino to the polar vortex. But what I can say is for our local forecasts, for instance, we kind of consider it almost a piece of the puzzle or an ingredient in the Mm hmm. That we bake for the winter and retake the tropics. We take the polar vortex. We take the ocean patterns off the Pacific and take bring, Um You know all these different patterns and we kind of way them as to where we think. Will will impact us the most and this winter. We are in a lot of media pattern, so we weigh it against that. We see that the Arctic oscillation, which is related to the polar vortex. It's right now fairly strong, so it tends to hold that colder bottle it up pretty well. But over the last few weeks, it has Weakened a little bit. And so we had that disruption that I mentioned before the break. So, yeah. So we might get some snow. Yeah. I mean, there's certainly a chance. You know We have some good cold this weekend. So it's just a matter of timing, too, is well, sure. Line up with the storm champ. Right. This second question is I have for you was if you ever read any books on tornadoes by Howard Bleustein, who was an M I t graduate. I haven't. I'll have tea. Oh, pick some up then. Um, always Ah, student here. I always love learning. So have toe make a note of that and try to pick them up. There's this fascinating books. Uh, we several years ago, we had a small tornado here in Stone. And how is actually within 100 yards of the of the funnel. When it came down and boy, I'll tell you something that was quite a sight to see. Especially with all the debris blowing around..
Despite La Nia, 2020 could be hottest year on record
"Just how far out of balance is earth's climate system when the numbers are in two thousand twenty is likely the first or second warmest year on record globally and that makes the past seven years the seven warmest years on record. It's an unprecedented run of warmth. In the global surface temperature record dating back to eighteen. Eighty penn state university professor. Michael man has spent a career tracking climate trans. Hi michael welcome back to climate cast. Thanks it's good to be with you. Paul let's start with twenty twenty. Where does it look like. Global temperatures will finish. There's a good chance that twenty twenty will be the warmest year on record. That's particularly surprising given. It's a la nina year. We have a la- nina event. The tropical pacific that tends to cool global temperatures a bit michael in a balanced climate system. We would expect a mix of warmer and colder than average years. How far out of balance is earth's climate system to have the past seven years be the warmest on record. Yeah well it's way out of balance and in fact a few years ago we estimated the likelihood that we would see these sort of streaks from chance alone in the absence of human caused warming and that probability is tiny one in ten thousand In one of our estimates as one article an article in discover magazine summarizing findings stated that the chances are a snowball's chance in hell basically is how likely we would see that from natural factors alone so when we include the human factor of increasing greenhouse gas concentrations in the models that we are able to reproduce these stretches of record warm temperatures that we're seeing we saw what you might call one benefit from the pandemic this year it looks like global greenhouse gas emissions are down about seven percent but i noticed the atmospheric. Co two levels aren't budging michael. What does that tell us about how much we need to lower emissions to get an atmospheric response in co two levels. Yeah it's sort of like a bathtub and you know if we turn the faucet down but it still on and the drain is closed. The water level won't stop rising until we turn the knob all the way off and that's essentially what we have to do. When it comes to the climate crisis we need to turn down that knob in reach what we call net zero no net carbon emissions into the atmosphere within a few decades and we need to bring carbon emissions down by roughly factor of to within the next decade if were to stay on that path where we keep warming below truly catastrophic levels more than a degree in half celsius or roughly three degrees
La Niña likely for this fall, winter season
"And now that we're just past the halfway point in the fall of 2020. We wanted to see what's behind the wild swings from stormy two beautiful from cold to hot to. Ah, hurricane season that just wouldn't stop. Wildfires, tornadoes and much, much more. And it appears the big factor is a weather pattern called La Nina. But what is Let Nina why does that determine the kind of whether we get And what will it mean to all of us up north and down south as we approach the winter of 2021. For that. Let's talk to a weather expert. Joining us now is Paul Pastor Lock, senior meteorologist and head of the Long range Forecasting department at AccuWeather. Paul. What is La Nina Nina is the cooling of the central eastern equatorial Pacific waters. It changes the overall up a little patterns across the Pacific and actually globally. But it usually initiates a stronger northern jet stream storm track, and when we see La Nina, we can get faster, moving stronger systems that effect northern areas of the United States. And the Southern areas tend to kind of ease back a little bit. So you tend to get some colder shots in the north, and it stays warmer and drier in the south. And so we're expecting a lot, Nina this fall season this fall into winter. Yes, and it's already Starting up and it's also La Nina could be very favorable for named tropical systems in the Atlantic Basin. And so that's a sign that we've already seen 20 named storms that La Nina is coming in full blast. I see and Paul what causes this? Is it just nature taking shape or what? The globe. Those three cycles, warming and cooling of the equatorial, the loss of energy out of the waters. You know, this up and down kind of balancing act goes on and you get these wings to take place from back and forth between El Nino and La Nina. So it's a cycle that goes through sometimes that we have to wonder. And there's other tell connections that can affect whether we go into La Nina or El

"To the weather now wild fire still burning in the West and Gerard What else are you keeping an eye on tonight? We've got a lot going on the tropics are starting to heat back up. We're have some rain and various parts of the country. But yeah, the fire's air. Still the issue here and Is just been non stop. Now. We do have to the tropics still going, But this is where we could use moisture more than anywhere. So right now active fires up and down the West Coast, still bringing a lot of smoke to most of California here as we continue to see record breaking season, and I'll show you just how big the record has really been going here. So active fire still a few in northern and western parts of Oregon as well as Northern California. And the winds have been carrying the smoke all the way down the West Coast where we're still seeing smoke all the way towards the Los Angeles area, but some of the bigger fire still up in the mountains and well, you can easily understand. After so many fires are the smoke is still lingering. Look at the comparison here. Between what we had last year's fire season about 200,000 acres or so, and the five year average doesn't even really get close to a million acre average. But this is 2025 times the five year average on the fires, so that is just unbelievable, or seeing almost four million acres burned and we could continue to see those numbers going up. Pretty easy to see why. I mean, look at this. We are C areas that are getting less than 25% of the 365 Day. Precipitation last 365 days a quarter. Of the normal rainfall in other places across the eastern half. The United States getting almost double so very unevenly spread as far as rainfall is concerned, therefore still drought conditions extreme to severe drought across the four Corners region notice. Southern California, specially Los Angeles is not exactly included in the drought, but the forecast is calling for them to be included here so persistent drought anywhere you see this sort of brown shade and then drought likely developing Southern California and across most of the great Plains as you see here, and that's going to be likely to cases move into December. Part of the reason is La Nina La Nina is the opposite of El Nino, which you may have heard off and that can lead to weather changes in the patterns here across the whole planet. But we're seeing that La Nina coming drier than average across the southern United States, including Southern California. One place that could get a break and we're already seeing that is the Pacific Northwest. We'll get wetter than average rainfall and, of course, wetter than average as we move Into the Midwest already seeing that, too. If you look carefully future rainfall, we're seeing rainfall developing over the next seven days. Toe likely clip at least Northern California but certainly some healthy amounts here. 234 inches of rain fall maybe locally five. Across parts of Oregon as well as Washington. So still a lot going on there. Alright. The other thing about Southern California the next three days, they're still getting what I'm just basically calling second summer. It's another round of still some pretty high heat into the nineties For all the cities here, Las Vegas still in the upper nineties, Phoenix still in the triple digits. It's just going to be hot. Not much rainfall and the winds are going to be picking up leading.

You're early thinking here What autumn is going to look like him? One in the world isn't going to get here. Well, Scott, using both the models and the anticipation of La Nina in the Pacific, it looks like we continue on nine month trend of above normal temperatures for the autumn on average. With rainfall near normal on average, but starting out a little bit wetter than normal in September and then trending dryer for October and November for the temperature's based on La Nina, we may have to wait for November to get ah, an entire month that averages cooler than normal. Wow. Okay. Do you see any cold front's coming in the in the near future that would at least lower the humanity for? Yeah, definitely talking about that coming up in the next five days.
