The weather, currently.

Scattered showers and a risk of thunderstorm

Some rain showers are finally on the way! There is a weak cold front that will push in tomorrow, which will generate mainly cloudy skies early in the morning as well as some scattered showers. The wake-up temperature will be near 17°C. We should see a few sunny breaks through the day, but clouds will dominate the skies. Again, some scattered showers will redevelop for the afternoon with a risk of a thunderstorm. Unfortunately, this will not be a widespread rain event - which is something that the region really needs. The high will be 24°C.  The wind will be light from the west, and the UV index will be 6 or high.

Wednesday night: mainly clear and cool - a comfortable night with no AC required, the low 13°C.

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.”
