Sunny AND warm!

The weather, currently.

A summer fling? Almost. A push of very warm air from the south will help set up a beautiful fall day. Enjoy it, as it will feel much colder by the end of the week. It will be sunny as you start your Wednesday with a wake-up temperature near 9°C. The sunshine will continue for the day with a high of 22°C. That's over 5 degrees warmer than the norm. The wind will be light from the south 10-15km/h and the UV index will be 5 or moderate. Our sunrise time is 7:19 giving us 11 hours and 31 minutes of daylight

Wednesday night: mainly clear with a low of 11°C.

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.”
