Greetings everyone! I hope all of you are doing well. The tropical Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico are quiet for the time being. In the meantime, the eastern Pacific is still active with Hurricane Roslyn forecast to make landfall in western Mexico at Category 4 intensity. For the eastern Pacific and Atlantic, there are several more weeks in the hurricane season. Therefore, I’ll continue sharing helpful information on preparing an emergency kit that will be helpful in any tropical storm or hurricane scenario. There are many essential reads this week, so let’s get started.
- Let’s start with a very intriguing read about how early life on Mars could have been obliterated.
- For a change, here’s some good news. “A Boom in Renewable Energy Has Blunted the Global Rise in Emissions.”
- This should come as no surprise. “Extreme weather events have a significant negative impact on skin disease.” This poses a significant threat to global dermatological health, as many skin diseases are climate sensitive.
- If a rare third-year La Niña transpires, it will have substantial climate impacts around the globe.
- This is an essential read for anyone concerned about the coming winter weather in the Northern Hemisphere. “Winter weather predictions abound, but which should you trust?”
- Take a look at these startling views of the USA’s Mississippi river showing how low the water levels have dropped during the ongoing drought across much of North America.
- Here’s a look at this weeks US Drought Monitor. With few exceptions, drought conditions continue to worsen across much of the contiguous USA With parts of the plains states and central California being the hardest hit. In the near term, there’s little substantial rainfall in recent weather outlooks for the coming weeks.
- Last but certainly not least, if you’re looking for hurricane preparedness information, here’s your one stop website for everything you need to know for before, and after the storm. This all inclusive website from NOAA will help you prepare for the storm and tell you how to stay safe afterwards. The infographics below will help you prepare an emergency kit and use discretion when you come across questionable weather information/forecasts/hyperbole when online or using social media.
