The weather, currently.
Tomorrow marks the end of meteorological fall— all over the globe cities are breaking weather records.
Denver, CO broke the record for their longest streak without snow. This is also the latest “first snow” on record for the city. (A first snow is defined by measurable snow, flurries don’t count!)
Chris Bianchi
Barring something unexpected today, Denver's likely to finish with its:

-1st snow-less fall on record (meteorological fall: Sep. 1-Nov. 30)
-10th snow-less November on record
-Already clinched its latest 1st measurable snowfall

Seattle experienced their wettest fall on record, thanks to a handful of atmospheric rivers that impacted the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia. BC is still dealing with an ongoing flooding disaster due to the intense rain.

Welcome to the wettest fall on record, Seattle!

We’ve received 18.83” of rain since Sept. 1. That’s the most ever observed in a Seattle fall (defined as Sept. 1-Nov. 30), eclipsing the old mark of 18.61” from the fall of 2006.
Several cities including Boston, and the Twin Cities, saw record breaking warm fall seasons. Overall, it is looking like this year may be one overall warmest on record
The end of meteorological fall also marks the end of hurricane season. The 2021 hurricane season was the third most active season on record.

The BC flooding disaster continues.

Seattle just has its wettest autumn on record.

We are in a climate emergency. https://t.co/kdZZIBVOEB

I was really blown away by how much of the Western pine/Douglas fir forest is no longer reproducing due to increased heat. This biome shift from trees to brush is now firmly established consensus https://t.co/yzCDTXyeMM
In the U.S. West, wildfires are wiping out major forests at alarming rates. In the past, after normal wildfire events, forests would regenerate. However rising temperatures driven by climate change is making it harder for new growth to survive. In some areas scientists say that pine and Douglas fir forests may never return. 
Rising temperatures causes seedlings working to regrow forests to shrivel, leaving room for grasses and bushes to take over and consequently make it even more difficult for new tree growth.
“The earlier we start dealing with the root problem, climate change, the better chance we have,” Veblen said. “If you want to keep these forests, keep fossil fuels in the ground.”
