The weather, currently.
Sunny skies step back onto the scene after a few flakes and drips
Sunny skies step back onto the scene after a few flakes and drips
Our uninspiring gloomy Tuesday will mark the low point of the work week weather-wise, as conditions are on the come up into Friday. A few light rain/snow showers scoot out of town by late morning, and as they pack the free clouds along with them, expect to be rocking the shades and feeling that 50°F sun on your face by tomorrow afternoon. Tomorrow night gets a tidbit chilly with overnight lows in the upper 20s and some possible frost on the car windshield to scrape off (or wiper, if you’re into low maintenance solid water removal techniques) Thursday morning. After the frosty start, we’ll enjoy another round of sunshine that will extend into Friday as well, before rain chances turn back up for the weekend. — Lauren Casey
What you need to know, currently.
Happy International Women’s Day! Today, we take time to celebrate and acknowledge the work of women fighting on the frontlines of the climate emergency. Women are leading transformative change in our communities around the globe.
As with almost all inequalities, gender inequality is exasperated by the climate crisis. A recent UN program revealed that 80 percent of those displaced by the climate crisis are female. Currently’s Zaria Howell wrote a story for 19th News about how natural disasters disproportionately affect women. Yessenia Funes wrote in Atmos about how trans women’s safety is put at a greater risk because of the climate emergency.
These are just a few examples of why women— particularly women from diverse and intersectional backgrounds— are essential in the climate fight. We need the perspectives of those most impacted by climate to lead us into a just and sustainable future. 
Here are a few voices and stories to follow and support today.
This #InternationalWomensDay, we must recognise that climate change is not gender neutral 👩

We asked female climate leaders around the world for their messages 🧵 #IWD
