Currently in Boston — June 29th, 2022

The weather, currently.

Gorgeous June weather continues but it's getting warmer

After a gorgeous June day clear skies will allow temperatures to fall back to the 50s. This is probably one of the final nights we will be that cool until sometime in August. It doesn't mean it can happen again but we're not going to see the regular prolonged comfortable weather. Indeed temperatures tomorrow will be in the mid 80s and stay in the 60s at night the rest of the week. There might be a quick sprinkle Wednesday night before somewhat more humid and warmer air arrives for Thursday. Highest will stay under 90°F on that day but be in the mid-90s by Friday with blazing sunshine.

What you need to know, currently.

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.”
