In Alaska, barrier islands and spits shelter coastlines from storms, protecting coastal communities and providing habitat for native species. These features are prone to shifts from year-to-year, but these shifts are becoming more pronounced with climate change.

By studying how barriers change in the compressed time scales at Arctic latitudes—where waters are ice-free for just three months a year—we can potentially use them to study how barriers elsewhere will respond to climate change. http://ow.ly/LWSW50GQUq4

Dry and quiet conditions continue overnight tonight and into tomorrow morning, but a weak system sweeps through the state starting Thursday afternoon. This brings a mix of light rain and light snow showers to northern Nevada. Rainfall and snowfall totals won't be impressive, but you may want to be aware of possible wet roads when showers pass through. Elsewhere can expect dry weather to continue as we head through the end of the week!

A mostly dry cold front has swept through the region, and temperatures have cooled down (particularly across northern Nevada) compared to yesterday. Overnight lows tonight are on track to be about 10 to 20 degrees colder than last night! Cloud cover increase Wednesday afternoon/evening ahead of an approaching weak system for Thursday.

At least the sun seemed to take a tiny bit of the edge off of the cold today...that's the silver lining, right?

A Loveliness of Ladybugs on #WildlifeWednesday!

Ladybugs, ladybugs, why are you here? You're grouped all together, each fall, every year. Have you ever noticed that 🐞 can be found in large groups this time of year? This is because 🐞 like to meet up in clusters before hibernating for the winter. It is a chance to meet other 🐞 looking for 💘 to share a nice winter 🏠 with. #FunFact - the collective noun for 🐞 is a "loveliness".

“Ladybug” is a curious name. The ladybug’s healthy appetite for plant-destroying pests, like aphids and mites, have linked it to the beneficial Virgin Mary (Our Lady). The second half of its name is an 🇺🇸 quirk. 🐞 are not actually true bugs (Hemiptera); they are beetles (Coleoptera) in the family, Coccinellidae. Outside the U.S., they are known, more accurately, as ladybird beetles.

When out on #YourPublicLands this fall🍂, keep an eye out for the little colorful beetle associated with good luck. If you happen to come across a loveliness consider yourself very lucky indeed!
