into the winter:

    New Yorkers can look forward to a preview of spring in the middle of this week — but experts say not to put your winter coat away just yet. Temperatures are expected to reach the 60s everyday from Tuesday through Friday, forecasters predict. “Tuesday is when we’ll probably hit the 60 degree mark, and I think we’re going to be there for about three or four days,” Accuweather senior meteorologist Bill Degert told the Post. “To see the last time we were in the 60s, you have to go back to Christmas Day… so it’s been a long time coming.” After a colder-than-average weekend, the weather will begin to turn the corner on Monday, before the mercury rises sharply on Tuesday and warm, sunny conditions thaw out the city, according to the Accuweather forecast. “Wednesday and Thursday are probably tied for the best days. Tuesday, we get up to 60...
    (CNN)A winter storm that has pummeled much of the United States will move through the Northeast on Tuesday, leaving a trail of destruction across some states unaccustomed to such harsh weather.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has extended its Winter Spare the Air Alert into and wood burning ban into Tuesday, with unhealthy air quality expected to continue. Officials said a high pressure system over Northern California will act like a lid, trapping smoke at ground level, the air district said. The worst air quality impacts are likely to be in the Santa Clara Valley, with winds expected to be light, along with cold temperatures overnight. “In the midst of a pandemic, it is more important than ever for residents to protect their respiratory health by not burning wood,” said Air District executive officer Jack Broadbent. The Air District says wood smoke contains carcinogenic substances such as particulate matter and carbon monoxide, which has been linked to serious respiratory illnesses and increased heart attack risk. Fine particulates in the smoke is especially harmful for...
    A woman living near the North Pole shared the great lengths she must go to just to walk her dog in the middle of the afternoon.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Florida reported less than ten-thousand new coronavirus cases on Sunday for the first time in days. However, a high percentage of those new cases are coming from South Florida and health experts are warning about a winter surge in the weeks and months to come “This is not just the worst public health event. This is the worst event that this country will face, not just from a public health side,” said Dr. Deborah Birx with the White House COVID task force. “Every state needs to be critically informing their state population that the gatherings that we saw in Thanksgiving will lead to a surge. It will happen this week and next week. And we can not go into the holiday season, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa with this same kind of attitude, that those, those gatherings don’t apply to me. They apply to everybody.” “We won’t have a...
    LINCOLN SQUARE — The city’s shared streets program has packed up for the winter. City crews removed cones, barriers and signs restricting vehicle access to neighborhood streets over the weekend, reopening them to regular traffic due to predicted snow forecasts, according to Michael Claffey, a spokesman for the city’s transportation department. The pilot program launched in May, limiting car traffic on a section of Leland Avenue in Ravenswood and opening the street to pedestrians and cyclists. It was designed to give cooped-up neighbors a safe, socially distant space to enjoy the summer weather during the coronavirus pandemic. More shared streets were rolled out to other neighborhoods across the city throughout the summer and fall, while the Leland Avenue shared street was extended twice. Ald. Matt Martin (47th) long has been outspoken in wanting to expand access to and create infrastructure for cyclists and pedestrians on the city’s streets. The first...
    (CBS4) – The latest series of storms will bring snow to Colorado that is likely stick around, but experts say we’re going to need an epic snow year to recover from historic drought conditions.  “From a water resources perspective and a drought perspective, we’re definitely not in good shape going into this winter because the summer was so warm and dry.” Said Russ Schumacher, Colorado State Climatologist and Director of the Colorado Climate Center at CSU. “If you look at places like Wolf Creek, they’re down about 12 inches of precipitation since April and they’ve gotten three or so in this system, will get maybe another inch or so in liquid of the snow, so that definitely helps cut into that deficit, but we’re still way behind going into the winter.”  The first storm Saturday night into Sunday, favored Southwest Colorado, brining 17 inches of powder to feet to the...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – As Minnesota continues to see a rise in COVID-19 cases, we’re also starting to see some businesses take action. As winter sets in, many restaurants are choosing to close, but it’s only temporary, with the hopes of coming back in the spring stronger than ever. Dark Horse Bar and Grill in the heart of downtown St. Paul will only be pouring and serving for a few more days. “I can’t fight something that’s invisible. If I could take COVID out in the alley and give it the left hook I would,” said Paddy Whelan, co-owner of the restaurant. He made a decision to close his restaurant down for the winter in order to save it for the future. “I need long term stability and that’s what I want to have for my staff and the way for me to do that is to close. It’s the only way,”...

    A high-ranking government whistleblower who alleges the Trump administration fumbled its coronavirus response resigned on Tuesday, saying he has been forced out. Lawyers for Dr. Rick Bright said he was sidelined at the National Institutes of Health, where he had been transferred this spring after being ousted as head of a biodefense agency. In a May complaint, Bright had argued that the nation desperately needed a comprehensive national testing strategy, and said in an addendum on Tuesday that 'without this strategy in place today, the country is truly 'flying blind' into a very challenging winter for public health.' Attorneys Debra Katz and Lisa Banks said Bright's NIH superiors ignored a national coronavirus testing strategy that Bright developed because he had become politically toxic within the Trump administration. Dr. Rick Bright resigned from his new role at at the National Institutes of Health, where he had been transferred this spring...
    The Deets is a weekday morning dose of commentary — delivered at 7 a.m. — from sports columnist Dieter Kurtenbach that wraps up everything important in the world of sports and looks forward to another crazy day ahead. The Big Thing When the Reds decided not to tender Kevin Gausman a contract this past offseason, they didn’t think they were losing a steady, reliable starting pitcher. No, they thought they were releasing a 28-year-old who had a 5.72 ERA in 31 games last year. A Quadruple-A guy. And when the Giants signed the free-agent to a one-year, $9-million contract not too long after that non-tender, they surely didn’t think they were signing the pitcher who should be the team’s ace for the 2020 postseason. But that’s exactly what’s happened. In a year defined by the unexpected, this is a pleasant surprise. Well, except for the Reds. In the middle...
    (CNN)A study published in the July 23 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine found that the anti-influenza drug baloxavir marboxil significantly reduced transmission of influenza among people living in the same house. The news comes just in time for the 2020-2021 flu season, which threatens to coincide with a new upswing of Covid-19 infections in countries this fall and winter. The confluence of these two viruses could overwhelm already strained medical resources and complicate testing procedures, particularly given that the illnesses they lead to have remarkably similar symptoms. A previous study, published in the Lancet in June, proved that a single dose of baloxavir was just as effective as Tamiflu (oseltamivir) at shortening the duration of the flu when administered twice daily for five days. But the newer July study is perhaps even more significant, as it shows the role that baloxavir plays in reducing the spread...
    Matt Reeves’ upcoming film The Batman serves to reboot the universe once again, and with a world bustling with villains. While Robert Pattinson is under the cowl for the October 2021 blockbuster, the cast is set to include Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle, Paul Dano as The Riddler, Colin Farrell as The Penguin, and potentially a few more surprises. Reeves imagined enough nooks and crannies in this expansive new version of cinematic Gotham City that Warner Bros. Pictures’ parent company WarnerMedia wants him to keep telling the story in a serialized fashion: An original DC drama, “set in the Gotham City police department,” is headed to HBO Max, the company said in a new announcement. Reeves, Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire), The Batman producer Dylan Clark, and Warner Bros. Television are behind the new series, which “will build upon the motion picture’s examination of the anatomy of corruption in Gotham...
