Re-visiting a few sites from last week with new information, this week we take a look at:
*Cleaning up plastic pollution and using social media to spread the word
*Smoke from Mexican wildfires may head into the Mid-South, and a few great air quality and atmospheric data websites to use to track that and other phenomenon
*Local events including clean-up efforts from Wolf River Conservancy; supporting Project Greenfork and the latest events from Memphis City Beautiful and the Memphis/Shelby County Office of Sustainability
Latter half of the weekend allowed us to dry out… right before more rain arrives. More on what could be a soggy week ahead, along with a look at how YOU can get ready for severe weather in the Mid-South.
All that and a lot more with meteorologist Austen Onek- WREG on WREG News Channel 3 exclusive video weatherblog Weather Overtime.
