  1. The higher elevations along the Wasatch mountains ( Provo and SLC area of Utah ) also got snow last night. Looks around 8,000 to 9,000 feet or so. Any lower was rain.

  2. Part of Earth’s Magnetic Field is Getting Weaker in ‘Vigorously’ Developing Anomaly, Scientists Say

    Part of Earth’s magnetic field appears to be getting weaker, scientists have said. Using satellite data, researchers believe an “anomaly” in the South Atlantic may have split in two, with the eastern section “developing vigorously.”

    Earth’s magnetic field is generated by movements within the planet’s molten iron core. It stretches out into space and provides a barrier around us that protects Earth against harmful radiation from the sun. When the magnetic field is stronger, it blocks more radiation. When it is weaker, more radiation reaches the planet’s surface.

    The magnetic field is constantly moving. It strengthens and weakens as part of normal fluctuations. According to the European Space Agency (ESA), the magnetic field has lost around 9 percent of its strength over the preceding two centuries. One section of the magnetic field has been found to have weakened considerably since 1970.
