Analyzing the amount of precipitation each month, we see high-risk months for the occurrence of risk events (floods, torrential) and one risk factor is the occurrence of temperature inversions that can trigger sudden melting of snow and flash floods triggered by, torrents, which can have a great impact on the destruction of forest roads, bridges and breaking of trees.

Whitetails are born with the ability to detect pressure and other general weather conditions, and they prepare and protect themselves when they "know" bad weather is coming their way Man, on the other hand, must monitor pressure changes, weather systems, temperature fluctuations, wind speeds, prognostic charts, wind gradient maps, temperature inversions, cloud types, etc, all through the use of the Internet or other weather-related tools.
Warming Arctic air is causing temperature inversions, causing a light refraction which makes the sun to appear to be in a different position.
