A recent BMJ Case Report outlined the story of a 59-year-old woman who went to A&E after experiencing pain when urinating and abdominal pain. Her symptoms were consistent with urinary tract infection (UTI, commonly referred to by some as cystitis) for which she was prescribed antibiotics and painkillers.

The science theme tonight is Modokis for which we, to a large extent, thank JAMSTEC. We will also cover the mature and declining phase of this quasi-La Nina which NOAA recently, just as the quasi-La Nina was entering the decline phase, declared "La Nina Conditions Apply" which was eerily similar to the call reversed a week later of the El Nino of 2014/2015. This raises questions. The late call, which itself was debatable, could simply be a debatable interpretation that should have been made two months earlier, a rush to take credit, or something much more concerning. Of course we will tonight also cover the forecasts for the U.S. and World. Lots to cover for a week without a major NOAA data release.
