beneath pink skies by the taj mahal. or as the sun sets in the city of angels. hello there we've got a few more violent storms brewing over parts of south america they've been very very pokey particularly across parts of one of the reason the last few days and now you can see the clouds back and it's giving us a fairly hefty ray as this system sweeps its way northward it will get even more intense as we head through into friday so thursday yes we'll see what weather here and that's what's its way northward becoming a bit more intense before eventually moving away from the coast but then it's fun today where we've got to see the worst of the rain those downpours really do look very heavy and could cause a fair amount of disruption towards the west with something a fair amount of cloud here but still will get to around twenty one degrees for the central americas here it's actually fairly subdued weather wise at the moment no
3:59 pm
also a great deal of cloud showing up on the satellite picture plenty of sunshine instead and i think that's the way it's going to stay as we head through the next few days really the exception where we're going to see most of the wet weather will be his stretching down into panama it looks like here it's going to be pretty wet during the day on thursday and then on friday that just pushes a little bit further towards the north for north america well things are turning pretty cold for many of us now through under this blanket of cloud here would be a behind it digging down from canada so many quite chilly for the northern parts minus five is the maximum in calgary. the weather sponsored by qatar race. subzero temperatures stream well to. the right. this is where the hard part because of the extraordinary journey. to touch it you still. wouldn't rejoice. to know you know there's no oxygen. just to experience
4:00 pm
a simple pleasure of. risking you don't. get stuck at this time on al-jazeera. one of the really special things about working for al-jazeera is that even as a camera woman i get to have so much empathy and contribution to a story i feel we cover this region better than anyone else working for it is you know it's very challenging there but it is particularly because you have a lot of people that are divided on political issues we are we the people we live to tell the real stories i'll just mandate is to deliver in-depth journalism we don't feel inferior to the audience across the globe. this is al-jazeera.
