(Alexandros Maragos/Getty Images) It takes less than two weeks for half of the planet's annual precipitation to fall. That is, 50 percent of Earth's rain, snow and ice each year falls in the 12 wettest days, according to a new study. The deluges are likely to become even more concentrated by the end of the century, researchers reported Oct. 19 in the journal Geophysical Research Letters. Researchers already know that climate change will likely lead to an overall increase in precipitation, study leader Angeline Pendergrass, a scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado, said in a statement. The new study suggests that this extra rain will fall in the least helpful way possible. "What we found is that the expected increases happen when it's already the wettest — the rainiest days get rainier," Pendergrass said.

On the latest episode of Vulture podcast “Good One,” Forte dished on his Season 4 finale cliffhanger, which saw a large and scary-looking group of people emerge alive from a secret underground bunker. They were the source of body heat tracked by Tandy’s (Forte) brother Mike (Jason Sudeikis), and they were about to change everything for the gang.
