Currently in Philadelphia — November 17, 2023: A cooler weekend

Plus, here's how to register for Currently's new weather service.

The weather, currently.

Brief rain brings a cooler weekend

Maybe it’s just me, but so far November hasn’t felt all that different from October. Just a lukewarm soup of “I guess it sort of feels like Fall”. Our brief warm spike this week reaches its peak today, with a high of 68˚F on Friday. Humidity and cloud cover will be high throughout the day, and the evening forecast finishes off with a little rainy nightcap — less than 0.1 inches beginning around 7pm. Things are expected to cool off on Saturday and Sunday, with temperatures in the mid-50s and some lingering rain as well as higher winds. Good weekend to do nothing in particular.

What you need to know, currently.

Everyone deserves to thrive. Everyone is worthy of a better world. That’s why we’re building a weather service for the climate emergency.

Currently’s new weather service is now live. In the weeks and months ahead, we’ll be continually adding more features and opening up more slots as we develop the service.

But for now, space is limited in the weather service because I want to make sure we can provide the highest quality service we possibly can while we work to refine the system with your input.

If you’d like to put your name on the waiting list, be sure to fill out our baseline survey if you haven’t already which will hold your spot in line.

Our goal — as always — is to co-create the most personalized, most informative weather service that exists. And, above all, to make this service accessible, equitable, and resilient enough to bring safety and joy to the climate emergency.
