Currently in Philadelphia — November 21, 2023: Rainstorm

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

The weather, currently.

A good old-fashioned rainstorm

After a calm and sunny start to the week, a low pressure system is slated to arrive today and shake things up. In other words: a hard rain’s-a-gonna fall. You can expect a cloudy morning which will turn into a quite rainy afternoon. The rain should last through the evening and continue overnight, with up to 2 inches of precipitation possible. Temperatures will reach a high around 49˚F, with chilly winds that will be a bit stronger than yesterday at 10-12 miles per hour. My work is starting to pile up ahead of the holiday, so knowing I’d be stuck inside anyway makes me feel a little less bummed.

What you need to know, currently.

We’re out of time for 1.5°C. I’m not sure what else to say. 💔

What you can do, 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.
