The weather, currently.

Still cold, but less windy

I was as surprised as anyone to see some icy white covering the ground yesterday morning. Thus begins my favorite Yuletide tradition of walking gingerly to the car while balancing a cup of coffee and trying not to slip and break my ankle. The cold continues today, with temperatures reaching a high of 37˚F. But cloud cover should be in the 20 percents throughout the day, so there’ll be plenty of sun. Winds should be calmer, and while some areas saw a little snow yesterday, the Weather Service is saying it was just a one-off. So sledding will have to wait for another day.

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.
