Currently in NYC — May 25th, 2023

The weather, currently.

Mostly sunny and a bit cooler

We stay a little cooler on Thursday after that cold front rolled through. Our morning will be breezy with a chilly wind out of the north but that dissipates in the afternoon. We’ll have mostly sunny skies and a high in the upper 60s. It will be one of those days where the shade will feel invigorating and cool. The sunny side of the street, though, will have you sweating with a UV Index of 10. If you’re heading out of town early to jumpstart your long weekend, you’ll have no weather issues to worry about. Summer, here we come.

What you need to know, currently.

After his laughably awkward launch of his presidential campaign on Twitter, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis went on Fox News and was asked about the role of climate change.

"The hurricanes have not increased in number," DeSantis said, which is of course wrong and will keep getting wronger especially if we keep electing anti-science bigots like DeSantis.

On the one hand, it's good that climate change is a front-and-center issue in America in 2023 even on Fox News. On the other hand, I can't even with this bullshit.

If you'd like to support frontline climate advocates in Florida that are doing the intersecting work of countering the racialized climate destruction of the DeSantis Administration, there are few organizations better than the CLEO Institute in Miami.

What you can do, currently.

Currently is transitioning to become an entirely member-funded organization.

We're doing this to boost our organization's prospects for growth and sustainability, and to align more with our founding ethos of becoming an independent weather service for the climate emergency.

Paid members will have a truly premium weather experience. Here's some of what we have planned:

  • Text directly with Stacy, who will personally answer your weather questions and give you a customized forecast on demand.
  • Our first weather app, which will put your daily weather in the context of climate change, no matter where you are, anywhere in the world.
  • Reader-ownership — an experiment in direct democracy so that Currently can remain accountable to our most important stakeholders, you, the readers.

We have SO MANY more exciting features planned, but we can't do this without your direct support. Your paid membership makes Currently possible.
