Currently in Chicago — November 21, 2023: Rainy then all clear for the holiday

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

The weather, currently.

Rain tonight and tomorrow, then clear

Monday night will be wet and messy out there, gang. Fortunately, most of it won’t get here until after 8pm so the commute shouldn’t be too awful, but we could have up to an inch of total precipitation before it blows out of here by noon on Tuesday. If you can hold off on your travel for another day, it will be dry and sunny through Thanksgiving in the Chicagoland area, then dry and cloudy and cool over the holiday weekend… perfect for staying in and enjoying those leftovers. Lows tonight around 42, high near 49 on Tuesday, and gusts of wind up to 30mph through tomorrow night.

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.
