Currently in Miami — May 31st, 2023

Widespread showers and scattered thunderstorms could produce localized flooding; Aguaceros generalizados y tormentas eléctricas dispersas podrían producir inundaciones localizadas

The weather, currently.

A risk of excessive rainfall will continue throughout South Florida on Wednesday and Thursday that could deliver over 3 inches of rain to Ft Lauderdale and over 2 inches to Miami by Friday morning. Pockets of a half a foot of rain cannot be ruled out. Developing low pressure in the middle and upper levels of the atmosphere over the Gulf of Mexico, along with an increase in moisture, will incur numerous to widespread showers and scattered thunderstorms across the entire southern half of the peninsula. Some of the stronger storms could produce strong and gusty winds as well as frequent lightning, and flooding is likely in vulnerable areas along the metro area. Conditions should improve over the weekend as drier air moves in.

El tiempo, currently.

Un riesgo de lluvia excesiva continuará en todo el sur de la Florida el miércoles y el jueves, lo que podría generar más de 3 pulgadas de lluvia en Ft Lauderdale y más de 2 pulgadas en Miami para la mañana del viernes. No se puede descartar hasta medio pie de lluvia en algunos puntos. Baja presión en los niveles medio y alto de la atmósfera que se desarrolla sobre el Golfo de México, junto con un aumento de la humedad, generará aguaceros numerosos o generalizados y tormentas eléctricas dispersas en toda la mitad sur de la península. Algunas de las tormentas más fuertes podrían producir vientos fuertes, así como relámpagos frecuentes, y es probable que se produzcan inundaciones en áreas vulnerables a lo largo del área metropolitana. Las condiciones deberían mejorar durante el fin de semana a medida que entre aire más seco.

What you need to know, currently.

Just like Earth, the Sun has an atmosphere and weather. Right now the sun's weather is becoming super active, with new sunspots and solar flares happening almost every day.

The sun is now approaching the peak of Solar cycle 25, which means that for the next 2-4 years, there will be more frequent displays of the Northern Lights and satellites and radios will be at greater risk of periodic disruptions. Particularly intense solar eruptions can also cause power outages — the most famous of which may have been in Quebec in 1989 which affected millions of people.

There's also a lot more in space now since the last 11-year solar cycle, which means that space weather is more important than ever.

Lo que necesitas saber, currently.

Al igual que la Tierra, el Sol tiene una atmósfera y un clima. En este momento, el clima del sol se está volviendo súper activo, con nuevas manchas solares y erupciones solares que ocurren casi todos los días.

El sol ahora se acerca al pico del ciclo solar 25, lo que significa que durante los próximos 2 a 4 años, habrá exhibiciones más frecuentes de la aurora boreal y los satélites y las radios correrán un mayor riesgo de interrupciones periódicas. Las erupciones solares particularmente intensas también pueden causar cortes de energía, el más famoso de los cuales puede haber sido en Quebec en 1989, que afectó a millones de personas.

También hay mucho más en el espacio ahora desde el último ciclo solar de 11 años, lo que significa que el clima espacial es más importante que nunca.

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 John, 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.
