Currently in Miami — May 25th, 2023

Scattered to numerous showers and potentially severe thunderstorms; Dispersos a numerosos aguaceros y tormentas eléctricas potencialmente severas

The weather, currently.

Thursday will be a continuation of Wednesday’s stormy weather as a front pushes through South Florida and is followed behind by a surface low pressure system. Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will occur throughout South Florida once again. While the majority of the strong to severe storms were concentrated to the north on Wednesday, Miami and Ft Lauderdale will experience the bulk of the storm activity on Thursday. The most severe storms could produce damaging wind gusts and hail. These may also be slow-moving which could lead to localized flooding in the metro areas. This unsettled weather is expected to continue on Friday and, to a lesser extent, over the weekend.

El tiempo, currently.

El jueves será una continuación del tiempo tormentoso del miércoles a medida que un frente avanza a través del sur de Florida y es seguido por un sistema de baja presión. Dispersos a numerosos aguaceros y tormentas eléctricas ocurrirán de nuevo en todo el sur de Florida. Si bien la mayoría de las tormentas fuertes a severas se concentraron hacia el norte el miércoles, Miami y Ft Lauderdale experimentarán la mayor parte de la actividad de tormentas el jueves. Las tormentas más severas podrían producir ráfagas de viento dañinas y granizo. Los aguaceros también serán de movimiento lento, lo que podría provocar inundaciones localizadas en las áreas metropolitanas. Se espera que este tiempo inestable continúe el viernes y, en menor medida, durante el fin de semana.

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 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.
