Currently in Miami — May 26th, 2023

Afternoon showers and thunderstorms less severe than previous days; Aguaceros y tormentas eléctricas vespertinas menos intensas que en días anteriores

The weather, currently.

Not much will change weather-wise going into Friday as above-average moisture levels and low pressure near the surface will once again support showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. This low pressure system near Florida’s east coast is being monitored by the National Hurricane Center for potential tropical development. But thankfully it is forecast to move away from the state. Rain activity will diminish over the weekend as drier air moves in and we transition to a sea breeze driven pattern. Daytime temperatures will remain slightly warmer than normal in the upper 80s and lower 90s on Friday and through the weekend.

El tiempo, currently.

El tiempo no cambiará mucho para el viernes ya que los niveles de humedad por encima del promedio y la baja presión cerca de la superficie volverán a generar aguaceros y tormentas eléctricas en la tarde y la noche. Esta zona de baja presión está siendo monitoreada por el Centro Nacional de Huracanes por la posibilidad de desarrollo tropical. Afortunadamente se estará alejando del estado. La actividad de lluvia disminuirá durante el fin de semana a medida que ingrese aire más seco y hagamos la transición a un patrón impulsado por la brisa marina. Las temperaturas diurnas se mantendrán un poco más cálidas de lo normal en el rango alto de los 80 grados y el rango bajo de los 90 el viernes y durante el fin de semana.

What you need to know, currently.

There's no end in sight to the stretch of warm and dry late spring weather across the northern states, including the Northeast. It'll be a picture-perfect holiday weekend for a huge swath of the country.

The month of May will end on a warm and dry note, and that warm weather pattern will stretch into the first part of June, according to the latest NOAA outlook shown below.

This is one of those times to take a mental image of what perfect weather feels like. In terms of temperature, May will finish almost exactly average for the Northeast compared to historical norms, which is a huge relief given what's likely to be a hot summer coming up.

Lo que necesitas saber, currently.

No se vislumbra un final para el tramo de clima cálido y seco de fines de la primavera en los estados del norte, incluido el noreste. Será un fin de semana de vacaciones perfecto para una gran parte del país.

El mes de mayo terminará con una nota cálida y seca, y ese patrón de clima cálido se extenderá hasta la primera parte de junio, según la última perspectiva de la NOAA que se muestra a continuación.

Este es uno de esos momentos para tomar una imagen mental de cómo se siente el clima perfecto. En términos de temperatura, mayo terminará casi exactamente en el promedio para el noreste en comparación con las normas históricas, lo cual es un gran alivio dado que es probable que se avecine un verano caluroso.

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.
