Currently in Boston — November 22, 2023: Some rain, then a dry weekend

Plus, some big news ... on the road to building a weather service for everyone.

The weather, currently.

Some rain, then a dry weekend

Clouds will thicken overnight and there will be precipitation moving into the area before morning. Because it's cold enough there could be some wet snow at the very beginning but it will change to rain with temperatures in the 30s.

It is a wet start to Wednesday with temperatures in the 40s to near 50 in the afternoon. Over Cape Cod in the islands there is a wind advisory posted for some Gusty winds. Some of these could be strong enough to produce very widely scattered power outages. Thursday for Thanksgiving will be bright and blustery. Temperatures will be in the 40s to near 50°. It also looks dry for most of the weekend. Have a great Thanksgiving!

What you need to know, currently.

Some big news,

We just launched Currently Weather Service's first public offering! We’re hoping to raise $10,000 between now and Small Business Saturday. Your investment will make the difference in building Currently into a driving force for climate justice.

Starting at $100, you can become a direct investor in Currently and help us move forward with confidence.

We decided to partner with Honeycomb because they’re a platform that allows small businesses like us to raise money from our community instead of a bank. However, we’re not asking for donations like a Kickstarter or a GoFundMe - you actually get to invest in us — and you will own a part of the work we do together.

Thank you so much for supporting our important work to continue building an innovative personalized weather service for the climate emergency.

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.
