Currently in Boston— April 7th, 2022

The weather, currently.

More rain developing Thursday night

There will be a lull between our rain events overnight, with some drizzle and spotty showers still possible. Temperatures will be in the 40s, with a raw wind off the water. I don't expect much more than some drizzle or a couple of showers, and it will approach 50° in the afternoon. A steadier round of showers will arrive overnight Thursday, with some thunder possible. Rain comes to an end Friday morning. The end of the work week does feature milder temperatures with highs at or a little above 60. The start of the weekend is unsettled with clouds building on Saturday and a few more showers. Sunday will be a drier day.

What you need to know, currently.

Today, we’re embarking on a new phase of the effort to rapidly scale up climate action. We’re launching the next chapter of Currently, a weather service — and news hub — for the climate emergency.

Starting today, Currently will publish stories from our team of journalists and contributors around the world about extreme weather and its climate context. Our stories highlight local work and experiences during the climate emergency, profile individuals doing essential work to fight climate change, and show us all the ways extreme weather ties into our everyday lives.

At Currently, we exist not only to shine light on those communities and their struggles, but also to build a line of defense for future storms. We exist not only to amplify the voices of people on the front lines of climate change, but to act as an early warning system for climate disaster and an advocate for fundamental systemic change in all aspects of society.

Our vision is of a world where “a liberated, habitable and joyful future for people and the environment alike” is achievable for every single person on the planet, regardless of who they are, where they live, or what language they speak.
