Currently in Boston — September 28, 2022

The weather, currently.

Stunning weather continues.

Crystal Blue skies remained over New England Tuesday and the patterns going to continue for the rest of the week. Temperatures overnight will fall down into the 50s for a comfortable night of sleeping. More Sunshine is around for Wednesday with highs within a few degrees of 70. It looks as though it is still sunny for Thursday and Friday although it will be a bit cooler with readings in the mid-60s quite perfect for the time of year. Hurricane Ian will continue to move towards Florida Wednesday morning likely impacting the area south of Tampa especially near Fort Myers. The rain from this storm will probably never reach New England.

Evacuations are underway in Florida as Hurricane Ian moves in. Hurricane Ian, which is now a Category 3 hurricane, is expected to grow to a Category 4 by Tuesday afternoon, before making landfall in Florida’s Gulf Coast on Wednesday. Thousands across the state are under mandatory evacuation orders.

Since leaving Cuba, the storm’s track has moved slightly east — dangerous Hurricane weather is still expected along the West coast. Threats include flooding, hurricane force winds, tornadoes, power outages and storm surges. Storm surges south of Tampa Bay in Sarasota are now expected to reach up to 12 feet.

According to Currently’s Hurricane expert, Glenn Schwartz, with the hurricane’s new path, there is a smaller chance of the storm weakening before landfall. This will cause the storm to make landfall faster than previously expected.
