What you need to know, currently.

For more than a year, Currently has been building a weather service for the climate emergency — and listening to our members to build the kinds of weather and climate services that frontline communities need to stay safe, all while expanding joy and justice amid escalating extreme weather.

We’ve heard you, and we’re ready to kick off our 1st annual membership drive in August with some big improvements and brand new services.

We’re looking to expand our real-time weather support services in languages other than English to provide weather alerts everyone can understand. We send custom weather alerts one to two days ahead of potential hazardous extreme weather event. We are also building a text message service that people can use to interact with our meteorologists directly and ask about their weather and how best to prepare.

Please take our survey for emergency managers!
