Currently in Toronto— April 7, 2022

The weather, currently.

Mild with a few scattered showers

A large disturbance will continue to deliver periods of rain through the overnight, with the core of the moisture passing east of the greater Toronto area by dawn. Expect mainly cloudy skies early Thursday morning and mild conditions, with early morning temperature near 7°C. We will see some sunny breaks, but the risk of a few quick scattered showers for the afternoon is still possible. It won't be a long-lasting event, but it would be a good idea to pack your umbrella as you head out tomorrow. The wind will be light from the SW and our temperature will climb up to 13 degrees.

Thursday night: Cloudy periods with a risk of an isolated shower and a low of 3°C.

Side Note: The rain overnight will be heavy at times for eastern Ontario, there are rainfall warnings place for some areas including Kingston, Cornwall, and Prescott 20-40mm are possible.

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.
