Currently in Toronto — January 5th, 2022
The weather, currently.
Not as wet tomorrow, in fact we may see a sunny break. It was quite evident where the warm front from this slow-moving system was sitting today. Windsor climbed up to 13°C earlier today, anything further east remained in the low single digits. It should be noted that is still above the norm.
Mainly cloudy tomorrow morning with some fog patches and a wake-up temperature near 1°C, feeling like -4°C. Cloud cover will dominate for much of the day, but we should see a few sunny breaks early in the day.
Later in the afternoon a few scattered showers, mixing with wet flurries in the north end of the city. The wind will be from the SW @ 20-40km/h and the high plus 3°C. (Pending the amount of sunshine we may climb to 4°C.)
Thursday night: mainly cloudy with wet flurries by dawn the low 1.
What you need to know, currently.
“The City of Trees Challenge aims to plant 100,000 trees as a response to worsening heat islands around the city.
While the world clamors about climate change, in 2020 Boise sprouted a cooperative grassroots program that’s working directly to spread a city- and statewide canopy of trees to help beat that egregious heat, improve air quality, even enrich mental health and well-being via the psychological benefits of vegetation.
The City of Trees Challenge is a coalition that brings together the City of Boise, Treasure Valley Canopy Network and Nature Conservancy Idaho to lead “a new movement for community recovery and climate resiliency.”
Broadly, the coalition hopes to rally the citizens of Boise over the ensuing decade to plant one tree for every household in the city—some 100,000 trees—while challenging the community to sponsor one seedling for every person citywide.
That’s approximately 235,000 forest trees to be planted across Idaho.”
