Cloudy with a few breaks and colder

The weather, currently.

We will wrap up the week on a seasonal note. Colder air has moved into the region dropping our values to the single digits. Partly cloudy skies as you start your Friday with a wake-up temperature near -2°C feeling considerably colder with the windchill (-7°C).

The kids will need once again the winter woolies as they head to school. There will be a fair amount of cloud through the morning with some sunny breaks developing by afternoon. The high 2°C . The wind will be from the NE at 15-30km/h . This will likely create some tricky driving conditions along the QEW in the west end of Lake Ontario due to lake effect snow bands.

It will be most problematic for early commuters that travel through the Hamilton, St.Catharines and Stoney Creek area.

Friday night: Mainly cloudy with a risk of a flurry and a low of -2°C.

T minus one week left on our Project Mushroom Kickstarter. We’re building Project Mushroom as a community platform for justice and action on an overheating planet — and it’s go time! Your support has made it possible for us to build this community, but we aren't finished yet.

We’re about 65% of the way to our 200K goal. If every Currently subscriber pledged just $12 tonight, we’d meet our goal by tomorrow. Or maybe you want to do even more? We need just 320 people to pledge $250 to reach our goal.

There's no billionaire in charge here, so we're raising money as we go to support fair wages for our moderators, development team, and trust and safety experts to keep up our tremendous momentum in line with our shared values.

We’re hosting an information session, on Mon, Dec 12, 2022, at 7 PM EST, to tell you more about Project Mushroom and answer your questions. Reserve your spot now!
