Currently in Toronto — July 6th 2022
The weather, currently.
Although the light rain has helped, it is far from what the region needs. Dry conditions will resume Wednesday. (More on that in a moment). We will start the day with sunny breaks and a wake-up temperature of 19°C. For summer fun, it will indeed be a very good day. The skies will be brighter by lunchtime, with mainly sunny conditions for the afternoon and a high of 25°C, that feels like 29°C.
The wind will be light from the SE and the UV index will be 8 or very high.
Wednesday night: scattered clouds and a low of 15°C.
Last month we recorded only about 40mm of rain, the norm is 71mm. For July, the monthly rainfall average is about 75mm or 3 inches. We will need a stretch of wet days before we even come close to getting back on track.
What you need to know, currently.
We have a piece up today from Currently’s editorial fellow, Anna Abraham, on the survival and revitalization of Indigenous languages amid climate change.
“Many Indigenous and traditional languages across the world are deeply rooted in and connected to the environment,” Abraham writes. “Passed down from one generation to the next, often orally, this knowledge enables different ways of connecting to the land and nature. But as climate change intensifies, and ecosystems change as a result, Indigenous languages suffer losses.”
