Currently in Toronto — November 8th, 2022
The weather, currently.
It will feel about 15 degrees colder tomorrow than it was on the weekend. A weak cool front has passed thru the region, allowing much cooler air to flood in. However, it will be bright. Tuesday morning will have a sunny start and a wake-up temperature near 2°C. Our sunrise time tomorrow is 7:02 a.m. which will give us 9 hours and 56 minutes of daylight. Bright skies will dominate for the day, with a high of 9°C. While that is much cooler than Saturday's record-breaking warmth, it should be noted that high single digits are in fact our seasonal norm. The wind will be light from the East and the UV index will be 3 or moderate.
Tuesday night: mainly clear with a low of 1°C.
What you need to know, currently.
The National Hurricane Center has issued a hurricane watch for Florida’s east coast — from the Brevard-Volusia county line, south to Hallandale Beach — as subtropical storm Nicole developed Monday morning in the Atlantic Ocean. A tropical storm watch has also been issued for northeastern Florida, southeastern Florida and southeastern Georgia.
The storm is expected to become a hurricane by 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday, before it comes to Florida’s west coast, hitting the Bahamas on its way. The storm’s magnitude is still uncertain.
“The main difference between a tropical and subtropical storm is not in the winds that they generate, but that a tropical storm tends to generate more rain,” says Currently’s Chief Meteorologist, Megan Montero.
There will be heavy rainfall through Thursday across the Florida peninsula, as well as flash and urban flooding. Dangerous storm surge is also possible across the northwestern Bahamas, the east coast of Florida and areas of coastal Georgia, according to Montero.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has predicted at least four more hurricanes will form before the season officially ends on Nov. 30. The next named storm to form would be Owen.
