Currently in Toronto — September 28th, 2022
The weather, currently.
Drier tomorrow with finally a change in the weather pattern. A disturbance that has been steering rounds of rain across the region will slowly nudge eastward. Although cloud cover will still dominate on Wednesday, we should see the odd sunny break. Our sunrise time will be at 7:11 tomorrow, and as the kids head to school they should plan on wearing a ziptop but can leave the umbrella at home. The wake-up temperature near 11 degrees. We will have a breeze from the north at 20-40km/h so it will still feel quite cool. The high just 14 degrees. Which is below seasonal. (18 is the norm). Our uv index for tomorrow will be 3 or moderate.
Wednesday night: cloudy periods with a low near 7.
What you need to know, currently.
Evacuations are underway in Florida as Hurricane Ian moves in. Hurricane Ian, which is now a Category 3 hurricane, is expected to grow to a Category 4 by Tuesday afternoon, before making landfall in Florida’s Gulf Coast on Wednesday. Thousands across the state are under mandatory evacuation orders.
Since leaving Cuba, the storm’s track has moved slightly east — dangerous Hurricane weather is still expected along the West coast. Threats include flooding, hurricane force winds, tornadoes, power outages and storm surges. Storm surges south of Tampa Bay in Sarasota are now expected to reach up to 12 feet.
According to Currently’s Hurricane expert, Glenn Schwartz, with the hurricane’s new path, there is a smaller chance of the storm weakening before landfall. This will cause the storm to make landfall faster than previously expected.
