Currently in Los Angeles — June 2nd, 2022

Warm weather and partly cloudy skies

The weather, currently.

It’s going to be another warm day, so prepare for highs around 83° and some scattered clouds in Downtown LA. As of yesterday, the Department of Water has launched new watering regulations, which is supposed to conserve resources during yet another historic drought, and can be enforced with a fine. (Unfortunately, wealthy people tend to continue to water their lawns as usual and pay the penalties, while poor people get nickel and dimed!) But if you have a lawn and lack millions, you can only water twice a week now. Last time the city did this, we could only water once a week, so maybe the drought is slightly less dire this time around. Get your lawn nice and wet before the evening dew gives your succulents a bit more moisture. Lows will reach 60°F.

What you need to know, currently.

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be bringing on legendary weather reporter, John Morales, to cover Miami and Puerto Rico.

Said Currently’s Chief Meteorologist Anthony Torres:

“It is an absolute honor to have John Morales join us at Currently. He is not only a household name in South Florida and Puerto Rico, but also a trailblazer and a personal mentor to so many wonderful people in our field. Not only has he built a reputation of trust in delivering life-saving weather information to both English and Spanish speaking households, he also fundamentally understands the moment we are living in this Climate Emergency. He has consistently leveraged his position as Chief Meteorologist as a platform to educate everyone on how the choices we make as a society today will impact the type of climate we live in the future. This is exactly the type of weather and climate reporting we aspire to make the norm not only at Currently, but in weather reports everywhere.”
