Currently in Los Angeles — November 9th 2022

The weather, currently.

Rain leaves us in the early morning, making way for sunshine

Bid the rain farewell. Hope you enjoyed it! You may have one last chance to say goodbye early Wednesday morning, but by 10 AM, the sun will return to brighten up our days. We’ll still have cool temperatures, with highs only reaching about 60°F, but at least you can wear your favorite suede shoes knowing that they won’t get soggy when you step outside.

The wind will have settled down too, so you can also pop on a hat without having to worry about chasing it down the street, capturing it before it falls into a gutter that drains into the ocean. Afternoon temperatures will drift through the 50’s, and will slide all the way down to 40° on a clear night.

Nicole is expected to strengthen into a hurricane
Subtropical cyclone Nicole is expected to strengthen into a Category-1 hurricane on Wednesday and hit Florida’s east coast early Thursday.

Tropical storm Nicole is expected to strengthen into a Category-1 hurricane on Wednesday and hit Florida's east coast early Thursday. Hurricane conditions are expected to impact the coast of southeast and east-central Florida beginning late Wednesday.

As of 10 am ET this morning, Nicole officially transformed from a subtropical cyclone into a tropical storm. As of Tuesday evening, due to model uncertainty, meteorologists predict that the storm could make landfall anywhere along the coast of eastern Florida, from Cape Canaveral to Miami.

“Nicole is expected to weaken as it moves inland over Florida and head northeastward over the southeastern United States, where it could bring heavy rain to Georgia and South Carolina,” says Currently’s Chief Meteorologist, Megan Montero.

The storm is expected to reduce to an extra tropical cyclone, and dissipate, by the weekend.
