The weather, currently.
Happy June! There’s no gloom here on our notoriously grey month. Wednesday will be bright and sunny, with nary a cloud in the sky. That clearness brings us hot high temperatures of about 84°F, so make sure you soak in a tub of sunscreen before you go outside today. As I’ve been walking around my neighborhood, I’ve been noticing an uptick in tourists, wandering aimlessly as they google the coolest spots, and I’m thinking that LA’s summer is going to be roaring with life (we’re still in a pandemic, people!) On an evening like this, where temperatures stay in the high-60’s before eventually reaching a low of 60°F, the patio seating is buzzing, and you might just need to make a reservation or muscle out tourists to enjoy the summer night.
What you need to know, currently.
Check out the latest Currently Explainer! Currently’s managing editor, Zaria Howell, spoke with some of our meteorologists regarding how best to prepare for and survive a hurricane. As hurricane season is upon us, it’s more important than ever to make sure you and your community know the best ways to prepare for this extreme weather event.
Meteorologists say that first, you need to assess how vulnerable your community is to hurricanes. Find out if you and your community are in a storm surge area, for example, and how susceptible your home is to damage. If you know that your area floods, have an evacuation plan. It’s also important to have a “hurricane kit” packed with water, food, medication, personal documents and other essential items. And, make sure you have a long-term plan in place for once the storm passes as well.
