What you need to know, currently.

Hurricane Ian weakened Saturday as it made its way into the mid-Atlantic. According to Currently’s Chief Meteorologist, Megan Montero, the start of the work week will be “calm,” though Ian will continue to affect the weather as it continues to dissipate:

“First, Ian dissipated over land today and will bring wet weather to the Northeast on Sunday and Monday. Secondly, Ian is in directly bringing a lot of wet weather to the West. Ian kind of disrupted the flow of the atmosphere a little bit this weekend causing a front over the Rockies to remain stationary (they usually pass through very quickly. A front remaining stationary over here is kind of unusual) and bringing above average rainfall to areas like Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico.”

Though millions remain without power since Ian knocked out the country’s grid, Cuban utilities are starting to come back. Similarly, as Floridians assess the storm’s damage, there is still lingering flooding and closed roads. But, the focus has turned to rescue and recovery and as of Saturday, more than 1,000 people have been rescued from flooded areas along the state’s southwestern coast.
