I know phrases like "in situ" which means in the current place/position, is there another phrase for the temporal equivalent which means "at the moment"?

    It appears that the OP is seeking a phrase of Latin origin that would be, like in situ, readily understood in an English context; so interpreted, the question is about English language and usage.

I have heard the Latin phrase pro tempore or more usually pro tem used in English, meaning "for the time being."
