how to do something like now() that includes users timezone Edited

I have a transition that requires a user enter a date (datepicker) and need to validate it is >= todays date.

One issue is that if it is after 8PM (EDT) then comparing to now() always fails as now() is not concious of the users timezone and thinks it is 'tomorrow'. I tried comparing to Updated and it fails the same

Is there a way to get the date that would factor in the users timezone for use in such a validator?
