Southeastern Winter Storm Summary

As we all know, a snow event impacted the region on Thursday afternoon and into the evening hours, causing major traffic issues across the region. This was associated with the system before the main event to our south. A shortwave trough had been forecast for several days to propagate southeastward out of the northwestern US […]

WxOrNotBG Tweets of the Week

Twitter is a meteorologist’s best friend and worst enemy. Meteorologists send out hundreds of tweets per day, and it is such a useful tool for dispensing information. Many times, though, hype will begin and spread like fire on Twitter. Other times, it saves someone’s life. Therefore, Twitter sees the best and worst out of meteorologists […]

Tropical Storm Julia Forms…Inland?

For the past, oh say, week or so, we have been tracking a system traversing across the Atlantic referred to as “93L” by the National Hurricane Center (NHC). As it propagated eastward, it looked fairly terrible the majority of the way. It was disorganized and just kinda an amorphous blob. I citizens x’d this yesterday. […]

Hurricane Hermine Takes aim at Florida

Yesterday morning, Tropical Storm Hermine was born in the southern Gulf of Mexico as what looked like a big blob of convection. She has been classified as a tropical system, with an organized surface circulation, since Sunday morning; however, it took her a while to get the name “Hermine”. Early in her life she came […]

Tropical Storm Colin Forms Over The Weekend

Much of the model guidance had been showing a system forming in the southern Gulf, and heading for the coast of Florida as we headed […]

Tropical Depression Two Forms Over The Atlantic

Yesterday afternoon, Tropical Depression Two formed off the coast of the Carolinas in the Atlantic ocean. The system was fairly weak, and still is. It currently has winds of 35 mph and 1009 mb, but is expected to strengthen into a Tropical Storm later today. When I saw that this was Tropical Depression Two, I was […]

Bowling Green’s 1000 Year Flood Numbers

Over the weekend, many of you saw the flooding and resulting devastation across South Carolina from the incredible amount of rainfall they had. A trough of low pressure dug deep into the southeastern US, and caught a stream of higher moisture values off of Hurricane Joaquin. This trained over the same areas for hours, and […]
