Interesting Numbers

wsbtv.com — It appears that North Georgia is done with rainfall for 2013. Looking back, this has been an interesting year. Atlanta recorded its wettest summer ever and that propelled the year into the top ten wettest years on record. Atlanta has officially seen 64.41", that places the year at #8 all time (since 1879).

Dangerous Storm in the Far East

wsbtv.com — While the tropical season winds down for the Atlantic and Gulf, a monster of a storm roars in the Far East. Super Typhoon Haiyan is about to blast the Philippines late tonight (Friday morning local time). The storm, similar to a category 5 hurricane, is expected to cause "significant loss of life" and massive destruction according to local authorities.

Lanier streak is over

wsbtv.com — I have been monitoring the level at Lake Lanier and investigating the past records and here is what I have found: On October 30th, the level at the lake dropped below full pool of 1071' (1070.98') for the first time since April 27th. That is a string of 186 straight days.

Lake Lanier Close to a Record

wsbtv.com — Lake Lanier has been above full pool (1071 feet above sea level) everyday since April 27th. That mark sparked me to do some number crunching. I wondered, "what is the record number of days in a row at full pool for the lake?"

Cool Forecasting Tool

wsbtv.com — One of the challenges in forecasting tropical systems is the rapid intensification of a storm. Historically we have seen a tropical storm ramp up into a hurricane in hours, and we have seen a category one hurricane (74-95 mph) blow up into a category three (111-130 mph) before landfall.

90 degree days trying to return

wsbtv.com — With all the rain and clouds of the past month, temps have struggled to reach Hot-Atlanta summer levels. So far in 2013, the ATL has seen only 4 days at 90 or above and none in July (last hot day was June 28th: 92).

A Really Wet 4th Setting Up

wsbtv.com — Get ready to get wet...that will be the mantra over the next several days as an unusual pattern is setting up over Georgia. The end result will be periods of heavy rain with the high likelihood of "training".

Oklahoma Tornado Reflections

wsbtv.com — Last week I traveled to Moore Oklahoma to find stories amid the chaos of an EF-5 tornado. Our crew included photographer Casey Nichols and producer Brian Lazaro. We spent four days investigating the worst nature has to offer and watched as stranger helped stranger.

Hurricane Name Game

wsbtv.com — The Eastern Pacific Hurricane season begins today, with the Atlantic campaign kicking off on June 1st. The list of names for the Atlantic basin is always a source of discussion. Several of the names have tricky pronunciations and Severe Weather Team 2 is surely to receive numerous calls, emails and tweets on how we are doing it wrong!

It's now May, could be a cool one

wsbtv.com — Happy May everyone. Looking back, April was spot on in the temperature department as the month averaged out...average, highs and lows were right at the 30 year average. Rainfall was a different story. Atlanta was 2.15" above the average and that continued the trend of the late winter/early spring season.
