Atlanta Weather | Wednesday Forecast

Storms are rolling across a majority of Alabama this afternoon as a large complex of storms that developed in central MO last night has put down yet another complex!! This is again from that pattern that is called a NW flow. Whenever we have that pattern storms will fire to the NW and head towards the SE. Most of the time they will move over Alabama and N Georgia and dump anywhere between 1-3 inches of rain. The good news is that today it looks like the heavy rain wil stay to the west in all of Alabama and S Georgia!

Tornado-Proof Home?

Tornado-Proof Home?

Too often we expect Mother Nature to respect the homes that we have built, when in reality we should be respecting Mother Nature and building our homes around her capabilities instead. We can’t force people to stop building homes along beaches where hurricanes or erosion could destroy them, nor can we expect people whose whole livelihoods are in Oklahoma and Kansas to just pack up and leave everything in the chance that a tornado might hit there. So the solution may be to build homes that can evade Mother Nature’s cruelest abilities. One company is doing just that.

Atlanta Weather | Sand Capping Tropical Development

Atlanta Weather | Sand Capping Tropical Development
 There is currently a tropical wave sliding off the coast of Africa and could develop into an organized tropical system, but there is something that is hindering it. The hindrance is in the form of dry and dusty air streaming across the eastern Atlantic Ocean from Africa's Sahara Desert.Without this Saharan dust present, concern would be high for the wave to quickly strengthen into Tropical Storm Dorian.Saharan dust is quite warm and able to rise into the upper levels of the atmosphere over the Atlantic, putting a lid on thunderstorm activity within tropical systems.The absence of those thunderstorms prevents tropical waves from maturing into tropical storms.
