I just got back from a trip to the leesville weather headquarters in Ohio. I was there to witness the first-ever weather data that allowed residents to see what it would be like in their own backyards. I’m not sure what I was expecting but it was definitely less than the reality. I was impressed that in Ohio there were about 150 stations in the state.
I’ve been living in Leesville since I was a kid, and so far as I can see, the weather has been pretty awful. I’ll probably go back to my house and watch the weather as it goes on.
Leesville has been pretty bad, but I think that the weather data was the best thing the city had going for it. I think what the city wanted was to see how the weather would change over time. We live a pretty sheltered life in a rural town, so I can see where it would be useful for the city to get a better feel for the state. The only other data they could have gotten from the citizens was when it was raining or snowing.
Some people get a little sentimental about the weather and think, “Oh, I’m glad I’m not a hurricane because it’s always raining in the summer.” Others say, “Oh, I’m glad I’m not a hurricane because it’s always snowing in the winter.
I see how a winter in a tropical climate would be a bit much. I think hurricanes are cooler and not as bad for the environment; it’s like saying, Oh, Im glad Im not a hurricane because it never rains in the winter.
To be fair, hurricanes do happen year round in some parts of the world, but this is an exception, not a rule. And it does sound like we’re getting a little too “tropical” here. The Weather Channel has a more traditional tropical weather outlook while the National Hurricane Center (NHC) is a bit more like a more modern “Pacific” outlook.
Yeah, that’s a little bit like a hurricane. The NHC’s hurricane outlook says that hurricanes are usually mild. And the Weather Channel says there are hurricane warning watches for the entire eastern coast of America as well as a hurricane watch for the western part of the U.S. and a hurricane watch for California. And the National Weather Service says there are hurricane warnings for the entire eastern seaboard, with watches and warnings for parts of New England and the Carolinas.
That’s just the beginning of the hurricane season. When it starts and the hurricane warnings are issued, it’s the time of year where hurricanes come through. And we can expect to see more of it in the coming weeks and months.
The Atlantic hurricane season runs from October through April, and during the entire Atlantic hurricane season, hurricanes only make up about one-third of all storms on Earth. But hurricanes and other tropical storms can be a serious threat to life and property. In the United States, the greatest threat comes from hurricanes. In fact, the U.S. Gov’t has declared hurricane season to begin in August and end in April.
This happens because hurricanes and tropical storms can form anywhere on the Earth’s surface. The hurricane season in the Atlantic, for example, can begin in as little as late August and end in early April, with both seasons extending through April. The strongest hurricanes in the Atlantic can be category four or five, meaning they’ve been rated as very dangerous by the National Hurricane Center. In the Pacific, the hurricane season is generally from the tropical Pacific Ocean to the southern tip of Australia.
