Our Story

This page was started in August 2011, after I decided I would try and help out with some of the questions that are being asked to many of the TV meteorologist on social media. I do not have a degree in Atmospheric Science or Meteorology, but I did attend two semesters at ULM for that area of study. I am now an advanced trained storm spotter for the National Weather Service. When this page was first started, I was the only one posting updates. A few years ago, I decided to form a spotter group across Acadiana, and bring in more trained spotters to help run the page and to help assist the National Weather Service during severe weather events. My vision for this page is to be an additional source of weather information on a social media platform. We do often give advise, but you should always follow any information from the degreed meteorologist or National Weather Service first. I enjoy spending my time on this page and keeping my weather passion alive.

Thanks
