Meteorologist Erica Grow

Meteorologist Erica Grow Meteorologist and Councilor of the American Meteorological Society.
(80)

I've been fascinated by the weather since I was a child, and I've always been curious about how things work and why they happen, especially as it pertains to the natural world. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology from Penn State University in 2002, and received the AMS Seal as a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist in 2012. I was elected to the Society's leadership team as a Councillor in 2018. I also currently serve on the AMS Board on Best Practices and the Board on Enterprise Economic Development. One of my favorite things to do is answer people's burning questions about the weather and how the atmosphere works... so if you have a question, please feel free to ask!

The tragic situation in Nashville serves as an important reminder:
1. Tornadoes can happen in big cities, even downtown. Tall buildings don’t provide protection. We don’t see tornadoes in big cities very often because cities take up a relatively small proportion of land in the USA.
2. Tornadoes can happen at any time of day, even in the middle of the night when you may not be watching TV or looking at mobile alerts.
3. This is super important: the Emergency Alert System has been updated so only the most critical alerts will trigger the alert tone and message. You will not be bombarded by Flash Flood Warnings in the middle of the night; only Flash Flood EMERGENCY and Tornado Warnings will be transmitted.

My heart hurts. This is Nashville right now. I’m scared for when the sun comes up. 😔

A happy belated birthday to the National Weather Service! On February 9, 1870, president Ulysses Grant signed a joint resolution of Congress to establish a national weather bureau. It was an important step toward standardized weather observations and reliable forecasts for Americans everywhere.

Today is the 150th anniversary of NOAA’s National Weather Service! From its beginnings as part of the U.S. Army Signal Service through today, the history and legacy of the National Weather Service is a story of science and service to save lives, protect property, and enhance the national economy.

This collage is a sample of some of your favorite weather images that appeared on noaa.gov and NOAA social media. Remember to bookmark weather.gov for your latest forecast and visit https://vlab.ncep.noaa.gov/web/nws-heritage to learn more about the proud history of the National Weather Service.

The sudden passing of Dr. Lapenta is a shocking loss for our community. As NCEP Director, he went out of his way to engage with the people who use computer forecasting models, asking us what we would like to see improved. I will always appreciate that he cared about the opinions of little guys like us.

The operational meteorology community mourns the sudden loss of Dr. Bill Lapenta, who was serving as acting Director to the NOAA Office of Weather and Air Quality and previously was the NWS NCEP Director. He was a mentor, colleague and inspiration to many within the field. He will be sorely missed.

Nearly seven years after Sandy, we haven’t done nearly enough to protect ourselves against natural disasters and future risk: “The cities... (with) high vulnerability and low preparation are mostly in Florida and California, and the northeastern coastal cities in New York and New Jersey.”

New studies find cities most vulnerable to climate change disasters—heat waves, flooding, rising seas, drought—are the least prepared. -> via CityLab

So, we ended up getting .2 inches of snow in my town of Long Valley (Schooley's Mountain) late Friday night/early Saturday morning. We also had occasional flurries throughout the day on Saturday. Mother Nature is clearly drinking heavily to help get herself through this pandemic. 🙂
Erica it feels more like March than may can not wait for the warmer weather to come back
Erica the last couple of days have been a blessing as far as the weather is concerned took advantage of it by walking outside wearing a mask of course 70 degree days back to back days very nice
