Agreed on the weather front. The traditional approach seems to have settled in on what it thinks works, but it really doesn’t.

As a bit of a weather-weenie myself, I’ve been following a few semi-pro meteorologists online for many years. If severe weather is in the offing, I go to their Twitter and Facebook accounts to be more informed instead of relying on the mass-media weather outlets. In the last year, a few of these meteorologists and hobbyists have released apps that provide hyper-local forecasting and reporting.

I use a blend of their information to proactively prepare. Preparation will be key as climate change continues.

The best find lately for my region is @crankyweatherguy on Twitter. He does not even offer forecasting. His tweets are the closest thing to telling a story about upcoming weather events. I’ve learned more from following him for a couple of months than years of following other mets.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
