Hello and welcome to my blog! I am very excited for you to be joining me on this adventure to learn more about the weather!

Before I get into what this blog is all about, I will give you a small introduction about myself. My name is Heather (as you can tell by the name of the blog) and I am a soon-to-be college graduate who enjoys learning and talking about the weather. I have been interested in the weather since I was child. I would sit and watch The Weather Channel for hours, enthralled by the weather maps on my television screen. This love of learning about the weather continues to this day and has led me to create this blog.

So you are probably asking, “What is this blog about?” “Is it going to be like other weather blogs where the person gives a forecast for an area?” Well this blog will not be giving forecasts or me blabbing about what interests me about the weather. This blog is here for YOU to learn and discover about various meteorological phenomena.

Each week there will be a new blog post talking about a weather topic from your questions! What I talk about each week is up to you so make sure to write your question(s) in the comment section below. You can also ask your weather questions on Twitter or Facebook, using the hashtag #WeatherwithHeather. For example, if you want to know the difference between freezing rain, sleet, and hail, write that down in the comment section then come back next week to see if your question was chosen. Do not be afraid to write multiple weather questions in the comments as well! The more the merrier!

Next week will be the first post to discuss a weather topic from your questions! Make sure after you read this blog post to comment down below with your questions. Also, if you have any suggestions for what you would like to see in my blog posts such as more pictures and videos, feel free to write them in the comment section as well. I look forward to reading and answering your questions in the coming weeks!

  1. Looks like this will be fun and informative! Hope some of the local schools will get connected... Maybe we can find a way to facilitate that...

  2. I love the name of your blog! Maybe you should talk a little about severe weather, Supercells perhaps?

  3. Great post! Coming from someone who enjoys traveling, a topic I would like to discuss is weather forecast predictions. For example, how far in advance can you actually know what the weather will be like and/or are these"extended forecast" predictions even reliable? I look forward to reading more insight soon!
