Local Weather

One of my all-time favorite assignments was following Stafford storm chaser Chris White for a couple of days. He’s an extremely nice guy and a bona fide weather nut who has spotted more tornadoes in central Virginia than common knowledge would suggest is possible. Since weather has been on everyone’s mind this winter, I figured this may be helpful.

White maintains two blogs. One is Storms-R-Us and if focuses mostly on severe thunderstorms and tornadoes.

His other blog is Fredericksburg Weather and it takes a broader approach. One note on this one, however. The posts are attributed to "Chris White," but I’m not 100% certain that it’s the same Chris White I wrote about last year. Makes sense that it would be, but you never know. At any rate, the information is useful.

For the record, he’s predicting mostly rain out of today’s storm.
