What IS the Punxsutawney Weather Discovery Center? I'm glad you asked. Mary Yoon (who used to work with me here at AccuWeather HQ) explains:
It's been an interesting weather day here at the beach in Oak Island, N.C.
By the looks of these two maps, it's about time for my annual beach vacation week at Oak Island, N.C.
Multiple waterspouts were reported this morning on the Chesapeake Bay this morning, while a landspout prompted a Tornado Warning yesterday in Iowa.
In 1997, I blogged about Hurricane Linda, a powerful hurricane moving over Socorro Island. Last night, something very similar happened.
The NWS has confirmed three tornadoes in Pennsylvania on Wednesday.
This will be one of the most severe days of 2015 in Pennsylvania; the public needs to take this one seriously.
