Does this office issue Hard Freeze Warnings? If not, why?
It appears the all your weather messages and alerts are NOT going out via WxWire.... Is this true? I am seeing Dorchester county (MDC019) in MD has a COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY in effect but that message never showed in WxWire...
Rain total for the day today, North Chesterfield. Hicks road at hull Street.
I just want to thank you folks at the NWS for your timely tornado warnings that likely saved many lives on early Tuesday morning. Because of the timely warning I was able to get on Facebook LIVE and alert my followers of the impending danger. You don’t see many EF-2 and EF-3 much with a tropical system. Ive had many friends tell me how the alert helped them so much. You guys are great!
Thank you for your service. I haven't seen you post the info for the tornado that hit downtown Suffolk yet. Has that one been accessed yet?
I thought this was really cool. Vertical wind profile at Wakefield VA as Tropical Storm Isaias passes through.
Tornado passed over the house. Ripped the tops out of our tree but spared the house. Hit about 3am. 35 and 727 (old Bryant lane) Courtland Virginia 23837
This was the sky 1 hour before a twister?, hit Longview in Smithfield. We were wondering why there was no warning or even posted on the news.
Is it not about time for a excessive heat warning for S.E. Virginia/Hampton Rds with heat indexes running 110-115...WMBG reporting off scale at 116...Norfolk 113...Newport News...110..Dangerous Stuff.
Wow, current temperature in Hampton Virginia is 103 degrees and the heat index is 121! Wow
Hello everyone. Yesterday around 5pm I was down at Croatan Beach (Va Beach). A storm formed out of no where. I have a lot video and photos of this beautiful storm but I was wondering if there were any waterspouts reported ?? Either it was rain or rain wrapped waterspout couldn’t tell. Here are some photos also have video but it’s on my actual camera. Any explanation of this awesome storm would be greatly appreciated thank you!
This was a really cool cloud to watch roll in near Camp Peary. it is not easy to capture lighting on a phone camera...
