New Weather Updates Coming to

by September 9, 2008 • 5 comments

Greetings from the new Weather Girl.  Starting today, I will be writing weather updates for pcbdaily.  Although I am not a meterologist, forecaster, or scientist, I love learning about the weather.  Since moving to Panama City Beach I have become very interested in tropical systems.  I spend a great deal of my time tracking storms and researching data.  I also have the Weather Channel on so much that my family makes fun of me.  So, I guess what I’m trying to say is that everyone is hereby put on notice that I am just an uneducated weather geek, so any future postings by me should not be considered an official weather forecast.

My goal is to summarize and combine a lot of the information that is out there.  I have a routine of gathering data from several different websites and I wish it were all in one place.  When reporting on systems I will try to provide information from  the National Hurricane Center, NOAA, Navy Weather Sites, the National Weather Service, and other prominent weather agencies.  The format will change depending on the circumstances and what information is available.

If anyone out there has suggestions or would like to see information from certain sources please let me know.  There is so much data available and it is hard to figure out what is most important.  I encourage those with knowledge on the subject to contribute to, or correct, anything I write.

Thank you,

Christina Durta

Well Oscar, I will try not to blow your fantasy. Although, I’m sure I look much better as a figment of your imagination.
