Foothills Weather Network

Recommended Posts

Hey, I've been a long time follower of AmericanWx but in recent times I have been largely absent on the Southeast forums.

 

One of the reasons is that I have been working a lot with a non-profit group based in Western North Carolina who does weather coverage on social media. This past week has been a true milestone for our weather group and all the hard work.

I would like to introduce everyone to the Foothills Weather Network. We cover a total of 9 counties in North Carolina Foothills and Western Piedmont (McDowell, Burke, Caldwell, Cleveland, Lincoln, Gaston ,Catawba) with Rutherford and Wilkes officially added today.

 

A good number of these counties lie in the fringes of some bigger (top 25-40) DMA's and that's always been a driving force behind our organization...and that's to give a localized and detailed account of the weather that traditional media does not provide.

For the past couple years our coverage has been exclusive to Facebook and Twitter but that has now changed in a big way.

Now to go along with our short range analysis and weather info on Facebook, we have a web page and phone App that features the forecast for all 9 counties, updated daily...

The entire crew, about a dozen of us,  are really proud of the strides that have been made. For me personally I have always had a love for weather and with this organization that love has grown even more. But I can never dismiss how much places like this forum have also influenced me over the years. Prior to the big social media boom, this was the #1 weather forum out there...so with that I thank everyone here and for the folks in the market area I am now covering, I would love to invite each and every one of you to join our group...I'll post links below for those interested...
