What we do at USA Weather!

USA Weather is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the timely and accurate dissemination of weather information to the public though our internet web sites, and warning the public of potentially dangerous weather conditions. The organization was co-founded in late July of 2003 by Storm Chaser James Covington, KB9ZXY, and Meteorologist Don Sell, WB9TYJ. It has been in continuous operation since that time. USA Weather is staffed by volunteers who love weather and the science of meteorology, and enjoy forecasting.

We hire meteorologists and weather enthusiasts who want to volunteer their time to producing local weather forecasts, in addiion to, national outlook forecasts for severe (thunderstorms & tornadoes), winter, hydrological, and climatological weather events.

In 2022, we are on our biggest rebrand of the organization every by introducing GIS to the website and a proprietary system for producing forecasts and alerts (also GIS-based).
