Why South Carolina buildings are more hurricane-ready than North Carolina [Ep. 492]

5/15/2024
#weather #northcarolina #southcarolina #hurricane #severeweather See why IBHS is expressing serious concerns about North Carolina's building codes when it comes to hurricane readiness -- and why South Carolina continues to hold strong. With the traditional start of hurricane season just weeks away, the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) has released its Rating the States which report evaluates the 18 states along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, all vulnerable to catastrophic hurricanes, based on building code adoption, enforcement, and contractor licensing. In the report, published every three years, each state is rated on a 0โ€“100 scale using data from responses to groups of questions related to different aspects of their building code programs. https://ibhs.org/public-policy/rating-the-states/ ๐Ÿงข MERCH: https://rstrm.io/e/YDmSpk ๐Ÿ’ธ LEAVE A TIP: https://streamelements.com/carolinawxgroup/tip ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ SUBSCRIBE TO OUR PODCAST: https://anchor.fm/carolinaweather ๐Ÿ”” SUPPORT US ON PATREON: https://patreon.com/carolinaweathergroup ๐Ÿ’ป VISIT OUR WEBSITE: https://carolinaweathergroup.com The Carolina Weather Group operates a weekly talk show of the same name.

The truth about cicadas & Rock Hill hail storm [Ep. 490]

4/24/2024
This week, WCNC Charlotte Chief Meteorologist Brad Panovich talks about two very important, and yet very different, topics: The cicada emergence and a destructive severe thunderstorm in Rock Hill, South Carolina.This year will have the return of two different broods of cicadas, the Periodical Cicadas, also known as Brood XIX or Brook 19. They return every 13 years and are expected here in the Carolinas.Elsewhere in the United States, Broox XIX, which returns every 17 years, is also returning.A lot of headlines are emphasizing this return of two different cicada broods with phrases like "cicada invasion" or "cicada apocalypse." Many news stories give the false impression that the two types of cicadas will be appearing at the same time.As Brad Panovich explains, unless you live in a few very specific locations, you are unlikely to experience both types of cicadas. (Of course, even just one type of cicada can be loud enough. Just as the people of Newberry County, South Carolina: https://www.wltx.com/article/news/local/cicadas-noise-complaints-newberry-county-south-carolina-bugs/101-d1dbb836-6a68-438a-8813-700d7a61e5f2) Brad write's more about the cicadas here: https://www.wcnc.com/article/weather/weather-iq/millions-of-cicadas-return-after-13-years-in-the-next-few-weeks/275-b664824b-858a-43d6-b893-e5959771890eBrad also shares his eyewitness account of devastating storm damage in Rock Hill, South Carolina. A supercell thunderstorm impacted York County, South Carolina on April 20 with 90-mph winds and baseball-sized hail. Brad visited the neighborhoods hardest hit by the severe weather and talked with experts, including the National Weather Service and the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) about what they saw.The thunderstorm, which was found not to have produced a tornado, produced the largest hail either Brad or the Carolina Weather Group's Frank Strait can recall ever seeing in the Carolinas. Frank, who is from Rock Hill, shares his thoughts on the severe weather damage left behind in his hometown. #northcarolina #southcarolina #weather #ncwx #scwx ๐Ÿงข MERCH: https://rstrm.io/e/YDmSpk ๐Ÿ’ธ LEAVE A TIP: https://streamelements.com/carolinawxgroup/tip ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ SUBSCRIBE TO OUR PODCAST: https://anchor.fm/carolinaweather ๐Ÿ”” SUPPORT US ON PATREON: https://patreon.com/carolinaweathergroup ๐Ÿ’ป VISIT OUR WEBSITE: https://carolinaweathergroup.com The Carolina Weather Group operates a weekly talk show of the same name.

Chasing storms: Inside the tornado outbreak of April 13, 2020 | Ep. 488

4/10/2024
Chris Jackson is a South Carolina-based storm chaser and a trained first responder. On April 13, 2020, he chased severe weather as it raced across his home state. The early morning event was a continuation of what became known as the Easter tornado outbreak of 2020, which caused damage across much of the South before coming into the Carolinas. In South Carolina, there were 5 EF-3 tornadoes, 2 EF-2 tornadoes, and 1 EF-1 tornado in Central South Carolina and East-Central Georgia, causing 2 fatalities and at least 7 significant injuries. On this episode of the Carolina Weather Group podcast, Chris Jackson shares his story of chasing the storms, reporting tornado damage as a SKYWARN spotter, dialing 911 to alert authorities of an emergency, and rescuing a couple from their storm-ravaged home. By the time the severe weather outbreak was over, Chris visited Williston, Neeses, Livingston, Estill, Nixville, and Walterboro, all in the state of South Carolina, to survey the storm damage. During the course of the tornado outbreak, the National Weather Service in Charleston, SC issued their first ever Tornado Emergency, which is the highest and most severe classification of a Tornado Warning.

Preparing for the 2024 solar eclipse [Ep. 484]

3/13/2024
#space #science #eclipse #northcarolina #southcarolina #weather #ncwx #scwx The Monday, April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will cross North America, passing over Mexico, the United States, and Canada. Unlike 2017, the totality will not pass directly through the Carolinas. But still, at about 80% totality, there will still be some solar eclipse to experience in both North Carolina and South Carolina - weather permitting. This week on the Carolina Weather Group, James Brierton talks with Gina DiBraccio, Deputy Director of Heliophysics, NASA GSFC, about what we can expect to see, how we can prepare for the eclipse, and the scientific discoveries that are made possible by a solar eclipse. We also discuss space weather, solar storms, and the impacts of solar radiation on technology such as GPS and radio communication. Still need solar eclipse glasses? In this episode, we explain how you can make solar eclipse glasses at home. You can also reuse your glasses from the 2017 Eclipse or check retailers. While demand for the eclipses will be high, checking with unconventional retailers like video production stores or a hardware store may help. For example, B&H will ship you solar eclipse glasses (while supplies last) from https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/buy/solar-eclipse-glasses-accessories/ci/32948.

AI severe weather alerts [Ep. 481]

2/22/2024
NOAAโ€™s National Weather Service (NWS) has provided manual translations of weather forecasts and warnings in Spanish for the past 30 years, but now the agency has a new tool to be more accurate, efficient and equitable. Through a series of pilot projects over the past few years, NWS forecasters have been training artificial intelligence (AI) software for weather, water and climate terminology in Spanish and Simplified Chinese, the most common languages in the United States after English. NWS will add Samoan and Vietnamese next, and more languages in the future. Two of the nearly dozen locations where these AI-translated severe weather bulletins are being tested are in the Carolinas. This week, James Brierton talks with Chris Rohrbach, a meteorologist and web developer at the National Weather Service in Columbia, South Carolina, where this artificial intelligence experiment is being tested alongside locations such as Greenville-Spartanburg, SC. Youโ€™re invited to try out the translated severe weather bulletins at https://weather.gov/translate. NOAA wants your feedback.

The man inside NC's decommissioned lighthouse [Ep. 477]

1/18/2024
It's been three years since the Carolina Weather Group first talked with Richard Neal, the owner of the decommissioned Frying Pan Shoals Tower off the coast of North Carolina. James Brierton and Shea Gibson caught up with Richard recently during the Weather Pods Disaster Relief Telethon. Here now is that updated conversation, followed by an encore presentation of our first interview from 2020. Frying Pan Tower is located 32 miles off the coast of North Carolina and rises 135' above the Atlantic Ocean. It helps provide safety to Mariners in the Atlantic Ocean, is used for environmental research and education studies, and is a shelter to a natural ecosystem for marine wildlife. Its location makes it a prime spot to observe tropical weather off the Carolina coast, including a direct hit by Hurricane Irene in 2011. Weather conditions are observed on-board by weather sensors and a live streaming webcam. In 2010, the government placed the Frying Pan Tower up for auction, with the winning bid going to Richard Neal of Charlotte, NC. Richard is our guest on this episode of the Carolina Weather Group. The tower is powered using wind turbines and solar energy for electricity. It has a filtration system for potable water and high-speed Internet for communications. You can learn more about the tower, and make a donation to its upkeeping, on https://fptower.org/. This original episode was available early to our Patreon supporters.
