I’m not a storm team, I’m a single weather geek. I don’t have a meteorology degree. Weather is my passion, but journalism is my profession. The two have blended many times in my career but never so beautifully as this.
What I seek to do here is to take tons of weatherspeak that I absorb surfing through often-obscure meteorology Web sites and distill it into real, human language for some informative, engaging and entertaining discussion.
Welcome along for the ride. When it comes to weather, it’s guaranteed to be a wild one.”

Ten years after his first Weather Journal column was published in The Roanoke Times, Kevin Myatt is still here, providing insight on the weather once a week in print and almost daily on the Weather Journal blog.
His blog is consistently one of roanoke.com’s Top 3 in terms of Web traffic, with the number of views rocketing into the tens of thousands during the winter months.
Happy 10th birthday, Weather Journal! And congratulations, Kevin!
