Brown Weather was started in 2017 to accomplish one goal - to help people understand the weather. I have noticed one thing while studying climate change and extreme events: weather has profound impacts on peoples lives. My head is in the clouds most of the time, constantly imagining and re-imagining the circulation, heat transfer, and cyclonic properties of weather and water vapor from the ground to the sky.

This is a photo of me back where it all started on Rich Mountain gap outside of Boone, North Carolina. I used to sit at 4,000 feet of elevation, right at the edge of the 850 millibar level, where weather rapidly changes and takes its many different forms. I marveled at cloud dynamics, storm patterns, and the interaction between the land surface and the weather above.

Welcome to Brown Weather.

Thanks for stopping by,
