DirecTV to drop The Weather Channel from its lineup

By: TropicalAnalystwx13, 12:45 AM GMT on January 12, 2014

In the summer of 2008, NBC bought The Weather Channel; since this time, we have seen a transition from an all-weather channel to one that focuses more on entertainment shows and little around-the-clock weather coverage. This has angered many of the channel's loyal customers, and a good majority of long-time viewers have moved on. Over the past few weeks, DirecTV has been in negotiation with The Weather Channel due to the high number of complaints -- today, it was an...

Tropical Storm Raymond intensifying again, likely to regain hurricane intensity

By: TropicalAnalystwx13, 4:32 AM GMT on October 27, 2013

Tropical Storm Raymond is still spinning in the East Pacific tonight, a week after first being designated as a tropical cyclone. Since its inception, Raymond has managed to attain Category 3 hurricane intensity, the first in the West Hemisphere in 2013!

Henriette strengthening, Gil hanging on; watching the Caribbean in mid-August

By: TropicalAnalystwx13, 12:04 AM GMT on August 06, 2013

The wave of tropical cyclones in the East Pacific basin has continued since my last blog entry, specifically with the development of Henriette. This system is a result of the invest previously dubbed Invest 90E; initially, no development of this feature was expected given its proximity to at-the-time Hurricane Gil. Due mainly to the change in the upper-air pattern for Gil, however, the system dramatically weakened, subsequently reducing the amount of outflow produce...
