While the blogs below are from weather professionals, some are by a single person and represent one person's view. Please keep that in mind.
  • "Eye of the Storm" blog from Jeff Masters at Scientific American
    "Jeff Masters worked as a hurricane scientist with the NOAA Hurricane Hunters from 1986-1990. After a near-fatal flight into category 5 Hurricane Hugo, he left the Hurricane Hunters to pursue a safer passion--a 1997 Ph.D. in air pollution meteorology from the University of Michigan. In 1995, he co-founded the Weather Underground, and served as its chief meteorologist until the company was sold to the Weather Company in 2012. Since 2005, his Wunderblog (now called Category 6) has been one of the Internet’s most popular sources of extreme weather and climate change information, and he is one of the most widely quoted experts in the field."
  • "Category 6" blog from Bob Henson at The Weather Underground
    From the blog author: "WU meteorologist Bob Henson" "is the author of 'Meteorology Today' and 'The Thinking Person's Guide to Climate Change.' Before joining WU, he was a longtime writer and editor at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, CO."
  • "Inside the Eye" blog from NOAA's National Hurricane Center (NHC)
    From the blog author: "Why have we launched a blog? The staff at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) regularly conducts training and educational workshops during the off season for specific audience groups, including emergency managers and other meteorologists. However, despite our heavy emphasis on outreach, there is always a large segment of the population that does not have the opportunity to hear from us in person on important changes to NHC products or discuss topics related to tropical and marine weather events. Therefore, we've launched this blog to be able to keep you, our partners and customers, more informed on a consistent and timely basis."
  • Blog from NOAA's Hurricane Research Division (HRD)
    From the blog's page: "The Hurricane Research Division (HRD) is a part of the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) on Virginia Key, FL. AOML is a part of the Oceanic and Atmospherc Research (OAR) office of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the United States Government's Department of Commerce (DOC).

    HRD began fifty years ago as the National Hurricane Research Project and has, under various names, continued to conduct scientific research into hurricanes and related tropical weather phenomena, using theoretical studies, computer models, and an annual field program employing NOAA hurricane research aircraft. This research has resulted in a deeper, scientific understanding and in numerous practical applications which have improved forecasts. HRD employs meteorolgists, computer scientists, and other professionals, who collaborate with other governmental and academic scientists worldwide in this ongoing effort to advanced scientific knowledge and increase public safety."
  • Capital Weather Gang from The Washington Post
    From the blog's about page: "The Capital Weather Gang blog provides the most insightful and entertaining weather coverage available for the metropolitan Washington, D.C. region. Our team of forecasters and writers not only tells you what's going on with local weather, but why it's happening, and what you can expect for specific upcoming events and locations of interest. We'll explain what causes various weather phenomena, warn you about bad (and good) weather on the horizon, and during severe weather or emergencies our blog will be an up-to-the-minute resource. And we'll give you facts and figures you won't get from the average weather report."
  • CIMSS Satellite Blog
    From the blog's about page: "The intent of this blog is to showcase examples of meteorological satellite imagery and products that are available to (or created by) scientists and researchers at NOAA's Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS), located at the University of Wisconsin - Madison's Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC). Interesting and/or educational satellite images that are relevant to current (or recent) weather events will be shown and discussed; if no significant or newsworthy weather events are happening elsewhere in the US (or the world), we will usually focus on satellite imagery over the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes regions."
  • El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) Blog at
    "A blog about monitoring and forecasting El Niño, La Niña, and its impacts." "A team of climate scientists offer perspectives and analysis on the progression of El Niño."
