WXnation.com News: New City Page For New Jersey: Atlantic City. The NJ webcam links that were in the New York City page are now in the Atlantic City page, though some NJ cams pointed at the Big Apple are still in the NYC page. The total WXnation.com city page count is now 109 cities in 48 states and two Canadian provinces.

City Page Name Change: After checking with the latest Census.gov metropolitan area population stats, I have opted to re-label the weeks-old Fort Myers page as “Cape Coral, FL” throughout this site, and titled the page “Cape Coral/Fort Myers, FL.”

“Bottom line: weather in the Tennessee Valley is getting interesting, and it will be that way for a while.” Full story

Another Reason To Believe: How about those BoSox? And they were against even more incredible odds: Find out what record the Boston Red Sox were when the game-time temperature was 65 degrees or below compared to the Yankees in this story … What a great series! I’m relieved that I can get some extra sleep over the next couple of nights, assuming the Cardinals/Astros game ends by midnight tonight…

WXnation Weblog Update: You may have noticed that the webcam image near the top of this page looks awfully flat for being Mount St. Helens. That’s because I’ve switched away from that cam and replaced it with a live cam image from WXnation.com’s headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas. The image links to a large version that updates automatically every 10 seconds. Should steam eruptions resume at Mount St. Helens, I’ll switch the image back to the live VolcanoCam.
