I know, it has been a real pain for millions of people across the country this winter with Winter weather related issues

The winter weather across the Mid-South and a good bit of the country has brought challenging conditions, including ice, snow, extreme cold, along with freezing rain. The issues that have come along with it are not entirely over. These weather events have disrupted daily life and increased accidents, including slip and fall and motor vehicle incidents. As a certified and expert forensic meteorologist, I want to help those involved in unfortunate circumstances. I can help make a difference in understanding and resolving cases related to winter weather accidents.

Yes, winter weather is always a challenge and brings many headaches. In 2023, I slipped on black ice but was fortunate enough to grab a railing without injury.

Winter weather can create hazardous conditions that significantly impact road safety and increase the risk of accidents, and the threat is not over yet. The presence of ice, snow, and freezing rain can turn roads and walkways into treacherous surfaces. These have had various traffic issues, including reduced visibility, slippery roads, and pedestrian challenges to say the least.
