I’ve always wondered why storms avoid my town. Seriously, if you watch any storm heading for this town it will normally split then reform on the other side and gain it’s strength back and continue on. Or it will diminish in intensity to almost nothing then once past will again gain it’s strength and continue on, as well.
I’ve been told that it is because this happens where 2 rivers meet. Which is all fine and dandy but, that doesn’t tell me the why. Plus, I have watched other storms not miss a lick when passing over other areas where 2 rivers meet.
About a year ago I posted on The Weather Channel forum this exact question. Guess what they said? Nothing! Not a single reply. Not even a guess.
If anyone has a good explanation of this occurrence please post a comment.
