It is with great pride that I announce today that and have become "sister websites" operating from one location in the suburbs of Memphis. Both websites are being run by yours truly, effective August 12. (JWN), serving Jackson and west Tennessee outside the Memphis metro area, was started in 2003 by a good friend of mine, Eddie Holmes, a meteorologist from Jackson who is well-known to many in the region. JWN is widely used and highly regarded within the Jackson community as well as throughout west TN, including Milan, Dyersburg, Martin, Union City, Ripley, Lexington, and Selmer. I am honored to have the opportunity to continue the tradition of exceptional service Eddie has started and look forward to serving the good folks of Jackson and the rest of west TN.

For those who have been dedicated users of over the years, I want to assure you that you can continue to expect the same high-quality products and service you have become accustomed to from JWN and I expect that over time the site will continue to grow. Eddie will continue to maintain his weather blog, so you can catch his discussions and thoughts on west Tennessee weather there.

With the good fortune of having both websites under one roof, I am excited to be able to provide high-quality weather information to all of west Tennessee - from Union City to Union Avenue and everywhere in between! I wish Eddie nothing but the best in his future endeavors - he will be a hard act to follow.

Congraulations Erik : I check out out Jackson often and compare My Data to Eddie Holmes Data. Though we are often within reasonable differences in statics : there are times that even the about 14 mile difference between Bemis and His North Jackson Locations will be amazing. This mostly happens with summer time Thunderstorms. Example : On August 11, 2009 : I had a severe Thunderstorm that gave me 1.81 " of rain : A New Daily Record Amount to by the way : I believe Eddie`s Location only had less than .10 ". This happens quite often there in Memphis too. Again Congrulations ! If I can help in any way let me know. Thanks.
