This evening we learned of the passing of Meteorologist Bobby Best. Bobby had been a member of the original TalkWeather site and become a member of the new site a few years ago. He most recently served as a meteorologist and on-air personality for several radio stations in the Tuscaloosa market and also was a ham radio operator (WX4ALA). On behalf of the members and staff of TalkWeather, we send our deepest condolences to his friends and family.

I went through, first hand the April 3-4, 1974 "Super Tornado Outbreak" and the April 27, 2011 "Super Tornado Outbreak"! Both of these events that plowed through my home county of; Walker County, Alabama had a tremendous impact on me, in more ways than I can even begin to explain!
