About Us


Shoals Weather was founded on August 4, 2011 by Drew Richards and Fred Gossage, after the devastating tornado outbreak of April 27, 2011.  We realized that, while local media outlets do a great job of covering these counties, when higher-impact storms approach the metro areas where they are based, they NATURALLY have to spend more time covering those storms.  NONE of the local media outlets ignore their fringe counties during these cases, but they have to focus on where the greater impact from the most dangerous storms are.  That’s why we started an operated, based in the Shoals, FOCUSED on the Shoals, to give you detailed local weather information, tailored to this specific area, and focused on this specific area when storms strike.  Whether it is forecast information on our website here, social media interaction on Facebook or Twitter, or up-to-the-minute coverage of severe weather threats, you can always trust Shoals Weather to be here to keep you informed.  Here at Shoals Weather, WORKING FOR YOU is not just a catchy slogan.  It’s our MISSION!
