Good evening, and welcome to the first issue of Sticky Weather, a new climate journalism newsletter focused on climate in the South! This week, we’re covering the South from one corner to the other, starting with Virginia. I use the editorial “we,” but Sticky Weather is (currently) run by one person. I won’t begin every newsletter with a desperate plea for referrals, but this newsletter is brand new, and I could really use your help in getting the word out. If you know someone who might be interested in getting regular, dependable climate coverage for the South, consider forwarding this email to them.
