Mike's Weather Page is a weather website established in 2004 by blogger Mike Boylan.[1][2]

Background[edit]

The website was launched in 2004 by Mike Boylan. He graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in marketing in 1996. He joined Facebook in 2009 to establish his weather site and has since amassed over one million followers, becoming a popular figure in the weather blogging realm.[3][4][5] Boylan is also well-known for his live coverage of Atlantic hurricanes as a storm chaser.[6][7][8][9]

The website provides a wide range of information related to weather and climate. Analysis and forecasts of tropical cyclogenesis can be found on the site.[10][11]

Recognition[edit]

Mike's Weather Page has been acknowledged by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the National Weather Service, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.[12][13][14] It has served as a source for weather analysis by hurricane hunters, meteorologists, state emergency management entities, The Weather Channel, and government officials.[15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22][23][24] Veteran meteorologist Jim Cantore once called Boylan's site a "one-stop shop for weather."[25]

In 2021, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis honored Boylan with the Tropical Meteorology Award for his site's focus on weather coverage during Atlantic hurricane seasons.[26]
