CBS-affiliate WKRG has bestowed veteran TV journalist Alan Sealls with “Best Weatherman Ever” trophy after the chief meteorologist’s Wednesday newscast where he explained hurricanes Irma, Jose and Katia, went viral prompting social media users to hail him as the calming voice.

Sealls was admired by the viewers on YouTube and Reddit. The video of him explaining the hurricanes had garnered more than 2 million views on YouTube at the time of publishing this article.

The users claimed Sealls’ reports cleared the confusion caused by the three hurricanes unleashing wrath on the U.S. Along with explaining the hurricanes on the video, Sealls took a step further and even added text to his clip where he outlined all three storms. He has been giving frequent updates since then.

A flurry of comments poured in on these websites, with one YouTube user saying: "I love how this guy makes a dangerous and scary situation so peaceful and calm. Other channels are like "OH NO WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE" (exaggeration), but this guy doesn't make my anxiety go berserk .” Another comment read: “Alan Sealls has got his s--- together,” 

Users on Reddit too were all praises for Sealls. “This guy reminded me more of a really good professor than a weatherman. If you get a professor or teacher who explains things this well and with this much confidence, you know you're in for a good semester,” said a Redditor. Another user claimed: Seriously, that’s the best TV weather guy I’ve seen. They always seem to stumble over their words when they do this. I understood everything he said perfectly.”

WKRG’s website also flaunted Sealls’ achievement with an article titled: Reddit’s #1 Post: Chief Meteorologist Alan Sealls Declared “Best Weatherman Ever.”

Apart from Thursday’s award, Sealls has many other accolades to his credit. According to his bio on the website, he won the “Best Weather Anchor” twice from the Alabama Associated Press Broadcasters Association and a national award from the American Meteorological Society in 2009 for a series on climate change.

Eight-time Emmy winner Sealls won the best weathercaster in the state award from Alabama Broadcaster’s Association and was given a best-in-state award for his documentary retrospective on Hurricane Ivan.

In June last year, Sealls was quoted by Lagniappe Weekly as saying: “People say I get to the point and don’t scare them when something is not as bad as others make it sound. They also say I make it easy to understand, and interesting by explaining stuff they see that they were curious about but never stopped to try to figure out. Of course, I try to have fun with the weather when it is quiet, using silly but memorable phrases to describe it!”

He added: “I also get a big kick out of explaining things to people and seeing them ‘get it.’ I’ve figured out that knowledge is one of the few things you can give away but still have the same amount when you are done.”
