For those of you who are just joining me on the blog, welcome. Although I end my discussions with Dr. J, I don’t have a PHD. I have taken courses in Meteorology, Climatology, and Oceanography. I have been involved with the AMS Association & the NWS LAX/Oxnard spotter program since the early 1998. I merely use that tag line, as some people refer compare me in a tongue and cheek way with Dr.George Fischbeck, the old KABC meteorologist in the 70’s and 80’s. I have met him several times and it was a thrill of mine to pick his brain on forecasting and discussing the weather. For those of you who don’t know me, I have been studying forecast models, SST trends and teleconnection patterns since the early 90’s before the WWW was even born! At the end of the day, I want to give all my followers an idea of what the weather will be like and what the long range forecasts look like….. which is why I enjoy it so much, as it is a puzzle to me. I look at certain patterns and try to give my followers a snap shot of what is to come and when it will come, and what to expect. Currently, I have over 100 subscribers on my blog and counting. I have recently started a twitter feed, and I am gaining members daily. Please feel free to share this site and my twitter feed with anyone, and have them sign up for email alerts if they are interested. My twitter handle is @realexforecast
A risk manager/Insurance Broker by day, I also try to update my members/followers on property losses, severe weather and life threatening conditions. Please feel to comment on what you want to see/read and update the all of you on it!
Thanks for visiting.
