Weather Analysis & Blogging

Had Lei realized the depth of his interest in meteorology, he probably have gone and gotten a PhD in Atmospheric Science instead of a liberal arts degree. As it stands, Lei is a card carrying member of the SKYWARN® volunteer program, which operates with nearly 290,000 trained severe weather spotters. As a trained spotter, Lei provides timely and accurate reports of severe weather to our local National Weather Service forecast office. He took this training to another level by reading an introduction to meteorology textbook in his spare time.

Lei maintains a weather blog that provides weather updates specifically for New York City and the surrounding area. He checks various sources of weather forecasting information including consulting weather forecasting models such as the Global Forecast System (GFS). He attempts to write about the subject in an informed manner that helps people understand not just what to expect in tangible weather, but also what the basic causes for those sensible effects are. If you have a question about how weather might impact an upcoming event you’re planning, just ask him!
