WeatherWorks Storm Alert Service
With the threat for significant snow Thursday and Friday in the Northeast, many snow "predictions" have been thrown out from just a few inches to a foot or more. Imagine if your company could have 24/7 consultation with a meteorologist specifically covering your region to clarify reality from fantasy? WeatherWorks provides just that with our Storm Alert service.
Introducing Our Staff, Part 4
The next employee I would like to introduce is Christina Speciale.

Get to Know Our Staff, Part 1
First, I want to thank all of you for reading our blogs on the site. Our meteorologists work hard to write blogs that are interesting and at the same time informative. Speaking of our meteorologists, I have decided to do a mini-series going a little more in-depth into the workers here at WeatherWorks. My goal with these blogs is to take you behind the forecasts, blogs, and all the other products we provide to show you the great employees that put it all together.
1950 Thanksgiving Day Storm
After being down in Atlantic City and along the shore and seeing how so many people were affected by Sandy, I decided to write about another big storm that hit the northeast on Thanksgiving Day 62 years ago. This storm had everything, high winds, heavy snow, and very cold temperatures all the way into the South. It started as a strong upper level low pressure system moved over the Great Lakes area.
