Introducing Our Staff, Part 6
Our next featured meteorologist is the “Reale” deal in terms of forecasting and keeping our clients on top of the weather. Rob Reale began as an intern at WeatherWorks in 2009, before officially joining in October 2010 as a full-time meteorologist. Other than forecasting, Rob helps with the day to day operations, the forensic department, social media, and also assists in managing parts of our Certified Snow Total service. I sat down and asked Rob a few questions:
30 Inch Hype: Don't Believe it!
Over the past few days, many have been asking about a 30 inch blizzard next week. My advice to you, is please don't believe it. Many of these blizzard rumors have roots in amateur weather facebook/twitter pages that just post whichever model produces the most snow. Most of these pages are created by those who do not have a degree in meteorology and just like the weather. Every operational forecaster on our staff (including the social media department) have either bachelor's or master's degrees in meteorology and that's why you will NOT find this storm currently mentioned in our media.
Where are the Cicadas?
By now, I'm sure you've heard about the potential for millions of cicadas to swarm the Eastern Seaboard this spring. But where are the hoards of 2" long insects which only emerge every 17 years? Although some have started singing their horrible song (click to listen) over VA and MD, only a few have been spotted in NJ, PA, NY and CT. Well, the major problem has been the cool temperature swings this spring.
