Meteorologists are a pretty serious folks in part because forecasting the weather is pretty serious business, you know with all that messy math and physics and nerdy stuff. In order to cope with the seriousness bug, some meteorologists have found humor in ordinary things…… like fog for example.
Makes me laugh just thinking about it.
I have created this blog as a way to learn about the weather and forecasting. I provide a forecast mixed with interesting insights about how our atmosphere works sprinkled with liberal doses of humour. The weather is so fascinating it needs explaining, and through these blogs you will see how the weather and life mirror each other.
I post the weekend forecast every Thursday evening. These forecasts are intended for my continued learning about this fascinating topic so use them at your discretion. Their quality is not guaranteed and they are not a substitute for Environment Canada who have the authority for operational weather forecasts in Canada.
Oh by the way, I teach meteorology at Royal Roads University (2009 Co-Recipient , Teacher of the Year Award) and have many scientific publications. I also write a monthly humour and weather column in the SeaSide Times (www.seasidetimes.ca)
