Good day everyone!  Due to my new schedule at work, I haven’t been here lately.  Had some lengthy personal business yesterday as well.  This will have to be a short one today, and I hope to have a full update on Friday.

Most of the nation will remain under some pretty cold temperatures over the next 48 hours.  Soon after, and toward the 72 hour frame of the forecast, minimum temperatures begin to modify, with a little warmer regime creeping north.  The next 72 hours doesn’t sem to provide much in the way of snowfall, based on the current 06Z GFS accumulation output.

About palmharborforecastcenter

I am a Tropical Forecast meteorologist, providing hurricane forecasts during the Atlantic Hurricane Season. I retired from the U.S. Coast Guard in July of 2001. Meteorology became my passion in high school, and I have continued my educational background in meteorology since 1996, when I undertook the study of Tropical Meteorology. While working toward my degree, I had to unexpectedly withdraw from college due to my oldest sons medical reasons. I do however, meet the educational criteria of the AMS to be recognized as a meteorologist. Studies include, but are not limited to the Navy Aerographers Mate course, Naval METOC meteorology course, Meteorology 2010 Sophomore level course while attending St. Petersburg College, Clearwater, FL., Basic Forecasting course for operational meteorologists from Rapid WX, meteorology institute, a four month meteorological internship, and extensive research on numerous meteorological topics such as the MJO, NAO, satellite imagery interpretation, etc. I have been forecasting Tropical Weather (Tropical Storms and Hurricanes) since 1996, with my main client being three different Coast Guard Commands.
