For those who have donated to my site, your help has been greatly appreciated.  For those not aware, donations to my site help me offset my out of pocket expenses…such as some of the model maps you view on here, which are only available due to my subscription to the corresponding sites.  The F5 Data maps I post as well, is another out of pocket expense (monthly subscription).  Updates to software (weather related), and costs for my domain name are also out of pocket to me.  To donate, please click the DONATE button to the right.  Any help you provide is immensely appreciated!

Winter weather discussions only cover from the central U.S., and eastward.  Given that winter weather can be vastly expansive, time does not allow for me to go very in depth into items such as detailing the forecast for various areas, or exact calculations for snowfall, to when a mix might begin or end (etc.), as compared to severe weather projections and hurricane forecasts.  The winter weather discussion is meant to give the viewer a general idea as to what to expect during the forecast times mentioned.  The NWS Hazard and Warnings map will allow you to view up to date forecast discussions for your area, or the area you are interested in.

To my “Weather Family”.

I have not been on the past few days, as I had just gotten out of the hospital on Fri. evening.  Went to urgent care on Wed. afternoon, and the sent me to the ER.  Initial exam was thought to be my Gallbladder.  After an ultrasound and 2 different scans on Thur, the one Dr. ruled out my gallbladder.  On Fri., the Gastro Dr. did an endoscopy, and determined I have started with very tiny ulcers in my stomach.  I have to call this coming week for follow up appointments with both my primary care, and the gastro. Dr.  I will return to forecasting as soon as I am able.

Thank you all,



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.

    Sorry for the late post, Storm. Ulcers are nothing to play with and I am glad they found them when they were tiny. If you apply the same thoroughness to your health as you do to your forecasting, you will have this beat in no time. You have provided us with the tools we need to get the information we require in your absence, so you are helping us even when you are not posting. Prayers your way, my friend.

  3. Thank all of you for your prayers and well wishes. I truly appreciate each and every one of you. Been researching some home remedies to heal this. Found some good stuff such as cabbage and carrot juice (homemade), bananas, coconut and coconut milk, etc. Gonna give it a whirl.

    Storm, take your time and get well. As many of us have learned, your celestial team may be providing you an opportunity to have a little quiet time to meditate or maybe “reset” a few things. We’ll be praying for your health and your loved ones. Best!
