My Name is DT-- its short for David Tolleris. I am a well known Energy and Grain Meteorologist located here in Richmond VA.
Here is the WEB site : http://wxrisk.com
and you can find me on FB https://www.facebook.com/WxRisk
and I am also on Twitter.
I forecast for wintergreen and Catalooche and a few others and some locations in the Great Lakes region as well.
One of the things I do DIFFERENTLY is the period of time I focus on. You see when you are the energy and AG trading fields most of the emphasis is on NOT the next 48 hrs ( which is where NWS is) but on day 3 day 7 day 10 day 12... out to 30 days.
Because I forecast in this time frame 7 days a week....365 days a year... all around the world... (anyone want to know about the developing Winter Wheat drought in the Ukraine and sw Russia?... just ask !!) the skills in this special type of forecasting have gotten to be pretty damn good. Ask me anbout Tornadoes and I often yawn.
For example the OCT 29 " surprise" Northeast snowstorm that hit the elevations over 800 feet ? My first post on that event -- the threat of a historic damaging snowstorm in portions of the ne-- was made OCT 22.
ANYWAY from time to time you are likely to see posts from me about winter weather patterns.
