Mysterious New Weather Blog

A weather blog appeared in November seemingly out of nowhere. It’s called Convective Solutions. It’s odd for reasons I can’t quite put my finger on.  When you Google it you get results for “Convective Solutions LLC.” An LLC is a type of corporation, but I can’t really see any reason why a business would be blogging about the weather.

In any case, I’ve been following it and a few weeks ago I installed a feed from Convective Solutions to NYSB, in the “Eastern Ski Blog” Section.  Whoever is the mysterious meteorologist is…I like the work being done.

Here’s an excerpt from the most recent blog entry titled: High Confidence Remains for Stormy Pattern Ahead.” Among other things the entry notes a monster coastal storm implied by the GFS about ten days out. I’ve noticed it too… but don’t really have the model experience to know whether it merits attention. If nothing else, we’ve got another met who sees pattern improvement ahead:

“…it looks like our next chance of snow is around next Thursday (Dec. 3rd) with another blob of cold, Arctic air pouring into the region and a coastal low passing well east of Nantucket, leaving New England on the cold side, rather than the warm side.

After that (DISCLAIMER: Things can change and even disappear this far out) around the 8th of December, yet another coastal low explodes east of the Delmarva Peninsula and there is PLENTY of cold air in place to give us some good snow.”
