Freelance meteorological educator, trainer, and consultant under the brand The Weather Reporter, LLC. Former space launch meteorologist at Cape Canaveral AFS, FL. Vast operational meteorology experience obtained in support of nearly 400 manned and unmanned space launches from the early 1990's until my retirement in 2013. I have since returned to my other passion, that as an Adjunct Faculty Professor of Meteorology at Florida Institute of Technology. My vision and mission is to provide the same kind of expert meteorological consultation as I provided to the U.S. space program to a variety of industries that are highly dependent on weather conditions to conduct operations. Whether your business or industry involves agriculture, general construction and contracting, road construction and repair, painting, landscaping, marine, aviation, special events, photography, education, media, or any weather dependent business we provide the most advanced weather support around. Whether the need is for past, present, or future meteorological information TWR provides the information tailored to a specific industry. If you are serious about working around the weather don’t hesitate to contact me to provide weather support for your business or event operations.

GOES EAST GeoColor satellite imagery over Florida. Surface to mid level east to west oriented high pressure ridge axis has shifted slightly to the north and is now lying across the south central peninsula. In turn the deepest moisture has also shifted northward with drier air now over the southern half of the peninsula. This will lower the overall coverage of afternoon showers and thunderstorms over the southern half. A majority of the activity will be north of the I-4 corridor where again the deepest moisture now exists. Steering level winds will continue to direct this activity towards the northeast.

Areas currently void of clouds will have the highest potential for new development of showers and thunderstorms as daytime heating occurs and the sea breezes develop by late morning and early afternoon. Strengthening steering levels wind will continue to push activity the northeast . Upper level winds will continue to push thunderstorm anvil clouds towards the south and southwest.
