NEWSLETTER JUNE 2003
|Welcome to the June issue of the WEATHERFUN Newsletter|
|Hello Weatherfun members, and welcome to the June issue of our Newsletter.|
Well, here we are after June 1st, and the official meteorological start of summer. Well, in some parts of the country summer has arrived, but in other parts of the nation like up here in the Northeast spring has not even arrived. We have had a very cold and wet spring here in Rhode Island. Other parts of the nation has had a very large outbreak of tornados, and along with very warm weather. So, it has been a very active and unusual spring.
We, are also into the Atlantic 2003 Hurricane Season. As you know the season goes from June 1st. to the end of November. Dr. Gray has predicted an above average hurricane season this year. I had the pleasure of visiting a Hurricane hunter plane this past month in New Bedford, Mass. After visiting the plane, I had the pleasure of attending a presentation about the 2003 Hurricane Season given by Max Mayfield of the Hurricane Center out of Miami, Fla. I also had the distinct pleasure of meeting Max, talk about the up and coming season, and also about Weatherfun. He is very interested in Weatherfun, and also our concept. He will be visiting our site, and he said that he will be getting back to me at a later time.
2ND WEATHERFUN REUNION: As you know our reunion is coming up July 31st to August 3rd. In and around the Warren, Rhode Island area. Susan and I are currently planning the reunion, activities and our grand finale cookout at our home here in Warren, Rhode Island. Along with a presentation by Bill of his visit to the Storm prediction Center, we will also have Carolyn Eagan a long range forecaster from Brown University who will put on a presentation and pass some material out on how she prepares her long range forecast. Also one cannot forget Professor Bill's quiz that he will conduct on my deck. We had a very good time last year with Bill's quiz, and he told me that if you thought that last year's quiz was easy wait until this year's. Also some surprises coming up for the Cookout. A certain lady from Md. AKA snowlady has been very busy for the past few months, and she has a lot of surprises in store for you. If you miss this reunion folks, I know you will be very sorry, so do not be sorry. Attend this year's Weatherfun's 2nd reunion. Further details to follow.
