Good afternoon Weather2020 bloggers,
We are releasing our winter forecast here and then sending it out in other social media platforms later this evening. There is a lot to go over, but let me begin by introducing you to our growing team of meteorologists. They have all had input into this developing weather pattern that we are still identifying at this moment.
Meteorologist Jeff Penner and I have worked together for going on 24 years now. Meteorologist Doug Heady works at KOAM-TV in the Joplin market. He calls the LRC, the Heady Pattern, and regardless of what it is called someday in the future, we are on the same page. He has been meticulously working on the cycling pattern for over 15 years now and he has added a lot of insight. Meteorologist Brett Anthony works as Chief Meteorologist at KJRH-TV in Tulsa, OK. He has been using the LRC for years and has been bringing this breakthrough technology to the Tulsa television market making accurate predictions weeks to months before storm systems hit. And, meteorologist Eswar Iyer, a University of Oklahoma grad-student is about to receive his Masters Degree in 2016. He has been forecasting for Weather2020 the past few years. We have a growing team of five meteorologists, a great technology team, and some new business insight that we will be announcing sometime soon.
Our team is working hard as we attempt to solve this complex atmospheric puzzle. We have breakthrough technology that we are sharing with all of you, and we thank you for your participation in this LRC Forecast Experience Blog. Let me begin by some statements from Jeff Penner.
Jeff recently took a trip across Kansas to Colorado and experienced water on wheat fields, a rare site over western Kansas. It is usually quite dry at this time of the year. From the water on the wheat fields to severe weather outbreaks, a 20″ blizzard across parts of western Kansas, and a major ice storm from parts of Oklahoma north into central Kansas, this has active beginning to what will likely be a wild winter ride. This all happened in the past 30 days. Jeff Penner, “It has been quite a two month period in the Hard Red Winter Wheat areas, since the new LRC weather pattern has been setting up. Precipitation has been plentiful in this normally arid part of the country this time of year. Here are some rainfall totals between October 1st and November 30th
- Dodge City, KS: 5.19” (208% of average)
- Wichita, KS: 5.25” (125% of average)
- Amarillo, TX: 4.98” (202% of average)
- Oklahoma City, OK: 8.02” (141% of average)
This is what has already happened. Now, what is going to happen in the next three months, through winter, then through spring, and into summer? Here is what we are still working on and expect in-depth details on the following topics during the next few weeks:
- We will go into each region of the United States and make specific forecasts
- We will identify the cycle length of this pattern
- We will get more specific predicting the dates of when storm systems, cold outbreaks, and warmer periods will hit
- We will look ahead to the spring severe weather season
- We will have a skier forecast
- Agriculture and energy forecasts are being produced now through our Weather2020 business model
And, one last thing. Over 3 million views of our 12 week forecasts and videos have been made through the popular 1Weather app. This has previously only been available on Android devices. These will now be available on IOS before Christmas. We will keep you updated.
Let’s start with a video of this developing pattern:

I will be adding some concluding statements later on this evening.
