Operational & Consulting Meteorologist (Current Employee) – Oakville, ON – 29 April 2013
A typical day starts off with now-casting for non-severe and severe weather for verification purposes. Then compare all client forecasts with current weather to make sure all is going to plan. New data arrives around 4hrs into shift, compare new data with old and also see if new data initialized well with current weather. Now becomes the hard part, forecast for all of the eastern domain (1.8 million square miles) for all aspects of weather. Once forecast is done, compare previous forecast to current weather to see if any further now-casting needs to be done will shift is done.
