The time has come to make some changes
at NW Weather and consequently in 2006 I will no longer be providing daily
forecasts for wind sports through nwweather.com. Forecasting for my fellow
windsurfers has been a labor of love over the past 5 years but publishing
7 times a week has been difficult.
(which includes iKiteSurf) has
agreed to have me join their forecast team on a part-time basis. This
will allow me to continue forecasting for wind sports while giving me
relief from the 7 day schedule.
I understand this decision
will create disappointment for some loyal users of NW Weather, as forecasts
will no longer be available on this website. However, I know most of you
are already members of iWindsurf.com
and encourage the rest to join this excellent service. By combining with
this new team my local knowledge and weather experience will be used to
improve all the weather offerings at iWindsurf.com. Forecasts are updated
through the day and available via website, wireless web, and pager. Further,
we all have access to many resources unavailable to NW Weather. It's clear
the iWindsurf team shares my enthusiasm for both meteorology and windsurfing.
Working with other meteorologists will be a welcome change from the solo
operations of the past 5 years.
I want to thank everyone for
supporting me over the years. I really enjoy all the feedback on the forecasts
and will keep the dialog open going forward. I will still utilize NW Weather
to offer weather related consulting services as long as they do not conflict
with the work I am doing for iWindsurf/iKitesurf. Please email me with
any comments at firstname.lastname@example.org
