Hi! I’m Jack Sillin and I write about weather.

I’m a third-year atmospheric science student at Cornell University who has been blogging about the weather since 2011. While I’m not officially a meteorologist, I have accumulated a bit of experience forecasting both local weather (in western Maine and New Hampshire) as well as national/international weather during my time writing for weather.us and weathermodels.com. I also have experience programming in Python, teaching concepts in weather forecasting, and communicating forecast information to general audiences.


Weather Forecasting

I have experience forecasting the weather both in detail for small areas and in summary form for larger areas.

Weather Communication

I can distill and communicate complicated forecast information to enable greater understanding of forecast threats among the public.
