Anyone who has followed my work over the decades has probably heard me use the phrase “downslope wind” more than any three other meteorologists combined. I say that only half-jokingly.

Harvey has been in Boston TV since 1977, and his grasp of…

That doesn’t mean there won’t be any chilly days at all, but it does mean conditions favor Pacific air dominating our part of the country, rather than Arctic ai…

Global warming continues, and has been going on for decades. Every location on the globe is not affected equally, but for most locations in the northern hemisphere, the trend is undeniable. In the lower 48, only a small area in the north central states has seen a bit of cooling since 1970 in the summers. Globally, the mean monthly temperatures have been rising month af…

After college and before finally pursuing my TV career, I spent some time doing decidedly non-meteorological work. The best though poorest paying period was my couple of years as an accomplished flunky at the adult radio station, WNEW-AM in New York. Among my cherished experiences was the chance to be a minor functionary for the father of modern sports play-by-play b…
