My name is Paul Dorian and I have been working in Valley Forge, PA since 1990 as a meteorologist/systems engineer for The SI Organization, Inc. (formerly Lockheed Martin).I plan to occasionally post blogs to the liveweatherblogs.com web site and hopefully complement the insightful blogs already posted here by several great meteorologists.I currently operate my company’s weather web site where I post my own forecasts, discussions and videos with a focus on our company locations of Philly, DC, NYC, Denver and LA.The video discussions usually emphasize the near-term weather situations, but I occasionally expand to other topics including solar cycles/sunspots, stratospheric warming, oceanic cycles, teleconnections, and even astronomical events such as meteor showers and comets.Please visit the weather web site at thesiweather.com.
I received Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in meteorology (1981, 1983) from Penn State University. As a grad student, I worked with Dr. Gregory Forbes, currently with The Weather Channel and severe weather expert, and Dr. John Cahir, Professor of Meteorology, (Emeritus), Vice Provost and Dean, (Emeritus).I began my professional career as a meteorologist with NASA’s Climate Branch from 1983-1985 at the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) in Greenbelt, Maryland and my work continued there with the Severe Storms Branch from 1985-1990. While at the NASA Severe Storms Branch, I worked closely with Dr. Stephen Koch, current Director of NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL), Paul Kocin (winter weather expert), and Dr. Louis Uccellini, current Director of the National Weather Service, National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP).
The SI Organization, Inc. (the SI) is a leading provider of full life cycle, mission-focused systems engineering and integration services to the U.S. Intelligence Community, Department of Defense and other agencies. As a remote-sensing industry leader, the SI has provided systems engineering solutions for state-of-the-art sensor technology and end-to-end imagery analysis and has been heavily involved with weather-related activities throughout its 40-year history. The SI has worked with the U.S. Air Force Weather Agency on requirements for remote sensing and the verification of community weather products. The SI has also played a key role in the Air Force Research Laboratory’s efforts to improve its atmospheric model called MODTRAN. The SI has supported multiple worldwide ground truth data collects with customized weather forecasts and developed requirements and design for civilian and military weather satellites, including NPOESS, DMSP, Landsat and GOES. In addition to the Air Force, the SI has worked closely with a number of government agencies on weather-related projects, including NASA, NOAA, Naval Meteorological and Oceanographic Command, Naval Postgraduate School and the Intelligence Community.
Asking for Southern Monmouth County, NJ weather....we are too far south for NYC weather to be accurate and too far east for Philly weahter and seem to be left out of the KNOW. Looking for decent snow fall this winter. If any one could forecast for Neptune, Belmar, Spring Lake area, that would be appreciated. Good Luck
