A few weeks ago I attended the "last Friday of the month" meeting at WeatherAction.com
. In attendance was a film crew from the ABC network, we posted a YouTube
from the meeting, with a follow up news blog concerning the predictions WeatherAction forecast - Likely dangerous ‘killer’ tornados and thunderstorms in Central, North Eastern and Northern USA during the period 22 to 24 June 2009.
This is a copy email from Piers to the ABC film crew today.
Thanks for call great to get your message.
YES we are on for 22-24th massive thunderstorms, killer tornadoes, hail etc and the massive hail events in USA on 17th are part of the build-up - and confirmation so far of general trends & developments. There are some circumspect ('uncertain predictability') computer indications today of major thunderstorms in the 5 days starting 20th.
For our issued forecast see (re)attached - page 4 - issued just after press conference and in line my recording in Greenwich.
Thanks again for Greenwich it was great fun.
In more detail: The massive hail in USA Weds 17th is part of the precursor and build-up time window (within a day) and this hail is a parallel event to the East Pacific typhoon formation now underway*** which we predicted for actual formation in period 18-21June (although of course it is initiated by something a bit earlier and the 17 June USA event is in parallel with that tropical depression build up driver)
Looking forward to the piece and future coverage
