"From the Lee Side" is the blog of wunderground's newest featured blogger--Lee Grenci. Lee put up his first post today, an educational piece on "Arctic Air Masses." He did an earlier guest post in Angela's blog, "The science of Sandy's transition", on whether or not Sandy was a hurricane at landfall (it wasn't.) Lee resides in Pennsylvania, and just retired as senior lecturer in Meteorology at Penn State University, where he was the lead faculty member for their online certificate in weather forecasting. I've been enjoying Lee's writings for many years in Weatherwise magazine, where he is a frequent contributor. Welcome, Lee!
While I'm on the subject of featured bloggers, I want to draw attention to the latest post by TWC's Stu Ostro, "Reflections on a surreal superstorm and the 2012 hurricane season". He discusses NHC's decision not to issue Hurricane Warnings for Sandy, as well as how climate change may have influenced the storm. TWC's Bryan Norcross has also posted his take on NHC's decision not to post hurricane warnings for Sandy.
