I am not going to share this post on my social platforms but figured some people may wonder onto this page and see "What else is Colin doing."
This page is a break from my typical Weather briefings and reports. In 2021 I am going to challenge myself to new weather forecasts and thoughts just to get better at doing these kinds of things, learn more myself, and become more experienced so I can get the trust of others. Weather and storm-chasing are just a hobby of mine and not a career and not what I am going to school for but through my desire to learn more about another hobby of mine I am ready to continue putting my experience out there.
So besides my usual weather briefings and or reports, I am going to start doing severe outlooks based on what I think is going to happen and where. Basically similar to the SPC's outlooks but I want to challenge myself to do it all on my own, compare mine with there's, and see how right or wrong I am about a severe weather event. This will not take this year for me to fully develop and I am sure I will continue to change techniques I use etc.
I usually make my own outlooks mostly for my briefings and obviously will still use them in them. This page is generally just for the outlooks themselves so myself and or someone doesn't have to read the whole briefing to find an outlook.
I am also going to do outlooks for most of the spring and summer for anywhere in the central and southern US. More or less just to get me more experience with doing this and get me better practice before our own season in the Spring and Summer.
All this is fun to me, it gives me something else to do and focus on, as well as exploring more interest in this field. I can't wait for the 2021 season and look forward to many fun systems to look at and forecast!
