Kasey Cornette, age 11, is one of our most promising young meteorologists and an avid user of Weather Defender. Kasey has prepared the following 2010-2011 Winter Forecast.
"This is my forecast of the winter of 2010 and 2011. I took a variety of forecast models,especialy Weather Defender,and averaged them out:
"I monitord the temeratures over the year,the fruit trees,and the animals gathering them. I thought about some of the things that I had learned.Since it had been such a hot summer with little rain and so much fruit on the the trees that got ripe and started rotting so early, it would be an overall early and below average tempature winter for the plains and Ohio Vally area.Also a later than average winter and above average temperature winter for all of the south,and the far Northeast area.Im expecting the first snowfall to be in the state of Wyomying around September 21st thru 29th.And Omaha Nebraska looks like it could have a pretty bad winter.
"The colors represent this.The light blueish greenish color means a mild winter,the white means cold and snowy,and the pink means bitterly cold and dry. But besides that,it has been a very dry summer here,yet we have had two maijor floods,the first flood we had 7 inches of rain in two days,and the seconed one we got 6 inches of rain in 45 minutes.The water rose 6 inches in 15 minutes in town. small creeks that are usualy 2 inches deep were 10 feet deep to 12 feet deep."
"I am the owner of Team 4Warn we are based out of Buffalo NY. Weather Defender is what I run on my vehicle and encourage other to as well. July 2010 we had a storm that we followed for 3 days on Weather Defender all along the lakes it was dropping tornados. After learning the software and closely following this storm it was determined that it was headed for the southern tier of NY. We alerted friends and family and also the national weather service. The out come of this storm was 2 EF1 and 2 EF2 tornados. NOT ONE PERSON WAS HARMED because of advanced notice. Now you can say what you want But I stand behind Weather Defender and in my mind it was because of advanced 3 day notice that Weather Defender provided us. Where else can a chaser get 3 days of notice? This software works and it saves life and property! My word is what I make my living off of and Team 4Warn stand behind Weather Defender and backs it 100%
I now have no fears of leaving my family behind when chasing because I have the most accurate date for that curial moment. Thank You for making a product that works"
