Weather Weenie Hall of Fame



Will Leverenz

Congratulations to the first inductee. His comment on July 24, 2013, regarding the evaporation rate while drying his hair being less due to the humidity, easily earned him a place in The Hall of Fame. Here are his other earlier entries:

Today there was one of many discussions about the developing tropical systems, Gustav and Hanna. Will Leverenz proved his meteorological mettle by coming up with The Fujiwhara Effect, to describe the interaction between two nearby cyclones.

Will uses an iPhone VPN app to access one of the AWIPS test servers to display a recent METAR (April 27 at 1252 EDT) from Reagan National Airport

Will earned an unprecedented third entry today. As we were crossing East-West Highway in Silver Spring, MD, Will commented on the standing waves in the asphalt.

During a discussion at lunch, Will stated his preference for the auto-correct feature of the iPhone. He said, "I like it because I don't have to type 'ageostrophic' all the time."

During his flight to Las Vegas, Will measured the cabin pressure of the aircraft (in millibars) and posted it to Instagram.

The x-axis is the time from when his was seated until drinks were served (~1 hour).
