TOPIC: Critical Offshore Weather Analysis by NOAA - Learn to be Safe while Offshore


We are very lucky to have landed two very experienced NOAA Offshore Weather experts to help all of us make the right decisions when heading far Offshore. James and Gary are some of the world's leading scientists in this area.

You owe it to yourself, your crew and your family to come an listen to what they have to teach us.
.
.


BIO # 1: James Connolly of NOAA began his weather career with the National Weather Service (NWS) in 2003 on the High Plains of Nebraska where he gained significant expertise on severe convective storms and radar analysis.
A Connecticut native, he moved to the New York, NY office in Upton New York in 2007. While working rotating shifts as a forecaster, James led the NWS climate program for the New York Metropolitan Area, and subsequently assumed leadership of the local marine program in 2015. He has been working to enhance meteorological marine services for local area boaters and marine stakeholders.

BIO # 2: Gary Conte has worked as a Meteorologist for the National Weather Service (NWS) since 1979, for more than 37 years. Since 1993, he has held the position of Warning Coordination Meteorologist at the NWS New York, NY Office in Upton, at Brookhaven National Lab on Long Island.
Gary provides guidance for the local warning and service programs for more than 18 million people. This includes advance notifications of potential high impact weather hazards to key customers, partners and the media for the protection of life and property and to enhance the national economy. As the local NWS Customer Service Representative, Gary is the “main” contact for Outreach and Education of our services. He also serves as a liaison to the local media and works forecast shifts.

I have heard very good things about your offshore nights as being very informative and a good way guys to meet up but I would not consider NOAA an expert on anything forecast or fisheries wise.

No one has complained more than me about NOAA forecasts, but I'm going to give them a chance to speak directly to us on exactly how they do their forecasting.

They're our employees (U.S. Government) so I have no problem really giving them a good grilling !

I'd like to come up from the island for a few questions myself. Thanks for not taking my post as a slight to your offshore nights.

Absolutely we would. We had enough money left over last year to buy the Tiagra 50WLRSA for Offshore Night # 1 this year.

Whatever you have is very much appreciated!
