As a self professed weather geek I am happy to share the news that a HoCo loco has been named the new director of the National Weather Service. According to this story by Jason Samenow in The Washington Post, the service “appointed 24-year NWS veteran Dr. Louis Uccellini as its next director.”
“In addition to his federal government experience, Uccellini, a resident of
, is one of the co-authors
(with Paul Kocin) of the book “Northeast Snowstorms”, a definitive account of
the region’s most impactful snow events. With a possible historic blizzard
slated for Columbia,
Md. New England Friday, the timing of
his appointment is certainly fitting.”
maybe we can just hang out and talk about snow and cold fronts and stuff."
Count me in for that. I'll even buy a round...or two.
Congratulations Dr. Uccellini.
