I have been running a meteorological consulting firm for 36+ years. I currently employ 15 meteorologists across the country and provide detailed research for radio stations, highway authorities, airports, and print media. I have also served as the chief meteorologist for a TV network for 31+ years. I’ve consulted and researched 1,000+ weather incidents for accidents, insurance claims, and all levels of court cases, dating back to 1985. I have provided expert testimony in county and state supreme court, state court of claims, and grand jury trials regarding weather criteria, and events 100+ times over the past 30 years. I could certainly take a look at the circumstances surrounding this incident.
