I want to tell you a little about me. My name is Jon Flatley. I'm a meteorologist with a Bachelor's degree from Millersville University (1991) and Master's degree from Penn State University (1995). I worked in both the operational and research sides of the National Weather Service, with a combined 7 years of service in the Federal Government from 1991-93 and 1998-2004. I first worked at the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (formerly National Meteorological Center) in Camp Springs, MD and later for National Weather Service Headquarters in Silver Spring, MD. I was also an adjunct instructor at Millersville University and filled in to teach introductory meteorology lecture and lab during the 1996-97 semesters.
I've always had a big interest in climate change. And hope you share my enthusiasm for learning what might be in store for us as a society if we continue to live "business as usual". I will continue to add the latest research in this field as it becomes available. The site started in the early summer of 2011 and will continue to grow. Please come in and take a look. I hope you enjoyed learning a little about me. Please stop in from time-to-time to check on the progress as building continues. :)
Today - although not currently working in the field (there are not many opportunities in my hometown of Harrisburg if you aren't a broadcast meteorologist), weather and climate will always be close to my heart. My passion for weather and climate will manifest itself in various ways, as this site is one of them. I live with my two kids and my fiancee and her two kids and call Dauphin, PA home.
