Wind Energy Doesn't Work in the Northwest, Either

No surprise here. Meteorologist Dr. Cliff Mass analyzes the collapse of wind energy when the cold wave reached Washington-Oregon and the surround area.

    Mike, I respectfully ask you to check with your NWS contacts about the IDSS program referenced by Mr. Graham. This paradigm shift in the NWS occurred roughly the same time warning verification began to slide. It effectively changed meteorologists time and resources away from weather science toward partner support, social media interaction and the production of graphics. Also, you are on the right track with forecaster training. What used to be a several week residency course for radar and warning operations in Norman, OK changed to on-line learning many years ago, with predictable results.
