Hello everyone I’m Jeff Berardelli, the Weather Professor. The term comes from my style of delivering weathercasts on TV and teaching the weather in the classroom. I feel by explaining meteorological concepts in an easy to understand, interesting way, I can spread my passion for weather to the masses. My passion for weather started at the age of 3. After graduating Cornell University I worked in Elmira NY, Buffalo NY and Tampa FL. In 2003 I landed my dream job as an on-air meteorologist for CBS in NYC and the CBS Network Early Show. In 2007, missing my love of the great state of Florida, I moved back to hurricane alley to work for CBS in Miami. I have been here 5 years now.

I have been blogging since the late 90s to be exact, before the term blogging was even a thought! My blogging subsided in 2007 when I founded ZoomRadar™
interactive weather. Now with ZoomRadar growing by leaps and bounds I have decided to revive this blog and reach out to our friends in the weather community. Having worked most of my years in the Northeast and Florida my expertise is in Tropical Weather during the summer and Nor’easters in winter. So look for most of my posts to be geared towards those topics. And look around the site; we have tons of free content for use by weather enthusiasts and bloggers.

Thanks for stopping by and please email me at  questions@zoomradar.com

It wasn’t until middle school where meteorology was a taught subject, however, weather intrigued me around the age of 5. Born and raised in one of the most fascinating weather cities imaginable, Syracuse, New York, allowed for my passion to continue growing. Whether it was heading a few miles north into some of the most intense lake effect snowfall in the winter, or chasing severe thunderstorms in the summer, the science amazed me. I’m currently enrolled at SUNY Brockport where in May I will have earned my bachelors degree in atmospheric science in meteorology. My interests are in synoptic scale and near term mesoscale analysis and hope to one day pursue a career path in weather forecasting.
