Melita Weather Associates
For more than a decade, the most accurate weather forecasts over any time scale have come from only one source, and that is the experienced Meteorologists that comprise Melita Weather Associates (MWA).
Below is just one of the large suite of computer generated meteorological forecasts generated by our proprietary 30 day ensemble model.

Long Range Forecast Summary
September 12 Update: Winter-like cold air emanating from northern Canada is on the move through the northern Rockies and northern Plains, while weakening substantially as it spreads into the summer-like warm and humid air-mass lingering in the South and East. longer range models are latching onto another strong and extended cooling event across the eastern half of the country in late September to delay return of sustained above average warmth until closer to mid October.

MWA does not simply repackage or reformat the same freely available weather forecast computer model output, or attempt to deliver that same consistently erroneous Government data to you a minute or 2 faster each day. There are plenty of so called “weather providers” out there to choose from made up primarily of computer programmers as opposed to experienced Meteorologists. More than one of or our world-renown Atmospheric Scientists have been conducting specialized research for more than 50 years.
The 3 lead Meteorologists comprising MWA are Dave Melita, Pete Stamus and Dr. John Snook. Together they bring a unique alliance of meteorological expertise to the table at an opportune time to enhance long range weather forecasts using a proprietary model based on the most sophisticated atmospheric computer model in the world developed over a span of decades at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder Colorado. The NCAR model is actually a group of 4 distinct stand alone models known as the Community Climate System 3.
The links that follow will describe aspects of the proprietary and innovative computer model that we have developed. We strongly believe its introduction into the operational forecast environment will forever change the process in which operational weather forecasts are prepared, and the manner in which energy and agricultural trading concerns utilize forecasts in their daily business.

March 20 - Long Range Summary
Winter-like arctic air in place across the entire Eastern half of the U.S. will linger longest over the Southeast into early Tuesday at near 20° below average intensity where NWS overnight Freeze Warnings remain in place. Meanwhile the central U.S. is already warming above average and this warmer airmass will reach the Eastern U.S. midweek in milder southerly flow ahead of the next series of closely spaced Pacific storms lined up to move onto the West Coast at 36-48 hour intervals. The lead Western storm forecast to eject east of the Rockies midweek and the East Saturday will not tap into cold air nearly as intense as 20°-30° below average temperatures observed last week. However, very cold air by spring standards remains available over snow covered Canada to be tapped by the parade of coast to coast tracking storms to frequently cool temperatures across most of the Eastern half of the U.S. to at least moderately (7°-10°) below average levels starting during the latter half of this week. Several additional rounds of late season snow are also forecast across most of the northeastern quadrant of the U.S. including a potential significant winter storm in the interior Northeast at the end of the 6-10 day period (Mar 28-29). More importantly all extended models prolong this active cold-biased U.S. storm pattern devoid of sustained above average warmth (or Southeastern ridging), adding confidence to continued delay of full establishment of spring-like temperatures across most of the Eastern U.S. into mid April.
If your business or career depends on correctly predicting the weather, you can follow the pack or you can get ahead with MWA’s proprietary models and expert forecasts.
