Joe Stevens Tasks Many of Our Region’s Weather Experts for a Winter Forecast

Joe Stevens has done us all a favor by tasking several of our region’s more well-known meteorologists for a Winter Forecast for the 2008-2009 ski season.  FYI, Joe has been a regular contributor to for the last several years and he offers an invaluable asset to those of us who love the mountains from Western Maryland all the way down through the Appalachians into North Carolina.  Joe is a great friend of mine – who just happens to have more television contacts than the Geico, caveman guy has hair on his head!  Those contacts includes the top weather gurus of the region, such as Jim Cantore and Paul Goodloe of THE WEATHER CHANNEL and hundreds of other top meteorologists.

We’ve been blessed with a lot of interest from the local news media as well – in the form of Brad Panovich of WCNC NBC 6 in Charlotte and Matthew East of Carolina News 14.  Both of these guys are regular contributors on the website providing invaluable weather content.

Joe Stevens did us all a HUGE favor by making contact with numerous of these guys and more to get their take on what each felt that the Winter of 2008-2009 will offer us. We’ll be posting some additional information soon, but we wanted to give Joe’s first column of the season a HUGE plug.
