Would you like access to the most accurate and reliable local weather forecasts? Since 1999 Mark has served as the official Rockland County, NY meteorologist on WRCR Radio Rockland, and for many years before that on WRKL Radio. Mark has been a member of the Westchester County Association of Municipal Public Works Administrators since 1981, and have served Westchester and Rockland County highway departments with the most accurate, local weather forecasts. Mark has provided the most accurate, reliable and localized weather forecasts available anywhere in the Northeast.
Mark can provide many references – including loyal, long-time WRCR listeners who will tell you how amazingly accurate the local WRCR weather forecasts have been over the years. Instead of relying on the usual computer models, Mark uses an entirely different method that focuses on correlations and key indicators of different climate zones and how these patterns affect southeastern New York and western Connecticut. There are very few meteorologists who are as familiar with the unique aspects of the Litchfield County climate and weather patterns as Mark is as well as the specific micro-climates.
In addition to predicting the weather in southeastern New York and western Connecticut, Mark has conducted 230 very successful, hands-on weather workshops that connect math and science, for elementary and middle school students in New York State, Connecticut and Massachusetts. Mark has presented these unique workshops at schools in rural, suburban, and urban settings. Mark worked with the New York City Parks Department at parks and recreation centers in the Bronx, and at environmental education centers and museums in Connecticut. These workshops connect science, math, art and language arts in a hands-on, interactive way.
