Introducing our summer intern, Justin Grieser

For the first time, Capital Weather Gang has an intern. Please join me in welcoming Justin Grieser, who will be writing blog posts and working on special projects for us this summer. Many of you are likely already familar with Justin, who comments under the handle “meteorolinguist.” Justin has a unique background, as described in his biography:

Justin Grieser

Born and raised in Alexandria, Va., Justin attributes his early interest in meteorology to extensive childhood travels throughout Europe and North America. From an early age, Justin enjoyed escaping D.C.’s unrelenting summer heat during family vacations to his mother’s homeland in the Austrian Alps. While no longer the cold weather lover he used to be, Justin still loves the excitement of a good snowstorm.

Much to his disappointment, Justin missed D.C.’s historic 2009-2010 winter while teaching English in France last year. Yet he would like to thank the Capital Weather Gang for its extensive coverage of Snowmageddon during his time abroad.

In addition to his self-taught background in meteorology, Justin recently completed coursework on climate systems and severe weather at George Mason University. Fluent in German, French, and several other languages, Justin aspires to combine his passion for both the natural and social sciences in a policy-oriented line of work.

Justin’s initial blog post for CWG will appear shortly. Stay tuned...

Jason is currently the Washington Post’s weather editor. A native Washingtonian, Jason has been a weather enthusiast since age 10.
