Jerry Shields founded ShieldsWeather back in 2000 when he created the popular website SooWeather.com. From there he has continued to build his meteorological career with freelance forecasting work for the OPP, snow removal companies, lawyers and local media. He also is the lead for a team of government meteorologists that forecast high impact weather for emergency management. His educational background is in York University’s Earth and Atmospheric Science program as well as Mississippi State’s Operational Meteorology Diploma program. When Jerry isn’t chasing extreme weather near his home on St. Joseph Island you will often find him speaking to groups about the value of meteorologists over computer models in the forecasting of extreme high impact weather.
