Fully Qualified Meteorologists

Jerry Shields founded ShieldsWeather back in 2000 when he created the popular website  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.

Daniel Liota is a graduate of York University with a Specialized Honours Bachelor of Science in Atmospheric Science, and Certificates in both Meteorology and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) & Remote Sensing. As a student he served as a Research Assistant for a government agency in a project that was conducted to study lake breezes and their effects on local meteorological regimes in various locations of Southern Ontario. Upon graduation, his career began in a role as a Consulting Meteorologist within the private industry, and he is now an Operational Meteorologist for a government branch that forecasts high-impact weather in an emergency management setting. Alongside a strong passion for severe weather, another of Daniel’s areas of interest involves the delivery of communications within the field of meteorology.
