SWS - ABOUT US
 

WELCOME TO SEVEREWARNINGSYSTEMS.COM: SevereWarningSystems.com is a severe weather early warning entity. We analyze global weather patterns, along with current trends on the outer parameter including ocean currents/temperature, wind fields, and circumstances leading up to a possible severe weather event. Our team performs detailed analysis on compiled data and the final behavior of these possible severe events. Our pre-event forecaster John Hallen has been researching and documenting the powerful phenomena of severe weather since 2001. Specializing in this pre-severe storm planning and being in the field, our core team has behind the scenes and on site experience in predicting a major severe weather event prior to its arrival.

The Core Team of SWS - John Hallen - Steve Korper - Patricia Hodowski - Mike Barham.
 

A word from John Hallen - Severe Weather Analyst / SWS Founder: As an avid weather enthusiast since the early years of youth, I have been into meteorology in the most analytical fashion. Always amused by what causes thunderstorms to form, I always chased thunderstorms in my teens and into my midlife. I have always been attracted to "why" tornadoes form and the properties lining up to cause them. Also being really touched by the destruction and fear they present when they occur, this is my driving force for Severe Warning Systems. If our team could be a part of a solution that can minimize property damage and further save lives, count me in !!!

Below is how I start.. a couple of weeks out... the next images is being in "the zone"... and of course.. the final count

Living and residing in Southern California and being a world traveled surfer and adventurer has been an asset. The understanding of oceanic behavior coinciding with atmospheric conditions is a key knowledge base for predicting of severe weather outbreaks, possible geographic location, and pinpoint of target arrival.

I have learned much about oceanography and its affect on meteorological events. I observed further research data on when the big waves would hit the coast, and measured up the size of the storms for being at the right place at the right time. In this detailed analysis, it was then that there was some correlation between when these powerful storms that hit the west coast and a following severe weather event in the mid-section of the U.S. As these "cold fronts" approached, I would further study the patterns in the Gulf of Mexico. The humidity caused from the warm ocean temperature would be observed as low level wind fields showed a northerly flow. In doing this analysis and compiling hundreds of pages of recorded data, as well as deep studies of the NOAA and SPC meteorology websites. I continued to research "anything" pertaining to mesocyclone activity. In putting this to practice, I have been able to be "in the zone" for the most powerful severe weather events in the heartland of the United States prior to their arrival. Since 2002, my studies and pre-planning have been successful. Of course there is "instinct", as I feel blessed to have witnesses countless tornado sightings "many at close range", numerous tornadic supercells, and the most powerful severe weather events imaginable.

At the end of the day, it is "how can I be part of a solution process that minimizes fear", and to further study a solution that can make the heartland a better place to live. That is my motive for founding SevereWarningSystems.com.




LOOKING FORWARD

OUR TEAM IS HARD AT WORK TO FIND A SOLUTION THAT BETTERS THE WARNING FOR A TORNADIC EVENT. WHILE JOHN IS HARD AT WORK IN THE FIELD AND DOES THE BUILDING AND DESIGN FOR THE WEBSITE, STEVE IS REALLY THE IMPORTANT PART. HE CRITIQUES AND ANALIZES JOHN'S DATA AS WE PERFORM TESTING ON WHAT WE ABSORB ON THE FACTUAL INFORMATION SIDE. STEVE KORPER'S EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND "IS SECOND TO NONE".

A BRIEFING ON SWS TEAM ASSISTANTS

PATRICIA AND MIKE ASSIST US IN FURTHERING OUR DATA TO A REALITY. PATRICIA TRACKS JOHN'S WHEREABOUTS WHEN IN THE FIELD, CHASING STORMS, FINANCE ASSISTANCE RESEARCH, AND SUPPORT OF ALL THE HARD WORK THAT GOES ON "BEHIND THE SCENES". MIKE'S PASSION FOR OUR CAUSE IS WHAT WE NEED FROM A PROJECT SPECIALIST. YOU CAN COUNT ON ANY OF THE TEAM TO DETAIL OUT ANY TASK ASSIGNED.
