WxRisk was the only well-known private weather company that correctly forecasted the recent severe cold and stormy winter of 2013-14, in the central and eastern U.S. as well as the quiet below normal east coast hurricane season in 2013. Our forecast about hurricane Sandy striking the Southern NJ coast was issued on OCT 21, 2012, eight days before actual landfall – at a time when most other forecasts called for Sandy to head out to sea and even stated that “It is not possible for Sandy to strike the southern NJ coast”.
During the winter of 2010-11, WxRisk forecasted the historic Christmas Day Blizzard (DEC25-26, 2010) that would drop 1 to 2 feet of snow from Norfolk VA, to NJ, NYC and SE Massachusetts while most other forecasts predicted less than 4 inches of snow.
