The Cal U Meteorology Club will welcome Jason Samenow as part of its Spring Colloquia Series. He will speak at noon April 8 in Eberly Hall, Room 120.

Samenow is the Washington Post’s weather editor. He founded CapitalWeather.com, the first professional weather blog on the Internet, in early 2004. The blog was absorbed by the Post in 2008 and became the Capital Weather Gang, which he has since led.

Samenow has been a weather enthusiast since age 10 (1987). He earned a degree in environmental science from the University of Virginia, focusing in atmospheric science. He went on to earn a master’s degree in atmospheric science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2000.

From 2000 to 2010, he worked as a climate change science analyst for the federal government, monitoring, analyzing and communicating the science of climate change.

He is a past chairman of the D.C. Chapter of the American Meteorological Society, and a Weather and Society Integrated Studies Fellow. He also holds the National Weather Association Digital Seal of Approval.

He lives with his wife and two children in Washington, D.C.
