Bernie Rayno
Bernie Rayno
Bernie Rayno is an Expert Senior Meteorologist and Afternoon Forecast Manager for AccuWeather, Inc. Bernie was born in Beaver Meadows, PA, a town 45 minutes south-southwest of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. His interest in meteorology was sparked early--he was bitten by the weather bug in Kindergarten and soon developed an interest in snowstorms.

AccuWeather offered ongoing updates leading up to the game on, featuring predictions, columns, and commentary by some of AccuWeather's most prominent meteorologists, including Bernie Rayno, Elliot Abrams, Henry Margusity, and Evan Myers.
"There had been some healthy debate on as to the game conditions, but it became clear as we evaluated weather patterns collectively that the game was going to take place between two cold systems," Bernie Rayno, Senior Expert Meteorologist and Executive Producer of Video Broadcasting for AccuWeather, Inc. said.

Average temperatures for this time of year in those regions are generally closer to 45 and 40 F (7.2 and 4.4 C), respectively, said Bernie Rayno, a meteorologist with Accuweather.
While it's not necessarily inaccurate to refer to the event as the "polar vortex," Rayno said, the increased hype around this phrase since January's deep chill has warped people's perceptions of what is actually a fairly common weather phenomenon. [Weirdo Weather: 7 Rare Weather Events]
"We have seen this happen every winter in the past 24 years I have been a meteorologist, but this winter, it has happened more frequently in the upper Midwest and Northeast," Rayno told Live Science.
The polar vortex, despite what its name may imply, is not a storm but a "planetary-scale mid- to high-latitude circumpolar cyclonic circulation, extending from the middle troposphere to the stratosphere," according to a portion of the American Meteorological Society's recently updated definition. (The middle troposphere and stratosphere are components of the Earth's atmosphere.)
That vortex is always present, Rayno said, but it's generally trapped at polar latitudes due to a barricade created by the jet stream, the air current that travels from west to east across the United States. But when the jet stream sinks farther south than usual due to changes in weather patterns, it can allow cold air to flood south and bathe the country in unusually bitter temperatures.
While temperatures this week are not expected to plunge as low as they did in the January event, Rayno said that this may be the coldest event of the season relative to average temperatures for the time of year.
And if the cold weren't enough to get folks anxious for spring to come, a snowstorm is also expected to hit the Northeast directly before the bitter temperatures descend on the region, Rayno said. - Bangor, Maine WVII ABC 7 and WFVX Fox 22, 25 Aug 2012 [cached]
Bernie Rayno
Bernie Rayno is an Expert Senior Meteorologist and Afternoon Forecast Manager for AccuWeather, Inc. Bernie was born in Beaver Meadows, PA, a town 45 minutes south-southwest of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. His interest in meteorology was sparked early--he was bitten by the weather bug in Kindergarten and soon developed an interest in snowstorms. While growing up, Bernie kept a log of current weather maps that he copied from A.M. Weather, a PBS show he watched religiously. His devotion to the weather soon gave him the reputation among friends and family as someone to turn to for the latest weather forecasts. Bernie graduated from Hazleton Senior High School in 1985, and graduated from Penn State University in 1990 with a B.S. in Meteorology in 1990. While at Penn State, he achieved first place in the junior forecasting contest, first place in the senior forecasting and finished in the top ten percent of the 1989-1990 National Collegiate Forecasting Contest. Later in 1990, Bernie began his career at AccuWeather as a severe weather monitor. He was promoted to morning lead weather forecaster in December 1991, then was transferred to AccuWeatherâ„¢'s International Department in September 1994. Bernie's role in AccuWeatherâ„¢'s radio and television broadcasts steadily increased through the 1990s. Based on his skills and experience, he was promoted to Afternoon Manager of Forecasting Operations in January 2000. He then took over responsibility of video broadcasting a few months later, performing a variety of broadcast duties ranging from appearing on national networks such as NBC, CBS and MSNBC to performing radio interviews to appearing on streaming video on breaking weather at Throughout his AccuWeather career, Bernie has established himself as an integral part of the company. He has received five AccuWeather yearly awards, been named forecaster of the month five times, and was recently promoted to the title of Expert Senior Meteorologist. When away from AccuWeather, Bernie relaxes by participating and watching sports. He is especially a fan of football and tennis.

Of course, the problem with forecasting two weeks in advance is that it's "almost like lining up dominoes on a table," said Bernie Rayno, expert senior meteorologist with AccuWeather. All you need is one thing to be "a little off, and everything changes."
