New, Improved and Under Construction

Hello all,

So the time has come for Austin’s Atmosphere to expand and re-design its website again. This is the fourth incarnation of Austin’s Atmosphere since it was founded back in November 2011. Over the past year I have taken on several new clients in the website design and computer programming industries and am looking to expand the business into my original passion, weather consulting.

The downside of a complete redesign is that it can take a while. That being said, I plan on posting regular updates as I complete the various aspects of the site. The first order of business on this new site will be getting the live weather maps and images up and running. Weather maps were the original purpose of Austin’s Atmosphere and thus I intend to make sure that they are the first item to return to this new, redesigned site.

Also in the works is a plan to implement a membership service for Austin’s Atmosphere. Members will be able to request personalized weather forecasts, get access to premium weather maps, subscribe to the weekly Atmosphere Analysis newsletter, plus more!

So stay tuned to this blog for further updates, and feel free to leave a comment on any suggestions for how I could improve the Austin’s Atmosphere experience.

    To Whom it may Concern,

    My name is Michael Leiba, and I hold a B.S. degree in Meteorology from the Florida State University. I am currently employed by the State of Florida, Department of Health, Bureau of Radiation Control as an Environmental Scientist. After viewing your website,, I am very interested about the possibility of providing my meteorological services to your company from my home in the South Florida area. I would also like to provide to you some more information about myself.

    At this time, my short term goals are to work in the field of Meteorology on a part time basis while I work full time as an Environmental Scientist. One of my main areas of interest in Meteorology resulted from 2002 to 2006 when I volunteered at WPBF News Channel 25’s Weather Center as a Meteorologist, Weather Producer. While at WPBF, I mainly provided a 5 day weather forecast for the West Palm Beach viewing area, and it was during that time that I was able to utilize the numerical and statistical weather prediction models by the National Weather Service to “fine tune” the weather information to more of a point forecast for the listening area by taking into account various factors such as the geographical situation (specific location of land area to the Atlantic Ocean), 1000 – 500 mb thickness lines, wind speed and wind direction. Another area of my responsibility was to provide a weather forecast through the television station’s web site as well as providing a daily forecast for selected cities throughout the country. It was through this latter task, that I was able to gain additional experience in weather forecasting by the determination of certain factors such as how the weather differs from the windward to the leeward side of a mountain range, orographical lifting, and forecasting for areas prone to lake effect snowfall (how it is greatly dependent on wind direction). Some of my other areas of interests include Climatology, Radar Meteorology, and Tropical Meteorology.

    In summary, I feel that my passion for the field of Meteorology can prove to be a valuable asset to your company. I can be available on Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays. I also can be available Tuesdays through Fridays after 6:00 PM (USA)EDT.

    Please feel free to contact me for my resume or if you have any further questions. Thank you in advance for your kind attention to this matter.
