I am Roy Ponder, POW Ponder on Weather. I mainly focus on North Texas since I live in McKinney, but will forecast other areas during major events. I’m a family man that’s in the insurance business to provide for my family with a deep passion for the weather. I created the motto “Protecting you before and after the storm”. I’m a numbers guy with a photographic memory. My style of forecasting is that we have 120 yrs worth of weather records so I match up analogs and weather patterns to past events. I always trust the pattern and analogs with my approach to forecasting. The models are only the guide. I typically do a live week ahead forecast and at times will give you my thoughts on the longer range so you have an idea to what to expect with the season ahead and of course fine tune it along the way. Trust me, I follow the weather a lot, so I created this page for YOU so you can have a go to source. The page has created an outlet for me to fulfill my hobby and help me craft my skills to get better. Feel free to ask any questions or something you’re not sure of. I appreciate you following and I’ll continue to keep you ahead of the storm.
There is no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. – John Ruskin
