A forensic meteorologist does not predict future weather patterns but rather testifies as to what was the weather like yesterday, or two years ago, on a certain date, in a certain town or city.
The use of such an expert might be of extreme importance to discredit witnesses version of the lighting conditions, temperature, rain or snow fall, or wind speed, or other weather factors which might play a pivotal role in the guilt or innocence’s of a defendant.
Stephen Wistar (State College P.A.) a senior forensic meteorologist as well as other forensic meteorologist with AccuWeather have testified throughout the country in both civil and criminal cases as to weather conditions at a certain time and place in the past.
