Graham Smith

Graham Smith, one of wxedge.com's international contributors, is based in the Kingdom of Fife, Scotland. Although now resident in the United Kingdom, Graham grew up in the tropics of Australia, where his intense interest in all things weather was born. Spectacular electrified storms, which batter Northern Australia in the "wet season", cemented Graham's interest in extreme weather in his teenage years. Now in his mid thirties and moving to the UK in 2004, Graham's interest in weather was rekindled by the varied and meteorologically challenging climate of an island nation, sandwiched between the expansive landmass of Europe, and the Atlantic ocean. In 2009, Graham's interest in weather inspired him to commence work on the UK's only purpose-built mobile weather lab, known as WeatherEvents.net. The mobile weather lab was completed in the middle of 2009, and Graham has since worked alongside organizations such as the Royal Meteorological Society, as well as appearing on BBC radio programs and Scottish television, in connection with his pursuit of severe weather. Graham is looking forward to contributing articles from "across the pond" and helping to keep wxedge.com readers updated on weather news from the British Isles.
