Lead Contributor, Expert Reviewer, and Resident Weather Aficionado.

Hi, thanks for stopping by. I’m the lead contributor here at Weather Station Advisor. I’ve had a lifelong interest in the weather spanning more than 30 years, culminating with the pursuit of a Meteorology degree from Millersville University in Pennsylvania. My interests lie in severe weather and climate change.

I also have a degree in Journalism from Temple University and have spent nearly my entire journalism career covering consumer gadgets. You might have seen my work on Digital Trends, PC World, VentureBeat, or even the New York Times website. I’ve written quite a bit!

At Weather Station Advisor, I joined the team to provide you with the best reviews, recommendations, and advice to get the most out of your investment. As I’ve found out on my own, weather stations aren’t cheap—and it’s easy to make a costly mistake.

Take a look at my top recommendations in our home weather station buying guide.

Hi! I’m Jack Sillin, and I’ve been watching and writing about the weather for over a decade, first for my home state of Maine on my blog ForecasterJack and then for national and international audiences at Weather.us. In my writing, I’ve been especially focused on teaching those without a rigorous scientific background about the atmosphere, and I’m here to continue that effort.

I earned my Atmospheric Science degree from Cornell University in 2022, where I conducted research relating to medium-range forecast predictability. I find just about any type of severe weather interesting, from thunderstorms and tornadoes to blizzards and hurricanes. When not writing or otherwise thinking professionally about the weather, you can usually find me outside in the mountains.

About Us 1

Jeanne Yacoubou, MS


I've been an environmental writer covering climate, agriculture, and renewable energy for over 15 years. With a master's degree in chemistry, I'm passionate about non-toxic living, going to great lengths to keep the air and water as pure as possible for my family. 

In 2018, I launched Toxic Chemical Tracker, a site devoted to raising awareness about the petrochemicals in our food, water, air, and consumer products, as well as providing toxic-free alternatives for carbon-negative living. In a former life, I served for three years as a Peace Corps volunteer in Benin, West Africa, teaching high school science in French. I later homeschooled my three children (also in French) for 12 years. 

When I'm not reading the latest journal articles or scientific reports on air or water quality, I'm tending to my family's organic garden or creating a no-mow lawn with native plants.
