GFS, GEFS & CFSv2 polar vortex forecast charts are available here. 

Welcome to Simon Lee’s website. I am a PhD student studying stratosphere-troposphere coupling in the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading, UK. I also hold a Master’s degree in Meteorology (MMet) from the same department.

On this website you can find:

  • Forecasts of the Arctic stratospheric polar vortex
  • Weather and climate science¬†blog
  • Some useful web links to monitor the stratosphere
  • A list of my peer-reviewed publications

My PhD project looks at the predictability and downward coupling of anomalies in the stratospheric circulation and how these influence the weather patterns we experience at the surface. I discuss this more in these blog posts:
