About Us


Eastern PA Weather Authority, LLC

Eastern PA Weather Authority, LLC began officially as a business registered in the state of Pennsylvania on June 1st, 2012. The name was changed to EPAWA Weather Consulting, LLC on October 26th, 2018 to better represent our business. We are a private forecast business that offers a plethora of paid client services, but we also have a large public selection of free forecast products. Originally started as a Facebook forecasting page based in the Lehigh Valley, through many successful calls on major events, including Hurricane Sandy in 2012, the Facebook page rapidly expanded with loyal followers that trust our forecasts on a daily basis. Due to the rapid expansion in following, we were forced to expand our coverage area to all of Central and Eastern Pennsylvania, Northern Maryland, and the entire states of New Jersey and Delaware. We now reach a much larger audience in the millions, and the website launched in 2012 to coincide with the start of the official business. We have EVERYTHING weather-wise you could need for this region, including daily forecasts, long range forecasts, text alert services, a premium forum, private client services and much more!

Meteorologists and Core Staff


Bobby Martrich, EPAWA Weather Consulting, LLC Proprietor and Meteorologist

Bobby began his passion for weather as a toddler, fascinated with thunderstorms and snowstorms. His passion followed him throughout his childhood, and led him to the inevitability of a career in meteorology. Immediately following high school he enlisted in the US Army, where he completed 6 years of honorable service, 4 years active duty, and 2 years in the PA National Guard. During this time, he gained hands-on experience in real-world weather forecasting operations, working in the flight control towers at several major US Army Airfields. His primary functions in Aviation Operations were to conduct pilot pre-flight briefings, and relay critical aviation weather information along the flight routes. His passion still lying with the weather, he enrolled at Penn State University’s College of Earth and Mineral Sciences to study meteorology formally immediately following his discharge from the military. After forecasting privately for several years, he decided to take advantage of the dawn of the social media era and began making public forecasts on the EPAWA Facebook page. On June 1st, 2012 he started the private forecast business and this website, alongside a team of forecasters. Bobby resides in North Whitehall, PA with his wife Monica and four boys.


Dominick Carmella, Private Services Meteorologist

Dominick was born and raised in the small town of Oconto, Nebraska. The frequency of severe weather in the summer followed by blizzards and ice storms in the winter piqued his interest in the weather and made him keenly aware of changing conditions in the atmosphere. He would often call for changes in precipitation type by noticing changes in wind direction. With the onset of the internet, Dominick was able to expand his knowledge and started providing forecasts for family and friends who soon learned to trust his calls over those of the local TV weathermen. He attended Penn State University, and obtained a BS in meteorology in 1991, and continues to reside in the State College area. After several years working in the private forecast sector, Dominick joined EPAWA in 2012 as a lead forecaster and private forecast meteorologist for the business side of EPAWA.

My Pocket Meteorologist text alerts will not only provide you with advanced notice of incoming storm threats, but will also provide real-time alerts for thunderstorms approaching the specific area that you live and/or work. Real-time alerts will take the guessing game of what to expect for what’s headed your way, sent by an ACTUAL METEOROLOGIST, not a computer or an app. This includes start/end times and duration of that specific storm, lightning threats, total rain, wind and gusts, hail (size) and tornadoes (if applicable). Things that neither an app nor a radar can tell you. We’re here to do the work, so that you don’t have to… and you can always stay ahead of the storms with safety and peace of mind.
