My name is Josiah Mault, I received a B.S. in Atmospheric Sciences (with focus in Meteorology) from the University of Washington in June 2006 and am the Assistant State Climatologist for the Office of the Washington State Climatologist

I have enjoyed observing and forecasting the weather since I became fascinated by it when watching TV weather forecasts when I was 12. Since then, I had the goal of making a career out of weather and computers (my second fascination) and plan to continue my education with an advanced degree in atmospheric sciences and/or a computer science degree.


I created this page in Spring 2000, for the use of Sammamish residents, visitors, and curious web surfers. Its purpose has always been to provide weather data, consisting of current, past, and future weather conditions for the city of Sammamish, WA.
