Rufus La Lone
Rufus graduated with honors in Biology from California State University Humboldt and completed a Master’s degree in Entomology at Oregon State University.
Beginning in 1979, Rufus has focused on developing environmentally sound management programs for insects on small fruits and stored grain products.
Since the early part of his scientific career, Rufus has been an advocate for the practical application of meteorology in the life sciences. For nearly 30 years, he has prepared weather forecasts for friends and colleagues. In 1994, Rufus initiated his virtual Weather Café®.
The Weather Cafe® provides uniquely informative long-range forecasts for specific patrons in the Pacific Northwest. It is a free service for patrons from British Columbia to northern California.
In the spring of 2005, the Council of the American Meteorological Society elected Rufus as a full member of the Society – a long time personal goal.
