New forecast products, sort of!

If I didn't say anything, you may not have noticed anything was different, but let me assure you they are... sort of! I have been working with Python and learning how to create my own forecasts. I have an extremely crude page with just some forecast maps here. What...

Agriculture, Climate, and More!

I'm so excited to create this post. This post represents the beginning of a long process. I know it's not always the best to create news before you actually do it, but I will never create this post if I have to wait. Right now, this website is in the alpha stage of...

14 Days of Xmas

Forecasting Christmas day, 14 days in a row.

Winter Solstice and Christmas Forecast

Forecast 3

Wow, it's too bad I didn't have the same kind of luck with the latest model run that the earlier ones produced... they were very cold for Christmas morning! GFS Based on this run, it really only appears the interior of BC will have much of a threat of snow and much...

Second Christmas morning forecast

This is going by so quickly, we're already on the second forecast! Today's forecast will look slightly different. Yesterday I only posted maps from the GFS, and today I will post maps from the GFS AND the GEFS. The GEFS is an Ensemble map, which means it forecasts the...
