Re: Trouble Brewing in the N.E.
- David Ryan,
I'm not too obsessive about the weather(just the seasons,and I'm
in the wrong one right now!) but always intrigued by BIG
climatological happenings!My favorite one is a blizzard and the
bigger they are the better.....a childhood addiction of sorts that
somehow no longer fits too well with the needs of my favorite hobby.
The maps sure appear to show something potentially very
interesting coming up your way!Wish I could be there to see the fury.
And speaking of furies,you wouldn't happen to know of a site that has
down-loadable,archived weather maps?In particular,the period from
October 26,1998 to November 14,1998.Any help in this direction would
be much appreciated!
As we say up here,when the wind pipes up,"attache ta tuque"!

I agree on the 72 hour rule. They often the the 'what' right, but
the 'when' wrong.

meteorologist even faster than it will sent you to the looney bin.
In my experience, they've got a pretty good 72 hour line on the
winter weather pattern. If it's Monday and I see what looks to be a
solid swell setting up for Thursday, consider me booked.
OTOH: A hurricane anywhere in the Atlantic basin and they can't get a
solid forecast out 24 hours.
