[quote:Master of Nothing:MV8zNzM3MzMyXzc0NDE2MTE1X0Y2QTk3NkIy] https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/local/michigan/2019/08/01/weather-was-july-2019-9th-warmest-less-rainy-than-normal/1886517001/ [b]The weather that was: July 2019 9th warmest, less rainy than normal[/b] "Overall, July was three degrees hotter than average in Detroit, 76.8 degrees compared to 73.6. Not only was the average high last month two degrees hotter than the historical high, 86.7 compared with 83.4, but the average low was about three degrees hotter, 66.8 compared with 63.9. The month was also drier than normal, with only one day, July 19, having more than a quarter-inch of rain. It rained almost 1.75 inches that day, but the month as a whole saw only 2.63 inches of rain; 3.37 inches are typical for Detroit in July. Alex Manion, a National Weather Service meteorologist, said there was a "very inactive pattern" in the jet stream in the area. While there were a number of thunderstorms, they were "very isolated in nature."" [/quote]
In 2017 we saw the most costly damage from weather the United States has ever seen. In the first weeks of 2018 we have seen blizzards and snow from Florida to Maine, 40 degree temperature swings and deadly flooding in California. The crazy, unpredictable weather is being felt and observed by Glp'ers from all over the world.
The goal of this thread is simply to observe, compare and contrast forecasts - to what really ends up happening. Meteorologists are wrong - ALOT. It would seem the weather has been getting harder to predict, and the storms are becoming intense. Here maybe we can piece together the puzzling weather of late. I've been wanting to create this thread for a while, because it baffles me how inaccurate forecasts have been in the past, and even more so as of recently! Here we can have a template of what was predicted, what really happened and maybe it'll help shed light on what we can expect in the future!
Feel free to post anything weather related. From links, to videos to your daily weather forecast and/or observations. The more data the better. I will give daily forecasts for a few cities including my current location. This should be interesting and fun. I'll try my hardest to update here on the regular. But i sure could use some help from you fine GLP weathertards.
