USA on August 02 2019 04:49 PM (UTC). More than 150 great white sharks have been spotted since June off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, a popular East Coast vacation spot, according to scientists. This week alone, more than 20 great white sharks were spotted off the Cape, prompting three days of beach closures in a row beginning Tuesday. The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy's sharability app indicates that 161 sharks have been spotted off the coast of Massachusetts since June 1. "We've seen more white sharks this past July, the last month than we did last year at this time," said Gregory Skomal, a marine biologist with the Massachusetts Department of Fish and Game. High water temperatures and a high population of seals, which sharks feed on, off the coast of Cape Cod are attracting them, Skomal said. The population of great whites is also rebounding after humans exploited the species for a long period. But the increase in shark sightings doesn't necessarily indicate a higher number of sharks off the Cape. "We have to realize that it's been a really hot summer, and more and more people are going to the beach, more and more people are carrying cellphones, and they have drones and they have all kinds of electronic toys that allow them to see the sharks,... ... ...

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.
