Weather Pack For September 6, 2012
2012-09-06 08:00:38

Today on Weather Pack we are going to examine the surface wind around a mature low pressure system, which means that the low pressure has an occluded front associated with it. Yellow Star: The forecasted surface winds would be out of the Northwest as the flow behind the low is counter-clockwise. Green Star: Anyone that is forecasting for the green star would be looking at the winds coming from the South-Southeast just right ahead of the warm front of the low pressure system. Red...

Many forecasters new and old run across certain things that just don’t get picked up in the weather models that we use to prepare our weather forecast. This is why I have created weather guides for anyone that is getting ready to or just wants to find out more about the weather in their area. (Here are a few forecaster guide tips to helping prepare a better weather forecast) Elevation: North: Look for a gradual rise. South: Look for no major elevation changes. West: There is a...

2012-09-03 16:44:02

When it comes to wind, more and more people are turning to it as alternative option for electricity. One has to wonder what kind of impacts would be created by the different cycles of ENSO. The above graph has been done for Boston MA. The month of choice was to run it for March of all three cycles. Normal Cycle: (When we are in between EL-Nino and La-Nina) winds averaged around 0-5mph 9% of the month of March. While 6-10mph average winds occurred more often with 35%. And then winds in the...
