I didn’t plan on highlighting fellow weather bloggers again so soon, especially since I have a fascinating post ready about how a dead pig can be used as a way to make a long-range forecast, but my fine-weathered friends have left me no choice.
Current Example of a Rain Shadow
Interesting local weather phenomena is one of the chapters in Weather Whys, and Scott Sistek of Partly to Mostly Bloggin’ gives a real-life example of a rain shadow in western Washington today (Marysville to Sequim Rain Shadow: Yoink).
Philadelphia Long-Range Forecast
I’ve done many a post on long-range forecasts from a national perspective, and Tom Thunstrom from PhillyWeather.net is highlighting a long-range forecast for Philadelphia from a local meteorologist (2009-2010 Winter Philadelphia Forecasts). The forecast is for a colder-than-normal January and February, with greater-than-normal winter snowfall.
What’s In a Name?
After a storm that included the remnants of Ida ravaged the Eastern Seaboard, Jesse Ferrell from WeatherMatrix asks if all storms should be named (Should ALL Storms Be Named?). I didn’t take the poll, but I’d vote “No.”
Winter Weather Awareness
Erik from MemphisWeather.Net has a post, Winter Weather Awareness Week 2009–Part 1, that is appropriate for most regions of the country now that we’re quickly heading toward Thanksgiving.
