L over Hamilton Ray is right
Posted by The spokes Folks on 8/11/2012, 3:30 am, in reply to "Re: Wx this week end"
Low curling over hamilton Ontario at 4 AM with cold front ne/sw passed KDSV has winds confused even at this late (close to Sat) date. FLT PLAN shows winds now SE!!! as does ASOS!!! Resplendent garbage applies as the sky is clear at DSV right now, and wx moving nw. Front in ALB this time tomorrow. does this mean good Wx Sunday? |
: Will not eschew the counselor's graciousness
: in spite of the fact that

: death, and I just intercepted Jim's request.

: still pull up the all-important 500mb
: level-of-nondivergence progs, key to any
: meaningful attempt at forecasting. They
: reveal a rather unusual low, which is weak
: at that level (only one closed isobar), but
: strong below that. It's moving very slowly

: are in lockstep agreement for next 60 hours
