I thought it would be fun to have some forecasts on here throughout the season. This should be something different than most forecasts done elsewhere. I say “most” because the idea came from a segment of a show some of the Penn State Department of Meteorology staff does. First off, there will not be any waffle words like “chance” or “possibility” and such. So these forecasts are going to have some certainty to them. In doing so, the forecasts will tend to be more of general statements rather than an attempt at pinpoint accuracy. Also, I’m going to keep track of how the forecasts are going. The goal is 90% accuracy, but we’ll see what happens. There will be 2 forecasts: one for somewhere in New York State and one for somewhere else in the world. I’ll try to have forecasts at least every other week during the winter season, with the first forecast to be for the Thanksgiving weekend, provided there are events to forecast.
Have a great weekend everyone.
