    Okay this is funny, so I am reading the NOAA weather blog, not sure why, they have been so off this year, at least for Chicago it incredible. Anyways i digress, If you read this blog someplace in the middle they have tossed out there million dollar tools and they now are bird watchers:p At least they know they need help, thats the first steep to correcting the problem ;)


    AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
    NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CHICAGO/ROMEOVILLE IL
    1025 PM CST MON JAN 22 2007

    DISCUSSION FOR AFTERNOON ZONES/GRIDS...
    315 PM CST

    ADVECT INTO THE REGION ON FRIDAY AND HELP BRING THE HIGH
    TEMPERATURES ABOVE FREEZING...FOR PLACES AWAY FROM THE LAKE...FOR
    THE FIRST TIME SINCE THE MIDDLE OF THE MONTH. THIS WARM SPELL WILL
    ONLY LAST FOR A DAY THOUGH AS THE COLD FRONT DROPS THROUGH EARLY
    SATURDAY AND THE BOTTOM STARTS TO DROP OUT. H85 TEMPS WILL DROP TO
    ABOUT -20C ON MONDAY AND POSSIBLY LOWER ON TUESDAY...EVEN THOUGH
    THIS IS OUTSIDE THE FORECAST PERIOD IT LOOKS LIKE THIS WILL BE THE
    TREND FROM THE WEEKEND THROUGH NEXT WEEK. THE RADAR TODAY HAS
    PICKED UP ON FLOCKS OF CANADIAN GEESE FINALLY HEADING SOUTH FOR THE
    WINTER...SO CONFIDENCE IN THE LONG TERM FORECAST GOING COLDER IS
    INCREASED A LITTLE BY THIS
    :drinkup: . AS THIS COLD FRONT AND INVERTED TROF COME THROUGH WITH THIS SYSTEM...THERE WILL BE A CHANCE FOR SOME FLURRIES AND MAYBE A SNOW SHOWER BUT DID NOT INCREASE POPS AT ALL DUE TO FACT THAT THE TIMING WITH THE FRONT COMING THROUGH HAS NOT VERY CONSISTENT SO FAR AND SOME OF THE MODELS ARE STARTING TO TREND EARLIER THAN PREVIOUSLY ANTICIPATED.

    That shows real confidence in the equipment now doesn't it. And the geese don't all go south for the winter.So don't put all your geese eggs in one basket.:D

    I can get a more reliable forecast by flipping a coin, I don't think the weather men have been accurate all winter...and now we're basing forecasts on animals...:eek: ...! They're saying around 1" here in NJ tomorrow night, but of course, it'll go away as soon as tomorrow comes...:dizzy: ...:mad: ...go figure! Of course, I wouldn't be at all surprised if we end up with 2'...accurate forecasts...right!:rolleyes:
