    The nattering grounds for world-wide general weather.

    Weather porn with The Levanter cloud formed over The Rock:


    In other news, Twitter is in meltdown over Trump's amendment to a official NOAA Hurricane forecast:


    This has been followed by NOAA coming out and undermining it's very-own Alabama Branch:


    Media is in hysterics over sensationalised (& misleading) WX headlines:

    Yeah but Trump would have been waving an awefully big stick at NOAA.

    Yeah but highlights 'you can't rule the weather' or science for that matter - the very heart of the issue.

    The biggest copout prediction term ever used.

    "Outlook remains 'cool and changeable'" = "We actually don't know what the weather holds that far in advance, so this is the most likely outcome"

    Updated my charts for 2019 peak season depth, interesting to note the last 3 seasons at Spencers as measured by Snowy Hydro are well above the 200cm mark and have helped to plateau the downward trend.

    Three mile dam when looking at the whole season was subject to many peaks and troughs which generally shows the perilous nature of lower elevated alpine regions.

    I have also analysed peak season dates per year for each elevation. A key observation here is the variability of when "peak depth" occurs for each elevation. Spencers is more August - October whereas Deep Creek & Three Mile Dam favour July - August, more so Three Mile Damn.

    Again, highlighting the perilous nature of low elevation resorts.

    Is this not a general weather thought? not specific to an area or season?

    General worldwide weather banter. Post #1 outlines it.
    Moderators need somewhere to put the junk & banter you guys churn out.

    Over 90% skill level results for the whole year is very impressive.
    Meanwhile GFS is approaching where EC was 5 years ago ...
