Do It Yourself Weather Forecasts

Are you going to Philly for the ASSA convention or to some other January vacation hot spot? You can check out the latest forecasts for precipitation, precipitation type, and the ever-cool 925/850 Mixing Ratio based on several different forecast models. Click here.

Being a former macroeconomic conditions forecaster, I like to read the forecast discussions on some of the regional National Weather Service stations. The NWS forecasters are often just as uncertain about their forecasts as I was of mine - and that's comforting. But they weren't forecasting things for 2 years down the road either!
