Forecastwatch.com is a fellow "forecast grader" that evaluates national forecasting services. It's far more sophisticated than TMF and the grading system is much more exact than the simple letter grades we assign. It's clearly geared for a different audience than ours, but it's an interesting site and one that's probably worthy of your review nonetheless.
Another interesting site, thought it's not a forecast "evaluator," is weatherspark.com. It provides one heck of an amount of information in an interesting graphic format. What's particularly interesting about it is that you can choose weather information from a variety of models, including NOAA, the Norwegian Meteorological Institute (seriously, this is not a Minnesota joke) and World Weather Online, (See the upper right portion of the page to select a different weather model). Perhaps some of you have an idea which underlying models form the consensus for each of the weather sources.
|One model from WeatherSpark reflects a rain/snow/sleet mix for next week.|
Finally, if the long wait for the snow to melt is leaving you in need of a little comic relief, we offer up this television weather meteorologist.
Enjoy the dribbling sounds of spring.
