    NAM GW This looks like something straight out of Bangladesh.

    Heavy heavy lawn thread 2019

    Beds are all mulched. Peonies have flowered and hydrangeas are starting to get a purple tinge to them, so it appears I haven't killed anything yet.

    Just like the freshets of old. I mean there are still scars from the late 1800s in NH. Stripped the mountains down the granite.

    Yeah, when the stratus comes in it usually fogs in hard at GYX because we're 400 ft, but once you get into the Royal River Valley it clears out. The real trick is figuring out when all the low elevation sites go dense fog vs just the hill tops.

    Heavy heavy lawn thread 2019

    I lucked out. Three neighbors have had to bring someone in and completely replace their lawns. And one of those even failed to come in nice. I think we were starting to lose it last year but I took a page out of Kevin's book and bombed it with fertilizer. Went away on a long weekend vacation and came back to a lawn that choked the mower a few times. Otherwise it's full on trench warfare at Chez Legro. Fighting yard by yard to hack the weeds out.

    I definitely have some double digit departure days.

    We are in Portland, barely. We live out near the Falmouth line because that's the only place we could find a plot to build on but it's a great neighborhood.

    Oxymoron? (Sorry Ryan)

    Actually that's just the chemicals causing the cloud drops to evaporate.

    At least the warm front is moving.

    Yeah there's some warm sector for you in NY trying to work in, gotta ditch those stable wave clouds first before it clears out.

    You can do a lot of damage in BTV when it comes to beer. You'll be a little closer to the front up there today, so may have to dodge showers, but what better excuse to duck into a brewery.

    We bang. I was super impressed by their selection, and the brewery is in a sick spot too. Probably time to make them a Weather Ready Ambassador, "work trip" and all.

    Still have to dig out the rest of the beds around a few plants, but this is what we're working with so far. Now to mulch and patch the lawn.

    I'll try and grab some when I get home from work. The greenhouse/nursery was a little overwhelming, but we ended up going with (from inside to outside off the front door) a golden cone juniper, bloomstruck hydrangea, and avalanche lily of the valley. On the side of the house we have an azalea bracketed by two spirea.

    Certain parameters may improve (like the satellite microphysics I mentioned) but like you say the grid resolution won't. This upgrade will make it easier to change resolution down the road though, which is one of the major reasons for the upgrade.
  19. OceanStWx

    Spring 2019 New England Banter and Disco

    Well the resolution didn't change this time around. But overall that's why they run these things in parallel, so they can test that they aren't harming any previous good a model did. This is a "do no harm" upgrade, so any degradation is basically noise. There will be plenty of hot takes about how bad the model is when it has its first big bust, but those will be mostly overblown beyond the normal the GFS just isn't as good a global model as the Euro and Ukie.
  20. OceanStWx

    Spring 2019 New England Banter and Disco

    Overall it's a marginal improvement over the GFS, and we shouldn't expect to see drastic changes from the old core.

    Generally speaking, once websites get their kinks worked out, the "GFS" will be the FV3 core. Any "para" version will be the old core.
  22. OceanStWx

    Best way to check is via the simulated satellite. FV3 is better resolution (different parameterization) than the old GFS. So Tidbits was FV3.

    Correct.

    2019 Golf Thread

    I mean they all play the same course right? I don't particularly care if the winner is +10 or -10, but the guy who plays the best golf over 72 holes will win it. And you know what, I bitch and moan when my course doesn't mow or rake the bunkers well enough, or sticks the pin on a ridge. I enjoy seeing pros complain too. Maybe the should try making birdie from a soggy fairway and a green where the grass died in March from ice cover.

    In fairness the GFS didn't crap itself, but the way website receive the GFS did. Probably just a naming convection issue. I have to back Louis up on this one.
