  1. Even though he’s full of it these days, Joe Bastardi did have a good tagline at the end of his videos when he worked for Accuweather. ”Enjoy the weather, it’s the only weather you‘ve got.”
  2. Fact: pets and children do not give-a-shit about daylight savings or standard time.
  3. Euro and GFS look amazingly similar on this one at the moment…
  4. I've had to turn on the heat for about 3 hours since Oct 1. Insanity. Always makes you worry that things may balance out in the next few months, just like the drought...
  5. Agreed. It does seem to be a volatile model. It fluctuates from week to week, and I also noticed the changes recently. There must be some sort of value to the model, but it may take some nuance to get the best forecasting value out of it. I know I haven't figured it out yet...
  6. The Panic Room thread usually gets created on Dec 1. LMAO…
  7. This was interesting... https://www.severe-weather.eu/long-range-2/winter-season-2022-2023-forecast-october-update-united-states-canada-europe-fa/
  8. So who is good IYO? It was a question geared towards anyone who wanted to answer... and we know the answer is not "Joe Bastardi" lol...
  9. Just him? I see others discussed but sometimes it’s by initials or partial names. Just curious…
  10. Sooooo… how about them cold temps this morning?
  11. Who are the recommended forecasters to follow outside of this forum for long range/winter forecasts?
  12. The 0z 840 HR GEFS looks a lot better than the CFS weeklies in the mid-to-late November time frame. The CFS looked a lot better last week. (Going by what's available on Tropical Tidbits). Interesting to see the differences between the two...
  13. Neat! I found this to be notable as well: "The upgrades in the data assimilation system are accomplished by improving the use of existing observations, adding newly available observations, enhancing Near Sea Surface temperature (NSST) analysis, and bug fixes." One of the data assimilation items on there was increased input of high latitude wind data from satellites. Wonder if that might help with the winter storm forecasts with those waves that roll out of northwest Canada that we are always waiting to be "sampled"...
  14. Didn't realize the title of this thread changed to "COVID OBS/DISC"... Guess I'm going to AmericanMedicine.com for the weather discussions there.
  15. Noticed on Tropical Tidbits an alert about ECMWF super computer upgrades. Found this interesting article: https://www.ecmwf.int/en/about/media-centre/news/2022/taking-ecmwfs-new-high-performance-computing-facility-operation Looks like software/model upgrades to follow the hardware upgrades being done now.
  16. You should! It's quite easy to self-publish these days - especially if you're not looking to make a living at it.
  17. With that storm coming up the coast, Sunday evening definitely looks like an oxford shirt with slacks kind of day. Might even go to bed early so I can get my eight hours of sleep. . . . . . (Definitely wanted to work slacks into the conversation and stay on topic, though I'm not sure what the topic is at this point.)
  18. I will assume all the costs involved with that person being an employee of Beasley. So payroll taxes, benefits, etc. Anything the company would have paid as their share of hiring an employee full time. They are being d#$cks about it, and saying we are not footing 1 cent of the bill for this person to remain on the payroll. A literal "you want him, you pay for him!"
  19. Obviously, we're only hearing the T&R side of things, but to be honest, this sounds like a shot across the bow on whenever their next contract negotiation comes up. Even though they are the highest billing show based on revenue in the cluster, they decided to cut a staffer from their morning show and not the other morning shows. Either that or they are insanely stupid - in the modern era of podcasting T&R could easily take their show off the radio and still make money, and Beasley would probably not have anything good to replace the revenue that would leave with them. So glad I didn't go into that industry as a career. Was a Comm major in college and was working part-time in radio in Providence as well and decided to get out of it right when they first started to consolidate in the late 90's. The entire industry is full of financed debt from all the big consolidations of the last 25 years, and its sucking the personality out of the industry/medium. JMTC...
  20. Yeah Jones definitely has the job when he comes back. Two good wins in a row for the Pats, but good defense, good special teams, and conservative offense are more than enough to beat the Lions and the Browns. Jones would have most likely beat them as well. Zappe has played well but they were lucky to get two terrible teams to run “rookie” level offense with and come out on top.
