Dear WeatherCat shutterbugs,

It has been over a month since someone has contributed a photo to this thread, but alas my main plan was sabotaged - by of course the weather!  I had hoped to catch the Moon in another angle but we were fogged in during the window of opportunity.  However, we are seeing extremes of hot and cold and today a cold front came through.  It brought clouds like this which I captured behind our anemometer:



Don't be bashful!  All it takes a camera, tablet, or smart phone!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

It's so when you bend down to look underneath the front, it appears to right way up!  ThU32:-)

Hi Gang
 I don't have that special weather for the programmed in my WC
But this has been the warmest May on record here in central Ohio per channel 6 weather team [sweat2]


cheers

Nice suggestion, Edouard.

Here is mine. In our case, here in the mountains of Northern Utah, the CPS one-month forecast for May called for a 70-80% chance of above normal temperatures. They called it correctly. The CPS also said there was a 40-50% chance of above average precipitation. Alas, this prediction was a bust.

Love the photos and the update.

Dear WeatherCat fans of a certain rascally billy-goat station wagon, . . . . . 

Greg and the gang at Orinda Classic Car has been working bring my trusty wagon back to life.  First they installed some nice and shiny steering and suspension upgrades.  These include some tubular front controller arms:



A stronger front anti-sway bar:



The silly folks at UMI Performance, put their product sticker - upside down!  I'll have to ask them for another sticker.

There is a variable ratio steering box as well, but I don't have pictures of it since it looks just like the old one!

On the rear Biquette is getting stronger boxed controller arms:



She also has gotten a rear anti-sway bar:



All this should improve handling without making ride rougher.  Hopefully it will help cope with the many potholes to be found these days in California.  This afternoon, I brought in another load of parts and Greg had ready gotten the engine in:



As usual, he had a horrible time squeezing the engines and the long-tube headers in.  Here is a view of the passenger side:



There is still plenty of work to do, but definitely things are coming along!

Thanks for your support!  :)

Dear WeatherCat climate watchers,

For sometime now I have been posting the Climate Prediction Center forecasts like this one for the month that is almost over:

http://athena.trixology.com/index.php?topic=2737.msg26626#msg26626

I have always been suspicious about the accuracy of these forecasts but didn't have an easy way to test them.  In WeatherCat 3, Stu added some tags that provides a nice summary of the climate.  Grand used them for a report in WeatherCatRCP.  Here is the text:

Code: [Select]
R3 - L$ at D$
Build: BD$
STTHISMONTHOV$

STLASTMONTHOV$

This is a neat way to get a quick read on the climate of this past month.   Here is what this report looks like for Canebas weather station:



As you can see, it has been slightly cooler than normal in the San Francisco Bay Area, not much warmer as the Climate Prediction Center expected.

Since it is relatively easy to collect these tags, I thought we might share with one another these reports to compare what the climate has been at our respective locations compared with what was predicted by the CPC.  It may or may not reassure us about our weather and climate intuitions. . . . . 

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

P.S. Of course those of us running WeatherCatRCP might use that report just to give Grand a plug! . . . .  [tup]
