General Weather Discussion / May (Re: NWS - CPC - forecasts - Spring 2020)
« Last post by elagache on May 01, 2020, 11:26:41 pm »
Dear WeatherCat climate watchers,

The first of May has arrived and here are the National Weather Service - Climate Prediction Center forecasts.  Here is the one month forecasts of departures from normal temperatures for May:



This outlook is definitely harsh on the Southwestern parts of the United States.

Here is the equivalent 3 months predictions of temperatures departures from normal for May through July:



This 3 month forecast has the entire country either above normal or with an equal chance of any of the 3 outcomes.

Here are the precipitation predictions of departures from normal for May:



Once more there is considerable uncertainty for the majority of the country.

Here is the equivalent graph for May to July:



This is similar to last month's forecast and will once more make the flooding situation worse.

Here are drought forecasts.  Here is the drought outlook for May:



This forecast keeps the west the same or worse while droughts along the gulf improve.

Here is the equivalent 3 month outlook:



It is basically the same forecast extended further into the year.

Alas, it is clear that the wildfire season is going to start early.  Here are the predictions from the National Interagency Fire Center which is part of the National Interagency Coordination Center.  These only come monthly.  Here is the May outlook:
 



This shows the first elevated wildfire risk in Arizona.  Here is the June forecast



In addition to Arizona and its border regions, elevated risk begins in portions of Northern Californa.  Oddly, fire risks decrease along southern California coast.  Here is the July forecast:



For July, a large part of the Pacific Northwest faces an elevated fire risk as well as the states of the 4-corners region.

As usual, Like it or not, such are the forecasts we are facing . . . .

Dear Grand and WeatherCat iPad users,

Automatically adjusts when wind speed and wind gust exceeds the previous maximum value.
Updated for iOS 13 and adds icons for newer devices.
Supports use on iPads back to 2011 (iPad 2 with 30-pin dock connector) so that you can dust off your retired iPad and use it as your 24/7 Personal Weather Station Monitor.

Thanks Grand! ThU5:-)

Mark Crossley: This is not the first time you have solved an issue for us on this Forum. For someone who does not use WeatherCat, you are a delightful resource. Thanks for helping out and thank your for your brilliant SteelSeries Gauges option for WeatherCatters.

WeatherCat General Discussion / Re: Hourly movie looked strange
« Last post by xairbusdriver on April 29, 2020, 05:34:40 pm »
Looking fine now. Still not sure why it happened. I vaguely remember trying to update WC several weeks ago and it didn't seem to "take". That may have removed the app from the Full Access list... or one of those UFO's are still orbiting. cmu:-)

WeatherCat General Discussion / Hourly movie looked strange
« Last post by xairbusdriver on April 29, 2020, 03:11:08 am »
I noticed that the Hourly Movies showed a beautiful, sunny day! However, it had sprinkled off and on and was decidedly not sunny. That's when I noticed the time stamp: 16 Apr 2020... Nothing gets by me! cmu:-) [blush]

Checking Console I found that the DailyMovieController was reporting that it "couldn't copy" the "WeatherCat1hrMovie" to CustomWeb folder. At least since the 16th... Fortunately, that controller was renaming the hourly movie to the appropriately named movie with the correct time .mp4.

Still not sure why this started back on the 16th. At first i thought it might have been the Mojave macOS 10.14 Supplemental Update, but I think that was a little over 3 weeks ago. At least the Mac has been running for over 23 days since its last boot. [rolleyes2]
  • I did find that WC was not listed in the Full Disk Access list in the Security & Privacy System Prefs, so I added it.
  • I also noticed that I had not updated WC to 3.0.5, did that also.
I have WC set to stop recording vids after dark, so I'll have to wait until tomorrow to see if these changes made any difference. [computer]

WeatherCat Feature Requests / Statistics tool improvement suggestion
« Last post by Jvince on April 28, 2020, 08:00:03 pm »
Dear all

In the statistics tool, in the record tab, could you please add the longest drought period ?
From date 1 to date 2 = x days

Also in the same statistics tool, i'd like to see a new tab with all data split per season (Dec-Feb, Mar-May, June-Aug, Sept-Nov by default but maybe customizable somewhere to change the grouping).

Thank you for your support, I really enjoy WeatherCat !
