Awesome Weather Site

Post  marc-in-pa on 4/8/2012, 10:22 am

I came across this interesting weather site that integrates Google maps and overlays a number of weather conditions.

http://weatherspark.com/#!dashboard;q=Wexford,+Pennsylvania,+United+States

I like seeing the clouds, and precipitation probability options in addition to temperature.

That site is incredible. It even includes Canada, without the radar.
I have been searching for something like this, it does seem it might take awhile to really learn it well.
I gather that the lowest lines on the chart are the record lows??

Yes... I believe those are the record lows.

Depending on how much recorded data there is, you could go back in time and see what the weather was like the day in the city you were born.

Lots of things to play with there. It is great to see a visual of when weather conditions are expected to hit.

Yep, I've used WeatherSpark for a couple years now (my brother introduced it for me). I shared it with a local TV meteorologist and HE loved this site too.

What you can do is follow the graph along and see where the 25 percentile lows are for late april and essentially have risk of frost.
So even though my final frost here is the first of May, if you go back a few weeks you can see that less than 10 percent of the time is there a frost after the 20th of April.
So save 10% of your plants indoors.... Wink
