How Weather
Forecasts are
Many people often ask me about the weather and wonder why our
forecasts can be right one day and maybe not so accurate another
(We’re not off that much - lol). This can all be attributed to com-
puter models and a constantly changing atmosphere.

In meteorology, one of the important implications is that small

differences in the initial conditions of the atmosphere can lead to
big differences in the weather that results only a few days later.

Sometime these differences can be too small to detect. This is

why scientists say that day-to-day forecasts of the weather for
more than about two weeks ahead will never be possible. Today, five days is about the limit
of useful day-to-day forecasts. And, forecasts for five days ahead are, at best, little better
than using "normal" climatic values.

All weather forecasts begin with observations of what the weather is doing all over the
world. These observations are then fed into super computers that use mathematical models of
the atmosphere to make predictions In the United States. These computers are operated by
the National Weather Service. The resulting forecasts are used by all weather forecasters,

Busch: media thrashes drivers
Kurt Busch’s car-to-crew communications in recent weeks have included some
sharp criticism of his team. In saying that those tirades have come to an end, he
included some criticism of the NASCAR media corps.

“I always laugh and listen to you [media] guys contradict yourselves because
you say that you want us to be more colorful, but all that you want to do to a
driver is just thrash them when they show personality,” he said. “That’s what I’m

Safe and fun in Volvo’s all-new S60

Volvo cars have always been
synonymous with safe cars.
But as other manufacturers
started building cars just as

more emphasis on the styling
