Current Weather Outlook

Written by

Re the Monsoon:  Break - Surge - Break: Re 6 to 14 Day Outlook: Don't Count on it.

NOAA is assigning a low probability to the 6 - 14 Day Forecast due to "FORECAST CONFIDENCE FOR THE 6-10 DAY PERIOD: BELOW AVERAGE, 2 OUT OF 5, DUE TO A PREDICTED LOW AMPLITUDE PATTERN AND CONFLICTING / WEAK SIGNALS AMONG THE SURFACE TOOLS." Another way of putting that is that it is hard to predict weather when there is none. But we believe the real problem is the inability of the models to deal with a confusing situation most likely related to the time of year and the rapid change in conditions along the Equator. The Southwest Monsoon has been going through rapid changes. Earlier this past week, we had a Break (reduction in activity) and we may now be in the final days of a Surge and the forecast is for another probably short Break. it is a bit unusual to have these rapid swings. It may be that the Monsoon this summer requires favorable conditions to overcome certain negative factors.
