I say that I may have been a bit overzealous on the heat this week, it's going to be hot, but maybe not quite that hot.

I also think that KSAT is on the opposite end of the spectrum on this forecast. The odds of rain here are minimal, most of it will remain well to our south and east IF the remains of Arthur were to move this far north. The weakening of the ridge aloft will open the door for some scattered sea breeze convection, but most of the rain will again be south and east. High temperatures will without a doubt be higher than just 90.

Wow, Anthony, you sound like you should be on KSAT.... how much longer do you have to go? Does this require a masters' degree?
Also, other than degrees, what kind of certification do you have to get?

Thanks, I'm flattered
I haven't made my decision as to what route I'd like to go with meteorology.. but I'm not sure if I want to go down the broadcasting route (although I haven't ruled it out).

I also don't know if I want to go into forecasting or in a more research intensive route. Therefore, I really need to get a degree.

Other certification:
American Meteorological Society (AMS Home Page)
National Weather Association (National Weather Association)


On another note, I'm working on the 8-day right now.. it'll be up in a bit.

Anthony, do you see this year being like last year? I know you can only see so far into the future but last year we had some real early heat and then it went down after those few weeks?

I'm predicting BIG FLOOD this year... "ssssh"

This mornings models indicated the ridge weakening leading to a pattern similar to that of last year. I haven't checked the afternoon models yet, I've been fairly busy all day so I'll get back to you on that.

I normally don't like predicting flood events until they become very possible, but as you know how stagnant our weather patterns are.. if we get caught in a very rainy pattern, floods are certainly possible.
