As distinct from the 'dream climatic forecasts' and 'dream climatic averages' thread, this is intended to go a little deeper. You play the meteorological agency and issue a weekly forecast for your chosen location. These forecasts can be issued any day of the week, and updated if need be. Summaries of significant weather events are also allowed.

I will issue my forecasts for Sydney, Antarcanada (44S, 151E) each Sunday, with significant weather updates issued accordingly. A brief summary of the past weeks' climate data will be undertaken also.

Get a life? Well, maybe, but since this is intended to be a once a week thing, it shouldn't be detrimental to fostering and maintaining a healthy lifestyle .

Note: Sydney, Antarcanada is simply Sydney, Australia moved 10 degrees further south. The landform of Antarcanada is the same as contemporary Australia, except Tasmania is attached to the mainland and centred on 150 degrees east. This allows for colder winters on the east coast, whilst summers are more dynamic. A true four season climate is experienced along the eastern seaboard south of Brisbane.

Key stats for Sydney, AC:

Record High: 44C/111F
Record Low: -30C/-22F
Precipitation: 1000 mm/39.4 in

In essence, this climate is a little like the NE US with greater potential for extreme heat in summer. The Australian (Antarcanadian) landmass shifted 10 degrees further south would be wetter overall. The centre of the continent would be located at about 33S, still plenty of heat at that latitude in summer.

Well, this will be a rather basic forecast from the Ontonagon Meteorological Agency in my dream climate. An overview let's call it. Since I control both the OMA and the weather, our forecasts are always 100 percent accurate . Can we post more than one fantasy climate's forecast here? If so I have some whoppers.


Patricianopolis - Daily Overview

Today we had a minor snow and wind event after the ice storm on March 11 that produced 0.33 inches of ice accretion. There was no major damage (power lines are all located underground). 1 inch of fresh powder fell at the office today. This was mainly a wind event, with the peak wind gust today clocked at 52 mph. The average sustained wind today was 40 miles per hour, making this windstorm the third gale-force wind event so far this month.

Week at a Glance (all temps in degrees Fahrenheit)

March 13: Sunny and windy with some drifting snow. Low 5. High 24. Winds NW 25-35 mph. Winds gusting over 40 mph.

March 14: Mostly cloudy. Low 2. High 26. Winds NNE 10-15 mph.

March 15: Periods of moderate snow. Low 10. High 29. Winds E 10-15 mph. 2-3 inches of new snow expected.

March 16: Periods of moderate snow. Low 12. High 27. Winds NE 10-20 mph. 3-4 inches of new snow expected.

March 17: Partly cloudy in the morning, then sunny in the afternoon. Low 8. High 29. Winds N, shifting to W, at 10-15 mph.

March 18: Mostly sunny and windy. Low 8. High 50. Winds WSW 15-25 mph in the morning, then shifting to SSE at 25-45 mph as temperatures warm rapidly. Winds gusting over 50 mph.

March 19: Partly cloudy and windy. Near record high temperatures. Low 39. High 61. Winds S 35-50 mph, gusting to 60 mph. The first above-freezing low of the season is likely. The forecast high is 1 degree shy of the monthly record high of 62.

Weekly Analysis

As the backside winds of today's system depart on March 14, slightly below normal temperatures will prevail. A moderate snowstorm with light winds is forecast on March 15 and 16, with around 6 inches of new snow expected. Warm air will suddenly hit the area around lunchtime on the 18th, bringing above-normal temperatures. Strong gale-force winds will accompany the first above-freezing low on the 19th. This will be associated with a strong storm system developing during this time period. Conditions will be favorable for an early-season severe thunderstorm outbreak on the 20th in advance of a strong cold front. Damaging winds will be the primary threat, in addition to storm-force synoptic winds. A warm pattern is forecast to continue for the next 5 days following this.

For a country that's called 'Sunland', you sure have a lot of boisterous weather . Looks like a slightly more extreme version of Darwin in monsoon season, with a tropical cyclone hitting Friday/Saturday I assume?

The weather right now where I actually live is...36F and heavy rain...100% humidity. Maybe some snow later?

Pretty similar...

Actually the forecast above isn't my ideal weather. I hate that weather. It's just a bad week of weather in Candleville.
