Weather Issues of Late

Recommended Posts

With all of the really high winds and strong episodic rain lately, I have been checking out some weather websites looking for causes. I must be overlooking something. I can't find the cause. Hmmmmm. Can anyone help?

Some report sustained winds at 20MPH. Okay. I see that. Some say wind gusts to in excess of 81KPH. Okay, we see those too.

I'm still looking for a Caribbean storm but can't find one.

What gives here?

P.S., it seems to me that this kind of weather could bode ill for BJBF activities in various venues around town, e.g., in the Amphitheater at VE.

Check this out.  I think it is the big storm in the U.S. northeast that is swirling around all the way to Panama.  The same thing happened with that big storm in January.

You may be interested in taking a look at predictwind.com. I subscribe for $10/year and check their forecasts daily - but I have no other interest in their business.

I attach a sequence of daily screen shots of one of their pages for the past week, for my location (Lucero, which is in the wind shadow of La Estrella and has somewhat less dry season wind exposure than most of the Boquete district). The sequence shows that as early as last Monday, the ECMWF model predicted violent winds for Friday, and that prediction was maintained, and extended to Saturday, during the week. The other three models weren't as early, and finally got around to predicting the winds with a 24-36 hour lead time.

ECMWF stands for European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts - it is a recent addition to the predictwind.com offering, but seems superior to the other three which are based on US and Canadian meteorological data sets and computer models. predictwind.com generates forecasts for any, very precisely defined, location.
