Weather Models: Theres an App for That


I recently discovered an app called Deep Weather, which has helped me better understand what forecasters are thinking about the forecast models they use to predict weather conditions. The app compiles data from U.S. National Weather Service forecast discussions. Following along can often provide additional clues for the reader about not just what is in the forecast, but why and how confident the forecasters are. The discussions are amended and updated throughout the day, and often are quirky and colorful.

My only complaint is that they are published in the annoying and dated ALL CAPS FORMAT THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABANDONED IN THE 1970s. While the discussions are a bit nerdy, theyre extremely helpful to me in gaining the big picture and gauging my confidence or skepticism in forecasts.
