Farmers’ Almanac™ Releases 2020 -2021 National Winter Outlook – Rainy with Normal Temps for Northern California and Mild and Dry for Southern California. divide” because of its unusual outlook.
Netflix confirmed that The Rain will be coming back for a third and final series on June 18, 2019. The announcement confirmed that the show will be expected for release in 2020. Series one featured eight episodes while season two featured six, so it’s not yet clear how many will be in the third outing.
Apparently, 30 % does not mean there’s a 30 % chance it’s going to rain. According to Buzzfeed, that 30 % is based on what the chances that it’s going to rain are multiplied by the percentage of the area that will get the rain. So, “50%” in the forecast doesn’t mean there’s a 50-50 chance it will rain.
According to the National Weather Service, if you see a 40 percent chance of rain, ” there is a 40 percent chance that rain will occur at any given point in the area.”
Farmers’ Almanac predicts cold, wild mix for 2020 -2021 winter. Winter is coming, apparently with a vengeance. The Farmers’ Almanac recently released its extended forecast for the 2020 -2021 season, which shows this upcoming winter could be brutally cold and snowy for much of the country.
According to the October 2020 outlook from NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, much of the contiguous United States is likely to observe a much warmer and drier than average month as we move into the middle of autumn.
According to the Almanac: Summer will be hotter and rainier than normal. The hottest periods will be between mid-June, mid-to-late July, and mid-August. For late summer and early fall, during September and October, the weather is also expected to be warmer than normal, but with below-normal precipitation.
We predict summer 2020 will be warmer and drier tan average overall. We think this summer will be around 1C to 1.5C above the long term average. GWV expects all three summer months to have above average temperatures with an equal chance of July or August being the hottest month of the summer overall.
Summer 2020 is expected to be near average or hotter across the Lower 48, according to the latest outlook issued by The Weather Company, an IBM Business. This summer is also expected to be warmer than last year for the contiguous United States.
The forecast of a 30 percent chance of rain can mean all of the area will get rain if it rains, but the forecaster has only a 30 percent confidence that rain will indeed arrive. It can also mean that scattered rain is a certainty, but it will affect only 30 percent of the area.
A 30 % chance of rain also means a 70% chance it won’t rain. A ‘ 30 % chance of rain ‘ means every point in the forecast area has an 30 % chance of observing measurable precipitation (at least 0.01″) during the 12 hour forecast period. It also means rain expected over 30 % of the forecast area.
The ” Probability of Precipitation ” (PoP) simply describes the probability that the forecast grid/point in question will receive at least 0.01″ of rain. So, in this example, there is a 40 percent probability for at least 0.01″ of rain at the specific forecast point of interest!
Most of the time, the forecaster is expressing a combination of degree of confidence and areal coverage. If the forecaster is only 50% sure that precipitation will occur in 80% of the area, the PoP (chance of rain ) is 40 %.
The Short Answer: A seven- day forecast can accurately predict the weather about 80 percent of the time and a five – day forecast can accurately predict the weather approximately 90 percent of the time. However, a 10- day —or longer— forecast is only right about half the time.
We measure how good the forecast is by its “reliability” – a perfectly reliable probability forecast of 40 percent means that on the average, it rains somewhere within the space-time value 40 percent of the time when that 40 percent probability forecast is made.
