Mr. Cloud Maven person doesn’t have to tell you, the advanced Cloud Maven Juniors, where he gets such an outrageously distant forecast that most meteorologists are afraid to make; it originates with clustered lines on something we call the “ensembles”, plots representing the greatest advance in computing and weather forecasting since the Intel 486 chip could be had at 386 prices. In case you don’t believe me again…..
Right out of Computer Shopper magazine, too! You can’t find deals like this today, that’s for sure.
Here’s what I am talkin’ ’bout, the “ensembles” or fondly, “spaghetti plots” for 5 PM AST, the 27th of December, two weeks from now:

We still have melting snow here from a few big snowstorms (for the Seattle area, anyway). For more on ice and snow, I post at
Thanks, Jon. That image out of Computer Shopper, still makes me gasp at how much we were willing to pay for such little potential. Of course, it was huge potential back in the day!
