Correct me if I'm wrong, but I get the impression this is one of those years that no one REALLY has a good idea of what might happen. No El Nino, no La Nina. No clear signal of any sort except that it's been a dry Fall so far. You can check out the presentations on the Oregon AMS Meetings Page. I did the first presentation, looking back on a year of exciting weather. Lots of interesting graphs and charts, some of which you've seen on this blog in the past year. You can find that on the same page or right here.
The highlight for me was a woman asking (in front of 160 people) what I thought of the government cover up of chemtrails. I instantly received a headache and thought of Art Bell. Don't get me wrong, I watched almost every episode of the X-Files and, (farther back), might believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive somewhere beyond the heavens…but please, no chemtrails!!!
All in all there were good times today! It's possible that next year's meeting will be on a Saturday, which would probably work much better for lots of you that have non-weather jobs and can't get out of work.
Slow weather this weekend, no changes. Dying front sags over us later tonight and tomorrow, then strong offshore flow Sunday and Monday. MAYBE some rain late next week, so enjoy the sunshine this weekend. It'll give you a chance to read up on the latest in Government Secrecy too…Mark Nelsen
