Potent California storm forecast
Beyond the graphic itself...a weather passion
Hi everyone...My name is Max. I will become 20 this upcoming December and as you all know my passion is weather like many of us. Weather down into a graphic is the best thing I enjoy doing. I have dome many graphics since 2006... but until this year I began publishing them here.
How do I gather the info displayed on the graphic?
Well, I go (most of the times) to NWS websites and from there I look at cities potentially affected by a upcoming storm from there I draw the line for possible impacts. The closer to potential damager the higher levels of weather they take under the color shading.
Just like this upcoming storm...places under yellow and pink are places for the most severe whether...also those under the dashed lines.
Remember...the shades are not 100% sure for happening but it is the best estimate I can come up with.
After I gather all info (sometimes also rom TWC) I put it down into a nice graphic...
I always try to make it look pretty (not just a dull 5 minute worth of time graphic) and most importantly...UNDERSTANDABLE FOR ALL OF YOU.
Also during the hurricane season I try to stay nice and understandable because the graph is not just for me to understand for for all the other interested fellas here.
I will keep going all through this winter posting graphic on potential winter storms until the next hurricane season begins and so on...I appreciate all the nice comments from you...
LOVE YOU ALL..
