I'm a CMU Honors student and love meteorology and extreme weather. I've been fascinated by weather since I was 5, and plan on becoming a meteorologist

I am starting my own weekly forecast for my home town. This is another aspect of my independent study that I am doing this year. I will be making a weekly forecast on Sundays for my area. They will be based off of models and official forecasts, mostly on models. They will sound a little like an official forecast as that is what I want it to sound like. However, they are not an official NWS forecast. I will analyze that forecast the following weekend based off of the NWS forecast. This is separate from my tropical update blog and will not ever be included in it. I hope you enjoy this new topic I write about.
Monday: Showers in morning followed by cloudy skies in the afternoon. Chance of rain 30% and chance of snow 0%. The high will be near 50F. Winds should be 15-30mph with gusts up to 35mph. A cold front passing through will provide a cool windy day so have a jacket.
Monday night: Skies will be clearing from cloudy to partly cloudy. Winds will be decreasing from earlier down to 5-15mph. The temperature will be around 36F. Chance of rain 5% and chance of snow 0%.
