Introduction

My Perfect Weather Index

April 30th, 2012

This is the very first perfect weather index blog entry. I hope others are as interested as I am in the pursuit of an “ideal” weather day. So how do I create these maps and what are my criteria? Well, it’s a complicated scientific process using GIS (Geographic Information Systems) and total subjectivity. In my mind, 72 degrees, a light breeze, low humidity, and full sunshine is perfect.

So is there some place in the USA that lives up to this high standard tomorrow April 30th, 2012? Only one. 33.736, -109.582 is the latitude and longitude of the location. Where is that? Well, it’s in Arizona in the middle of NOWHERE! I’ll call it Tonto Lake, but the nearest town is 20 miles to the NE called Nutrioso, AZ.
