May 22nd, 2012
After a brilliant week last week, the weather this week has taken a nose-dive. Tomorrow, the mean perfect weather index is only 6.1 for the nation as a whole. The best weather will shift east a bit tomorrow with Illinois now looking to be the best in the country. They will also have the largest area of perfect 10’s with the center around Leland, Illinois.
With the large storm system coming into the Pacific Northwest, there are some really terrible PWI scores in that region. Having lived in Oregon for many years, I can safely say I do not miss the rain and cold, especially with summer so near! Washington scores a dismal 3.7. I would like to point out some really great weather in the interior of Alaska as a large area of PWI 9’s appears around the Fairbanks area tomorrow.
1. Illinois 1. Washington
2. Indiana 2. Idaho
3. Wisconsin 3. Oregon
4. Missouri 4. Montana
5. Michigan 5. South Dakota
