Idaho, Nevada, Utah & Vermont Tie For Best Weather Sunday

A four-way tie for first on Sunday with Idaho, Nevada, Utah, and Vermont all having a mean score of 8.8. Technically, Idaho is the winner because it has the most number of perfect 10s including Idaho Falls and Pocatello. Heat, humidity, and thunderstorms make for the worst weather in the South. Although, Alaska has the worst mean of 4.9 but parts of the state will see nice weather including the Panhandle and the interior.


Best: 1. Idaho 2. Nevada 3.  Utah 4. Vermont 5. Oregon
Worst: 1. Alaska 2. Louisiana 3. Mississippi 4. Alabama 5. Tennessee

The West Is Best To Start The Holiday Weekend

Oregon will lead the way on the first day of the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Perfect 10s through much of the eastern part of the state extending into Idaho, California and Nevada. Alaska will see the worst overall weather but the Southeast Panhandle will not be as bad as the rest of the state. In the lower 48, Wyoming will be on the bottom.


Best: 1. Oregon 2. Nevada 3. Washington 4. Michigan 5. California
Worst: 1. Alaska 2. Wyoming 3. Arkansas 4. Louisiana 5. Colorado

Memorial Weekend Forecast

May 26th, 2012

Saturday May 26th, 2012

It’s an important vacation weekend, so I thought I would do PWI map for all three Memorial Weekend days. Of course, three days out, the National Weather Service forecasts might be a bit off on the details, but for the most part it should be accurate.

We start the weekend with some abysmal weather in Montana with a huge area of PWI 1, the lowest score possible. Lots of rain, wind, and cold temperatures in that area.  The best weather will be in New England where Vermont will lead the nation with a mean of 8.5 and even a few perfect 10’s in the southern part of the state. Areas of Northern California will see the most perfect 10’s tomorrow and my pick for Saturday is Santa Rosa, California. The national mean is a low 5.2.

Overall, the mean for the nation increases to 5.7 on Sunday, mainly due to much improved weather in the Desert Southwest. Arizona come in the highest on this day mainly due to less wind and more sunshine. My pick in Arizona is Winona. California will also see quite a few perfect 10′ s on Sunday, but comes in second overall to Arizona, mainly due to the influence of the high Sierra Mountains. My pick in California will be in the foothills of the Sierras…Placerville.  Sorry Montana, this just isn’t your weekend.

On Memorial Day, more improving weather across the nation as the mean rises again to 6.3, but very little perfect weather. This is in part due to the very warm and humid conditions east of the

Mississippi. New England looks like it will have another brilliant day and actually has probably the three best days on average.  Most of the perfect 10’s on Monday appear in the desert of Nevada and

Arizona. My pick for Memorial Day will be Ursine, Nevada.
