A terrible day in the Great Lakes tomorrow with the blizzard moving in. The entire country will see relatively low PWI scores tomorrow with all the cool weather around. Only South Florida will see anything above PWI 7. All in all, it looks like winter!
Best: 1. Florida 2. Arizona 3. Louisiana 4. Texas 5. North Dakota
Worst: 1. Michigan 2. Illinois 3. Wisconsin 4. Indiana 5. Ohio
Monday December 17th, 2012
Perfect weather is still missing from the map Monday as winter really takes hold of the country. Louisiana will see the best weather as a whole Monday, followed closely by Texas. Really awful weather in the Pacific Northwest and Northern Rockies as snow, wind and rain dominate. Even down in Hawaii the PWI will be held down by some clouds and rain.
Best: 1. Louisiana 2. Texas 3. Mississippi 4. Oklahoma 5. Arkansas
Worst: 1. Oregon 2. Idaho 3. Washington 4. New Hampshire 5. Wyoming
Saturday December 15th, 2012
The mean Perfect Weather Index for the nation Saturday will be a low 4.8 and perfect 10’s will be completely absent for the first time since last winter. Perhaps this is the first true sign of winter in America. The best weather will be confined to Florida where the highest scores will be along the northern Gulf and inland parts of North Central Florida.
The worst weather will be in the Great Lakes where a messy combination of rain and snow will occur tomorrow. Even Arizona will be a pitiful 3.6 mean which is quite a bit lower than even Alaska. Not that Arizona will be colder than Alaska, but there will be clouds, rain and wind whereas much of interior Alaska will see sunshine and light winds.
Best: 1. Florida 2. Oklahoma 3. Georgia 4. Texas 5. South Carolina
Worst: 1. Wisconsin 2. Michigan 3. Iowa 4. Indiana 5. Minnesota
Sunday November 25th, 2012
A near repeat of Saturday expected for Sunday. The same South Florida locations will be prefect again and you can add Fort Myers. Florida once again comes out on top overall. A small area of PWI 10’s in Texas near Hardin also in southwest Oklahoma around Altus. Nearly the same California and Arizona locations as Saturday including: San Luis Obispo, Thousand Oaks, Ludlow, and Temecula.
Best: 1. Florida 2. Louisiana 3. Oklahoma 4. Texas 5. Arizona
Worst: 1. New York 2. Montana 3. Michigan 4. Wyoming 5. Idaho
Saturday November 24th, 2012
It is now perfect weather season in South Florida. Cooler and drier air has finally pushed summer out of the state and with lows tonight in the 50s…Floridians should open their windows to let the fresh air in. Of course, with lows in the 50s…Floridians will certainly complain it’s too cold. Tomorrow looks perfect from Florida City…to Miami…to West Palm Beach, with one caveat however, the beaches will only be a PWI 9 as the winds will be slightly strong.
The rest of the good weather will be in California and Arizona in many of the same places as today. Hollister, Hearst Castle, Palmdale, and San Clemente look best. In Arizona a couple picks are Kingman and Kirkland.
The worst weather by far will be downwind of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. Lots of lake effect snow and cold temperatures will keep Oswego, New York and Erie, Pennsylvania at PWI 1.
Best: 1. Florida 2. Arizona 3. California 4. Texas 5. New Mexico
Worst: 1. New York 2. Pennsylvania 3. Vermont 4. West Virginia 5. Oregon
Friday November 23rd, 2012
A cold storm in the Great Lakes will provide the first significant snow for the region. Lots of PWI 1’s mainly in the UP of Michigan and downwind of Lake Erie. This storm will push cooler temperature south and limit the amount of good weather in the nation to the far Southeast and Southwest. The best weather by far will be in Florida Friday with a mean of 9.2 and two areas of perfect 10’s. The first will be centered around Tallahassee but extend west to Portland, Florida…and south to Athena, Florida…and north to Camilla, Georgia. The other area of 10’s in Florida will be around Lake Okeechobee from Belle Glade to La Belle.
Out West, lots of 10’s in California including: Hollister, Hearst Castle, Morro Bay, Vandenberg AFB, Santa Monica, and Oceanside to name a few. A few 10’s in Nevada most notably at the Hoover Dam and just a few isolated pockets in Arizona.
Best: 1. Florida 2. South Carolina 3. Georgia 4. Arizona 5. California
Worst: 1. Michigan 2. Washington 3. Ohio 4. Wisconsin 5. Pennsylvania
Thanksgiving Day November 22nd, 2012
Overall, nothing terrible expected for Turkey Day 2012 weatherwise. The worst weather will be in the far northern Midwest around Grand Forks, North Dakota where rain will turn to snow and wind. The winner tomorrow will be Alabama with a mean score of 8.9 for the state. The state with the most perfect 10’s will be in Arizona. Lots of 10’s east of Tucson including: Tombstone, Safford, and Willcox. A few locations in Southern California as well…most notably Thousand Oaks, Ramona, and Twenty Nine Palms.
Enjoy the holiday!
