The first big fall storm will sweep across the East Coast Tuesday with high wind, heavy rain, and thunderstorms. From Maine to Florida, nothing better than a PWI 5 and even four grid squares of PWI 1 on the peaks of the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Vermont comes in at the bottom in this mess with a mean of only 3.9.
Despite the terrible weather on the East Coast, the mean for the nation remain pretty high at 7.4, thanks mainly to the Midwest. Nebraska and Kansas lead the way with some amazing weather expected. A large area of perfect 10’s in Nebraska from Burwell south to Franklin. Across the border in Kansas, Mankato and Hesston will be perfect as well. Some perfect 10’s even sneak across into northern Oklahoma as well.
From the Rockies west, clusters of perfect weather as well including many mountainous locations in New Mexico and Arizona. A couple picks here include Edgewood, New Mexico and Flaggstaff, Arizona. In California, Big Bear Lake, Santa Barbara, Lake Tahoe, and Santa Cruz. Heading north into the Pacific Northwest, most of the 10’s will be along the spine of the Coast and Cascade Mountains until you get to northern Washington. Some lowland picks here include: Sequim, Everett, and Bellingham. In the Cascades, I would like to point out Roslyn, Washington. This is where the 1990’s tv show Northern Exposure was filmed. A great show for it’s time! I still remember the first show in which the newly shocked and awed doctor from New York threw a complete and utter fit in his vehicle when he came to the realization of exactly where he was. And having lived in Alaska and met some really odd but self-sufficient people, the characters on the show were not that far off. Anyway, back to the perfect weather. Last stop is in Eastern Idaho where many little towns hit the perfect 10 including: Driggs, Ovid, and Auburn, Wyoming near the border.
