How many of you would pay attention to a regional forecast? It's a huge area, and would be kind of hard to do. But, I think a generic forecast of what will happen over the course of the week would be fun to watch for?

Let me know. The last thing I would want is to bite off more than I can chew. But, I am searching for ways to give this forum a very "local" feel.

Would anyone actually pay attention?

If I were in your region (and heck even though I'm not) I'd pay attention.

At the very least it wouldn't prompt me to check my local weather.

Check your low temps for after your storms blow through, mine here in NE TX is supposed to be 37.

I suppose. I was going to look for some links to provide people. That would certainly make things easier on me.

But, I was looking for some temp graphs, too. Something to provide some text along with a graph. Something that would break our region up into a few parts. I guess these days, we can all find our local forecasts. I just wonder who does vs who would like it spoonfed a little easier?

I was thinking I would go subregion by subregion on Thursdays providing a crude weekend forecast for our SFG'ers with 9 to 5's. I would do it on Monday, but so much changes from Monday to Thursday still.


Afterthought......maybe I hit the bigger cities and just regurge the area forecasts here? Or, at the very least provide the links?

Chicago.....future link
Indianapolis...future link
Minneapolis...future link
and so on...

I know things change, sometimes over 10 miles, but this may at least help some cruising the forum to stop in here and see other local info as well as their regional weather for the weekend gardening plans.

YW, I love to check the long range predictions, and then keep track to see how acurate they are, they are a few days behind this year so far.

Looks like the odds favor a hotter than normal summer here in TX, but cooler across the northern tier...

These are exactly the tools I would use. I am a huge NOAA and Wunderground honk. I realize I could just tell people to go there and punch in their zip codes, but they wouldn't need to come HERE anymore.

Most of us avid people are doing this anyway, too.

My only issue with the NOAA site is it really varies from location to location. There's a difference in the way STL, KC, and Tulsa are all set up. But, it's the most thorough site out there by far.

I'm bouncing back and forth between taking people to the sites or taking the sites to the people. I think we need to find a way to deliver the forecasts to the members of the forums. That way they get in the habit of checking here for their weather, too........and checking some recent posts while here.

How About... Empty Watching the forecast.

Post  ErinAdkins 4/7/2011, 8:35 am

I have to watch the regional forcast everyday. Our weather here in Ohio usually comes from the west or south west so whatever is going on west of us one day will be upon us in the following days.

Me too. I find that what usually happens in Tulsa, OK, happens to me the next day. It's likely the same for you in Ohio. You watch us in STL or a little south of us, and you know a little more of what you can expect?
