WEATHERNATOR FORECASTING CONTEST FORECAST PAGE

Weathernator Forecasting Contest Discussion

Welcome to the Weathernator Forecasting Contest Discussion.  During the contest you will come to this page and use its information to create your forecasts.  Here I will provide a weather map and will write a discussion that explains what is on the map and how it relates to your forecasts.  Below you will find data from various models that will give you possibilities for temperatures to be used in your forecasts.

NO FORECASTING THIS WEEK.  WE WILL FORECAST FOR PORTLAND, OR  STARTING MONDAY FEBRUARY 27TH.
