You know that old saying: ” Everybody talks about the weather, but no one does anything about it!” 🙂 Not much can be done about controlling the weather quite yet, but there are a lot of people trying to predict it.
Climatologists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have announced their 2007 Spring Outlook. This forecast is their best educated guess about the weather from April through June.
Taking a quick look at the maps, it seems that our part of the country will have a pretty average spring.
The NOAA website is the place I go every day to get my weather forecasts. There is a ton of information there. If you would like more detail than the simplified forecasts from The Weather Channel then by all means visit their site. After all, it is ours, we pay for it through our taxes. It is an agency of the Commerse Department of the United States.
NOAA is celebrating 200 years of service to our country this year. It traces its roots back to 1807 when Thomas Jefferson established the Survey of the Coast.
I remember several months ago, there was some talk about selling our weather service to a private company. 😕 I’m not so sure if that is a good idea. It sounds sort of like selling the Army or the Grand Canyon.
That’s enough for now… my bursitis tells me we are in for a change in the weather!
