Part of my morning ritual is looking at weather data so I can get up to speed. There’s a lot of green on this chart. I don’t like what I see!
First the good news. During the warm season it’s unusual to have all-day rain. Unfortunately it’s not uncommon to have long duration gloom.
The image at the top of this entry is a screencap from BUFKIT–the Swiss Army Knife of weather. The weather model is the GFS, our go-to model when looking out a week. BUFKIT is read right-to-left, so today is on the far right side and the upcoming week spreads out to the left.
Those vertical bars of green represent rain. At the moment each six hour block through Saturday has at least a tiny bit of rain.
Flowers and plants will grow. We’ll be a little less happy. No, actually we’ll be downright depressed.
