Favorite National Hurricane Center Forecasters
Michael Froomkin is distressed that he has a favorite NHC forecaster:
Discourse.net: Wilma and Franklin Are Funny In Different Ways: [T]hree things are clear:
- They don't really have much confidence what this storm is actually going to do. A 1650 nautical mile gap in the five-day forecast is indeed rather heroic. [A nautical mile is 6080 feet or about 1853m.]
- Forecaster Franklin really does have a wry sense of humor. He's much more fun to read than the other forecasters.
- Things have come to a pretty pass when one has a favorite National Hurricane Center forecaster.
