Point Blank Range Forecasts: Mar. 23-24
Happy Spring everyone! Ah, but just because the calendar says it's a new season, doesn't mean the weather has to go with it. One more push of snow is coming to the GSB cities. My forecast on that is to come, but first a look back at the last prediction.
The previous PBR forecast involved temperatures for the GSB cities. Below is the low temperatures for the two days, 11th first with 13th in parenthesis.
Albany: 53 (43)
Binghamton: 44 (38)
Buffalo: 34 (34)
Rochester: 49 (38)
Syracuse: 43 (40)
Bull's Eye: Friday's high will be at least 10 degrees warmer than Sunday's for all five GSB cities.
On Target: Friday's high will be at least 10 degrees warmer than Sunday's for 3 of the five GSB cities.
Complete Miss: Friday's high will be at least 10 degrees warmer than Sunday's less than 3 of the five GSB cities.
Only two cities had double digit differences, so this is a Complete Miss, the 4th of the season.
Despite this, my average went up, thanks to a Bull's Eye on Golden Snow Globe. Is it weird that I can forecast better for different parts of the U.S. than I can for my home state? Maybe it's just the nature of our weather, or the forecasts themselves. I'm still below the 1.00 goal though, and with 2 forecasts left, there is not much room for another Complete Miss.
Now on to this forecast which involves snowfall. It looks like Binghamton will be the hardest hit among the GSB cities. In previous forecasts, I would take one city over the combined totals of the other four. Those would backfire badly. I've finally learned my lesson, going a little more cautious this time.
Bull's Eye: Binghamton has more snow than any other GSB city.
On Target: Binghamton has more snow than 3 of the other GSB cities.
Complete Miss: Any other result.
Be sure to check out the Golden Snow Globe site to see the forecast there as well.
