Yet another claims: To improve the transmission of positive ions from ground level to cloud level by a shock wave generator, a shroud is provided which surrounds the barrel of the generator for guiding a convective air flow vertically along the sides of the barrel to an orifice of the barrel. This is a weather anomaly that is not a truckers helper, for most drivers this is costly.

Weather Queries .NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center (CPC) takes a different approach to
averages. In its monthly and seasonal outlooks, it defines three ranges of temperature (or precipitation) that are equally likely. For example (note that I am making these numbers up), suppose that the average temperature for April in Stratford, Connecticut, is 49°F. From past records, the CPC determines that there is equal likelihood (a 1/3 chance) that the average April temperature will be below 47°, between 47° and 51° (near normal), and above 51°. ¹MCSF

D-Day Weather RevisitedThe European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecast (ECMWF) used modern assimilation techniques and weather data from the National Weather Service to reconstruct the weather leading up to and including Jun 6,1994. ECMWF's recent analysis reanalysis of the original forecasts illustrates the difficulties the 1944 forecasters faced-due to stormy weather in the Atlantic and fronts in the English Channel-and their subsequent accuracy.
