Supercomputer Weather: May Day Around The World


May Day Rain Forecast For The South Island

Scoop has been consulting NOAA’s supercomputer on the weather forecast for May Day when demonstrators and workers will be taking to the streets all over the planet. Will their protests be disrupted by rain?

At this stage it appears weather will be ideal for May Day celebrations around the globe just about everywhere, with the possible exceptions of Seattle, Eastern Europe, Paraguay and Invercargill.

In New Zealand NOAA's supercomputer is forecasting a band of rain to come on to the country from the Tasman Sea early next week, bringing some rain at last to drought stricken Eastern areas of the South Island.

This rain is forecast to move North to Wellington on May 2nd. Links to forecasts of New Zealand’s beginning of May rains follow:

Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport

It hasn’t been much fun at all to see how “war on drugs in sport” has become a proxy version of the Cold War, fixated on Russia. This weekend’s banning of the Russian long jumper Darya Klishina took that fixation to fresh extremes. More>>
