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 Prevailing Media Narratives About The Govt Coalition

The media reports the facts…. but that’s not the end of it, and nor should it be. It also marshals those facts and creates a story from them, usually one with a moral that’s implied or explicit. After six months though, it is still unclear just what the dominant media narrative is of the coalition government. Is it Idealistic But Impractical? Is its Heart in the Right Place, but is it Taking On Too Much? Is the coalition proving to be Fractious And Unstable, or is it Surprisingly Adept at Keeping Its Inherent Rifts Out of the Public Eye?
