Supercomputer Weather: US Fires Forecast Hot & Dry

A 12 day weather forecast from the NOAA medium range supercomputer forecast model shows soaring temperatures throughout the Mid West of the United States, and few signs of rain through till July 5th.

The series of images below shows daily high temperatures and wind vectors (the arrows) each 24 hour hours through till July 5th, the end of the NOAA forecast period. Links beneath the pictures will take you to larger more detailed maps showing isobars and rain for each day.

According to this forecast there is no sign of either a fall in temperatures below daily temperatures in the mid-fourties Centigrade, nor any rain over the fire ground for the next 12 days.

At the end of the period temperatures are expected to be even higher than they are now.

While the accuracy of the supercomputer forecast model tends to drop off the further out the forecast is, NOAA's MRF model is often very good at predicting underlying weather patterns for a considerable period.
