People can't always pick up and move. A little grumbling and ventilating relieves stress. People have done this since there have been people

Pretty much useless

They keep updating their forecasts after the event has happened! Bogus models and antiquated and dated approach. Sorry. Get in with the times


The Editors's picture

We do not change our long-range forecasts after they have been published. Our forecasts are created up to 18 months in advance based on a number of factors, including solar activity, historical and forecasted weather patterns, and atmospheric conditions. As climate science has evolved, so have our forecasting methods, though we still rely on the basic theory that our founder used 228 years ago.

If you are looking for the latest, up-to-the-minute weather info, then I’m afraid our forecasts won’t be of much help. However, if you want to get a general idea of what weather to expect five months from now, our forecasts are the ones to use—and with an overall average accuracy of 80%, we still have faith in our methodology!

Yosemite waterfalls in September

Any idea if there will still be water flowing in the waterfalls in Sept. 2019, based on the current snow pack and rainfall? My husband and I are planning to visit the Valley from Sept. 1 or 2 to the 7th. When I went in August 2014, the waterfalls were all dry. :-( What's your best guesstimate as to this year? Thank you!


the Best time to see the Falls is May to June... I would go in May... the will be flowing well after that is get less very quickly. there is a website for Yosemite that will have more information and lots of pictures... Don't forget to see the Giant Sequoias, They are in the same area just a short distance away. Also in Kings Canyon Nation Park.. Grant Grove. Enjoy...

Weather, climate, change/no change man made or not

I read lots of stuff from all sorts of sources, from "shlock" to peer reviewed journals, and while I think this came out about a year ago in "Nature", I am not positive as I tossed the magazine before I copied the article; but the article stated that at least five planets are warming - Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars and Jupiter. Because the first two are sunward of us and solar winds blow out from the sun past them to Earth, etc., I think that is pretty good proof that, while we are not the best stewards of the planet, and can/must do better, we are not the primary cause of global warming. By the way the easiest way to cool the planet (which as an asthmatic, who loves warm weather I do not want) is just to pollute the air more, see studies on temperature drops after major volcanic eruptions. The most easily researched is the early 19th century "Year without a Summer", following the relatively small eruption of an Italian volcano. We are also in a dither about carbon dioxide, which people and animals exhale, we just need to plant more greenery as plants take in CO2 and release oxygen. Also, despite the rantings about methane levels it appears from the most recent studies that that is a result of warming, not a cause, and methane deteriorates rapidly, anyway. By the way, when did cows become the bad guys, I have found most of them to be very sweet.

I think it should not be raining so much for so long for four mo

I think it should not be raining for so many days. It is getting very tiring for people in Modesto California....

Love/hate rain

I agree that the rain for us here in California is at irritating levels now but thank God for the 2 inches above normal because 3 years ago I can not tell you how sad, with tears, I was when I saw the docks hanging down the side of the embankments of the lake as we were going past Mt. Shasta's area. The water levels were 15 to 20 feet from the end of the dock to the actual water line. I grew and lived in Washington state,say no more...

Tired of rain

It's getting pretty tiring for those of us in Sonoma too

RE: Rain

Stop whining. It rarely rains in the summer, and would you like the dust bowl to come back? The rains will alllow a sense of normalcy for activities in the summer. You are welcome!
