We saw solid overall model performance
Precipitation forecasts were very accurate here
Nailed the severe storm here
But we continue to see issues with the PBL
And both temperature and wind forecasts were poor for much of Berlin
Write up an unfunded
We'll get NCAR on that right away
NCAR is out. We've been ordered to turn off WRF
We will be running the Unified Model now
Unless you actually write code and run software...get out
Turn off WRF?
For a foreign model?
One that is totally and completely a black box to us?
It will take 10 years to get back to where we are now
We'll never be able to replicate the WRF product suite
We have no expertise on advanced data assimilation and data quality
ACAPS will have to start from scratch
Are they aware how much all this will cost?
My fuhrer, the license fee is only $100K annually
$100K? We'll spend that much just on per diem to travel to Exeter!
My fuhrer, we need a global capability to support our global mission
Global mission? You know what we could use to support a global mission?
Which was on the verge of being implemented
before this nonsense started!
There has been no PR offensive on this
Capital Weather Gang is going to eat us alive
The Navy, who abandoned WRF before a single line of code was written
NOAA, whose budget is so big they could pretend to play along while doing their own thing
Now compared to us, they look like PATRIOTS!
It will only get worse from there
Cliff Mass is going to write a blog post and beat his chest so hard
That the switchboards will light up at the Capitol
We'll have congressmen asking questions
Fox News will get the xenophobes all riled up
The weather channel will try to make a controversy out of it since no one watches them anymore
All of this turmoil for what?
So we can sell some F-35s to the UK?
So the Air Force won't shut us down?
They would never do that...weather is more important than anything
No use fighting it
Their 500 anomaly scores at day 5 are just too good
The future is the UKMO
The US weather enterprise will never get its act together
Too many bureaucracies, budgets split a million ways
God Save the Queen
