Board update
Effective April 12, 2021, we had to delete about 8000 frivolous spammer accounts going back over a year. There was no way for us to locate all legitimate user applications, so some may have been deleted. If you are an actual user who created an account since March 2020 but did not get approved, please register again. You can also contact us via the Contact link on the main Weather Graphics webpage to get assistance. When you contact us, it is essential you provide brief but detailed info on your meteorological background or inform us of any previous order you've made, this way we can tell you are a legit user, otherwise we will assume it is a spammer trying to bypass the application checks. Thanks. -Tim

Adjustment to precip. water

Post by MMWeather »

Have not been happy with previous PW script. Have searched online and have found estimates that include the Grav. Constant. When I have included that into the equation the numbers are way off. This script like the orig. is just an estimate. I just ran this and checked with the spc site. except for the really low values out west, everything east of the Miss. is very close. So here is the updated version that *appears* to be closer to reality. The SPC site shows "PW for lowest 400Mb" This script uses sfc to 500mb.
