Why the Different Forecasts? I got a question from a reader that I though was very good. The question is this:
"Why do forecasts differ from one meteorologist to another?" This particular viewer was referring more specifically to all of the local television weather forecasts. This was not the first time I heard this and talking to my other meteorologist friends in the media, it's seems pretty common especially from weather savvy viewers. Putting together a weather forecast can be fairly quick (about one hour) or a bit more time consuming (several hours or more). It all depends on how much time you spend analyzing weather data, your experience forecasting in the particular town or city and your knowledge of what you are looking at.
For instance, The National Weather Service puts out two daily forecasts for the entire area. These forecasts give the high and low, precipitation probabilities, wind speeds and explain what kind of weather is expected over the next several days. Outside meteorologists can look at this data and use it completely, partially or not at all. That is why I say putting together a forecast can be fairly quick - we can just basically cut and paste.
Another way to forecast is to actually analyze many of the weather computer models that we receive on a daily basis. These models get updated throughout the day - some more often than others. These various models can take time to look at

and analyze. At times, one model may predict a cold air mass coming while another one predicts it will stay warm. One model may predict snow, another rain. These weather computer models can also change from one model run to another. For instance, one day a particular model can show a cold front coming in tomorrow night. This same model the following morning may show the cold front pulling up short of our area and not even being a factor in our temperatures. So, it all depends on what model a meteorologist looks at and how much credibility he gives to the models. Knowledge of the region and education is important as well. Having a grasp on how storms move through this area and how the mountains and elevation play a part in our weather is critical. Experience (time spent living in this area) forecasting in a particular part of the country is also a big plus. So, it all depends on how much time is spent preparing and analyzing and what the particular meteorologist thinks will occur with the atmosphere. Weather is not an exact science and we all miss the forecast from time to time, but at least you have an idea of how we go about it.

Indian Motorcycle unveils 177 gold & black Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Scout Bobbers
ndian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company, and Jack Daniel’s, America’s first registered distillery, have unveiled the Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Scout Bobber. Only 177 of these bikes will be built globally with the build number a nod to the “Old No. 7 Brand”.
For the third straight year, Indian Motorcycle joined forces with Klock Werks Kustom Cycles to create these bikes, taking inspiration from the gold and black fire trucks used by the Jack Daniel’s Fire Brigade, the only distillery in the world with its own fire brigade.
Steve Menneto, Indian Motorcycle President said: “Our partnership with Jack Daniel’s celebrates American craftsmanship of the highest order. This year’s limited-edition bike draws inspiration from the incredible story of Jack Daniel’s Fire Brigade, while honouring the passion and dedication of firefighters and emergency medical responders who serve our country.”
Each of the 177 individually numbered motorcycles are accented with Jack Daniel’s Fire Brigade themes. The bike has subtle two-tone matte black paint, a first for Indian Motorcycle, and is covered in real 24-karat gold graphics on the tank and fenders. The 24-karat gold
carries through to the Fire Brigade emblem on the tank and the “Bottles and Throttles Don’t Mix” emblem on the front fender. Other custom details include a perforated genuine leather seat with Jack Daniel’s embroidery and custom grips, pegs, and shift levers inspired by the Old No. 7 Brand.
Premium gloss black finishes on the fender struts, hand control levers, engine valve covers, and exhaust tips, while a gold coloured Indian Scout badge further showcases the attention to detail given in the design of this limited-edition bike. Also unique is a one-of-a-kind Montana Silversmith badge that’s individually numbered and coated with real 24-karat gold.
“The public’s response to the motorcycles that Indian Motorcycle and Jack Daniel’s have collaborated on has vastly exceeded our expectations year-overyear,” said Greg Luehrs, Director of Events and Sponsorships for Jack Daniel’s. “In celebration of this great partnership and our own Jack Daniel’s Fire Brigade, we are delighted to deliver a bike that honours firefighters and EMS first responders while also reinforcing the message that “Bottles and Throttles Don’t Mix.”
The Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Scout Bobber will be available for order starting 12pm EST on Tuesday 13th March.
Each comes with a two-year unlimited mileage factory warranty and free membership in the Indian Motorcycle Riders Group™ for one year.
The limited edition Scout Bobbers will be hand-painted and built, with delivery starting in July 2018.
The original collaboration began in 2016 when the two iconic brands came together to create the Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Springfield and Indian Chief Vintage in celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the Jack Daniel Distillery. These 2016 models sold out in less than eight hours, while the 2017 Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Chieftain sold out in less than 10 minutes.
