Weather Forum inside lingo


Recommended Posts

With snow showing on the models, there are some new members who probably don’t understand some of the terms developed by weather forum regulars.

Take this short test to see how many you know.

A.       The 18z GFS, due to its frequently absurd results

B.      People who stay up all night posting the latest model runs

Fake Cold

A.       Cold air that forms in-place in the PNW

B.      What you tell your boss that you caught so you can stay home watching model runs

Polar Vortex

A.       The low pressure that forms over the North Pole in the winter

B.      What you get from your spouse when you go to bed at 2 am after watching model runs

Clown Range

A.      The Euro after 10 days

B.      The GFS after 10 hours


A.       Bright pink on the snow maps

B.      Medicine taken when the models trend north


A.       Small city in Oregon where college football coaches are trained for Florida jobs

B.      Where 15-year-olds are trained in nuclear physics

Back door blast

A.       When frigid air moves in from the east

B.      What you get in prison if you hire Deweydog as your attorney

That’s just a few.  Add your own.
