Forecast Results for Sept 18-23, 2010 and Experimental Forecasts

The forecast for the U.S. at this time warned of a possible low-pressure system about 200 miles south of Mobile and another area of possible tropical activity along the west coast of Florida.
Sept 19
The closest conditions came to fulfilling this forecast was on the 19th when, according to the National Weather Service, a low pressure system off of Matagorda, Texas brought 5 to 6 inches of rain. (See above map) This, of course, was farther west than what the forecast stated. Florida had just normal thunderstorm activity at times during the forecast period.
The results of the Experimental Forecasts Part 2 seem to suggest that the particular techniques experimented with are not that reliable and will not be included in my forecast method.
