How Forecasters Really Guess The Weather (Humor)



For some you non-weather people (most who read this blog actually), this joke may be a little "inside baseball", so I apologize in advance. But I know at least a few of my facebook friends are fellow Air Force weather forecasters, and might appreciate this. Then again, I bet most of you actually suspect that this is how we come up with our weather guesses anyway ...

The following is taken from the picture above:


Forecasting Dust 101

by: SSgt Kevin "KJ" Johnson


  1. Acquire one regulation dart board

  2. Write the numbers 0, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 on sticky note sheets

  3. Place above mentioned sticky note sheets on dart board

  4. Place blindfold over eyes

  5. Place forehead on end of baseball bat and spin around in circles for 5 minutes

  6. Puke

  7. Run as fast as you can into a wall

  8. Get up and realize you are a total idiot

  9. Pick up 3 darts and throw them (at the same time) at the dart board

  10. Lowest value is the visibility in miles. If you fail to hit anywhere on the dart board, repeat steps 4-9



Exception: These rules do not apply if your name is Dave Smith (our mid-shift forecaster), Chuck Norris, and/or Jack Bauer. If your name is mentioned above, you have the right to tell the dust to stop F#!@?ng with our flights. ;-)



Hope you liked it.

p.s. I didn't do a blog post yesterday, but the picture I took was just a cheesy sunset so there wasn't much to write about
