Weather Eye: How to Do a 5-day Forecast

Friday, January 7, 2011, 9am - 5pm

At beautiful Frey Vineyards,
14000 Tomki Rd, Redwood Valley, CA 95470 (Map)
With Dennis Klocek

Learn how to develop what the old timers called a weather eye: making reliable 5-day weather forecasts by using cloud formations, wind directions, old weather rhymes and basic lunar rhythms. A good forecaster can look at a cloud, assess the wind, recall the moon's position and bring up an appropriate weather rhyme to help organize the next couple of days work. In a meeting of the old world and the new, what the weather eye has seen in actual phenomena can be strengthened by online information that is readily available. By day's end, you should be able to easily make a 3-day forecast and with more practice a 5-day forecast. This could be part of your tool kit for your agricultural work that is at the mercy of the weather.

Topics will include: reading cloud formations; frontal passages that are familiar in West Coast seasonal patterns; assessing the value of old farmers weather rhymes; sun and moon lines and the patterns of declination that drive the shifts that create weather patterns.

In conjunction with the Biodynamic Association of Northern California (BDANC) Saturday January 8 with Dennis Klocek , Climate: The Soul of the Earth
