In the past people have not been serious but this is a serious matter, you are forecasting to over thousands of viewers. This would be quite an honor forecasting for these many people. To apply just reply inside this topic using this template;
Do you have a general knowledge of Meteorology & Weather Forecasting with computer models:

I bet your gonna say here Craig goes again. But this is actually for the benefit, if you dont know what a weather weenie is;
A weather enthusiast who gets excited by extreme weather, but who has little or no knowledge of the science of meteorology.
Weenies often inhabit Internet message boards and issue "wishcasts", which are forecasts based on the author's desire for extreme weather. They try to justify their wishcasts with anecdotes and pseudoscience.
While professional forecasters examine computer models to make forecasts, weenies often treat the forecasters themselves as data sources upon which to form their wishcasts.
When an extreme weather event isn't going to plan, weenies will often react by issueing "bittercasts", which greatly overestimate the extent to which the supposed extreme weather has weakened.
Weenies are very self-absorbed and emotional, and become morbidly distraught when a forecasted extreme weather event doesn't pan out in their backyard. Even if the forecast was generally correct for surrounding areas, weenies will angrily denounce the forecasters.
I could name a lot of people here at could be weather weenies, but i wont. This is the main reason i cringe when coming here. All the questions "What does the model say for when" or "What time does that model come out". Seriously need to cut down on those comments and take it to the Personal message system. I would like a more thorough discussion here. I was once a weather weenie but i learned how to read models on my own. Perhaps maybe you could add a Weather Model Class here at the forum or maybe a Computer Model Forum so these guys could learn on there own? And then maybe we could have less questions about when this comes out or would this be snow for me, and maybe there would be more actual meteorologist that would join this forum.
Again, only for the benefit of the forum.
