20090317. Sherwood3N North Dakota is the precipitation-only NOAA/NWS cooperative weather station at a US-Canada border station. With input data ending 200106, this prediction was the sole single site prediction
Dynamic Predictables presented at a NOAA Climate Services workshop July 22, 2004 in Columbia, Missouri. This precipitation prediction and its companion climate division (ND01-NW) has been shown at several
science meetings (AASC, AAAS) and other public presentations.
With a predictive model since superceded, the main point is that the general character of yearly and seasonal precipitation can be predicted at monthly time-step and site specific now going on eight years in advance.
That part of North America is known for large seasonal and interannual precipitation variation and equally challenging temperatures.
