I imagine it does.  But not knowing metrological theory, I couldn't explain how.  I know all our weather comes from the west or north-west.  The only time it comes from the south or east is if a hurricane is in the Gulf of Mexico or Atlantic.  I haven't put much emphasis on adding a weather vane even though the Zambretti would use it because living in a cove, the wind either comes up or down the cove... never across it.  So direction is meaningless unless I send up a weather balloon.   :grin:  Another project... another day.

As an alternate to the Zambretti I have found BT's Global Sager Forecaster to be in more detail

I looked over several links.  It sounds interesting, but two things off the bat, dissuades me. 

* I think converting it could be overcome, but it was not clear from my limited exposure how time consuming that would be.
 
* The second was more terminal - One article touted it's claim to fame over Zambretti was its ability to key-in current conditions and that improved prediction capability greatly.  Without extensive video capturing and significant AI to interpret cloud cover, and wind conditions, it does not appear to be usable.  And... I'm not really interested in having to hand-feed the program on a daily basis to arrive at a prediction.

However, if I'm mistaken about #2 or you can recommend some links that point to ways of overcoming the need to feed it manually, I would be very interested.

Thanks.
