* BT profile for N. California peaks this Fri/Sat Nov. 23-24, correctly forecasting the 1-7 inch total precip expected for that area.  Good job BT!

The Berg Timer for the next two months is available below.
It's really interesting to watch how well the weather coincides with a location's profile.  It really works!  
I'll provide more forecast tools asap.
There's lots more to do.  Larry


Maybe you want to know if it'll rain next month on your wedding, grand opening, golf day, vacation, or neighborhood barbeque.  Next month is close to impossible for any weatherman to attempt successfully and consistently.  But the Berg Timer can do it with great reliability!  

Maybe you want snow for a skiing vacation.  BT can tell you that.  Maybe you're planning a Caribbean vacation.  It can tell you if your date is in a danger zone for hurricanes.

How about hurricanes in the caribbean for business or vacation?  Will a winter storm delay your Thanksgiving or holiday travel?  
Those questions have haunted travelors forever.  Airline delay questions are easily answered by the Berg Timer.  


Berg Timer Profile Days --- How to get the future weather for your desired location

To get the probability for precipitation for your desired location you simply compare the profile for the state location with the desired date numbers in the Table (all state profiles and Table shown below).  See if the profile peaking days of your state show up on the day you desire to know about in the Table.

Let's say you want to know if it will rain in New York State on September 13.  Go to the Table of profile numbers below and look at the numbers for September 13.  Let's say the numbers are -11, -6, -3, -1, 6, 9, 10.  Then consult the profile for New York State (below) to see if it peaks on any of the table numbers.  Yes, the profile for New York peaks on '9'.  So there's a pretty good chance that it will rain in New York state on September 13.  It's that simple.
You now know when rain is likely for the next couple months.  Put an * by the days that share two or more Profile Numbers.  The chance for rain is even better for those days.


State Profiles

The profiles for the 50 states are available below.  California has been divided into north/south, Texas into east/west, and Florida into north/south.  Key West is also available there.
Most weather fronts move from northwest to southeast in the United States, starting in the extreme northwest, through the Rockies to the central states, sometimes moving all the way to the east coast taking several days.  Fronts can also move up from the Gulf in the summer months causing extreme rain storms and some tornadoes.
In the winter we see fronts starting down from Canada moving the cold air as far down as north Florida.  
Geography of course also plays a role in U.S. climate.  The southwest states are generally dry so their profiles for precipitation mean 'best chance' for precipitation.
not likely chance.  
It takes several days for fronts to move from the northwest to the southeast, if they do reach the southeast.  If you scroll down to the Nebraska and Missouri profiles you'll notice that the precipitation profile for Nebraska peaks and bottoms mostly a day or two ahead of Missouri.  That of course demonstrates the movement of fronts across the U.S. and is a proof for the Berg Timer profiles' accuracy and validity.  I've always tried my best to find the most accurate and complete precipitation and temperature data in my work.  Accuracy is always most important.

You can test the reliability of a profile for yourself by looking at the U.S. weather map at the bottom of weather.com's home page to see where it's raining.  Then note the profile numbers for today in the table, then click on that state's profile below to see if any of the profile's peaks match the date numbers in the table.  You'll find it's quite reliable.  International locations will be added.   

The Berg Timer

BT for the next couple months are published here.  I hope this helps out because I know some or you have your own unique uses for it.  The owners of the WEF trading system use it for determining its trading signals.  
Days in red are when BT >= 7 strength.  What a September we had!  Through all that strong BT a deadly hurricane and earthquake.
Things will quiet down here in November.  A less active period in November is welcome.  If planning holiday travel keep in mind the strong BT on December 13.  Flight delays can be expected in the 9 days preceeding and including December 13.  See Airline Travel Delays for the delays profile.

Airline Delays

For airline delays you would check Dallas, New York, and/or Chicago profiles since extreme weather in any of the major hubs will cause delays everywhere.  

But an easier way is to just look at the Airline Delays profile below.  See that Airline Delays peaks during the 9 days prior to when BT is equal to 7 strength or above.  That's a good reason not to fly in the week before and including strong BT, the '0' day.  Four days after strong BT is the lowest delay time period.

Delays data source:  https://www.transtats.bts.gov/ONTIME/Airline.aspx  
Weather data source:  (very accurate) http://www.frontierweather.com/weatherdatastore.html
 
A very good comparison between Airline Delays and U.S. Precipitation.  One indice that is confirmed by another indice is a great thing to see.
If you can arrange it, don't fly in the ten days preceeding a Berg Timer day with strength of 7 or above.
