Cold Bias

Message from Tom in Philadelphia

I heard the GFS does have a cold bias. No wonder, as it seems the vast majority of meteorologists I knew in college were hard core cold lovers. Not that they intentionally put in a cold bias into the model lol. I don't think people that like mild weather are attracted to meteo like the Joe Bastardi types.

He is a hoot by the way. Now he is slagging off the Euro because it is not showing enough cold this winter for him. Has any major weather outlets or scientists called him out on his wacky bias?

I just wish NOAA would get its act together and straighten out the model to at least compete better with the Euro. It is an embarrassment that the GFS is so bad in comparison. Is it that they don't spend as much money as the Europeans on models?
