WHAT IS IT? It's the astronomer's forecast. At a glance, it shows when it will be cloudy or clear for up to the next two days. It's a prediction of when Lancaster, CA, will have good weather for astronomical observing. The forecast data comes from those very cool guys at the Canadian Meteorological Center. CMC's numerical weather forecasts are unique because they are specifically designed for astronomers. But they have 763 forecast maps. It can be a chore to find the one you want. "Attilla Danko" wrote a script to generate the images like the one below which summarizes CMC's forecast images just for Lancaster and the surroundings out to about 10 miles. There are charts for 3905 locations.
