Excel Grid for Your
Weather Observations

By marking the day's actual weather on a printed weather score with the colors of the elements, you can easily find what caused the weather from the lower lines. So you will gradually learn to predict the weather on your own locality. You can make your markings on the earth row at the top of the score.
Alternatively you can use a separate Excel or Open Office grid, which can be narrowed on the opened weather score.

If the day represents one particular element type, the day's square could be completely colored with the color of that element.

Usually, however, the day's weather is composed of many different element effects and you can devise a marking language for these elements. In this case it is not about absolute values but, on the contrary, comparatives - the change of an effect compared with the previous day or the previous hours, for example whether it is cloudier or brighter.

If the morning was sunny and the afternoon was rainy, half of the square could be colored with yellow, the cloudy part with light blue and the rainy part with a darker blue.

The day's temperature can be marked with red stripes at the bottom of the square. There is no need for mathematical accuracy when making the marks, but simply compare the days in relation to each other. Warmer - redder, colder - less red, cloudier - lighter blue, etc. This is enough for finding reasons for the weather changes in the weather score, and at the same time to detect the regularities.

The windiness and chilliness of element earth can likewise be marked with violet stripes at the bottom of the square and the sunny or cloudy part with yellow or blue stripes at the top of the square.

If there has been an extremely cold night between two days - for example frost - mark a vertical dark blue stripe between the days. A longer period of extreme cold can be marked also as a dark blue stripe to the bottom of the row.

The main point is, that you yourself know what you mean with your markings, so that later you can read your weather observations from them.

Comparing your own marks to the other marks in the score (note also the distant celestial bodies in the lowest part of the score), usually gives you insights and understandings, and gradually you can learn to predict your own locality's weather behavior by reviewing the scores. This is exactly the purpose of the weather scores.

If you observe the weather in two different localities, mark these observations in two different rows or in two different scores and also mark the name of the locality on them.

NOTE! Mark only the weather that you really know happened on those days. Do not invent anything based on vague memories because those marks will have no value. If you do not remember what the weather was like on one of these days, then do not mark anything. It does not matter if there is a gap in the markings.

Note further: You can learn to make dependable forecasts from the weather scores only after you have made enough observations and accumulated enough experience. Be prepared for surprises. There are many things we do not know yet, so we do not recommend betting on the weather scores.

NOTE! Quintile72.net does not accept any responsibility for decisions or solutions that have been made on the basis of the weather scores, diagrams or texts. Everybody makes decisions on their own responsibility.

Although we exercise the greatest care, there may be some unintentional errors or inaccuracies. We do not accept any responsibility even for those.

We gladly accept feedback about any possible inaccuracies.

Printing instruction: Activate by painting blue the whole weather score, then select (File>Print>Properties>Page Setup) the paper orientation Landscape, and print the 'Selection'.
