Weather or not

Post by The Real Louis on Thu Sep 18, 2014 11:52 am

The Question Master here again - I've never been quite sure whether the weather reports in the Newspaper refer to the month just gone, or are a forecast for the month coming. (The latter would be really helpful!) Anyone got any strong or soild views?

month just gone. They're there to partially explain why your fleets didn't make as much progress or whatever as you thought.

Shame - a forecast would be so much more useful!

Agree, though in some cases you can forecast yourself because weather is somewhat seasonal after all.

I just know this because I had a fleet becalmed which didn't get where I wanted it to go when I wanted it to get there!

Don't mind becalmed - it's loss to storms that I worry about!

Until the ship you are on runs out of fresh food and water
