So this is a two part post, hopefully someone out there with Knowledge: Meterology can help me a bit with one or both! :)
Firstly, I am trying to determine what the weather patterns are for Brevoy, Varnhold and the Stolen Lands. In other words, what are the normal flows of warm and cold air coming from and going to, where are storms likely to form, etc. If anyone knows of any canon info on this or has meteorological knowledge and has mapped these for themselves, help would be greatly appreciated.
Secondly, I would appreciate either some correction or fine tuning of the weather patterns I invented and have been using. I have cold air coming down from the Lake of Mists and Veils, in a steep south easterly direction, then sweeping east over the southern Icerime, Restov, and Dunsward. Then I have warm air coming up from the direction of the River Kingdoms, going further north than normal due to the Hooktongue.
These flows cause lake effect type snow up north quite bit, bring a fair number of storms to southern Brevoy and Stolen Lands, and quite a bit of regular precipitation. This also causes an occasional big storm to swing down into my players' kingdom.
Is this weather pattern making any sense based on "real world" meterology or am I completely living in a fantasy world? :)
How are other GMs handling weather? It is sort of important to get this at least sort of right, since I have an A-R druid, and environmental engineer, and an archaeologist in my group. I already got the third degree about the directions all the rivers flow, etc etc. and I am looking to avoid that when they get around to analyzing the weather.
