Tucson Monsoon Weather – 8/4/2018

Here’s a 2 week view that captures the storms over the last few days as well as the intense heat wave from the start of the 2 week period.  The swing between high and low temperature has flattened out due to the average humidity still being in the 20-30% range,  even when the temperature is peaking up over 100.

Very interesting to note the difference in the humidity peaks (less pointed, a few dips at the top) when the storms are in place.  Not sure if this is sampling the latent presence of clouds?



Baseball Data for Machine Learning

Here’s a dataset that I use to predict player performance for fantasy baseball.  If you’re interested enough, here’s a CoLaboratory program that does the work (you’ll probably need a Google sign-in, but the notebook is public).   The data linked above has already been processed to calculate relative value of the player using SGP.   This is a topic that I’ll probably spend some time discussing in the future.
