On Mars you will have direct access to a live up-to-date
weather forecast [your life may depend on it]. Martian weather
forecasting is made possible through the Martian Atmosphere
Reconnaissance Satellite System [MARS System]. The data is
fed into STAN II[State of The Art Neuroputer II], based in
Areopolis, which calculates the weekly, monthly and annual
Martian weather forecasts.
Weather at Areopolis is sunny, no clouds, with a 258°K
(-15°C) daytime and a 210°K (-63°C) nighttime
surface temperature. Temperature is expected to remain stable
the following 10 sols.
Dust content at Areopolis is 20 on the McLewin Scale and
rising. It is Northern Autumn on Mars now so its near perihelion
again. Colonists all over Mars are bracing themselves for
another annual dust storm. The storms increase in strength
each Martian year due to the increasing Martian Terraforming
