Weather Forecasts

Is it me or does it seem the more technology, gadgets and gewgaws the weather people on TV have at their disposal the less accurate their forecasts?

Seriously, I can’t count the number of times they’ve used their super-duper ‘future track’ to show rain directly over our area only to have it be sunny all day long and vice versa, predictions of clear, wonderful days often result in downpours and severe weather.

Twenty years ago they’d cut to the weather man, he’d say “Yup, it’s going to rain tomorrow.” and more often than not, it rained. Sure, weather’s unpredictable but they used to, as far as I can see, have a much higher accuracy when they didn’t have multi-million dollar computers to tell them what they weather was going to do.

Yours, wishing for rain,

Hawk
