Why oh why are weather forecasts so often wrong? With all the millions of pounds worth of computer power and other investment thats gone into improving the weather service I'm amazed at just how often they get it wrong.
Saturday evening they were predicting a cloudy start to Sunday with some showers early on but then sunny intervals and temp max up to 28 degrees C.
We woke yesterday morning to heavily overcast with continuous driving rain and squalls and the radio was still sticking to its guns re the earlier forecast. By 10:30 am the rain had finally stopped but it was gusting very strong. Did get some brighter weather later but never anywhere near 28C.
You'd think they might look out of the window occasionally and realise 'summat is oop' as Haydn might say.
I've got a theory......if they told us everyday was going to be awful theyd improve their accuracy considerably and, when the weather was good we'd be glad they got it wrong.....Michael Fish....more like Michael Tosh if you ask me....sorry Michael, but I have to tell it like it is..........[img]/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
