Lately whenever mine says it will rain, it doesn’t. It has been a very dry couple of months around here.
That’s a remarkable app – mine just gives me probability of rain in a three hour window.
The app said the tornado was only supposed to tear up my neighbor’s house, but it got mine, too.
Well it’s been more than 5 minutes. The weather is bound to be different.
Now JJ’s looking in my window. My water bill is going to be enormous this month.
Weather predictions used to be merely wrong. Now they’re hi-tech wrong. 8^ )
Yeah. "Accu"weather my eye.
No they don’t. In every other panel Janis is gaining 30 lbs then losing 30 lbs.
I prefer to use the government sites, in the hopes that they are more accurate and that they will not sell my information. For radar, I use this: https://radar.weather.gov
For forecasts, I use this: https://www.weather.gov
Yesterday morning, the 14-day forecast said clear and sunny all next week. This morning, it’s overcast all week and rain starting Thursday. Yes, I do live in the Pacific Northwest, why do you ask?
I’ve had it say it wasn’t raining when it was.
Supposed to get a big storm, got about .01" of rain. Was supposed to get a bigger storm, got about .08" of rain. Nothing much mentioned about rain at all, got about .5". Gardener, got a weather station, important to know when to water.
Janis needs a beetle in a matchbox, a flat rock, and a window.
She should have washed her car 15 minutes ago.
Never use a free app. Lots of ads and very inaccurate.
My app just says " look outside".
The classic French expression is “Plus ça change, plus c’est le même chose.” This an ironic comment: when weather forecasts were less reliable, people complained about their inaccuracy all the time—now that they are much more accurate, we can still complain about petty deviations from what’s been foretold.
What is remarkable is that occasionally the NWS gets it right.
but it didn’t say where the rain was gonna be at in 12. that’s the way my app works
I use a trusty “Weather Rope”…..
Chaotic systems like weather do not function off a precise timetable.
Arlo is spot on.
Is anyone else’s PC screen blanketed by ADS that my AdBlocker doesn’t seem able to stop?
