GUEST,banjoman BS: Long Range Weather Forcasting (27) RE: BS: Long Range Weather Forcasting 11 Jan 10

In the 1960's I worked in the Met Office and since have kept up an interest in the weather forecasts. It was obvious then, and still is, that moost of the general public hear what they want to hear in those forecasts. This situation is not helped by silly headlines in the press. Yes, weather forecasting is an inexact science and relies heavily on interpretation of observed phenonemna and local topography. It would probably benefit everyone if some thought were given to educating people into listening properly.
Its also worth mentioning that lots of the old wives tales (red sky at night) do have a lot of credence in science. (explanations if requested)
