Why most weather predictions are bullsh!t

Science Rate this link: 1 stars 2 stars 3 stars 4 stars 5 stars
This article is a great summary of why most weather predictions are completely wrong. Case in point is this little gem:

..stations get their precipitation predictions correct about 85 percent of the time one day out and decline to about 73 percent seven days out.

On the surface, that would not seem too bad. But consider that if a meteorologist always predicted that it would never rain, they would be right 86.3 percent of the time.


Basically, most of the time, you're better off assuming it won't rain than ever listening to a weatherman.
