Australian meteorologists have a lot of trouble predicting our weather. We were amazed when we visited the UK in the nineties that the forecasters could predict the weather to the hour and they would be correct. That never happened in Australia then, or now.
Yesterday for example I received 27 SMS messages that severe thunderstorms with damaging hail were predicted by….. Certainly as can be seen from the sky there was a possibility but we neither got rain, hail nor any thunder and lightning. I go onto hyper alert if a storm is possible, particularly if I’m driving.
Tonight, as I was travelling to dog training I had to smile. The weather report followed the news. That was not surprising in itself but the forecaster stated “It is raining unless you put your head out the window and see the sun shining.” I wonder if he’ll have a job tomorrow but he certainly brightened my day.
