If 9 of 10 weathermen say it’s likely to rain tomorrow, will you believe it’s likely to rain tomorrow and prepare accordingly?
Out of curiosity, how does one ‘prepare’ for a rainy day? I mean, I don’t own a single coat or umbrella, so what else would there be?
Taking bus/car instead of a bike, if that’s something you would normally do.
Ah, I see. My knees are shot, so it isn’t something normal for me, but point taken. With over 300 sunny days a year, rain isn’t really something I think about much...
It’s not like they have satellites, empirical evidence, and mathematical models to help them make that prediction.
Predicting rain tomorrow versus predicting global catastrophe in 12 years. Epic FAIL!
True; predicting the overall climate years from now is much easier.
Is there a race for the most stupid comments on SOH? Seems many of you lefties are trying to outdo each other.
Weather is sporadic and unpredictable. Climate by contrast behaves in predictable patterns and trends. This isn’t hard.
That’s odd considering how wildly inaccurate the climate models have been.
It’s rain. I look out the window. If it’s raining, I grab my raincoat. If not, no.
It’s never started raining after you left the house?
If the clouds look dark, I might shove my raincoat in my backpack but I have packed a coat and an umbrella, only to have it do nothing.
Similar to how most climatologists and meteorologists believe in anthropogenic climate change.
No, for some reason the weather forecasters in California are almost always wrong in terms of when rain will or will not happen. I can look at the sky and make a better prediction.
Yes, sounds legit
Sure. Now, change that to movie critics and...
You wouldn't call the 10th "rainest"? 😜
Oh whatever 😒
Only if it’s in Az. They are pretty accurate with weather predictions.
Must be an easy job, like in So or Central CA.
"Warm today, with periods of hot. Dry."
No. Weathermen are notoriously inaccurate and the weather is famously unpredictable.
The poll reads “9 out of 10 weathermen”. Only an idiot wouldn’t be prepared.
I've had arguments with my step-daughter. She'll insist it won't rain because the weather app doesn't say rain for the day.
But putting your hand outside... 💦 💦💦
I feel like this is a trap.
My answer is “yes”. I would prepare.
Some users believe it’s no more reasonable to put your faith into the 9 weathermen than it is to trust the one outlier. Just curious how widespread this kind of thinking this.
I mean, if that one weatherman has the best track record of all of them, I would trust him.
