Met Office simplifying weather forecasts

Hmmm. I’m not sure about this one. Apparently the Met Office are going to Simplify Weather Forecasts. I think I’ll just let the last paragraph from the article sum it up:

…we have to wonder how much spin can possibly be put on the weather, or how useful it might be.

For one thing, a forecast is just that: a calculated best guess about what the weather is most likely to do. For another, the forecast has absolutely no bearing on what the weather actually does. And finally, when was the last time you looked at a miserable weather forecast and decided that that kind of weather was not for you, and that you’d go with the competitor’s brand instead?
