    In other words, they haven’t a clue.

      Meteorologists are a lot like political pollsters and commentators. They get to keep their job even if they are wrong most of the time.

        Agent, when you see the weather forecast and it has a picture of clowds & rain, calls for rain, and says 50%, what does that mean?

          It means to plan for just the opposite. Then, they say there is a 50% chance for a week from next Tuesday. They actually say that with a sheepish grin on their face. All guess work and wrong so often.

            There is no such thing as an exact opposite to a 50% chance of rain. It means on days with the same weather conditions it rains 50% of the time.

            On every single topic you are outright ignorant, it’s incredible someone can know so little about everything. But of course that explains why you think the Farmers Almanac is a great source of forecasting.

            I’d say the opposite of a 50% chance of rain is that the chance is BIASED to one side; i.e. greater chance of rain than not… or lesser chance of rain than not.

            What does ‘calls for rain’ mean? Is that consistent with a 50% chance of rain?

            What are ‘clowds’?

            Someone needs to spell check and logic check your posts before you hit the ‘post comment’ button. Ask for help next time, so we don’t make the mistake of following you down another one of your rabbit holes.

            “I’d say the opposite of a 50% chance of rain is that the chance is BIASED to one side; i.e. greater chance of rain than not… or lesser chance of rain than not.”

            Well that’s stupid, and wrong, obviously. But you have a degree in statistics. Clown. Yeah, the hypothetical forecast, by an unnamed group is declared biased without looking into it. Kick rocks, genius.

            “Clowds” is a typo, clearly.

            What does “calls for rain” mean?

            I’ll say 50% is also a typo. We’re back to square one. Your turn to lead the discussion down another rabbit hole.

            “What does “calls for rain” mean?”

            As I’ve said before I will not teach you to read, but if you want I can point you towards resources for illiteracy.

            “I’ll say 50% is also a typo.”

            That’s stupid. You don’t know statistics, you are even less knowledgeable tgan Agent. The dumbest person I’ve ever encountered. If you don’t have anything to contribute, leave. Oh, you can’t, because you have no place to go where you’re BS will be embraced. Sad.

            Final chance: what does “calls for rain” mean?
