How accurate are weather predictions?The authorities who predict the weather conditions are sometimes deadly accurate. But at times, they are not.
One does not know exactly the scientific basis of their predictions. There is a standing joke in Tamil Nadu. If they predict there will be rain, please go out and do all work, as there will be no rain! If the prediction is that there will be no rain, please do not venture out, as there will be heavy rain!!
Jokes apart, on a scientific basis, how do they predict rain or shine? Do global trends also influence their predictions?
Members who know the scientific basis may please share some details so that we can all understand a little more than what we now know, about weather predictions.
