I know I may be a little harsh to say that the Weather Network Sucks ... but it sure as hell does suck!
I left the home to do my grocery shopping this afternoon. However, prior to leaving I paid close attention to the day's forecast on the weather channel. They clearly forecast 0% precipitation for this afternoon and this evening. As there was ZERO chance of it raining, I took the pickup truck. Upon leaving the grocery store, it was a little cloudy, but not raining, and recalling that there was no chance for rain, I placed the grocery bags in the bed of the truck. Sure enough, five minutes after I left the Loblaw's parking lot, it had started raining. After I got home some 20/25 minutes later, the bags were all soaked.
I am not a weather forecaster nor am I familiar with the science that supports it. However, to forecast NO RAIN with a zero percent probability, and it poured this afternoon, then I wonder how these folks could still be in business. Had they forecast 20% or even a 10% chance for rain, I would have accepted their forecast, but now it appears they have no credibility as this is inexcusable. I wish we could somehow sue them for forecasting the wrong weather.
I really feel for the folks out there who were doing major renovation work around their homes (based on the no rain forecast), such as repaving the driveway or redoing the shingles on the roof. They probably would like to have the option to sue as they surely are not responsible for any additional costs added to their project due to the rain which was not forecast. All they can do is try and get reimbursed by their home insurance which will ultimately go up.
