Re: Long Range Forecasts
Message from Sam TN
I'm not going into anything much more in meteorology, but I'll at least say this:
My mother is a very sick woman and medical science can't answer what's wrong. My father is also very ill and he can't get answers. Yet bills keep rolling in and these doctors keep their titles and degrees. Charlatans exist everywhere. But what is a charlatan exactly? Where does one draw the line? Sometimes science doesn't have all the answers, but we do the best with what we have. Although I disagree with your despondent feelings about LR forecasting a bit, because I feel we DO have a decent handle on what is going to happen. It's the shortrange I'm more bothered by. Missing forecasts at night by 5-8F, rain, when it's sunny, etc. Perspective Tom...
