New conspiracy theory – Met office Weather forecasts

unnamed

OK, the only Weather-related conspiracy theory being cited currently (google search) is . . . .
<<  HERE  >>

So, here’s mine.

I’ve noticed just how wrong a forecast can be for some months now.  I mean, OK, we all have – but it’s the way they’re wrong.

You can accept half-a-day either way.  We live on an island, and our weather is predominantly from the West, across the Atlantic.  Stuff happens, things change, ‘it’s not a precise science’ etc etc – we know all this.

No, it’s much more subtle than that.

In a heat-wave that spans the working-week, we are NEVER told if it’s due to break-down by the weekend.

Twice now this year, forecasters have either:

  • Completely failed to mention the weekend.
  • Talked about Saturday ONLY,
    and then fleetingly, and in fantastically general terms.
  • Focussed on one or two areas of the country only.
  • Made some loose non-statement that covers every eventuality.
  • Had the radio’s previous content overrun slightly – so as to cause a rushed weather report before the news or time-signal (Radio 4)

So?   The conspiracy then.

met

I think, the Met’ Office and/or the BBC are under instruction not to tell the public that the sweltering week they’ve just worked through is going to end in a dismal weekend.

 

I think it’s down to lost work-days, ‘sickies’, and public morale.

It has happened too many times for it to be a mistake.
