I have been pondering for some time what job I could do which would allow you to occasionally get things wrong and it not really affect what the end result is. Well today, I realised that there is a job out there for us - Weather forecaster !
Its the perfect job for us, we can stand in front of the camera, grin and make out that we know what we are talking about, flail our arms in the air and then if we don't get it right we can have another go again tomorrow, Perfect.
And of course we don't have to be that specific either. This is the actual long range forecast from the Met Office for April - complete with a typo
UK Outlook for Wednesday 13 Apr 2016 to Wednesday 27 Apr 2016:
Through the rest of April the weather is very uncertaint. However it is more likely to be changeable with a mixture of sunny spells and showers, or longer spells of rain. However some longer drier spells are also likely.
See, its easy we can all do it. All the forecasters need to know are a few basic things:
Weather changes (really)
We will have some days with sun and some with rain (Well we don't live in the desert or the rain forest)
There may be days when we have two dry days together or two wet days together. (Wonder if you can get odds at the bookies for that in April!)
And since its April, forecasting showers isn't beyond a six year old.
