Oh those long-range forecasts!

No offense taken...I dislike long range forecasts. Luckily my current shop loves a 24 hour forecast with little emphasis on the 5day. I think the long range ranks up there as #2 weatherperson pet peeve...right behind #1 having a meteorologist double as a reporter. Weatherpeople should stick to weather. We struggle enough with just that...ha!

Further thoughts on "long-range forecasts"

Re: the item below on long-range forecasts. Most meteorologists I've worked with hated doing long-range forecasts because they know how unreliable they are. But the public loves them, accurate or not. Same reason they read horoscopes, I presume.
