    Default Auckland's Weather Forecasts

    What happen to the weather forecasts for Auckland lately? It was 'supposed' to rain, thunder storm,etc. for the past couple of days but turned out to be hot and sunny! Computer malfunctioned, or what?

    I think they've just given up predicting. They just pull it out of a hat and then when it inevitably is wrong, they just say "meh" and go back to the hat.
    All the technology and software in the universe is useless when the end user has the IQ of a sack of hammers.

    They can't even report the weather correctly, but the forecasts are still main contenders for the Booker prize.

    In this regard at least, Auckland is firmly aligned with the rest of the country.

    A similar thing for Tauranga. We seem to be having a lot of very dry rain or showers here.

    Perhaps we are getting biblical forecasts? Beware of false prophets.
