Why can’t forecasters get weather right?

Dear editor,

Dear editor,

I am not normally a complainer but felt obliged to put pen to paper over the weather, The weather forecast both locally and nationally was completely wrong for Thursday and Friday of last week. It was to be sunny on Thursday morning and to get bad during the day. The exact opposite happened. Friday was supposed to be the worst of the week but was absolutely magnificent in Kilkenny. Surely we can get the weather forecast erifght in this day and age of advanced technology, gizmos, satellites, 3D imaging and space stations. I’m probably getting old but it would never have happened if we still had out own weather station on the Granges road.

Yours etc.

A sunshine reader (Name and address with editor).
