How Accurate Are The Weathermen?

How Accurate Are The Weathermen on T.V.?

Have you ever gone outside inappropriately dressed for the weather because a weatherman said it was supposed to be 80 degrees and it was 60 degrees? I have, but weathermen are not to blame. For the most part they are 80-90% accurate with their predictions. But like I said they’re PREDICTIONS not a 100% guarantee. As the weather is forever changing, meteorologists use high technology such as dopplar radar, satellite pictures, barometers and other technology to predict weather. They can never be exact because weather is not an exact science. So I took my experiment outside and i measured the humidity, wind, and temperature then I looked up a few weather stations around the Twin Cities to see whose predictions were closest to the predictions I got. They were all similar about 80 degrees and partly cloudy(which it was outside).With humidity 35-40%. The only thing very different was the wind. I got 1mph and the weather stations got 10mph.
