I really admire the people who forecast the weather. However, they don’t always get it right. Take this past weekend where we were supposed to get rained on all day Sunday, but the opposite was welcomed by everyone except the plants in the garden. Monday rolled around and instead of the steady rays of sunshine, as of this writing, it is overcast and ominous. How nice it must be to go to work and be wrong on any number of occasions. Weather forecasting is not an exact science, despite the amount of science that goes into it. Imagine going to work and being rewarded for being wrong. For the most part, the 24 – 48-hour forecast is fairly accurate. Beyond that, it can be a bit of a guessing game, albeit by bright scientists trained in meteorology. And, let’s be honest who knows for sure what that even means? Accurate forecasts and traffic information are the hallmarks of any good “drive time” radio show and on 107.7 Pulse FM we strive to provide you with just that each and every day. Meanwhile, we enjoy the lush greens and the variety of colours we are blessed with over these early days of spring. We all know the best is yet to come. That said, my great old mother is known to share sage advise when it comes to our weather — there’s nothing we can do about it so we may as well learn to live with it. More on our South Of The Fraser weather tomorrow morning with Meteorologist Cindy Yu from Environment Canada.
