Saturday was Opening Day for the local Little League baseball. While watching the “news” Friday night, against my better judgment, I stuck around for the weather report. It looked to me like it was going to rain, but let’s see what the professionals have to say. Now understand that at this point, Saturday morning is less than 8 hours away. I’m not looking for a 10 day forecast (now there is a joke), I just want to know what the weather is going to be eight hours from now.
Saturday – Mostly Sunny with temperatures in the low to mid 50’s
Sunday – Mostly Sunny with a chance of an afternoon shower creeping in
Saturday morning arrives and it is pouring rain and in the 40’s. Well, maybe it will clear up by time….
comes and it is still pouring out and in the 40’s. 150 kids marching in the Opening Day Parade, all soaking wet and shivering. 150 kids standing on the field being introduced to the fans, who are also all soaking wet and shivering. Everyone standing in the rain eating soggy hot dogs and potato chips, while soaking wet and shivering.
Nice job Mr. Meteorologist. Thanks for the help.
