Why I'm going to miss California...

The clip had been up for several years when I met her, but the irony still stood true: the forecast bent over backward to use varied euphemisms for “it’ll be sunny most of the day”, and, the forecast was correct about 80-90% of the time.

As I started contemplating the big change that was coming, I started peaking at the weather a little more often than I had. Sure enough, even the online electronic forecasts have this problem. Here are two clippings from weather.com across the last two months:
