f(x) = weather.dt

We went to a kids birthday party over the weekend (sat) and so i checked out the weather on the BBC. Sure enough, it said rain until around 4, which amde everyone change their plans from outdoors to pretty much indoors. So come 1pm, then 2, 3, 4 there was no sign of rain. Sure enough, no rain all day.

Checked the BBC and sure enough, it was changed to "sunny".

Now, on that principle could we not all start some community retrospective weather service and just charge less than whoever gives the BBC their data and make a bit of cash?

I have came to the conclusion over the past few months that they really have no clue what the weather is going to be (you start to notice this more when you have kids and when you go up mountains!). The best solution is to just open your window, look up and decide for yourself, or, if in Scotland pack a suitcase with something for each season.
