Are Weather-forecasts Out Of Touch With Reality?

Mon Aug 20, 2007 8:39 pm

I'm checking the various weather-forecats for Cancun,in order to see if those figures do match the warnings comming from the official storm-warning centers.
For the next two to three days,they forecast "winds of up to 60Km/hour..!!
That's a fraction of the actual thunder-storm violence in the Caribbean islands.How come they are so far from reality ???

Weather forecasts are nothing but horoscopes with numbers.

Since you realized that, I'll leave my original post as is. And yes, pretty ironic.

Recalling that Cancun is here (red spot on the map).....


And noting the latest hurricane force wind projections from the National Hurricane Center.....


.....not that I agree with everything weather forecasters put out, they look to have pretty much nailed this one dead on, seeing as the projected path of the center of Dean looks to pass a good 150-200 miles south of Cancun.
