THE INACCURACY OF THE 10-DAY EXTENDED WEATHER FORECAST IS – – –
BE TER PCI ADL = PREDICTABLE
Happy Wednesday everyone! This guy should listen to his wife because she’s 100% correct (aren’t they always??? 😂) According to NOAA.gov, a 5-day forecast can accurately predict the weather about 90% of the time. A 7-day forecast brings the accuracy down to 80%, and a 10-day one is right only about half the time.
No new clue words were in the lineup today. For the second day in a row all of the anagrams happened to be. I’m certain that a shower hands would have us all agreeing that the six-letter ones were more challenging than fives. NSALAD caused me to freeze for a couple of minutes so it’ll be my pick for today’s hardest anagram.
Our cartoon showed us a couple having a conversation about the weather over their morning coffee. The dialogue exchange indicates they having an outing planned for the following weekend and we see him checking the forecast for that particular day on his tablet. He remarks that the website he’s using shows it’ll be sunny, but she rains on his parade by telling him to not get his hopes up as the date is too far out to tell.
Some of Jeff’s gems were the little Jumble “J” logos on their shirts, an “I ❤️ Jumble” logo on his coffee cup and “The Tweedy Show” logo on hers, and my favorite which was the weather forecast on the screen of the tablet which showed the next seven-days as being: sunny, thunderstorms, sunny, partly sunny, rainy, partly cloudy and sunny.
The final solve was an anagram consisting of 11-letters. A bit of an oddity was that one of today’s clue words (PLACID) was scrambled in the last six-letters of the layout! The “ERP” in the middle made PREDICTABLE a breeze to decipher bringing this one to a close. On to tomorrow! Until then, be well and enjoy the day. //Mike
