according to the LJW there have been a threat of thunderstorms for the last two months. the sun comes out and it is 90 degrees, why should this threat be any different? You can only cry wolf so many times before people begin to believe there is no wolf.

"according to the LJW there have been a threat of thunderstorms for the last two months."

This demonstrates that you are unable to conceptualize a weather forecast and shouldn't bother with them

BTW, got your windows rolled up?

I go with the approach "I'll believe it when I see it." Most of these weathercasters can't forecast themselves out of a wet paper sack. Gary Leezak of KSHB in Kansas City is another example. On his blog, he said ( 2 weeks ago) we'd be going into a wet, floodlike weather pattern. Not sure about KC, but around Lawrence it's been pretty dry the past 2 weeks.

Interestingly, the only forecaster I've come to trust is Mike Thompson on Fox 4. He has a common sense, conservative approach. He uses his head. He doesn't sensationalize it and get people worked up over nothing. He's pretty darn accurate!!
