    You're on to something -- how else could they look so ridiculously cheerful during the broadcasts..?

    I wonder how they are taught in school how to use key words - like

    • probability
    • chance of
    • scattered
    • mostly
    • isolated
    • partly cloudy
    • thunderstorms developing
    • few showers
    • steady rain
    • soaking rain
    • evolving into
    • rain showers
    • flurries
    • mix of
    • possible
    • early
    • AM
    • PM
    • overnight
    • developing
    • times of
    • abundant
    • 80%
    • times of
    • a stray thunderstorm
    • mainly

    What is the difference between scattered thunderstorms and ones that are isolated? Is that different from having some stray thunderstorms wandering around?

    These words were grabbed off real forecasts for 4 different locations. Well, they are mostly different. They are mainly in isolated states with a stray neighbor. Please note that the accuracy of these statements are approximately 2%.

    At this point in the month we have had only 4 days with low temperature below freezing. And we are looking for snow? It is 48 degrees now and will be warm for a few days with rain.

    I have planned a trip based on my guess Oct 9. Going up Oct 11th and 12th. Wouldn't it be nice.

    What are the chances that the entire list gets used up and no snow flies on the summit? What happens next?

    As the original rules state - it is the closest to actual date. So, KD wins.
