Yesterday, the ABC News website weather report was showing a 70% chance for between 0 and 3 mm of rain in Mt Sheridan.
When our scientifically calibrated Peters Ice Cream bucket was full with some 125mm of rain, I placed another plastic pot on the path to the pool last night, and I measured some 150mm init before I emptied both of them this afternoon.
So a mere 225mm in 24 hours, or what the locals call a light shower.
However, there is now a dire warning on the ABC News website regarding the latest forecast from BOM.
So between the ABC News website and the BOM, we have gone from 0 to 3mm yesterday to 'The Great Deluge" after the event.
My sister says that weather forecasters were only ever created to try to make financial forecasters look good.
