The jet stream largely dictates where, when and how the weather will be. Unfortunately, the jet stream is primarily influenced by the magnetosphere, which in turn is primarily determined by solar flares and their ejecta. The mathematics involved in forecasting the weather is so complex that it requires the most powerful supercomputers to make much sense of it, and that presupposes that the sun does not do anything drastic.

Everything is simple when one knows nothing about the subject.

They missed the #1 classic of all time: "red sky in the morning sailor take warning - red sky at night sailor's delight."

I was a big fan of the moon ring forecast as well.

LOL....There are some actual good tips in here. I'm not here to rip into OL - all in good fun.

But I do have to laugh at the moon one - so a ring means rain 50% of the time? And the other 50%? LOL....flip a coin.

A weather man definitely wrote that one!

Some of these are good tips, but mind yourselves in bad weather. There is never a SURE THING when you are talking about weather. Even the weather man is wrong half of the time!
I have set through some amazing storms out in the woods, to include tornadoes and the tail end of a hurricane... suffice it to say that neither experience was fun. A couple of my buddies have been hit by lightning, ending their careers.
Be careful out there folks. Know your limits and keep appraised of the weather.
