How do forecasts affect you guys? Can you gauge, based on forecasts, whether or not to go fishing? It's become confusing down here, where once you could bet on it. While there are many internet options available, all purport to get their info via BoM. It should therefore be fairly accurate. Down here, it's often a total opposite. At time SE winds are forecast. These come in off the sea and are not so good, and SW winds can make the lake rather unpleasant. It's better to stay home. Then the days turn out sunny, with light to calm winds, meaning perfect conditions. Locally, yesterday, we were told of 100% certainty of a minimum of 100mm of rain. We got half that amount. It also predicted winds of 75km/h during the afternoon. At nearby Moruya airport, where the weather station is sited, it recorded 35km/h, and here would have been lucky to reach 15km/h. Apart from the rain, the lake would have been in good condition. There are hundreds of similar examples; these are only a small sample. How do you find it?
