I don't think they can forecast the weather a few days ahead very acurately. That is what I have noticed recently.

The wind they are good with, but forecasting sunshine is another matter.

Indeed - hopefully it'll be good on Sunday and Monday too, as the tides are perfect on the east coast then

Agreed, they don't always get it right but one encouraging thing is that they haven't forecast a prolonged sunny period all summer yet, but they did forecast most of the rain and were right about that for sure
