Met Office - Crap Forecasts Not "Wrong"
The Met Office has admitted issuing advice to government that was "not helpful" during last year's remarkable switch in weather patterns.
Between March and April 2012, the UK experienced an extraordinary shift from high pressure and drought to low pressure and downpours.
But the Met Office said the forecast for average rainfall "slightly" favoured drier than average conditions.
...the Met Office chief scientist Julia Slingo.....says last year's calculations were not actually wrong because they were probabilistic.
