  1. Bad forecasting by the meteorological department as the day turned out to be bright and sunny.

    What is worse, unlike yesterday, the met office weather which had claimed that there could be rain or snow over the next three days today has retracted saying the it would remain dry during the period.

  2. says: Rajneesh Sharma

    Meteorological department officers should consult good astrologers, at least they are better in predictions….lols.. most of time their (Meteorological department) forecasts look like guesswork..by looking at evening skies they deliver statements for morning and next day everything gets entirely opposite to what they claim.
