I have a difficult time translating the weather forecasters here in New England. Let me demonstrate what I mean.
A chance of showers and thunderstorms before 2pm, then showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm between 2pm and 3pm, then a chance of showers and thunderstorms after 3pm. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 80. South wind 5 to 7 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
A chance of showers and thunderstorms before 1am, then a slight chance of showers between 1am and 2am. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain. Patchy fog after 11pm. Otherwise, mostly cloudy, with a low around 70. Southwest wind 3 to 5 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
I translate that to say it gonna rain, then it’s gonna rain some more and finally it’s gonna rain again, all in a row. Why don’t they just say it’s going to rain all day today? LOL
