Do you believe in weather forecast? Do you watch it on TV every day?

Actually I don't trust the weather forecast so much because it lack of accuracy. Though it is the highest audience rate program in China according the statistic. After all weather condition is associated with our work and life so much. Also it is a must-seen program for my father, and he must watch it from the certain channel on TV, though there is nearly not any differences between channels. He never believe in weather from other ways such as Internet or cellphone. At first, I don't understand it. Now I realize it's just his special habit, everyone got his own special habit, we just respect it.

I watch weather forecast most every day,on TV or internet. of course, weather forecasts are not always right. I know a number of factors determine the weather of future, such as temperature,moisure,wind velocity and barometric pressure. but i feel the short-term weather forecast are accurate comparatively. At least i can chose the dress according to the temperature forecasted~~~

You are right, that is why the weather forecast is the most pupular program in China.

I try and look at the forecast before I go to bed at night so I have an idea of what to expect the next day. I will check it more often if we are expecting some type of storm so that I know what is going on and what they think will happen so I can be prepared for it. I know that they are not always right but most of the time they are pretty close.

hi, man, I'm from Shenyang, Liaoning. These days , due to the climate change, I do watch it a lot. mainly learn it from my parents, they learn it from the local papers or TV broadcast. For those extreme weather, the authorities predict quite accurately.

I make sure i watch the weather at least once a day. I always like to know what the weather is going to be like. That way I can plan my day accordingly. I will know what to wear and know how to dress my children. I know that weather forcasting isn't one hundred percent accurate but it gives me a pretty good idea.
