ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Weather forecasters never get it right.
A little late.
Well, it’s not the end of the world.
I know local news has a pretty loose relationship with facts and math, but seriously, how can someone who calls themselves a meteorologist screw up a simple Fahrenheit to Celsius conversion?
For reference 1250F is roughly 667C, still plenty hot, but nowhere near 1147C.
Those aren’t F and C, those are high and low. (None of the other days’ number pairs convert correctly when interpreted as F and C either.)
They call themselves meteorologists? They didn’t even get the meteors right.
Still cooler than Tucson on a bad day.
This might have been mildly amusing if I hadn’t already seen it posted in several different versions elevnty dozen times on Facebook…last week.
What is eleventy dozen in Celsius?
About eleventy five.
That’s hilarious but it keeps their perfect record of being perfectly wrong intact.
This one was better.
cloudy with a chance of meatballs?
I also liked the Galactus one.
