"The difference between 'climate' and 'weather' is 'climate is what you expect; weather is what you get.'"
What I hate is when I plan my day based on the forecast and it turns out to be totally different. Here's an example ... At 9am on Sunday morning the local news channel's weather man (Jim Donavan on KGW, Portland) said that rain was on its way but wouldn't arrive until 4pm at the absolute soonest, and would more likely not get here until 6pm -- and even then it would only be a few sprinkles.
At noon I was riding in a downpour.
"They can't forecast their way out of a wet paper bag." I've heard that the Pacific Northwest in spring time is the most difficult time/place to forecast in the lower 48 states.
