Those darn computer models!

Heh. I remember being taught about those paste-on low and high systems that meteorology used to be about, and how to interpret those now-fossilized NOAA maps. I think of myself as pretty jaded, but even I have to be impressed, sometimes, at the difference a couple of decades makes, knowing that forecasters like yourself are now using the equivalent of a building full of mathematicians to predict a few days out.

Of course, then that darn butterfly in Japan flaps his wings again...and there's probably an occasional round-off error in the software...
