Weather or not
I don't blame the forecasters - I use the BBC out here just like I did back in the UK - I blame the British Isles and their unfortunate location, wedged as they are between the stormy Atlantic and the freezing Arctic. And they're small as well. No matter what direction it's coming from, weather barely has time to get up and running before it's gone and the next lot is on its way. Over here we have lazy weather. Once it's here, it really can't be bothered to go anywhere else and is happy to sit around doing nothing until some much bigger bit of weather (generally a thunderstorm) comes alone and pushes it off the sofa.
