"The Weatherman Is Not a Moron" might find yourself saying "really???", but Nate Silverman (who is not a meteorologist, by the way), thinks so.  He wrote a long, but interesting, article in today's New York Times to explain why.

The article is about making predictions in general, and in meteorology specifically and is worth the read in my (obviously unbiased by the headline) opinion.  I think the greatest takeaway is that even in today's era of supercomputers and automation, the human element is still critical in producing an accurate forecast or storm warning.
