Whether or not it's correct?

Weather forecasts for the whole of the UK for the last few months have been 100% incorrect!!!
Invariably, day after day on all media outlets the weather has been described as "unsettled."
Unsettled means liable to change/ not stable/uncertain etc.
But it's rained almost non-stop for weeks on end with no end in sight!
Therefore it has not been liable to change, it has been stable,and it has been certain!
Can we consider this matter as settled?

Re: Whether or not it's correct?

I always smile when a forecaster says it's 'remaining changeable'.

But it will rain "here and there" whilst remaining unsettled "elsewhere"...... pretty accurate, I would say ..... !  Cheesy

We were forecast rain all week but I'm sitting in the car waiting for SWMBO and it is sunny and quite hot Smiley

Currently alternating between hot bright sunshine and black clowds / heavy showers here.
Seems to justify the existance af waterproof suncream.

Still waiting for SWMBO. Car outside temp says 27C! A few dark clouds have appeared occasionally but as I type there are spots of rain on the windscreen. In front of me... Just clear blue sky

It can often depend on where you are, within the distance of a mile or less one person could be in the Sun whilst another is getting a soaking.

We finally made our way home about 20 minutes after my previous post. On the way it chucked it down by the bucket load. By the time we got home it was sunshine again with just a drizzle Cheesy
