I’m listening to the radio and the presenter, earlier in the show, said that the weather was going to be mixed, with some rain and possibly some sunshine later.  Since then he’s been bombarded with tweets along the lines of “it’s raining in Lincoln, isn’t that where they’re meant to be based”, “dunno what window he’s looking out of, it’s raining here” and similar.  Is that what these people are thinking “it’s raining now, it’ll rain forevar….”

He has resorted to saying “I know it’s not sunny NOW, it’s called a FORECAST.  If you want to know what it’s like now you can just look out the window.”
