I’ve not taken the time to research it, but I suspect summer time leads to poorer short term weather forecasts, the reason being we get the evening model guidance an hour later. This means forecasters like me cannot see all the latest data before the 10/11 PM newscasts, but that said, I’ll let John Oliver at HBO make my case this year, as he does it much better than I could.
