The Weather Page

November 27, 2006|By FRANK ROYLANCE | FRANK ROYLANCE,Sun Reporter -- Weather Blogger

Roger Bowman, up in Aberdeen, takes pen to paper to propose additions to our Weather Page, including forecasts for Bangor, Maine., so that "when we HERE see snow THERE, we feel lucky." I like the way you think, Rog. He also asks my opinion of the Hagers-town Almanack's weather prognosticator. They call him a "conjecturer." Conjecture means "guesswork." Forecasting daily weather five to 17 months in advance is fun, but it's voodoo. Sometimes the conjecturer is right; but so is a stopped clock.
