Fourth of July Weather Forecast
It’s the 4th of July!!! Aren’t you glad our Founding Fathers didn’t declare America’s independence in the middle of the winter? Just one more reason why we live in the greatest nation on earth! Here’s today’s weather forecast for Lake Allatoona: • Some clouds with the possibility of an isolated thunderstorm this afternoon. (Sure, there is also a possibility of an alien spaceship landing on your mother-in-law’s nose, but that is less likely.) • Hot, with a high around 96 F (because 96 C would be 205 F). • Winds W at 5 to 10 mph. • Chance of rain 30%. Do you know what that 30% chance of rain means? No, it doesn’t mean that rain will fall on 30% of the region. A 30% chance of rain means that — under similar weather conditions — 30% of the time it will rain. A 75% chance of rain means that — under similar weather conditions — it will rain 75% of the time. A 100% chance of rain means that — under similar weather conditions — it probably won’t rain at all because God loves to mess with the minds of arrogant weather forecasters.
