Make fun of the weatherman if you feel like it, but a new report from ForecastWatch finds they're actually getting better at forecasting the weather. The data shows meteorologists are now as good with their five-day forecasts as they were with their three-day forecasts in 2005. Both government and private weather forecasting firms are nearing the point where they get tomorrow's high temperature right nearly 80 percent of the time. Eleven years ago they got it right just 66 percent of the time. It's improved to the point where Major League Baseball now moves games around based on forecasts. The improvement is thanks to more observations taken in the air and oceans, a better understand of how weather works, and most importantly, bigger and faster computers that put all that information together into complex models that simulate weather
