In most jobs, accuracy is a key benchmark for keeping your job. If you are wrong 90% of the time, odds are you will be joining the legions of the unemployed.

As far as “sciences” go, meteorology’s closest cousin is astrology (though horoscopes are usually more on point).

But a forecaster is not immune to the chopping block. As this one from upstate New York learned, a meteorologist’s job is really just to smile, stand in front of a map, and not yell a string of profanities.

(Fortunately for Bill O’Reilly, he’s not a weatherman…)
