How Reliable Are Rain Forecasts?
The accuracy of rain and weather forecasts depends on how far out meteorologists are trying to predict. It is generally easier to accurately predict rainfall for the next day versus trying to predict rain ten or more days into the future.
Rules of thumb when it comes to forecasting accuracy:
- A next-day forecast can accurately predict rainfall about 90-95 percent of the time
- A five-day forecast can accurately predict rainfall about 80-90 percent of the time
- A seven-day forecast can accurately predict rainfall about 70-80 percent of the time
- A ten-day forecast can accurately predict rainfall about ~50 percent of the time
- Anything longer is really just based on seasonal patterns in your region
