A retired Walsall man who is an amateur weather forecaster predicts that it will rain for the next two weeks.
Bill Watson, 68, has astonished neighbours with the accuracy of his forecasts over past weeks. ‘Bill’s amazing,’ said neighbour Janice Wilson, 76. ‘I rely on his forecasts now. He’s better than the BBC’s forecasters who just keep saying it’ll rain.’
Mr Watson says he uses traditional methods of reading the weather ‘such as looking out of the window of my bungalow’.
Mr Watson first came to prominence as a forecaster when he correctly forecast sub-zero temperatures for the Arctic Circle.
