Not very accurate this year

Previously we were able to buy the regional forecast for SW BC for $4.95. I understand there is a new system. Even if it’s the same price I don’t need the entire book, and this year the forecast is not very accurate. Today is the week ending April 7 and we were supposed have sunny and cool weather. Instead in Vancouver it rained every day and only on Friday did the sun peek out for a few hours. Also February had more snow than December. Maybe modeling the weather for the late 1960’s, when the solar minimum was comparable to now, would be helpful.
