Just won a tenner on it.
Might go buy some more crisps inabit.
what if it just drizzles? Is there a selection of places or can you just pick any tiny village?
and its a grid where you choose a couple of spots. Apparently they've already had to shell out like a million smackers.
I doubt there are weather stations in every place you can choose though, so they probably just take the station nearest to the grid square you've chosen and see if there's been over 1mm of precip there.
No idea what that is.
I just went on the met ofice site, used their rainfall prediction thing, and picked somewhere in the middle of a big blue/green bit.
Gonna wait til Wednesday gets put up later tonight and put a few more on somewhere.
where it rains 'next'? Do they do a cut-off point once a week or something?
You get to pick a grid spot and a time (morning, afternoon, evening) any day up to 3 days away, only 1 person per grid spot though.
that's clear! On the advert it says 'guess where it's going to rain next' which is so vague it baffled me.
The rain radar estimates rainfall by measuring reflectivity from the clouds. Here the latest readings:
Surprised it's not based on actual measurements but there you go.
Today has been the 5th consecutive wet day.
It rains all the time, they must've lost so much money!?
But the smaller packs gon their own get you one.
I'm considering just going and buying about 10 packets of crisps, I think that'd be worth it, I'd probably make a decent profit to be honest.
