More than one-third of American adults don’t have the knowledge needed to be an accurate weather forecaster, according to a new survey.
A new survey of more than 1,200 adults found that almost one-fifth (22 percent) lacked basic meteorological knowledge, such as understanding the weather system and the location of weather stations.
The survey also found that most Americans do not have the skills to conduct a weather forecast.
More than half (53 percent) said they didn’t know how to conduct weather forecasts for the current or future.
