Partly Thundery

The weather forecasts here crack me up. I often hear "showery" as a forecast word, and did even hear "thundery" one day, although I did not subsequently hear thunder. Almost all forecasts are sentences long that all pretty much describe the same weather. I wonder if there's a class in university on writing weather forecast copy.

Here's tomorrow's forecast:
"Dry and bright. But there will be a fair amount of clouds at times, meaning that any sunny spells are likely to be short-lived."
