Keeping a Weather Eye Out?

Not. Forecast for tonight: A chance of rain and snow after 11pm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 26. South wind between 16 and 21 mph, with gusts as high as 32 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%. Total nighttime snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

Current temperature: 20.

Ummm... yeah. Sure. Now, if it said the "low after midnight," I might believe it. Judging by the wind and the forecast for tomorrow, there's a warm front moving in.

If predicted_low>current_temp ...

(it would need a time stamp, too, of course)
