Actually, in the SF Bay Area, the say is: "If you don't like the weather,
just drive 5 miles." [That's what I meant by "microclimates".]

And as far as meteorologists go, the ones here do o.k., really, given
that they're trying to predict a half-dozen different microclimates
within a span of a few dozen miles. If you separate the weather reports
into subclasses of "coast", "Peninsula", "South Bay", "East Bay",
"Napa Valley" (or "wine country"), "further inland", and "Central
Valley" and look at their accuracy of any single subclass, they're
generally pretty good (or at least as good as most other places).
It only *looks* vague & shotgun-like if you try to read the forecast
as a single "thing" (which it isn't, and can't be, at least not here).
