ALTHOUGH it’s a popular pastime for many Aussies to blast the weather forecast for being inaccurate, it seems the Sunshine State’s tourism authorities may now be taking its criticism a bridge too far.
Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC) has requested the Bureau of Meteorology change the terms “partly cloudy” and “chance of rain” to “mostly sunny” and “likely sunshine” in a bid to improve its image with tourists.
Other requests included spinning the words “showers” and “overcast” to “cooling down rain” and “cool day”.
It appears the state’s tourism agenda wants visitors to come to Queensland rain, hail or shine, or as the QTIC now refers to it, “refreshing, crisp or paradise”.
