Relative weather forecast

Absolute forecasts ("It will be 14°C today") are hard to understand. However, I can remember what the weather was like yesterday so a relative forecast ("It will be warmer than yesterday") would be more useful.

       I just stick my head out of the window and leave it there.

       A forecast with the weatherman hanging his head outside a window, and just leaving it there, would be entertaining, and probably more accurate as well.

       I remember watching the weather forecast one day whilst residing in Australia,the mapped television weather report for the day showed pointy things and bright yellow things.   

       I did not go out that day for fear of having my eye taken out or being blown up.

       Fine idea, but as with all temporally relative systems, it assumes the ongoing persistence of its client demographic.   

       What if I just wasn't around yesterday? I'd need a "bed-in" period of at least 24 hours before being able to properly benefit from such a system. I'm all for that, and an extra day in bed would be most welcome indeed, and so for that [+].

       Weather Underground does this (linked).

       We also get "Last year on this date it was 72 degrees"...which we don't want to know when it's only 36 degrees today.

       They already say things like "Sunny and warmer today"; plus, if you look at the weekly forecast it shows temperatures numerically, and the numbers can be compared to each other to see which ones are higher.

       Since I got a Moto Guzzi I divide my weather into "motorcycle" and "non-motorcycle".
