I once asked on one of thees two newsgroups what a 40% chance of rain
really meant, and I got good answers.

Today almost by accident I came across
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chance_of_rain which actually points to
Probability of Precipitation, for people who have more syllables than
they know what to do with.

Anyhow, it's a good clear answer. (although so were the answers I got
here.)
