* Interpretation by this website of pictures below: the huge amount of "white" areas indicate the extremely difficulty for long term forecasts-

no forecasts are better than unreliable wrong forecasts- also no news is better than bad news

INTERPRETATION: * White colours indicate not enough information/ uncertainty what to forecast.
