RedTank: I would imagine that a 45 day forecast could be somewhat accurate if you increase the area being forecasted but not very useful to anyone interested in their pinpoint location.... for instance forecasting the average temperature by region as opposed to average temperature by city. But the larger the sample size the less useful the prediction because people are more interested in the extremes and trends rather than averages.
