When the rain dance goes wrong

It's snowing. Big, fat flakes. I'm not even going to dwell on the fact that it's not even November yet. What's more screwed up is the forecast for the rest of the day/night:

This Afternoon: Rain showers likely before 3pm, then periods of snow showers. High near 40. North wind around 17 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%.

Tonight: Snow showers likely before 9pm, then rain and snow showers likely between 9pm and midnight, then a chance of rain showers after midnight. Cloudy, then gradually becoming partly cloudy, with a low around 35. Northwest wind around 18 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%.

... and then for Sunday:

Sunday: Partly sunny, then gradually becoming sunny, with a high near 63. West wind between 16 and 20 mph.

I think it's fair to say the weather gods are confused. So, anybody out there doing a rain dance, or a sun dance or a weather dance of any sort: Stop. You're doing it wrong and sending mixed signals. Or your weather god took one too many hits off his/her celestial crack pipe.
