Default Weather Apps - Whether they matter

In the age of smartphones and artificial intelligence it seems like everybody has an app for the weather forecast. Everyone knows how cold it will be, and how hot it will be, and whether or not it will rain or snow. The weather forecasts on the apps and the tube however are not identical.

What I find unusual is how defensive my buddies are regarding their weather apps. If I mention some aspect of the (my) forecast to a group of friends, invariably it will be countered immediately with a contradictory forecast.

With something so illusory and inaccurate as a weather forecast, why is virtually everyone convinced that their weather forecast is more accurate than yours.

By the way there is a 60% chance of rain a week from Thursday.
