Problems with weather forecasts in Finland

Bubbles in rain, originally uploaded by jiihaa.

It has rained since morning here in Vantaa, Finland. However, the weather forecasts (both FMI and Foreca) say that it is half-cloudy, a minimal amount of rain (less than 1 mm) possible.

Today is not the only time during this summer that the forecast have been unreliable. There have been cases of heavy rain when none was promised, and sometimes vice versa. Even looking at several different weather sites hasn't helped, the forecasts have been wrong in different ways.
