Question:

Does the law of averages makes sense in talking about the weather?

Explain.

Law of Averages:

The law of averages is a belief that the events or outcomes of a random experiment will even out or average out. Hence, the past and future events cancel out the deviation from a presumed average.

Answer and Explanation:

As the seasons change with the rotation of the earth around the sun. However, every 12 months the seasons repeat and a city experiences same or similar temperatures it experienced a year ago. Hence, it makes sense to talk about the law of averages in weather for a particular area or city, because the past and future temperatures will most likely even out against an average.

The rising temperatures because of global warming are leading to temperatures not experienced before and deviation from the law of averages.
