Met Office drops seasonal forecast

The Met Office is to stop publishing seasonal forecasts, after receiving criticism over its repeated failures to predict long-term weather prospects.

That is the headline to this article.

An extract from the article;

"Although we can identify general patterns of weather, the science does not exist to allow an exact forecast beyond five days, or to absolutely promise a certain type of weather.

I thought they could predict what will happen over 100 years from now, or am I getting the wrong end of the (hockey) stick?
