What they said what "it's 52 degrees with a 100% chance of rain". There was no "100% chance of rain TODAY" or "...in the next 4 hours". So if an ANY point in the future, some time over the next 100,000 years it rains, they are correct.
I think that's rather obvious that some day it will rain.
Even if they did mean "in the next 24 hours", is there really NO POSSIBLE way for it to not rain? A solar flare could burn off the earth's atmosphere. A meteor could destroy the world. The LHC could create a black hole that sucks the earth into nothingness. In any of those three cases, it would not rain tomorrow, and each is possible (although unlikely).
It's the aboslute I don't like
