How Often is Frequently?

Out of observations and forecasts apply a degree of smoothing to the chaos known as the atmosphere in order convey a sense of the 'prevailing' conditions at any one time.

The answer to tonight/s musical question is informed less by the definition of 'frequently' than by its antonyms....
...and by its usage in axioms such as "more often than not."

"Nearly"..."several times"...and "almost" just don/t measure up. Scientific phenomena...such as hurricanes...severe wx...and blizzards...are described and categorized according to a well-defined classification scheme.

Nobody ever said this was horseshoes.
