More Information

This kind of predicting is based on scientific research. To predict something from a feeling, see ghut. For a prediction which is fraudulent or suspected to be fraudulent, see qut.

When talking about the weather, phrases are usually constructed with 'e', but using net is not incorrect. (confirmed by Marc Okrand in a message to ChrisLipscombe, see qep'a' 2017)
