"This Sunday's forecast it's probably going to be cloudy with a chance of meatballs..."

The Daily Forecast, introduced as part of Godville's third birthday celebrations in May 2013 [1], is a section of the Godville Times where heroes and their gods can see what unusual cosmic effects, if any, are acting upon the denizens of Godville on that day. Either exactly two special rules will apply on any given day, or none.


With the new feature released on 01 May 2019 (3278 g.e.) [2], Gods can now vote to influence the upcoming daily forecast.

Three choices are randomly proposed to Gods every day who may vote only once a day, the chosen option appearing bold afterward. Sometimes, instead of voting on what the next forecast should be, Gods are asked to vote for what the next forecast should not be about, in which case the next day's forecast might not be from the listed poll.

The winning forecast choice will be denoted with a 🗳️ (ballot box emoji) the next day of 02 May 2019 (3279 g.e.) The vote only influences one of the two possible forecasts as shown on the second picture below, but there is still a possibility of having no forecast displayed as it was already the case before.
