You know 5% accuracy for average maximums, minimums and mean temperatures for the whole year, monthly if you like. I don't live there but I do trust the weather experts and climate scientists to nail it. Deal or no deal?

Scientific skepticism is healthy. In fact, science by its very nature is skeptical. Your offer sounds rather vague either you can do it or you can't? However I would not be interested in 5% but if you could get that number down to about 1.5% to 3% you might get my attention.
