What does it mean when a Meterologist calls for 50% chance of rain?

That it can rain but it might not.
So their not sure it's in the middle!

Sanca...dead wrong. Actually, 50% chance of rain means that it will rain 5 out of 10 times a forecast of 50% is given. in other words, 80% chance of rain, means it rain 8 out of 10 times 80% is forecast. Sanca...might want to change to folgers
