Description

If the weather outside is not good, tell them that it is going to clear up and be fine. If it is rather hot, predict cooler winds coming in. If customer cannot see the weather, you can even tell them that it is better than it really is.

Of course, your forecast should be realistic. If you are in the middle of winter, it would not be credible to say the weather was warm outside.

Discussion

People link weather to their feelings. If the weather is good, or is going to be good, then they feel good in response to this news. They also will feel more positive towards the person who gave them this good news, and who clearly is concerned for their happiness.

Rind (1996) found that telling people in casinos that the weather was good outside (whether or not it really was) led to a bigger tip.
