STH Stormwatch (08Nov2014) : Limitations of human knowledge, the depression fizzles out

Having almost, well, a jihadi belief in the predictions of meteorological science, it is scary to think their forecasts could also go wrong.
So it is good the storm weakened (and became a low pressure instead of blossoming into a full blown cyclone as predicted) but what if the forecast had gone awry and the depression had become a Very Severe Cyclone in a lesser time than forecast?
