The system forecasts weather of Sundays only, inspired by the song Gloomy Sunday, which is also known as the Hungarian Suicide Song. It is a song composed by Hungarian pianist and composer Rezső Seress and published in 1933. The original lyrics were titled Vége a világnak (The world is ending) and were about despair caused by war, ending in a quiet prayer about people’s sins.
