    As we know vs as we all know...

    Could you explain if this phrase is correct:

    "As we know, the weather can be forecast."

    Is it the same as:

    "As we all know, the weather can be forecast"?

    Thank you!

    All those three [as we know, as we all know, we all know (that)] are used colloquially/casually to add emphasis/credibility. You can omit them without much loss.

    As we all know, weather forecasts are notoriously inaccurate.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
