The new weather channel sucks!

They seemed to have changed the web site a few months ago and I hate it! There is another major storm in the works and all the weather channel is talking about is this past blast...still. Not that is not worth talking about but its over and if I were down there I would be more worried about the things to come. I love Accuweather!

I'm happy it wasn't just me! You need to go thru 3 pages just to get to the forecast in text, I hate it!

Weather channel has always been worthless in my opinion. Local news for the win!

The only good thing about any one of those listed above is accu-weather, because i can get their radar real clear on my phone, the rest are worthless. NOAA, and local news is all I use.

I agree, especially since the weather channel changed their web site. All the pop ups and crap, the site is a joke

It seems they dont even know what its doing WHEN its happening. Best to monitor multiple sources and anything with a radar do come to your own conclusion!

Accuweather IMO has gotten better since last year. They were forecasting storms last year when it didn't even snow. This year they seem to be pretty spot on (for my area at least) I usually listen to NOAA though...mostly because the gov controls that one... and the government controls our weather so it all works out. Remember to thank Obama for this snow storm!

The Weather Channel on the TV is getting worse by the day. They think that they are a news channel now are something. With the morning show, and also they have all these stupid F-ing shows on like Storm Stories. Its snowing, I want the local forecast, and instead they are talking about a tornado the hit Kansas in 1987. Can you beleive it, a tornado in Kansas.........WTF!!!!

I always say the same thing... The Weather Channel - everything but the weather.

Remember when MTV was a channel dedicated to music??
