    So far this year Weather Underground has been the most reliable for me.

    That's irrelevant to me. The figures is all I care about.

    Before this winter, I swore by my local NBC team, but this year for whatever reason, they have COMPLETELY SCREWED every forecast. Started with extended winter forecasts back in November. Used to be spot on, but this season, said average for season (26"). So far - 5.25". And usually pretty calm before hand, this year, blowing every upcoming event way up, then nothing. Misses us north or south.

    Started using it this season. Fairly on track most of the time.

    But often watch four sites and take the average.

    For us this year... it seems as that we catch less than forecasted. Last two years...more than forecasted. :dizzy:

    I have found the more reliable guys to be the local Facebook weather guys. WeatherNJ and Noreasternick, plus they give better insight

    Wrong people are fighting who's more wrong, seen it all, check that off the bucket list.

    Weather Underground, Weather Channel and Accuweather. Although I like the Weather Channel the best.
