    Hi I was looking to see if there are any websites that you guys use that you can either subscribe to or that are free, that you feel are pretty accurate with the weather because generally around here Noaa, as well as the local stations can be off by quite a bit

    around here, NOAA is the most accurate.
    Accuweather seems very close to Weather.com's (weather channel)'s forecasts, and for being "The Weather Channel", their forecasts are ALWAYS the furthest from what happens.

    Gather all the forecasts, get your best guess, and just watch the radar.
    that is how we work each storm.
    Even after the storm has started, you can manage intensity and timing of it just by watching the movement of the radar.
