    Do you think your local weather guy is more accurate then places like The Weather Channel? Right now our 7 day forecast is almost 70's and chance of rain. WC has us for the next 7 days barely getting us to mid 50's with rain for the same time.:confused:

    I dont believe any of them. Weather Underground is where I go on my computer. I believe my Weather Bug app on my phone takes the info from there as well. If I want to know if it is going to rain, I look for colorful stuff on the radar screen and look at which way it is moving.

    They are all a bunch of liars. I wish I could be worng all the time, and still get paid for it. If you want to know what the weather is doing, step outside, otherwise, it's a crap shoot.
