    I've only had Accuweather misguide me once last year.

    I really like it.

    Accuweather may be right. All the weather places here and including NWA are saying that extreme southern Minnesota will have very little snow. More of an ice event for them because of the warmer temps. I guess we'll see.

    as soon as you start trusting any weather man you are asking for trouble.

    I always look at everyone's predictions and compare them. Gives me way more info than trusting one of these bone-heads.

    :eek: How does that work? Did he get the wrong maps on his desk one morning?

    How do you go about explaining that one the following day?

    Thats the honest truth.

    NWS was putting estimates on our last snow. It was close enough for me. 4" on Saturday. Accuweather was forecasting snow couple days ahead of the NWS.

    Last few years I tracked the sites. I took predictions 2 days out.

    Accuweather was with in 3 inches
    Weather Sentury was with in 5
    NWS was (If you only took their low forecast) 15 inch high If you took their high forecast they were 28 inches high.

    Yes they are all over the board on their long range. Sometimes they adjust the forecast the day of as snow starts however any of them are better than the TV/

    We have a potential storm My call in service is calling for .25 of an inch (they were with in 1 inch last year.) tv 1-2 inches....
