    I'm just glad that they can predict a whole winter, because they sure as hell can't get tomorrow correct

    Look at Accu's map. WTH?!?! Of course the midwest is cold and snowy. Of course OK -> TN is more ice than snow. Of course FL is mild.

    If FL was listed as cold and snowy and the midwest was listed as mild, THEN we'd have something to write home about.

    If they get tomorrow weather right then i will start trusting it. Being in the construction business i look at the weather on monday morning and the 5 day outlook to plan our week. Half the time midway through the week ihave to readjust so whatever they want to say ;-)

    I will say that i put more trust in the almanacs then weather man looking out that far.

    The weather men and women have the only job that they can be wrong every day and still keep their jobs just saying.

    Very true. I was talking with another meteorologist buddy in Wisconsin and that is exactly what we were saying. If you created a map of typical winter conditions, it's look just like that one!

    It's just not very useful information. If you read the text that went with it, there is a little more substance, but nothing earth-shattering.

    Well, you can't be wrong EVERY day. Gotta get a few right here and there! :)

    That's true if you watch the 9am newsby then they know if it's going to snow rain or be sunny but the night before your guess is as good as theirs.
