    Is there a more INACCURATE weather provider out there?
    They never get any thing right where I live. I can do a better job than they can/do.

    I use MyCast Weather by Garmin. Ive used accuweather, weatherbug and several others. This is my favorite for sure. Very good radar.

    Accuweather, Swackett, Weatherbug, Apple's App, Weather Underground

    I compare what they all say and go with something in between.

    I have WeatherBug on my phone. WOrks pretty well with rain, nothing on snow yet though. Just took the leap from the dumb phone a few months ago.

    I have a Sumsung phone and use Fullscreenradar for seeing the big picture as you can see the entire country and zoom in from there, and weather.gov is the most accurate for me here in Chicago area for the free ones if that is what you are looking for. If you are considering accuweather don't waste your time...more like inaccurate weather as everyone I know calls them :)

    there is this network of backyard weather guys who all belong to the same network. Here my local site is


    It is by far the most reliable, and very accurate. All the rest are 50/50 as far as their estimations go.

    NOAA provides great info. It's on all my Droid Razor M phones. Also I'm was wondering on average how many times do you check your phone concerning weather per day in the winter months. approximately ???
