    they can't get the forecast right for tomorrow, and you want to see what they have to say about something in 2-4 months?!

    I try to keep update on whether or not the winter is going to be heavy, or next year is going to be a wet or dry year. It actually helps me prepare for the coming seasons. Whether to go out and buy that new machine or wait.

    I hope that I am not the only one that does this:rolleyes:

    Just buy the "Old Farmers Almanac". Seems that those old farmers know a lot more about predicting weather than our current weather forcasters with all their computers and doppler radars. Just goes to show you how far you can get with a little common sense.

    Accu Weather is the best .... hands down .... the premium site is $5 per month for 15 day forecast but the free one is fine fore next few days ..... just check the hourly forecast to what goes on in your area .... n see how good it really is

    Same web site that the Coast Guard uses

    Accuweather???? I respectfully disagree with that statement, but anyway. Go to weather.com then go into the forums, when it's closer to winter they will have a winter forum. You get some very interesting opinions, model data, etc. Just take some of it with a grain of salt.
