weather.com vs. accu-weather.com
    #4156679 - 05/10/05 10:49 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

You know what? Fuck them both, because you can't predict the weather. Meteorology is the alchemy of the 20th century. Weather.com changes their goddamn forecasts every 15 minutes, sometimes to extreme degrees. Accu-weather.com claims to have a 15-day forecast. What the fuck? You can NOT predict the weather 15 days in advance, no way, no how.

That said, searching 10003 on both those websites comes up with two different forecasts for tomorrow and I don't know who to believe.

Me too boO...I fuckin love dashboard, and the graphics on that widget make me keep it around but it's definitely not completelya ccurate. But I guess I do trust it more than weather.com

I've taken a few atmospheric science courses in the course of working on this geophysics degree, and I can tell you without hesitation...

The Weatherman is ALWAYS right. The weather, however, is unfortunately sometimes mistaken.

:confused:

I'm gonna stick with my original analysis.  YOu can't predict the weather ACCURATELY beyond a day and a half in advance.

Considering how variable the weather is, they do a damn fine job of predicting it. You're not supposed to take the forecast at face value but it's usually pretty accurate.

By the way: FUCK ACCU-WEATHER!!!

If you want to know why I say that then Google for "Rick Santorum" and "accu-weather". Fucking corporate welfare bullshit... let the gov't release their information :rant:
