lol...as a stormchaser, I prefer to utilize NOAA.gov for forecasts...they can be wrong too, but they seem to be more accurate than any of the other organizations who like to put their own spin on things. If there's weather in or expected to be in the area, they will also post short term forecasts, hazardous weather outlooks, any advisories, etc up above the forecast which you can click on and get the full details.

So if it looks like a beautiful day but it's calling for afternoon storms, you can click "Hazardous Weather Outlook" and get a short blurb about what they expect to happen, when and where it's expected to hit and so on.

If I need accurate weather info, I ask the state highway workers that come into my store. I don't know where the highway department gets their info from, but it is usually dead nuts on target. When the evening weather liar comes on the local news and predicts a huge snow storm, I watch for the snow equipment on the interstate and if I don't see any I know the weather liar is wrong again.

If I really feel the need to check online for the weather, I use Weather Underground. Prefer them to all the others.

I check the NOAA every couple days for trips to Nevada and their options are accurate--can'tbeatit
