Differing forecasts online - which is most reliable?

    Hi there, I'm sure this topic has been raised before by other weather noobs so apologies in advance. I've a trip booked to Genoa in Italy this weekend and after daily Googling of 'Genoa weather' the forecast looked so bad that I was going to change plans and head elsewhere in Italy.

    However after looking at Accuweather it paints a slightly different picture. Google has 80% precipitation on Saturday and 90% on Sunday, while Accuweather has only 3 hours of precipitation on Saturday and another 3 on Sunday - much less dramatic.

    Generally speaking, does one tend to be more accurate than the other? Am I possibly misreading the forecast on Google?
