Accuweather

Does anyone else find the accuracy of Accuweather has to the dogs lately.

I used to swear by it especially with golf, the rain was spot on for the hourly forecast, but lately it is totally unreliable when it come to rain forecast.

Funny you should say that, yes, it's gone to the dogs. And roger that, it used to be bang on the money, won a few small bets, wouldn't win any nowadays.

Yep I agree too. It even makes Met Éireann look good these days. Well Evelyn Cusack can still a few porkies though when it comes to the sunny spells. ha

Does any 1 know if Joe Bastardi has left accu? His blog for UK weather was fairly good and accurate at the best of times but cant seem to find his blog these days
