Default local weather reports

Of the local stations, which one has the accurate weather reports? I know in most markets that one station seems to guess somewhat better than the others. I haven't been able to figure out who that is in Pittsburgh.

Just see what the weather was yesterday in Cleveland. The local weather guys/gals are hilarious, but not accurate.

It's funny because I was just realizing earlier this week, our local weather forecasters will call for "up to 4-6 inches for this part of the viewing area" and then you turn on The Weather Channel and they'll say "snow accumulations generally 2 inches or less" I don't know about you, and I guess it's different everywhere as Pittsburgh channels cover a large viewing area...but I didn't see 4-6 inches of snow anywhere I went this week.

KDKA is calling for a general 3 to 6 for Allegheny County and north and East of us, 6 to 12 in the laurel highlands, 7 to 12 or more north of I-80, and 2 inches or less in Washington and Greene. WPXI had 2 to 4 for Pittsburgh and 4 + north of 422. We'll see whos right; I'm hoping KDKA haha.

Saw 1-2 feet predicted for the I-90 corridor east of Cleveland and into Erie, and 1-2 feet predicted for the I-68 corridor past Morgantown into Garrett County, Maryland... should be an interesting weekend

So I guess it's not just me. I was hoping people who'd been here longer than I would have a better idea. I guess the better idea is just that none of them get it right. I know in Boston that WBZ is usually pretty dead-on with snowfall amounts and areas. Oh well, I guess I'll just stick with looking out the window. And I've noticed that the weather channel isn't right that often either. Is it somehow that much more difficult to predict the weather here compared with New England?
