Now they are saying the opposite of what everybody else is saying. They are saying that the PNW is going to have a dryer winter with above average temps. The West is going to be wetter than normal(including Socal) with some parts of below average temps. NOWA was predicting the opposite. What`s going on here? This sounds like the same pattern as last year.

I don't put much faith in the long range forecasts! Right now everyone is on the same page, talking about a major wind event for the midwest, and some saying the weather this fall is already due to a La Nina. This storm was in the Pacific NW a day or so ago.

I thought La nina meant cooler temps. We are having record highs in North Carolina. More like summer weather in June than Fall weather for October! I feel like my area has 3 seasons now instead of the 4 it had when i moved here 15+ years ago!

I don't put much stock in the Weather Channel any more. They are so busy now with NBC news and CNBC business updates and Al Roker and Full Force Nature and Cantore Stories and all the other dopey documentaries that you can't even get a weather forecast anymore.

I agree 100%!

Itís become a soap opera. NOAA is still the only real source of sane information.

Agreed. I like the detailed forecasts, without the hype. Only issue is that it seems difficult to access local records and data.

TWC is nothing but a 24-hour advertisement for cosmetics, baby products, fashion trends, tacky jokes and pollen indices. I get more information from TWC regarding puppy medication and online day-trading than actual, useable weather that I can apply to my daily routine.

Stick with http://www.weather.gov

Well, that may be true ... but even NOAA's long range forecasts are seldom accurate. Last year, NOAA was predicting that California and the SW would have a very wet, stormy winter due to a strong El NiŮo presence. It turned out that the winter was only SLIGHTLY above normal as far as precipitation, and that was really only during the months of January & February. Many weather stations actually reported below normal precipitation totals during December and March. So much for those long term outlooks!
