The Chronicle may need to upgrade its weather forecastsI apologize for the small, sideways graphic, but it was the best I could get shoehorned into this blog with my amateur skills. Note the "Now" temp is 79 degrees on a day with a High forecast of 68 and a Low forecast of 42. Shouldn't "Now" be somewhere in between the high and low? Isn't 11 degrees a pretty bad miss? Especially on a clear day with no fronts or other disruptive weather changes?
If somebody has access to the data, I'd love to see a weather forecasting accuracy comparison of the various Houston sources - the Chronicle, the local TV stations, radio stations, and I don't know who else (maybe they all get their weather from the same couple of sources?). If you have your own opinions, I'd love to hear 'em in the comments. I really don't know who the reputable and not-so-reputable sources are around here.
