    Amen on that Mike. Weather.com is consistenly off by a number of degrees each day. Example , ont he 25th of Dec they have a high at 50 degrees for here in southern Nh while other local and national media and weather outlets have a high of 39. thats quite a difference. I know there are many computer models to go by and today the Govt. released a new model called the NMM I belive, more accurate Precip forecasts and more data matching through weather ballons which will help lead to more accuracy in forecasting. but weather.com is always off.

    It's looking good for Mike D with -12.5, so far -12, I think is the low from the monthly f 6 report. And NWS forecast for the rest of the week is showing no artic air arriving any time fast. Here's the link for the forecast.
