Why is it when I check the weather to plan a fishing trip in the Delta area I get completely different reports from different sights. How can some of them be sooooooo far off. I normally use Accuweather and they seem to be somewhat close. I used to use the Weather Channel. The past few times I checked Accuweather I decided not to go out then come to find out it was not as bad as they predicted. Then I check The Weather Channel and take thier advice and I decide to go out then Accuweather was dead on......

I have not even looked at the Accuweather report for this weekend yet but if its anything like the past few weeks reports it reads like this......

Temp somewhere between 75-80*
Wind somewhere between 15-18mph with gusts to 30mph

And Im going to say The weather Channel report looks something like this

Temp around 80-85*
Wind around 10mph

I think Im going to take my weather channel guess this time and make plans to go out this weekend

weatherbug. its all i use and its always right on. or as close as predicting the weather can be. never says bad and then its good. or visa versa.

its an app that sits on your icon tray. gives you real time temps. and has a real time wind gauge. been using it for a bout four years and love it.
