Just curious, fellow New Englanders--where do you get your weather forecast? I've used Weather.com as the Weather Channel seems pretty solid, but it never seems to be that accurate. I know it's not exactly an easy thing to predict (especially here), but I really like to be prepared for what the day may bring!

I would always pick my local ABC station with weather.com as a backup.

I look outside. I don't really check weather. Sometimes the Globe.

I use the weather.com app on my phone, and Firefox has a widget for the lower corner that uses Accuweather.com, and I have that installed. Usually between the two I can figure it out, more or less.

Yeah, any more for my purposes this is ultimately what I'm doing. My morning brain processes like a cavewoman anyway, so it's like, "Sun good. Me bike."

I use accuweather on my phone, or the weather app on my computer.

However, yesterday they were not in agreement, so take that for what you will

I'm not from New England, but I swear by Weather Underground. If you scroll down to the bottom, you can find a list of weather stations and pick the one closest to your house for the most accurate reading! Due to MKE's weird microclimates/living next to a giant body of water, there can be up to a 10-degree difference between what my Accuweather widget says and what the temperature is in my backyard.
