Accuweather - 25 day forecast

Accuweather used to have a 15 day forecast and now it goes out to 25 days. It may not be very accurate out that far but it's interesting to look.
We haven't had a late frost here yet this spring but there's a couple night's that are supposed to get down into the upper thirties according to their forecast which is a bit lower than when I checked it a couple days ago so that worries me. Everything is so far along here. It would be awful to get a frost/freeze now.
This is the forecast for me. Put in your zip code or city and state in the blank to see yours.

Here is a link that might be useful: 25 day forecast on Accuweather.com

Christie,

the weather forecasters can barely get the weather right a week out....and we were forecast to have a cold winter with higher than average snow amounts. In reality, we had our 4th warmest winter on record and the lowest snowfall total in memory. So, a 25 day forecast? Let's see them get the weekend right FIRST...lol

Hmmm....that's interesting that they've even predicted exact amounts of rain for your area, Christie. When I put my zip code in, I got a typical calendar and with no exact rainfall amounts predicted.

Very cool website. Forecasters are quite accurate in "my neck of the woods."

Misssherry - Click on "Extended Forecast" above the calendar, then click on the link for "All 25 days" that will appear right above the 5-day forecast. That will show the precip.

I don't trust the forecast either. I've been wanting to plant annuals so bad but I've been waiting.

I just saved the 25-day webpage for Portland. At the end of the month I will compare to the actual results.

The monthly summary at page bottom was wildly inaccurate.

It looks to me more like a computer modeling than an actual forecast, as it is not possible to forecast rain to within 1/100 inch.

All one can expect is that days ending up being dry vs. wet or above vs. below average temperature roughly match the predictions, plus or minus one day. The precise temperatures and rainfall will not closely match.

I hope they're right. I've got a school that wants to start planting next week.

The upper thirties that were in my forecast for mid April are now gone and the lowest temp I see is 45. I need to lock that in somehow. lol

Still not planting my annuals.
