Hi Janet, you could ask that of any forecaster. Because no forecaster is 100% accurate every forecaster has different ways of doing it. Our data at WeatherWatch has been rated independently by a Government Agency here in NZ and independently on a global scale as being the most accurate available, but we’re not perfect either – always improving though.
