QOTD: How Do You Get Your Forecast?

Today was supposed to be a snowmageddon around these parts. Instead, it's just a gray, cold day.

This means the weather forecast -- and presumably the weather apps that bring the forecast to your electronic devices -- was off. Not unusual, of course, weather is unpredictable. I always remind myself of that before getting too angry at the weatherperson on the local news or the app on my phone for being wrong. Well, I try, anyway -- I've complained about weather apps more than a few times.

But while weather forecasting is not, and probably never will be, perfect, some apps seem to get it right more often than others.

So, I ask of you, B and B -- which weather app do you trust most when you're prepping for your day? Whether you have a commute to the office or are prepping for a road trip, what app do you turn to for weather forecasts?

Sound off below.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    Squadron weather office was in full weather-geek mode, using weather terms like "oktas" for cloud cover. Skipper asked him if he looked outside this morning.

    Website - weather.com which allows me to actually to be able to read the screen instead of trying to squint to see on those damned phones (even my 6.75 inch screen is not large enough on some apps)
