I'm sure this gets questioned a lot but how accurate is the 15 day forecast?
I have to fly somwehere and I am not liking what I see, it's the farthest day out so I'm hoping it's quick to change. Thanks.

Beyond 3-4 days, the number of Computer Forecast Models which go into our forecast (before meteorologists tweak it) drops off considerably. I wouldn't put a lot of stock in something that any website says near the end of the forecast period, though it might serve as a quick look at the possibilities. On this thread, we talk more about models and how you can judge their accuracy.
