Default What happened to the Promise of the Reorganized NWS?

I think Accu-Weather is simply using output from the GFS model, and having
it automatically turned into graphics by a computer. This isn't much of an's just hyped-up model numbers.

When the National Weather Service reorganized in the early to mid 90's it
promised much better forecasts that would go out 7 to 10 days... well
a non-governmental private company "ACCU WEATHER" is going out
as far as 15 days with their accurate forecasts.

Like most things the government can't do a very good job.....private

forecasting companies seem to be leaving the federal government NWS in
the dust. Its about time that these private companies compete to put out
the general forecasts.
