  1. It’s been windy almost every day and yet they don’t predict the wind till a few hours before it starts. Great and they expect us to believe they can predict weather 30 years from now?
    YEA RIGHT!

    1. Hi, just curious what in the weathercast didn’t talk about the winds for Wednesday? I’m honestly curious in order to make it the best weather forecast as possible. I had a Satellite map showing the storm with the words “Gusty Winds” on the map. I had a map outlining the Wind Advisory, an hour-by-hour wind speed map, showing the strongest wind speeds. Then on the 8-days, I always try to label mine with “Windy” on those up-coming days. If you go back to earlier this week and even last week, I was also showing the winds for just about everyday. So is there something I could improve on?
