There is. A local club has a CSC site listing (Wagman, Pittsburgh). I find CSC
interesting, but have seen it totally miss and give eggregiously wrong forcasts as well.
In the final analysis, I still find the best source of weather info is to check several
sources of raw data and make your own predictions.
And I wish the weather people would be honest and SAY weather prediction instead of
forcast--- subtle difference, but perhaps more honest.
