Putting the "Accu" in Accuweather

Okay, 700 different weather sources tell me that Leominster is going to get 11-15 inches of snow in the next 24 hours. (See: Weather.com)

I went to Accuweather on my phone (to their wireless site, pda.accuweather.com) and punched in the Zip code for Leominster (01453).

Their report?
Today - Snow early, then more snow late in the day, accumulating a coating to an inch.
Tuesday - Snow with little or no accumulation in the morning.

So am I missing something? And which one do you trust?

I hope they don't have anything to do with these.

I put in my Zip code and then saw this RED ADVISORY:

Live forecast for your area
WARNING!!! SEVERE LIGHTNING

Which I know must be really serious because they used THREE exclamation points! But instead, I got this animated character "reading" the weather:

yecch

And he doesn't say ANYTHING about SEVERE LIGHTNING and he's creepy and now I'm not going to be able to get to sleep for four days because just as I'm falling asleep, I'll be picturing him moving his little cartoony head and ow, make it stop!

(What's your zip? I want to see for myself!)

If you get through his forecast and then click on Boston to get the regional one, there's a MUCH creepier guy doing the Boston weather, and after he finishes talking, if you move the mouse his eyes and head follow it!

Well, considering that the animated weather guy seems to be giving a forecast from last Thursday, I think it's safe to say you can ignore him and the entire site...

But he's amazingly on-target for this current storm, if a day off. His bit goes into the end of this week, actually.

The local report (with the asexual cartoon guy) was current.
