We have Oklahoma City for our weather forecasters. Norman is the hub of all the
Tornado studies and tracking around. Maybe that makes the forecasting more
     We usually listen to channel 4 around here whatever that affiliation may be.
Most of our work around on a ranch is weather related so we really do depend on it
daily to schedule what gets done.  Every now and then you do get a messed up
forecasts but most of the time you can depend on them. When they do flub up it hasn't
been as drastic as some I have heard of on this list. Just little things. I have
really enjoyed the dependability (knock on wood).
