their prediction can be right in one area of a place and in some areas they are not correct. there will be fluctuations in weather every time and every hour . no one can;t tell correctly about the weather . it is natures gift. they will tell normally about the weather.Weathercasters, also called weather reporters , report current and forecasted weather conditions . They gather information from national satellite weather services , wire services, and local and regional weather bureaus . Some weathercasters are trained meteorologists and can develop their own weather forecasts . some times reporters can gather wrong information . or they will assume some information and tell to the tv people . so with their assumptions , sometimes they can give wrong information to the public.

Well in Northern Virginia it snowed all day, we have 1.5-2 inches and its below freezing. So he was right in some cases, Fredericksburg isn't THAT far away from here either. They predict uncertainty, they aren't feeding you facts. For the most part, they are more reliable than your ability to look around and notice weather patterns.
