Weather-O-Meter grades Denver forecasts

In a brave display of transparency, The Denver Post publishes how accurate their forecast is each day in their Weather-O-Meter. But they don’t stop there, they measure the accuracy of every Denver forecaster. Even the Weather Channel and National Weather Service are compared. According to the site, last week The Denver Post was the most accurate, while the Weather Channel was the least accurate. And it doesn’t seem to be biased, as it shows yesterday the paper was ranked #6 for accuracy (while Weather Channel was #9). This is a unique way to aggregate all the local forecasts in one place, and provide more evidence to their users that weather.com isn’t really the best source for local weather.
