Out With The Old, In With The New

ForecastWatch has added coverage of three weather forecast providers for both the "Last Month" and "Last Year" accuracy statistics.

We have added coverage for WeatherBug, Foreca, and MeteoGroup. WeatherBug was added due to strong ForecastAdvisor user demand, and Foreca and MeteoGroup were added as they are popular internationally and increasing their U.S. presence.

However, in order to keep the table to a reasonable size, we've also removed three providers. We removed Intellicast because that site is providing the same Weather Channel forecast, World Weather Online as its forecasts are not competitive (it always appeared in the bottom two for every location), and the NWS Digital Forecast (forecasts from the NDFD) as it is effectively a duplicate of the NWS website and isn't an end-user product.

These changes should make the site more interesting and usable. As always, please send suggestions and comments!
