WeatheRate & 3° Guarantee - CBS46 News

CBS46 weather team three degree guarantee

When it comes to a forecast you can trust, look no further than CBS46.

We are proud to announce we have been certified as "Atlanta's Most Accurate Weather Forecast" three years in a row.

Each night, we submit our forecast to WeatheRate, the only independent weather forecast verification company in the United States.

WeatheRate placed our forecast side-by-side with the other stations in Atlanta and found ours to be most accurate for temperatures, rain, snow and severe weather forecasts.

Points are awarded for forecast elements. At the end of the week, scores are tallied and averaged and this process continues over the entire year.

At the end of the year, WeatheRate determines which station is the most accurate based on this point system. This year, we are the most accurate by a wide margin.

Now you know when you see our forecast each night, you'll be able to better judge when to water the yard, how to dress the kids and most importantly, plan your weekend!

As of March 2015, we have put our forecast to a very public test by launching the 3 Degree Guarantee. Monday through Friday on CBS46 News at 11, we deliver your guaranteed forecast that includes the high temperature for the following day. The next day on CBS46 News at 6 we will compare our forecast high temperature to the actual high temperature. Each time our forecast high temperature is within three degrees of the actual high, CBS46 will donate $50 to a designated charity.

You can count on CBS46 for the most accurate forecast in Atlanta and we are the only station guaranteeing our forecasts. So watch CBS46 News at 11 and CBS46 News at 6 to see just how good our forecast can be. We'll track the proof of our accuracy, month by month below.
