*Persistence is a method of forecasting that takes today's weather and forecasts that tomorrow's weather will be exactly the same. This is often used as a benchmark when comparing the quality of other forecasts.

We’re also smart enough to know that we’re not always going to be the most accurate every time. Check your location’s accuracy scores from forecastwatch.com by clicking here.
