4 Warn Weather rated "Most Accurate" in St. Louis



ST. LOUIS (KMOV) –For the second straight year KMOV Chief Meteorologist Steve Templeton and the 4-Warn Storm Team have been recognized for having the most accurate weather forecast among all news stations in St. Louis. The honor comes from the independent firm WeatheRate who monitored the forecasts for all of the news stations in St Louis each day for an entire year, and then named KMOV the most accurate.

Starting in November ’12 Steve has put the forecast to a very public test by launching his 4 Degree Guarantee. Monday through Friday on News 4 at 10 Steve delivers your guaranteed forecast that includes the high temperature for the following day. Then the next day on News 4 at 6 we will compare our forecast high temperature to the actual high temperature.

Each time that our forecast high temperature is within four degrees of the actual high, KMOV will donate $50 to a designated charity.

You can count on News 4 for the most accurate forecast in town and we are the only station guaranteeing our forecasts. So watch News 4 at 10 and News 4 at 6 to see just how accurate Meteorologist Steve Templeton can be. Proof of Steve’s accuracy is below in a month by month listing.
