ABC 36 is honored to announce the ABC 36 Storm Team's new certification of "Most Accurate" weather forecasting in Central Kentucky.

The recognition comes from WeatheRate, an independent research firm known for being the nation's top authority of local weather accuracy.

Between March 1, 2013 and February 28, 2014, WeatheRate monitored the forecasts of all the television stations in Central Kentucky. The company compared each station's weather predictions with actual, observed conditions to find out which station's forecasts were the most accurate.

Included in the observations were high and low temperatures, cloud cover, precipitation, snow accumulation, wind, and fog. Severe weather predictions and timing of precipitation were also monitored.

Jason Myers arrived at ABC 36 in March 2013 as the station's Chief Meteorologist, leading the Storm Team to their "most accurate" title in his first year.

"It's a great honor to be recognized as the most accurate weather team in Central Kentucky," Myers said. "Yet, it's never about's about our viewers. We want to continually give our viewers the very best."

Myers is joined by ABC 36 Storm Team meteorologists Michael Estime, Mark Stitz and Stefanie Davis.

Their forecasts can be seen on WTVQ, at and through the ABC 36 mobile app for iPhone and Android.
