AccuWeather Has Been Calling the Rain for 50 Years

Today, AccuWeather officially turns old. The storm-tracking behemoth is celebrating 50 years of predicting the weather (or missing the mark completely?) since Philly native and Penn State grad Joel Myers founded the company in 1962. The State College-based AccuWeather has some 500,000,000 viewers worldwide. But the meteorologists aren’t resting on their laurels just yet; in their anniversary press release they say they’re already looking at the next 50 years and more accurate reporting. So will AccuWeather make weathermen 100 percent accurate, or will global warming kill us all first? [AccuWeather]
