TULSA - KJRH 2 Works for You Weather has been awarded the WeatherRate title of Certified Most Accurate in Green Country for the eighth year in a row.
WeatheRate is the only independent verification company for weather accuracy certification in the United Stated.
Meteorologists George Flickinger, Taft Price and Brittany Rainey are the WeatheRate certified most accurate weather team in Tulsa.
WeatheRate utilizes patented WeatherTracker II software to verify high and low temperature, sky cover, precipitation, snow accumulation, wind and fog, as well as the forecasting accuracy of severe weather.
Mathematical calculations determine which TV station provides daily, weekly and monthly accuracy, and only that station is awarded the WeatheRate seal of approval.
“WeatheRate is not affiliated with any TV stations or media company, so we determine annually who’s really most accurate in Tulsa,” said meteorologist Bruce Fixman, President of WeatheRate. Fixman founded WeatheRate in 2003 after a lengthy career as a meteorologist.
The company verifies accuracy for 300 stations in 75 cities each day.
