The KSN Storm Track 3 weather team, led by Chief Meteorologist Lisa Teachman, has earned the distinction of providing Wichita’s most accurate weather forecast, certified by WeatheRate.  

For the last year, the KSN Storm Track 3 weather team has been submitting daily forecasts for review by WeatheRate.  The independent research company tracks all the daily forecasts in Wichita for accuracy in high and low temperatures, precipitation, severe thunderstorms, wind, snow and ice accumulation. The researchers also track sky cover, dense fog  and the timing of precipitation, verifying forecasts every day of the year, including holidays. 

“I’m really proud of our team.  We work around the clock to dig through the data to come up with the most accurate forecast for you and your family.  This is proof of our team’s hard work, dedication and commitment,” said Lisa Teachman, KSN Chief Meteorologist.

“We’re thrilled that Lisa Teachman and the Storm Track 3 Weather Team have earned our ‘Most Accurate in Wichita’ seal of approval this year,” said Bruce Fixman, President of WeatheRate, Inc.  “Forecasting the weather in Wichita is tricky business with lots of changes from one day to the next, including occasional life threatening storms.  Wichitans can trust Channel 3 for the most accurate forecast.”
