As for YouTube... anymore if I see a clickbait thumbnail, I skip the video. I'm sure I miss some decent stuff but fact is there's allot of crap out there, and its generally those with a clickbait-ish thumbnail.
When looking at YT for forecasts prefer channels like 'Forecast Lab' (Tim Vasquez) because they do a much more down to earth professional-level job without the over-hype or a bunch of stupid sound-effects in the background.
I do admit I watch Reed's .. as he calls them 'live emergency weather briefings' (even though he deff hypes things), but I can no longer watch any of his videos that have been edited before upload...those stupid moving text boxes ruin them. (he is the one exception I make for clickbait-ish thumbnails) .. whoever he's got editing videos & doing thumbnails IMO is ruining his stuff.
Sorry to anyone who is a fan but I can't stand Ryan .. I bypassed my "avoid videos with ckickbait thumbnails" thing and tried to watch couple of his vid's at some point... couldn't even finish them. The flashy graphics & stupid sound-effects made it totally unwatchable for me. So I have no idea if the info he puts out is actually good or not.
If I'm wanting up to the minute local weather, I'll just plug in the weather-radio or(if its evening time for news) turn on the TV.
That said, I don't go to YouTube for 'professional' weather, infact I pretty much avoid channels that obviously belong to TV stations/networks. LOL
Oh and I 100% avoid TikTok (infact I blocked it on my home network) as that app & website is malware/spyware. I certainly want nothing to do with it.
