What do use for weather forecasting a week or more out? I've not had much luck with anything so far, but if you have some suggestions, I'd like to hear them.
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS A LARGE AREA OF PRECIPITATION
SPREADING ONTO THE COAST BEING PUSHED BY A 160+ KT JETSTREAM. RAIN
AND WIND WILL INCREASE WITH THIS SYSTEM...THOUGH THE FOCUS MAYBE
FURTHER SOUTH SUCH THAT OUR SOUTHERN AND CENTRAL LOCATIONS GET THE
BRUNT OF THIS ONE. OROGRAPHICS WILL KEEP PRECIPITATION HIGH FOR THE
COAST RANGE AND CASCADES. THE RAIN WILL SAG SOUTH AND EAST TONIGHT
AND THURSDAY AS THIS SYSTEM MOVES TO THE EAST.
THE DEEP LAYER MOISTURE EASES OVERNIGHT TONIGHT INTO EARLY THURSDAY
FOR A BRIEF BREAK AS SURFACE RIDGING BUILDS OVER THE AREA...THEN A
VERY IMPRESSIVE BAND OF LOW MID LEVEL FRONTOGENESIS EXTENDING FROM
925 MB ALL THE WAY UP TO 500 MB OR HIGHER ON THURSDAY AFTERNOON.
PRECIP WILL BE INITIALLY FOCUSED SOUTH...THEN THURSDAY
NIGHT/FRIDAY...PRECIPITATION WILL SPREAD OVER THE ENTIRE AREA.
MODELS MOVE A SFC LOW NORTH OF VANCOUVER ISLAND FRIDAY WITH A SFC
TROUGH MOVING THROUGH OUR AREA...AS THE SFC LOW HEADS EAST THROUGH
B.C. THIS SYSTEM HAS A STRONG COLD FRONT WITH IT...AND A BIT BETTER
UPPER LEVEL SUPPORT. AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT. EXPECT ANOTHER ROUND OF
DECENT QPF FOR THE AREA AND STRONG WIND ALONG THE COAST AS WELL AS
BREEZY CONDITIONS TO THE INTERIOR ON FRIDAY. HOWEVER...AT THIS TIME
GUIDANCE SUGGESTS THAT WINDS WILL REMAIN BELOW WARNING CRITERIA ALONG
THE COAST. SNOW LEVELS WILL FALL SIGNIFICANTLY ON FRIDAY...BACK BELOW
THE PASSES...SO MORE SIGNIFICANT MOUNTAIN SNOW IS POSSIBLE FRIDAY
INTO EARLY SATURDAY...DEPENDENT ON HOW QUICKLYSNOW LEVELS FALL
BELOW THE PASS LEVEL. THEREFORE SOME SIGNIFICANT IMPACTS ON THE
HOLIDAY WEEKEND TRAVEL ARE POSSIBLE...AND WILL ISSUE A SPECIAL
WEATHER STATEMENT TO HIGHLIGHT THIS POSSIBILITY THIS AFTERNOON.

Serious note IMO long range is sketchy at best. The weather channel goes out 10 days, I like them. Seems like no products are very good beyond that. Local TV guys are pretty good.
