FA vs NOAA long term accuracy score?

I recently retired, and have long planned to make my retirement home in Aransas Pass. I've been disappointed to hear that the mainstream weather community's winter forecast calls for Wet and Chilly for the Coastal Bend due to El Nino conditions, seemingly the opposite of FA's forecast.
Can anyone with decades of weather watching experience comment on which of these two entities has the better long term track record?

Weather information

I have always followed the FA b/c my grandfather reported the rain amounts and such when he was here with us. He always said the FA was on spot. Hope we will be getting some snow this year in North Texas.

Hoping for colder weather

Wellll, I see that I wasn't the only Texan to come here and see what the FA has to say about all this rain we're getting! I hope the rain is a good indication of a hard winter this year. We need it!! The mosquito's and moths were insane this summer and we need a good hard freeze to kill them off for next year. I hope FA is off and will be proved wrong by a hard frost. Fingers crossed!

cold this winter

Amber, according to my reliable source (Joe Bastardi) it is supposed to be a cold wet winter with several chances for ice and snow and that should kill all these unwanted bugs.

Moths and Butterflies

Why Do I Have Moths & Butterflies All Over My Car In Gainesville, Texas?

Perhaps it's caused by this crazy weather.

Never in my life have I seen it this cold in Texas during the middle of October. It probably gave the bugs quite a shock as well.

I’ll take it!

If y’all’s predictions of sunny and warm for south Texas (Lake Conroe) area translate into the 50• temps we’re getting tomorrow, I will take it! Y’all say we’re going to be hot for the winter, but NOAA is saying we’re gonna be well below average, I think I’m gonna stick with them and be super excited! I’ll just use you guys as a starting point in the future; whatever y’all say it’s going to be, it’ll be the opposite! Got to start somewhere, seriously though thanks for all the hard work in doing everything else!

Oddly Off

I'm a bit surprised at the September forecast this year...! It's way off. We've gotten so much rain here in south Texas...more than the last three months combined! Then with the winter forecast being opposite of NOAA?? Are you guys feeling ok, Old Farmers Almanac?!
