Weather Sites

As a kind of late follow-up to Paul’s Weatherbug Ping, here’s a list of my favorite weather forecasting sites:
  • AccuWeather
    My personal favorite, AccuWeather seems to have the most detailed and accurate weather of any site on the Net.
  • Weather Underground
    A close second to AccuWeather. Tons of info, I just slightly prefer AccuWeather’s presentation.
  • The Weather Channel
    Obviously a good resource and a tad more entertaining than the TV station. 🙂
  • Intellicast
    Pretty standard forecast site.
  • CNN
    Not terribly exciting, but it’s there.

Those are all well and good but they'll never beat sticking your head out a window.

Well, weather sites (thanks for the info, Ryan!) are particularly useful for travel, so you know if you have to worry about your flight being cancelled and so forth; you can't stick your head out 2000 miles.

And if you live in a place such as Chicago which has harsh and unpredictable weather, you really do need to keep on top of the weather forecasts, so you can plan around it. I don't check weather except for travel, as I live in Oregon, and do not want screen burn-in with the text "lo 35, hi 45, partly cloudy, 50% chance of rain", but I certainly can understand that forecasts are very important in places with more temperamental weather.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
