Weather Underground

A while back I discussed the best weather sites on the Net. At the time, I named Accuweather as the top pick, but I have to say that in the last few months, I’ve revised that. Maybe all the ads on their page got to me.

Now, I’m a bigger fan of Weather Underground, a site that’s been around for as long as I can remember. They offer up clean, concise, but complete weather information around the world, gathering information from many local weather stations. The site has a few ads, but they’re easy to get rid of. For a mere $5/year you can subscribe to their site. This means no more ads, an option to receive weather-based e-mail alerts (I’m always the first to know about flood warnings!), and a nicely customizable first page, with weather information about selected locations available at a glance.

In my dreams, I’m a weather geek, and Weather Underground manages to satisfy all my windy, rainy, sunny desires.

It's time for Monica to chime in with her Weather Weenie knowledge!

I like weather underground, too, but I'm kinda partial to the stuff our department has on the web, especially the models.

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!
