There are alot of web sites and while many are close for forecast the actuall numbers seem to vary from one site to another as well as features. so as a matter of preference what site does everyone use?

I use Weather Underground.
More accurate for my area. The personal weather station network is amazing (I've got a station reporting to it).

More focussed on my homecountry (Belgium) and maybe difficult for non- weather experts to understand, but I use this one all the time :)

As weather enthousiast I'm active on http://www.weerwoord.be, but that's a Dutch website. But some might enjoy the pictures that pass there often.

I go to noaa.gov and then put in my zip code. Never had a wrong forecast yet and the guys and gals forecasters actually give times things should arrive, end etc. uses multiple satellites as opposed to one.

[quote="trackinsand"]i like weatherforyou.com here's a sample of what it looks like: http://www.weatherforyou.com/reports/index.php?forecast=zandh&pands=umatilla,florida[/quote]I've got my Personal Weather Station sending to them through their PWS Weather network. I like them. I'm also on a weather forum wxforum.net where we are kept up to date on future improvements. Soon WeatherForYou will be adding more features. Here's the discussion, http://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=15912.0

[/quote]I like NOAA. I wish they would make all MADIS stations avalible which are those reporting to the mesonet. They only offer this in Southern California. If you Google "Mesonet observations" it takes you to a map that has all the weather stations. You click on which station you want to view data and it pulls up a time line for the last 7 days. But unless you live on Southern California you have to search for it.

I go to our local nbc station website, accuweather, noaa.gov & compare the three. Then, I go outside & observe. Funny sometimes what the stations broadcast as the current conditions isn't accurate. I like a friend's facebook post showing a photo of "John's Weather Forecasting Stone" hanging by a chain from a plant hanger attached to the front of a country store. Stone is wet: raining. Stone is dry: not raining. Shadow on ground: sunny. White on top: snowing. Can't see stone: foggy. Swinging stone: windy. Stone jumping up & down: earthquake. Stone gone: tornado. I'm thinking about getting one of them weather stones.

There is also a version where 'stone gone' stands for 'stolen'. I'm still thinking which version I would buy, any reviews available?

I don't use The Weather Channel AccuWeather Yahoo or MSN. The Weather Channel is more about commercialization than anything else. All listed above get their data from the local air ports which are terrible at maintaining their stations. I like Weather For You. It has a Personal Weather station network.

I have been and will always use Weather Underground. Rapid fire updates, Unlimited access to historical data web cams, Individual station forecasts. If anyone hasn't been to www.wunderground.com you guys should try it.
