    Cool weather radar site

    I like it, no nonsense site and a rocket science degree not required.

    No thanks, I can get 24 on one page with WFAA. I will admit Intellicast is cool though.

    With Forecastfox I can simply hover my cursor for radar and info without leaving the page I'm on.

    in a slightly different life, where I am good at physics and math, I would have been a meteorologist

    wfaa is very nice for Texas. never used intellicast but it looks pretty legit. I like the weather.com radar since it zooms in so closely and updated pretty timely, but I normally check NOAA for the most part. makes me feel intelligent when I can attempt to read some of the more complicated maps.

    forecastfox stopped working when I updated to 4.0... I'm removing and reinstalling to see if it helps. it's a pretty nifty add-on, though.

    thanks for sharing hanky :D

    When hurricane season gets cranked up, the best site on the interwebs:

    HardcoreWeather

    They'll have updates from the NWS and NOAA 20 minutes before the Weather Channel broadcasts them.
    Thank you, that is all.

    Welcome to Weather Underground : Weather Underground

    They have a pretty cool radar and is easy to use for the most part. It cost $10 a year for the no-ad site, but if you sign up and use this coupon code BAVV5 you get it free for a year to try. They also have a mobile site.

    not exactly a weather site per se, but a lot of his posts are weather-related. Like this one:

    SciGuy is probably one of the only few blogs worth reading from the Chronicle. I enjoy his posts :]

    never heard of Stormpulse 'til now, but it's awesome. I like it! can't wait for hurricane season to get a bit more active...
