Checking the weather is more fun
by Martha W.
I have a little weather widget that gives me the current temperature in my browser and I often check www.wunderground.com for a forecast. It's usually slightly more accurate than the guy on tv. I checked out The Weather Network and was quite happy to find a direct link to our local airport's weather forecast. It's an hour by hour look at the weather.
At first look, I thought the temperature the site gave was way off! Then I realized it was giving the temperature in centigrade and we use fahrenheit here. A quick glance at my browser and I learned the difference in the two scales. Very interesting!
Since I live near the airport, this site is going to be the most helpful to me in terms of getting an accurate weather forecast. So very happy to have discovered it. Looks like I'll be bookmarking a new site.Barry's Response
- Thanks, Martha. I've recently discovered something even more fun at wunderground.com - it's their Wundermap
under the "Maps & Radar" tab. It shows temperatures and winds at several locations for each city so you can see where the small anomalies lie within your area. Very cool.Search
