(Shenandoah Valley, VA, US)
I normally use WeatherBug on my iPhone for getting the local weather forecasts but I have to say, this site really rocks for my day-to-day PC use.
I live in rural VA where, as you may know, the weather can change from a bone chilling zero degrees to 50 in a span of hours. Having up to the minute weather information is ESSENTIAL when leaving in the morning (especially because I work over an hour away from my home) and knowing what car to take is important.
At first I was a little leary about WeatherBug (I heard so many bad things about tracking cookies) that I removed it from my PC and decided to use only online based weather tracking. I feel a little better about using it on the iPhone but only slightly.
Just this week I took a trip to Arizona with my family and I practically lived on this site since the weather there can be just as erratic as it is here in Virginia. At the airport, I was able to log in to this site and check the weather at my stop over location of Minneapolis, MN and found that the temperature was -46 (yes, that’s a negative sign!) and luckily kept my coat handy to brave the walk to the hotel. Leaving 79 degree weather of Arizona for this - fortunately not a surprise …Barry's Response
- Ah yes. The Jet-set weather surprise. It's a good thing to know ahead of time, isn't it Lori. Of course, learning how to understand old-fashioned weather maps
might help in some cases, too.Search
