I love Yahoo Weather, it is so easy to use and navigate. One of the things that I like best about it is the long term trend portion of the website, where it can predict weather forecasts for 6 to 10 days in advance. While it is not always as accurate as a seven day forecast, it provides a good indicator of what may be coming.


I usually check my home town, Farmingdale, NY.

I like Yahoo's a bit better than the one above, just because I found it a little bit harder to navigate and use the NOAA Website. While the NOAA website did provide a huge amount of information, it was not really all information that I needed, which sometimes made it harder to locate what I was looking for.

The information on the NOAA was very condensed, and not graphical. I like just looking at a web page and almost instantly knowing what the weather is going to be like over the next couple of days. Yahoo's Weather website provides this easily, the NOAA site does not.

With a little bit of tweaking, and the re-arangement of information on the NOAA website, it would be much more useful, as all of the information is there, it just needs to be dug up.

Barry's Response - It has been said before that commercial providers tend to put a bit more effort into usability than governments. And this looks like another example.

Yahoo! Weather has a "The Weather Channel" logo on the output pages I saw, suggesting that's who provides the actual forecasts.

Here is another two you may not have heard about. weatherspark.com and Wunderground, weather underground.

I think it was a good idea that you compared other weather sites and let us know more information about them.

I also enjoyed this article on Yahoo weather. Very interesting and informative.

I also agree with the person above that you should have some of these sites as links on your website.

I've explored stuffintheair.com and thought it would be nice if it had a link to other websites where I could look up local weather info. Yahoo Weather sounds like it would give me what I want.

I'm am so glad there is a website about weather that is educational without being boring. stuffintheair.com is a very interesing, educational website. I've explored some of the links and am looking forward to checking out more.
