When searching for a city at The Weather Network, all you need is the city name without the state. A list will be brought up of various places. When I arrived, the temperature was listed in degrees celsius. The icon to switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit is small. It would be beneficial to be larger. Guess I'm used to

The layout is simple with clean graphics, pleasing to the eye. It's easy to read the forecasts. A weather map on the page would be a nice addition.

I usually use or I like the extended information and weather alerts available at - is fun but information overload!

Favorite Weather Site

My favorite weather site is I like the hour-by-hour link and the 10 day forecast. Living in the south, I want to know when and how much it will snow. I have found that many times is actually more accurate than the local news' weather site, is a great, very interesting website - it explains topics that I've often wondered about but never explored before. I'm looking forward to using it every time I have a question - like after listening to the local weather on tv.

I'd like to see a list of websites that other people recommend.

From Barry - So I asked my friends and family what websites they use for information. Everyone had a different suggestion for me, which surprised me. Looking forward to exploring all the websites and learning new stuff.
