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.

I never heard of the Weatherbug before. I should check it out. Seems like there is a lot of detail. I agree that you should check the weather everyday because you don't know what is bound to happen.

My son had downloaded weatherbug a few years ago and shortly afterward I took it off because the computer was having problems, plus I didn't like the sound it made. Now with better virus protection, I'll try it again. It would be interesting to have it on my taskbar.

I've explored the site and this website is great - very educational and the links load quickly. I'd like to see some printouts that can be used in the classroom that discuss certain topics in depth.
