Weather Sites

Selected weather sites that stand out for their accuracy, visual techniques and levelheadedness.

In the last few days we’ve had more time than usual to reacquaint ourselves with weather websites. Admittedly, we were pretty well glued to our local news but in the process we came across a few sites that stood out. We thought we’d share the best of our discoveries here:

https://earth.nullschool.net/ – An amazing visual tool of global environmental systems. Would make a beautiful screen saver. It redefines “watching the weather.”

https://www.climate.gov – An obvious leader in reliable and concise weather information. It’s like the OED for weather sites.

https://spacecityweather.com/ – Our local favorite and standby for reliable forecasts minus the hysterics.
