National Weather Service (NWS)
If you plan on following the weather seriously, you should bookmark the National Weather Service. Operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA), the NWS web site provides you with detailed weather information for all of the United States. Of particular interest to those who love to track the weather are:
- Detailed warning information
- Forecast discussions
- Graphical forecasts
- Forecast discussions with a glossary to help you understand terms
- Severe weather
There is tons more there, and it’s all worth a look. You can get local forecasts, with great discussions about them, for your local area. You can also monitor severe weather in the event that you’re looking to do some storm chasing. And, you can watch the satellite to see when that next rain or snowstorm will hit your area. The NWS site is a treasure trove of information for people like me who love the weather. Check it out, and I’m sure you’ll find it interesting as well!
