I'm looking for a new website to look at the weather.

Weather.com sucks, is slow, and locks up IE all the time. I'd like something that has animated maps if possible.

What do you use?

I am more of a weather geek, so I go to http://nws.noaa.gov

That's the official site for the National Weather Service.

But I know a lot of people that use accuweather.com too.

If I'm on my laptop, I use a simple html file that I created with all the local, regional, and national radar maps that I like best. Load time is great and I don't have to deal with all the other junk. On my mobile phone, I use Accuweather.com and have an app for that. It's a cool app because it uses GPS to find the weather wherever I am, so I can check radar very quickly.

Work won't let me download FF and at home, the website still sucks. IE did not create the bloated slow ass POS that is weather.com.

Weather.com is superior for philadelphia. I've tried wunderground and accuweather and both had worse hour to hour weather (I tried them all out during snow storms). Weather.com was the only site that got it correct.

NOAA all the way. Their live radar loop is the best I've come across.

I would recommend Weather Underground. Great site.

I have IE and FF both on my Laptop, the IE is MUCH more user friendly. And before anyone says it is my laptop, it is a new, smoking fast, Toshiba with Vista.
The only advantage I have found with FF, is that it has spell check built in. It absolutely refuses to let me load certain programs, but IE has no problems.

No doubt.


Weather.com works fine for me & FF.

I step outside and look up into the sky, and feel the air around me to see if I need a coat or not.

If I happen to watch the news which is very rare, I'll listen to Lesak.

On my computer I have an accuweather application in the corner. That's almost wrong half the time though.

strange story, my grandfather-in-law supposedly helped establish NOAA.com and the NOAA (aka national weather service) in 1970. he spent a lot of time in Antarctica doing research back in the day, and supposedly invented a lot of the instrumentation that's still used today (the wife claims that he was in the military, and thus never got the credit he'd have gotten if he was a civilian)... he's a smart guy, that's for sure.

Has everything I need. I don't have any problems with the site. Of course, I don't use IE. I use FF.

Same here. Weather.com is fine. Can you please define what you mean by "it sucks"?

OK, when I'm at work, WHERE I CAN'T CHANGE MY BROWSER, it loads OK but when I try to look at the radar, it works until I want to look at something else, then it freezes up until I get a dialog box saying "out of memory at line 56", and the website closes. Sometimes it will freeze up and give me that message when I'm not doing anything.
At home, where I have viewed the website on BOTH FIREFOX AND IE, it loads ungodly slow. It will seriously sit on a blank white screen and say "waiting for www.weather.com/whateverbullshitcomesafterwww.weather.com" for 3-4 minutes or however long it takes me to say fuck it. Only occasionally will it ever load.

In general, the setup of the website is shit. The menus are ass, and the ads that pop up when you roll your mouse in the general direction piss me off. Moreover, finding out how hard the wind is going to blow outside of today and tomorrow is a pain in the ass (wind is very important where I live). It is just bloated full of bullshit that I don't need or use. I don't give 2 fucks about the weather at golf courses in Sidney. It is half a mile from my house. Seriously. I just want the weather for Sidney, that's it. I fucking hate it.

Posted via Mobile DeviceA browser. For me, it works great with this place. Most of the places I visit on the web it works great. A lot of people don't like it. Its a ton better than IE. Faster. I'm not a fan of FF. I just cannot get used to it, and its performance is no better than Opera, IMO.

That's what I use... I can only use weather.com if I'm using FF with adblock, and I still get popups every once in a while and it's still too slow. noaa's animations are seamless.

If you like weather.com, but don't want to deal with the crap that comes with it, go to http://xhtml.weather.com ...it's the mobile site. No animations, but it's a simple way to get current/36hr/hour-by-hour/10-day or a regional map.

I've started using mobile sites on my laptop a little bit for the really bloated sites, especially when I already have 10 tabs open... xhtml.weather.com and m.espn.com are the two big ones.
