    Those are about the 2 best ones to watch.
    The Weather channel's local on the 8's is the national weather services forecast word for word. AOL's forecast too.
    I watch the radar local,region and the fronts, they give you alot of info.

    www.weather.com (the weather channel) has an excellent Doppler radar that shows you a great deal of what's going to happen. It is updated about every 20 minutes, and shows a 1 hour movement. I also like the NOAA site because they have predicted accumulations.

    Cell phone weather radar

    I have alltel and they have a few programs that display radar on the phone where you can zoom in/out and put it in motion. I find this very helpful while plowing. Well worth the couple bucks a month

    I have this site on my favorites http://www.theweathernetwork.com/ not sure how it is for the states. They say they have forecasts for all American and Canadian cities. I tend to watch the radar maps more then the forecast. Locally I can watch a hottie give me the weather for breakfast lunch and supper. Hearing no snow is easier coming from a blond woman then some old balding man. :nod:

    I like to use several weather websites, but mainly I use Intellicast, NOAA, and this one from IGES ( http://grads.iges.org/pix/wx.html ). If you select the Northern Hemisphere Animation ( http://grads.iges.org/pix/movie.html ), you get to see a 4 week animation of high and low pressure systems as they move about the northern half of the globe. The first two weeks of the animation are actual data, but the second two weeks are forecasted. Once you learn how to read this map, it’s pretty useful for a glimpse of the weather two weeks out.

    the best way I have found out is to look out the window. It's better then the weather guy's.

    Ditto on the weather bug. Easyest one I've used. They have many local cams too plus weather staions at many local schools instead of the major air ports.
