I used to use wheather.com, and I liked it.


For Cincinnatti.

Now is bites. It doesn't know my time zone when watching weather radar and it is super slow to load.
It has this new feature where it shows "past" or "future" weather. It bites.





I'm looking for online, time accurate, weather radar that shows current rain storms.




Anyone have a suggestion?

(I use the internet from a desktop. I do'nt have an smart phone.)

I find Weather Underground to be the most accurate most of the time. And the Wundermap is freaking awesome.

NOAA - Weather from the .gov

enter your zipcode, and it takes you to your local weather forcast.

Click on the radar map 1/2 way down the page on the right. Lots of radar options. I like the "standard map", "composite loop" option.

It is in my time zone also and it is Military time. That kicks extra special ass.

I use this one. If you look down your page you'll find an option for hourly weather graph and that thing is awesome. Like all weather it can change but it will let you know that the rain isn't going to start until 8PM so you can make it back form work without a problem.

weatherbug.com

go to weather & maps, then to interactive maps for great radar.

they also have good forcasting.

I use NOAA and it's usually pretty good....the nearest weather station is 75 miles from here at the lil' airport in Miles City...

My personal favorite. Tends to be pretty accurate.

No ads or other bullshit.

If you're so inclined, you can also click on "forecast discussion" in the box in the lower right corner. It's given in weather lingo but most should be able to get the gist of what is said. Offers more insight to the forecast.

why don't you go to the web site of one of your local TV stations.
They usually have a link that you can put on your desktop.

Lots of chasers use this.

The difference you will find will be the definition. Whereas you will be able to zoom in and see accuracy within say a neighborhood instead of a general area as say a town. It makes a BIG difference.
