I love weather websites. Watch the clouds roll in, compare forecasts. Weather Underground is my favorite. But then I ran into WeatherSpark. Check it out. Dodgeball weather looking good:
Click the map to go to WeatherSpark with some of my settings. It looks complicated, and it is. But well worth figuring out. Besides forecasts all graphically shown. You can select the cloud cover graph, wind speed graph, wind direction graph, rain accumulation, all sorts of stuff. But the cool thing is to go back into the past. Currently anything after 2007 and you can playback the storm. Watch the clouds roll in for last year’s Halloween storm. Watch the wind direction as Irene comes ashore.
It’s in beta testing so the data will likely go back all the way to your birthday soon.
Rubber Duck Bonus tip: once you pull the slider back and forth (down in the bottom right) so that a past storm is showing, CLICK and DRAG across the hours you want replayed in the map on the left. Now run the cloud movie (slider below map.)
