    Default Weather Underground site

    Here is a link to the Weather Underground site - Weather Bug data overlaid on Google maps - for the Mt Washington area. This display is very good.

    I post all my data to the Weather Underground site, its pretty cool.

    It's great for Mount Washington too. There are many years (not sure how many) of weather records, including the full metar code. Plus, you can use their RSS feed to get hourly obs posted to your favorite reader.

    Only downside with KMWN is that the data is only hourly, while many personal stations on that site update much more frequently.

    A little off topic, but a good computer program for weather is The Weather Exchange program by Ambiant Weather. I use this for my home weather station. Very easy to use, no spyware, and you can track multiple stations.

    I have one pc at home dedicated to weather, and one at work dedicated to the program with radar always up.

    Now that is pretty cool, tkahike. I just checked it out breifly. My wife bought me last year a weatehr station that downloads the readings into a program that comes with it into your pc. I havent hooked it up yet, not too good with that kind of thing, but will have help soon from a neighbor. thanks for the info

    I have two Davis Vantage Pro weather stations that feed data to a pc and then onto the Weather Underground site. I just use the Davis data logging software. I found all those after market programs to have entirely too many features. For example, the rate the windchill temperature is changing.
