Weather Websites...which One Do You Use?

Fri Mar 21, 2003 12:25 pm

Ok, I just ran a search for Online Weather Service and No Matches came up for the last 6 months...Ok getting that out of the way here is my question:

I schedual my lesson with my CFI early in the week for the weekend. Unfortunatly, I know of any weather info except weather.com and my local TV News Team....Usually they are off and I schedual the wrong day=wasted week to fly.

Anyways, Do any of you know of a website that can offer Aviation Weather Info or Metars? My Local airport that I fly out of is a 15 minute drive and personally, I don't want to drive down there when Im suppose to be at school to check the weather to schedual a lesson. Rather, I'd like to check it on the Web! So, Do ya'll know of any good websites for Aviation Weather Info?


Thanks

I do know (and this is my favorite) about accuweather.com here and they offer a section of the weather reports for people who fly.

It has since changed its website design so you might need to do a little searching; it's probably named "aviation weather" or something like that.

I'm not really committed to one site over another, but I usually got accurate information if I Google METAR and Terminal Aerodrome Forecast.

DUAT is nice...you need to have a pilots cert (student,etc) to use this service. Another nice one i have found is http://adds.aviationweather.gov This is a nice interactive site provided by NOAA and NWS

Weather Underground, out of University of Michigan:

I am particularly fond of their severe weather & tropical weather maps:
