Storm Prediction Center WebPage

I've been watching this NOAA site for a while now and find it useful for trying to predict storm tracks and weather systems across the US. It gives a bigger picture than Wfax graphics and shows predicted movement as a slide show.

If you have not used it, you might also find PassageWeather useful. We rely on it to good advantage.

NOAA: your tax dollars at work. Where do you think the Weather Channel gets their data?
