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.

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

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