If all you need is the simple forecast for the week, there’s a dozen sites you could go to, but where do you go if you’re a weather lover and want to get a fuller understanding of what is actually going on? I’ll share a few of my favorite sources…
The National Weather Service has a ton of info.
The NWS is the US government agency that forecasts the weather and is responsible for issuing tens of thousands of meteorology-related warnings throughout the country annually to inform farmers, aviators, surfers, etc. of all foreseeable dangers. Their website is rich in information but unfortunately a bit crude to navigate so I feel a lot of nice info can be easily missed.
They have a constantly updated forecast report issued straight from the nerdy meteorologists themselves at each of the NWS offices. Their technical reports explain why the weather is the way it is and what the models show are going to happen next so I find them very educational and fascinating.
