    This is a GREAT website for current weather conditions where you are. We use(d) this for storm predicting at a very large, local amusement park. Hope this helps some out. Wanted to contribute something substantial to say thanks for all the info I've gleaned from this site, so far:

    Thanks for the info!
    I also use Weather Underground Rapid Fire. It gives live weather feed from my local weather station at the local yacht club, with live wind updates.
    I find it to be more accurate than general weather for my region, (sometimes 30-60min delayed), especially the live info for wind speed and direction, wind gusts, temperature, humidity.
