Online weather info ?

Unread post by faintfuzzies »

Can someone advise me to an accurate web site that will give me the nightly weather conditions . for example i would like to check a site out right now to see if tonight will be clear, I go to a weather site but i know there is better out there and more in tune to astronomy.


May you always have Clear Dark Skies

I don't trust any of the CSC's. I just track the cloud cover on Accuweather. In the end, you will be a happier person. :shock:

I use the CSC, but I also use ... op-12.html and project in my minds eye how the clouds are moving over the 12 hour loop.
Clear skies,
