For many years, people complained that Weather.gov looks pretty bad and that they truly need a redesign. But last year they did just that – a total redesign overhaul of the website. While it might not look like all the template-based websites out there today, it looks great for the service it provides.
Weather.gov – Offering Accurate Predictions
One of the biggest advantages of using this website as a reference is the fact that they actually offer the most spot-on weather predictions for the time being. And it’s been doing this for years now, generating for itself the popularity it enjoys today.
The main page offers an overview of the US, with color coding representing different sorts of warnings for expected weather changes. Clicking on any given area will lead you to a local page offering a specific overview of the selected area. Details like temperature variations, expected precipitation, wind speeds, humidity, barometer and visibility are available for each city and region. Aside from that, you get a general extensive forecast spanning on 7 days, along with short weather descriptions for each day and night in that week.
Weather.gov works pretty good, loading times are fast and there are a lot of other worthwhile resources on it as well. For example, there’s a news section, an information center and a past weather section as well.
