    Those prices..highway robbery anyone? On the other hand, too many of these, especially the add-ons for browsers, haven't worked right or, mostly, been accurate for quite some time. If you've got Windows 7 at least, just use the desktop gadget provided.

    I trust the BBC weather announcements, usually someone just opens a window & if it's raining outside Broadcasting House, Portland Place, they assume the whole country will be the same. If it's really important, there's always Meteoalarm.

    :D

    I agree on the window, heck, the clouds alone (or lack thereof) will tell you pretty much all you need to know.

    Snow's pretty easy to spot as well, as it's normally white & falls from the sky. ;)

    Yes it was a good little app. :( Very pricey of TWC! Could it be a decision made by NBC hmmm...

    Maybe it's worth mentioning that lately I have been using the re-designed Myweather.com more and more.

    Under the "Current radar" tab.
    It as 5-min radar updates in the U.S, and 30-min cloud cover updates.

    And under the "Future cast" tab, you will find nicely animated forecasts of
    Sky conditions, Rain totals, Snow accumulations, Ice accumulations, Temperature, Feels like, Humidity, and Wind speed.

    Intellicast.com's Weather Active Map is also one of the better ones.

    I am a weather freak so I have many weather sites that I use :p

    Edit:
    The above sites are great for Americans but not so much for Europeans (like me) in terms of real-time Radar and Satellite. So I thought it might be best to mention something for people on this continent as well ;)

    For real-time satellite 15-min updates we have Sat24.com (choose contry/area in the upper left corner)
    Europe satellite here: http://www.sat24.com/en/
    And for those who live on the African continent plus Saudi-arabia can use this: http://www.sat24.com/af

    Though when it comes to Radar it's a bit complicated because each country owns their own radar network and afaik there's no site that shows the whole continent because of restrictions, licenses, etc...

    BUT if you own an iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone 7, Blackberry, or webOS device.
    And is a weather freak like me then WeatherPro is the right weather app for you.
    Has very nice global Satellite coverage, but it also has fantastic Radar coverage for both the EU and the U.S.
    Read more about it here: http://www.weatherpro.eu/home.html

    PS. Sorry for a little off-topic but since we are talking about weather I needed to share :p
