I use Internet to find just about every type of information. Even weather.
Sure, I could just stick my head out window and call out, "Hello. What's weather forecast today?" But if response is "hurricanes, hail and meteor storms", I don't want my head to be on wrong side of window when answer comes down.
Plus, that won't help me fine-tune my last minute travel plans.
So I turn to Internet. There are three really easy ways to get a good weather forecast over Internet:
Weather forecast websites:
There are some good weather forecast websites. The one I use most often, because I am in Canada, is The Weather Network, and I also like CNN.
CNN gives current conditions and a five day forecast. The Weather Network provides more detail, with a short term forecast ( this evening, tonight, tomorrow morning, etc.) and a longer term forecast over next six days. The Weather Network provides most detail of all options, but it takes longer to download than progress of climate change (so don't do it on a 26K modem!) Both offer forecasts for cities worldwide.
Weather forecast software:
A second way, which does not even require going to a website, is to get current conditions right on your desktop. There are free weather forecast software downloads that display key data right on your desktop, and even provide a text summary one click away.
