NOAA Weather Radio Online and Weather Via RSS
The National Weather Service says that you may be in for some bad weather. How are you going to keep up with the changes? You could hunt around to find a local radio station that actually gives the complete weather forecasts, you could turn on the TV and hope they say something, or you could use a service that delivers the weather to your computer.
rssweather.com delivers the current weather conditions to you through RSS technology. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication and can be read through a variety of programs and websites.
Using this service is simple, and you'll love the convenience of getting the up to the minute weather conditions.
