In the past I used to use the U.S. government’s website Hurricane.com to get the latest information on hurricanes and other similar weather patterns in the Atlantic Ocean. But then I found Weather.com, which is from the Weather Channel, and it is far superior in every way. You’ll have to hunt through different pages of data and other things to find what you’re looking for. It’s all right there on the front page of Weather.com.
From the latest on the super typhoon Megi which is destined to hit the Philippines in the next few days and is every bit as strong as Hurricane Katrina was, to the ice tsunamis (if you don’t go what these are just look at the home page for weather.com and click on the link for ice tsunamis) and more.
If there’s an outbreak of tornadoes like in tornado Alley from Texas to Kansas and that area it will be posted on this website. They also make it so it’s very easy to read. Anyone can understand exactly what’s going on and where with the weather. Whereas with Hurricane.com it’s not quite as easy to understand and it takes much longer to find out all the data of what you want.
And unlike with hurricane.com, you can actually get your local weather on weather.com. There is no option for this on the government’s hurricane.com it’s just about hurricanes, tropical storms and depressions in the areas around the US. With weather.com it shows you the weather from anywhere in the world. And it is not limited to just the oceans around the United States.
So for instance if your a travel to China from Los Angeles and you want to know what the weather is in China when you get there you can quickly do that with Weather.com. It is also very reliable and one of the most trustworthy websites to deal with weather out there. There is also featured the bottom of the homepage where you can get an app for your smart phone (iphone or droid) that will alert you to bad weather patterns in your area. That’s pretty neat.
On the homepage they also have sections for the latest pictures and videos on recent weather and related news. So you can quickly get up to speed on the weather in any area of the United States or the world for that matter. And you don’t have to be a geologist or science major to understand what they’re talking about like you kind of do with hurricane.com about the more in depth data from the hurricane hunter planes.
