Main Street Weather (Weather Home Base!!)

Here is a collection of the weather links I visit on a daily basis, some more than others depending upon the weather situation and time of year. I use these sites in my teaching and to fulfill my insatiable appetite for the weather. There are a wide variety of sources ranging from the best weather machines to regional weather, FAX, radar, single frame satellite imagery, computer model forecasts, hurricanes, typhoons, MPEG movies (visible, infrared & water vapor) and buoy data from the Atlantic, Pacific, and Gulf of Mexico. Just what did weather fanatics do for fun before the invention of the internet?
