Good links triple T.

I use this link as my one stop weather shopping spot: Pacific NW 7-Day Zones Forecasts

A nice feature is after you click the appropriate zone it gives you the option to click on a second, more detailed map for a "detailed point forecast" which appears on the right. Doing this will give you the forecast (how accurate it is I'm still determining) for the particular location and elevation.

Good example: Mt Stuart Play around with clicking different points on the detailed map and watch how the location (given as a distance from some town) and elevation change.

Cool NOLSe, I never noticed that you could move the forecast point on the detail map. Thanks for sharing... Now if there was only a way to find out if it's accurate!

Now if there was only a way to find out if it's accurate!

Last week Iwas usuing that feature to get forcasts for Banks lake. I'd have to say it was resonably accurate, the conditions were a bit scrambled (sunny when it was forcast to be cloudy etc) but the temps were pretty close. I was mostly watching the lows and the actuals were within 5-7 degrees of forcast, I think.

In the days prior to the trip it was interesting to watch the forcast change, the forcast thursday low changed from something like 5 degrees on monday to -17 on tuesday morning - So it pays to check one last time as you leave.

I do view most of the above links listed when going out to play but I always click the links below to see the current local time lapse radar images.

here is the big picture:

and here is the closer view:

obviously, this is great for short term instant information on what is happening NOW! For mutiple day outtings, you definately want to consult one of the other links that gives a forecast. (which this link does not do)
