Wunderground has been my go-to weather webpage for ages, and the recently launched FullScreenWeather reminds me why. Simply put, this online weather service is the web’s no-nonsense answer to your parent’s beloved weatherman.
When you load the site you’ll be asked where you live. Type your location and you’ll be a shown a Google Map highlighting temperatures in your area. To the left of this will be the current conditions, as well as your five-day forecast.
But that’s not all. You can change the map to show cloud patterns in your area, as well as current precipitation: all you need to do is click the links at the top of the screen (nothing happened for me, because I live in sunny Colorado, but I’m sure the rest of the world will find this quite useful).
Finally, if you want more detail than this service can offer, a link to Wunderground will take care of the rest. This is going to be my new weather service of choice, that’s for sure.
