    The "the technology and features that you have come to rely on will continue to live on wunderground.com." line is bullshit. I can't find anything remotely resembling the Intellicast weather map interface. It is just the generic Weather Channel regional maps and the Wundermap.

    I think the Weather Channel has bought up all of the major competition websites to degrade the online offerings and drive eyes back to TV.
    Weather Channel has either purchased or owns many of the other weather sites like wunderground.com. But Accuweather is the one that is still independent and completely separate operation and forecast. Weather Channel and the other one's under its control are in Altanta area and an IBM division since 2016 according to Wikipedia "subsidiary of the Watson & Cloud Platform business unit of IBM" after NBC Universal and the other venture capital owners sold it.

    Accuweather is out of State College and comes from PSU Meteorology department (started by a Grad Student to sell weather reports to companies- Utilities etc.) Founder then later became a PSU Professor of Meteorology and later acquired WeatherData...

    Interesting take on public vs private weather providers...



    It would royally suck if that AccuWeather guy gets appointed as head of NOAA.

    I don't know about other states but NY has an incredible network of detailed stations around the state. There's at least one per county and the amount of data is impressive including soil temps and composition on the site. If anyone knows of similar in other states I need the link. Dig around in here there's all sorts of useful info. http://www.nysmesonet.org/networks/standard

    don't know about that GL, sorry. but came here to mention the windy.com satellite layer which is cool for checking out cloud cover, movement etc. Very detailed images that you can set in motion both past and future.

    Windy.com is a little irritating at times but has just a shitload of information on it and it's international and basically crowdsourced and probably not going to be swallowed up by the likes of accuweather etc. and deserves some support.

    Intellicast via direct ip address is still my go to source for live data.

    www.ventusky.com is a close backup. I note their snowcover map overlay is pretty accurate in New Egland and the northeast right now.
