  •  Weather Underground does not use the names yet (6+ / 0-)

    Since they were bought by the Weather Channel several months ago, that may be only a matter of time, but I doubt that it will happen while Dr. Jeff Masters is running the place.

    Hey, hey, NRA, how many kids did you kill today?

      the weather underground.  That was my favorite weather site, but now I'm certain TWC will fuck it up.  

      I could never figure out why people like TWC.  They're not very accurate, and whenever I check out the channel on the TV Machine it's a long wait until they actually report the freakin' weather.

      •  All of them piggyback on NWS (0+ / 0-)

        Though recently WU has a supplemental program that they add to NWS. None do their own work.

        Nate says NWS is the most accurate.
