INTELLiCast Weather Service
INTELLiCast provides one of the most colorful and user-friendly sources of current weather information, images, and forecasts on the World Wide Web. (It's a lot like a TV weather report.) The service, created by WSI Corp, covers national and international weather as well as the weather in several major U.S. cities. Much of the information is updated daily.
The Daily Planet
The Daily Planet contains an electronic textbook of multimedia instructional modules designed around different topics in meteorology, such as pressure, wind, and clouds. It also features pointers to up-to-date climate data, satellite images, surface maps, and more. This useful resource is provided by the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
WeatherNet and the Weather Underground
WeatherNet, created by Michael MacDonald, provides a superb collection of links to weather data, graphics, movies, shareware, live camera views, and more! Be sure to check out the link to the Weather Underground page for information about its collection of K-12 classroom activities and projects designed to support earth sciences education. Both of these fantastic services are hosted by the University of Michigan Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic, and Space Sciences.
