Online weather services: Weather Underground, My-Cast

Thanks to the new weather, it's no longer enough to catch a TV forecast before going to bed, and the 7-day outlooks are about as reliable as horoscopes. No, the weather these days is more tempermental than an overtired teenager during a full moon. If you plan on...
