My phone included an app that polls AccuWeather.com. I've checked their site too. I like it.

I use a professional weather station for PRECISE micro weather measurements and for a micro 24-48 hour forecast in our area. On a macro level I just use the local news.

I generally just look out the window. But if I really need more info than that, it's usually weather.com or wunderground.com

I doubt just looking out the window will tell you if there's 12" of snow coming your way. Thanks for the help though smirk

I live in what seems to be an odd micro-climate (north side of the Oak Ridges Moraine) in the middle of nowhere, and haven't found a city/location on weathernetwork or any other site that has weather even vaguely similar to what I get here.

After I started taking flying lessons I went onto the Environment Canada site and found very good weather maps that (combined with ground school lessons) gave a good picture of expected weather pretty much anywhere, but (a) I gradually forgot the ground school lessons, and (b) one day I forgot which buttons to press on the EC web site and that was pretty much the end of my ability to anticipate the local weather.

Now I look out the window like everyone else.

For anyone concerned about my apparent lack of retention re: flying and ground school lessons, don't worry , I didn't actually get my pilots license. I was OK with spins but stalls pushed all my panic buttons (fear of heights and love of flying have to collide somewhere) and I decided that it would be safer for everyone if I wasn't sitting in the left seat.

A number of people suggested that the problem was actually a result of flying with a yoke rather than a stick, and one day I have to see if that is actually the case. I figure if I give the instructor a stun-gun and pre-approval to use it if necessary it should be relatively safe for both of us.

John that's odd, I'd think most experienced pilots would guess that spins rather than stalls would push the panic buttons with beginner pilots. I developed a fear of heights only after I started flying, walked many 12" wide bridge beams carrying an 8x4' sheet of plywood or a shoulder stacked with rebar back in my younger constructions days but you couldn't get me near one now without having a panic attack although flying has never bothered me in the least.

I don't remember ever hearing anything about about the stick vs the yoke making flying any easier from your regard with stalls and heights but it will most definitely sharpen your groundwork skills and if you really enjoy flying you ought to give it a shot, my guess is that you'll be so mentally busy with thoughts of landing whenever you hit the stalls you'll not even remember them ... painless!
