What is the most reliable weather forecast source you all depend on? Especially for wind predictions

I like the 10-day graph on Wunderground because it shows wind, temp, and barometric all in one easy-to-see graphic...

I'm with Gamblinman.

www.usairnet.com then go to weather.

Aviation Forecast. And as an example plug in KGVT in the ICAO airport identifier.

That is Greenville, Texas which is close to Lake Fork as an example.

I also use www.myforecast.com

Weather Bug app is the most accurate that I have used. It's the only app we used at my old job were we had to plan around weather.

I like this one: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/radar_tab.php
Type in city and State in upper left hand corner, hit go. Scroll down next page right side bar till you see hourly weather forecast. Click on symbol and you'll see 6 days worth of good data. Very accurate out to 36 hours. Will look like this:

Hogon,FYI... the airport identifier in my link is for the Wood County Airport, which is quite a bit closer than the Greenville airport. It is only 5.5 miles SSE behind the Lake Fork dam, according to Google Earth.

Thank you, sir! I'm a senior meteorologist there, so take pride in what we do. We do all the warnings, watches, etc for N-Central and parts of Central TX.

Need any info, just holler!

Oh and yeah, head to www.weather.gov/fwd on your LT or PC. If ya need mobile, we have have a "mobile website" (we can't profit from "apps" due to we're fed government).

Go to any browser on your phone (Safari, whatever), type in mobile.weather.gov (no "www"), put in zip codes or cities for as many sites as you want. When done, go to "Set to homescreen". It'll pop up on your android or iPhone like an app. Go into it and you'll get everything you can get on our webpage.

The radar data isn't as high end as say "MyWeather" or "Radarscope"(which ya have to pay for, ours is free), but otherwise you can read our discussions, see radar, get our forecasts, warning, watches, etc.

Thanks from a longtime, fellow TFF member and NWS employee.

The Weather Channel, really? C'mon man, they are in Atlanta, GA and their forecasts are TERRIBLE for here, not to mention, they profit from you, we don't and they could give a rats about Texas.
