Want your weather info for free?

The EFF has a short alert, Protect Public Weather Data, urging readers to send a letter to their senators to protest a bill that would prevent the National Weather Service from continuing to release user-friendly weather information. The NWS website is a great source for weather information, including local forecasts (enter your zip in the box on the left), detailed satellite imagery, and even ozone concentration maps for some states. Most of their maps have the ability to show looping views of the last 24 hours, which can be quite interesting (e.g., the GOES visual satellite loop).
