Weather Underground Lite

One of my favorite sites to get the latest weather information has always been Weather Underground ( They provide a lot of details about the weather from around the world, and always have what I consider to be the best static/animated radar imagery.

Interestingly enough there’s not even a mention of the “lite” version on their main homepage.

What’s so special about the lite version? It has very few ads on it, and the interface is extremely easy to follow.

If you’re on a slower Internet connection this will definitely be one of the better alternatives.

A cellphone-friendly version of Weather Underground Lite is available at and an iPhone-friendly version is at
