    I watch the weather channel on TV so I usually hit theweatherchannel.com or weather.com but there are SO MANY ads /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif Pop-ups and and floating layers, things over the top of the page /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I dont want a program that sits on the desktop, I usually just set the weather page as my home page on the browser.
    I'd like to find a place that does the motion maps or even live motion maps! /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    So what do you guys use?
    Local TV station? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
    I want to cut down the number of ads I see /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    If you use Firefox, you won't get any popups. I use www.weather.com and have no annoyances whatsoever while using Firefox... /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Try www.wunderground.com

    It does not have that many pop-ups and there is good detailed information, historical data and excellent radar imaging. Having said that, they'll probably load up crap ads.

    Hopefully this one will fit the bill.

    If you have an always-on connection, check out Weather Bug . You can set it to let you know when there is a weather alert in your area. It's pretty cool, but it does show ads unless you pony up for their $19.95 per year service.
